All speeches should be submitted to Sara Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions regarding content or if you need guidance in the writing of your speech please see Ms. Smith.
There are handicap accessible seats at the graduation location. If a student’s family chooses to sit in the seats surrounding the accessible seat they must arrive in a timely manner to occupy those seats. All seating is first come first serve.
Graduation Dress Code
All graduates should plan to wear dress clothes to the ceremony. No jeans, tennis shoes, or flip flops will be allowed. Graduation gowns look best if pressed/ironed. Hair should be worn in a style that allows the cap to fit on the top of the student’s head. All gowns must be fully zipped. Boys, your gown looks best with a shirt that has a collar.
