2020 Cap Challenge

  • Decorate Your Cap' Challenge: We will be challenging seniors to decorate their graduation caps and submit images for a competition! There will be prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place caps. Check out the video below for the rules and information about the contest. Students will be able to pick up their caps and gowns next week (explained below) and photos of your decorated caps will be due by 11:59pm on Thursday, May 28th.


  • Cap & Gown Pick-up: Seniors will be able to pick up their caps & gowns in the rear parking lot at Shawsheen on Wednesday, May 13 (weather permitting), in accordance with the rules outlined below to ensure safety and proper social distancing for everyone involved:

    • Students must enter during the appropriate time frame, based on the first letter of their last name:
      • 11:00am - 11:30am = A-C
      • 11:30am - 12:00pm = D-F
      • 12:00pm - 12:30pm = G-L
      • 12:30pm - 1:00pm = M-O
      • 1:00pm - 1:30pm = P-S
      • 1:30pm - 2:00pm = T-Z
    • Students must come in separate vehicles in order to adhere to rules for social distancing -- vehicles with multiple students will not be allowed to enter
    • Students must enter and exit the parking lot through the rear entrance on Cook Street next to the Automotive and Metal Fab shops
    • Students must remain in their cars at all times - we will pass caps and gowns through car windows

    If you are experiencing a hardship that does not allow you to pick up your cap and gown under these conditions, please email me at jcook@shawtech.org.

    We cannot wait to get you your caps and gowns and see your entries for the Decorate Your Cap Challenge!
