The graduation ceremony is a formal ceremony that marks an important event in each student’s life.  In order for this to occur, we need the cooperation of every member of the Class of 2013 and each person in attendance.  For most, the highlight of the ceremony is the presentation of the diplomas.  During this time, it is important that everyone present refrain from making any cheers or noises that will distract from a student’s names being heard.  Once all students have received their diploma, a time of celebration will be included in the program.

The commencement ceremony will be webcast live for the 13th year. The link will be available at 6:00 PM on the district website at
