Information for Seniors (2016-2017)
Senior students who demonstrate sound academic and behavioral standards may apply for an on-campus parking permit. A large portion of the front lot, as well as the cutout along Horseneck Road, is reserved for senior students. Seniors who are interested in parking on campus should review and complete the appropriate forms with their parents. Senior parking is determined through a lottery; completed forms should be submitted in the Rotunda by the Main Office on August 22-23, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to noon. The drawing will take place on the afternoon of August 23; winning lottery numbers (including spot number) will be posted to this page by the afternoon. Beginning on August 24 through August 26, students may stop by campus between 8:00 a.m. and noon to pick up their parking permit. Please remember that all paperwork must be complete and all documentation must be valid in order to receive your permit. In addition, a check made payable to the Montville Township Board of Education for $10 must be written and submitted on the same day that the permit is received.
Senior Sign-In and Sign-Out
Senior students who have a study hall during periods 1, 2, 3, or 4 may apply for senior sign-in privileges. Senior students who have a study hall during periods 5, 6, 7, or 8 may apply for senior sign-out privileges. This privilege enables seniors to arrive late to school or leave early on the days they have study hall during the first or last block of the day. Students who are interested in sign-in or sign-out privileges should review and complete the appropriate forms with their parents.
Senior Class Photo
The senior class photo is traditionally taken the first day of school to capture the entire group together at the very beginning of their final year at MTHS. The color photo appears in the Senior Section of our yearbook, Traces. Normal and appropriate attire is required for this photograph. Students who are not in compliance with our school dress code will not be allowed to sit for the photo.
Each year, our school photographer sets appointments for students to sit for senior portraits. Appointments/sitting times are set during the spring of their eleventh grade school year. Packages are available for purchase by students and their families. However, there is no charge for a "yearbook only" pose. Senior portraits taken by the school photographer will appear in Traces.
Senior Memories and Informal Photograph
Every senior is provided with space in the designated section of the yearbook for inclusion of their name, portrait, an informal photograph, and senior memories. This space is allocated to seniors at no charge with the intention of allowing every student to reflect upon their years in Montville and recognize friends and family. Encrypted messages or those with double meanings will not be tolerated. Senior memories which are not in good taste will be removed from the publication without notification to students or their family. Parents/guardians are urged to review senior memories with their child prior to submission to the yearbook staff.
Important Events for Seniors *
Senior Banquet (December 2, 2016 @ The Brownstone - Paterson, NJ)
Unlike Prom, tickets to the Banquet are not sold as "bids" to couples. Single tickets are sold to any student wishing to attend. Student attire is semi-formal; males are expected to wear a shirt/tie and females are expected to wear a dress. This event is not formal; tuxedos and gowns are inappropriate for the Banquet. Students are required to use school transportation to and from this event and may not utilize personal or private transportation. Students may not bring guests from other grade levels or outside of MTHS. Seniors will assemble at MTHS an hour and a half prior to the event and are transported via school bus to the Banquet. Afterwards, students are transported back to the school.
Senior Breakfast (May 19, 2017 @ Crystal Plaza - Livingston, NJ)
All students wishing to attend the Senior Breakfast must purchase a ticket through their class officers or class advisors. The cost of a ticket is determined based on several factors and will be announced closer to the date of the event.
Senior Prom (June 1, 2017 @ The Grove - Cedar Grove, NJ)
All attending students must purchase a “Prom Bid” through their class officers or class advisor. Students are permitted to invite a guest from another grade level or school. However, these guests must register with the class advisor and building administration. Students who bring guests from other schools must also complete a permission form for their guest. The cost of a Prom Bid is determined by the administration and class advisor based on the price per person as set by the outside venue with consideration of decorating and entertainment expenses, and available class funds.
Senior Dessert Feast (June 8, 2017 @ MTHS)
The event is sponsored by the Parent Teacher Council and Drug Awareness Council. The Dessert Feast is held in the MTHS cafeteria during a morning class period in the weeks preceding graduation. Arrays of desserts are provided by the PTC. Representatives from the DAC are present to discuss Project Graduation with the class. Students may purchase tickets for Project Graduation at this time.
