Senior Awards Night

This ceremony is to honor students for outstanding academic achievement or for other special award recognition.


This ceremony is a faith-based recognition of graduates and their families. Participation is voluntary. Graduates wear their gowns and stoles to this event.

Graduation Practice/Senior Luncheon

The only required items for students to participate in graduation are a cap (with tassel) & gown and a stole.  You may borrow a gown from a Shawnee Heights graduate, just be sure it fits.  You will still need to purchase a cap & tassel and stole as these items are year specific.

Caps & gowns will be distributed at graduation practice on May 17th.

All Seniors will have lunch provided just prior to the Yearbook Signing Party.

Shawnee Heights High School Summer Drivers Education Program Policies and Procedures

Student Eligibility:  Shawnee Heights High School will offer a summer driver education program for any student residing in USD #450 who is 15 years of age or has completed the 9th grade prior to the first day of classroom instruction.

Graduated Driver License Law:  For information on the Kansas Graduated Driver’s License Requirements for Teen Drivers go to

Program Fee:  A $202 course fee will be charged at the time of initial enrollment in the driver education class. 

Course Requirements:  Drivers Education consists of two parts.  Students are required to attend 5 days of class where they complete their written coursework, then they are required to drive with an instructor for 5 sessions.  The two are described in more detail below:

Written CourseworkStudents are required to attend class May 29, 30, 31, June 1 & 4 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Students who miss more than one day of class may be unable to complete the program.  Students will need to bring a sack lunch each day.

Driving with Instructor:   Students will be required to drive for 5 sessions with an instructor.  Refer to the enrollment form for session dates and times.  When students are scheduled to drive they will report to school (for three hours) the same time every day for five consecutive days.  Students will have an opportunity to sign up for the times and days of their choice. 

Grading Procedure:  No student will be eligible for credit unless that student completes each instructional (classroom and behind the wheel) module at the stated criteria.  Students passing Driver Education will receive one-fourth of elective credit on their transcript.  This class will not count toward the student’s grade point average because grades are based on either credit or non-credit.       

Transportation:  Students will be responsible for finding their own transportation to and from the high school for both the classroom and driving phase of the program.

If interested in the SHHS Summer 2018 Driver Education Program fill out the Application and Enrollment form and turn them both into the High School main office.
