    • Login with parent created user name and password
    • Select “PowerSchool” tile
    • PowerSchool will bring up a page that shows information for the student. If you have more than one student, there are tabs in the upper left hand corner where you can select which student you want to view.
    • Select “Balance” with the coin icon in the left margin. That will lead you to a page that shows fee transactions and a payment button.

    Thursday, May 12, is the last full day of classes for Seniors. Teachers will sign the Check-Out Sheet and record either a pass/fail or letter grade on the Report Card Form. Teachers WILL NOT sign either form before Thursday.

    Friday, May 13, Senior Check-out is 8:20-11 a.m. in the East Gym. Both the Check-Out Sheet and Report Card Form must be fully completed before students may check out.

    Tickets

    Prom tickets will be available online through the CCHS website beginning May 9 (you can access the ticket link HERE). Your receipt serves as the ticket. Prom tickets are $25 per person with paid Activities Fee, and $30 per person without a paid Activities Fee. Tickets are $35 per person at the door (cash/credit card only). Free and Reduced students should visit the Activities office to update paperwork and get on the ticket list. Online tickets must be purchased by noon on Friday, May 13. Tickets purchased after that time will need to be at the door. Remember, After Prom is free!

    All PowerSchool fines must be paid prior to purchasing a Prom ticket. If you cannot add your item to the cart, you or your guest may have an outstanding school fine.  Please check your PowerSchool accounts and pay any outstanding balances. Once the fine is paid in full, it can take up to 24 hours for RevTrak to be updated and then you can purchase your ticket(s)! 

    Graduation tickets will be distributed at Senior Check-Out. Each graduating student receives 10 tickets* for the graduation ceremony. Extra tickets are not available. If additional tickets are needed, please have students request them from friends who do not need their full allotment.

    Conduct

    The graduation ceremony is a celebration for graduates and their families. Everyone attending deserves the opportunity to enjoy the ceremony. Excessive cheering and noise for a specific student diminishes the experience for the next graduate, so please hold your applause until the end of each diploma group. In line with District policy and State law, Cherry Creek High School reserves the right to remove any individual from graduation whose behavior or appearance serves to detract from the dignity of the occasion. All graduates and guests are expected to participate in a dignified manner. Any inappropriate behavior during second semester or at this year’s Prom may jeopardize a Senior’s participation in the graduation ceremony.

    Weather Information

    In case of rain or other inclement weather at 8 a.m., the ceremony may be postponed or possibly rescheduled. Information regarding the postponement of graduation can be found on the CCHS Website, Facebook or Twitter feed @cchsactivities.  If weather forces graduation to be rescheduled, the ceremony may be held as late as Saturday. Travel plans should be made with this scenario in mind.
