Graduation is a dignified ceremony! Therefore we are asking that ALL participants adhere to the following recommend behaviors.

 

Graduates:

  2. Chewing gum is not allowed.
  3. Cell phones and other electronic equipment must be left with family members.  Girls should leave their purses with family members as well.

  5. Noise-makers or any other inappropriate items will be confiscated.
  6. Respect the rights of others to hear each graduate’s name called by avoiding excessive clapping and yelling, as well as excessive celebration once you receive your diploma case.
  7. Decorating of the top of the graduation cap is strictly prohibited.
  8. If a graduate acts inappropriately during the ceremony as determined by school administration, he or she will be discretely escorted to the rear of the Civic Center with no other recognition given.  The graduate, accompanied by a parent, may pick up his or her diploma from school.

Family/Friends/Other Guests:

  1. This is a solemn event, not an athletic event; therefore, balloons, air horns and other noise-making devices are prohibited and will result in being escorted from the premises.
  2. Respect the rights of others to hear their graduate’s name called by refraining from excessive clapping, yelling, and talking.
  3. Cell phones and other electronic devices must be turned off or silenced.
