Seniors who have not pre-purchased their cap and gown by this date will be able to purchase a cap and gown on site on May 12. Day-of purchases will be $65 cash or credit card. Tassels can also be purchased for $20 on this day as well.  Questions regarding cap and gown may be directed to our Graduation Products representative Dallas Moon-  


Once received, check the cap and gown package to make sure it is complete. Cap and gown packages should include a cap, gown, tassel, and medallion. If your student purchased the gown, cap, tassel and medallion, he or she will keep all of those items after Graduation. If your student requested a loaner, then the gown, cap, tassel, and medallion must all be returned to the Herff Jones representatives immediately following Graduation outside of Room 301. Diplomas will not be given to students who requested loaners until the loaner gowns, caps, tassels and medallions are returned immediately following Graduation. Once all 4 items are returned, students receive a receipt, verifying the return, which they can show to staff to pick up their diploma. 





Activity Date: May 14, 2021

Location: South Coast Botanical Gardens


Prom 2021, an interactive experience at the South Coast Botanical Gardens, will be held on Friday, May 14th from 7:30pm-10:00pm. Seniors are invited to attend our first ever ‘Moving Prom’ in a group with 45 students whom they may choose. Pending LA DPH Guidelines, the number of students allowed in each group could increase to 75 students. Each group of students will arrive at the Botanical Gardens in intervals of 15 minutes at a pre-designated time.  Prom attendees will be guided through the various experiences at the gardens, including music, DJs, pictures, themed-props, beautiful lighting, airbrush tattoos and stilt walkers! All LA County Guidelines will be followed. 


Please be sure to check the school website and the ASB Instagram account for updates on ticket prices, when time slot sign-ups will go live, and additional information pertinent to Prom. 


Our school needs an accurate count of how many seniors will be bringing guests to this event due to current guidelines and a limit of how many students may be at the gardens at the same time.  We are prioritizing PVHS seniors to attend Prom, but we understand that Prom is also a special time to experience with a significant other and we will make every effort to increase that experience for additional guests.
