You will be given directions on how to pick up your cap and gown at a later date.
Announcements and Other Graduation Swag
All orders must be placed with Jostens by December 22, 2017. There is no guarantee that items can be personalized after that date.
Senior Speeches and Poetry
Each year OCHS Administration picks several students to speak at graduation. It is always one of the high points of the graduation ceremony. The opportunity to submit a speech is extended to all 2018 graduates. Speeches should be 2 to 3 minutes in length. The deadline for speech submissions is Friday, April 27, 2018 at 4:00 pm. All speeches should be submitted to Sara Smith at email@example.com. 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.
