For the first time in two decades, Sikeston High School's graduation ceremony will be conducted outdoors on the football field. In anticipation of the 7 p.m. Thursday event, maintenance employees are working to ensure a picture-perfect scene for the event. On Tuesday morning, a SPS employee checked the edge of the grass to see if any additional mowing was necessary. Tickets are not necessary to attend the outdoor graduation. Thursday is also the last day of classes for all Sikeston students.
