2017 Odyssey Graduation Information!!!!!!
Congratulations, 2017 Odyssey High School graduates! Your big day is almost here. We have a few more weeks of school and then we get to celebrate your achievements in style. Please read the critical information below and share it with your parents. More information will follow as we approach graduation. If you have any questions, please contact us at 702-257-0578.
Senior Due Dates
Before you can walk, you have to work (on your assignments, that is)! Graduating students must be passing all required classes by 4:00pm on Friday, May 26, 2017 to participate in the graduation ceremony. This will allow teachers and counselors the time they require to grade assignments and certify that seniors have met their graduation requirements prior to the graduation ceremony. If you have any questions about what is expected of you in a particular class, please talk to your teacher.
At this time Odyssey has allotted 12 tickets per family for the graduation ceremony. All guests will need a ticket to attend the ceremony. The graduate will not need a ticket. Children sitting on laps will not need a ticket. To request extra tickets please have your son/daughter log into their Odyssey Gmail account and use this Graduation Ticket Request form. If no additional tickets are requested you will receive the 12 allotted tickets, only. You will receive your tickets when you pick up your cap and gown..
Cap and Gown Photos
All graduates were photographed by Seniors@3017 during the week of January 30 – February 3, 2017. The photos are now available for viewing/purchase at the following website:

Cap and Gown
Cap and Gown units are $25. The unit includes a cap, gown, and tassel. At this time cap and gowns have been ordered. If your son or daughter did not turn in their height and weight a shipment of cap and gowns will be delivered and we will do our best to fit your son/daughter.
Cap and Gown units will be available for pick up starting May 22, 2017. Counselors will be checking grades at that time to verify that you have met all the graduation requirements and are eligible to receive a cap and gown. You will be given directions on how to pick up your cap and gown during your normal attendance day. Cap and gown units must be purchased and picked up no later than May 31, 2017.
We will have a limited number of graduation announcements that will go on sale on April 24, 2017. The cost will be $1.50 per announcement. We will sell them on a first-come-first-serve basis.
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 2017 graduates. Speeches should be 2 to 3 minutes in length. The deadline for speech submissions is Friday, May 12 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 general 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 students head. All gowns must be fully zipped. Boys, your gown looks best with a shirt that has a collar.
MANDATORY Graduation Rehearsal
All seniors are asked to meet at the Orleans arena on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm for rehearsal. All seniors are asked to be in attendance. This rehearsal is mandatory.
