High School Graduation
- High School Graduation
- 5/19/2017, 7:00 PM – 8:45 PM
Graduation is a joyous occasion for the seniors and their families, and we want it to be celebrated with proper dignity and decorum. Family and friends of all seniors are to hold their applause until all the seniors have been awarded their diplomas. After the last senior receives their diploma, we all can stand together and applaud for everyone.
Seniors are to report to school (senior hallway) no later than 6:00 P.M. The ceremony is an honor and a privilege given to the senior class and will be conducted in a dignified manner. The school reserves the right to remove any student or guest from the ceremony due to behavior, which the school’s administration judges to be inappropriate. The regulation cap and gown (without any additions or alterations) are the required dress. Since graduation is a dress-up occasion, any student attire judged to be inappropriate by the school’s administration may result in that student forfeiting his/her privilege to participate in the ceremony.
Due to the large size of the graduating class seating in the church will be limited. Admission to graduation will be by ticket only (each graduate candidate will each receive (7) admission tickets to the ceremony).
No helium balloons, signs, posters, noise makers, or flowers are allowed in church during the graduation ceremony. Please keep all these items in your cars. During the graduation ceremony all video cameras must be in the back half of the church.
Seniors who fail any class, who fail to make up missing credits, or fail to complete their retreat or service hour project will not meet graduation requirements and thus will not be eligible to participate in graduation.
All seniors participating in the graduation ceremony will receive a diploma cover. Actual diplomas will be distributed by the school’s main office to those who have earned them. The graduation group picture and diploma will be distributed to each graduate by the main office in mid June 2017. Diplomas and graduation class picture will be withheld until all graduation requirements are met, including payment of tuition and fees, academic failures completed, incomplete grades made up, service hour delinquencies completed, all school sports uniforms returned, or any other condition outlined by the school’s administration.
