Sequence of Events:
5:00 p.m. - Chorus members warm up in the robing room
5:15 p.m. - All seniors assemble in the robing room (you will be shown its location at rehearsal) NO LATER THAN 5:30 p.m. LEAVE EARLY! REMEMBER 5:00 TRAFFIC!
6:00 p.m. - Processional begins promptly
Do not plan to leave anything of value in the robing room. A photographer will take your picture as you receive your diploma. You will receive future instructions from the Alumni Office about how to obtain a DVD of both the ceremony and the Senior Video, if you should want one.
PARENTS: You have already received detailed information about obtaining your tickets to graduation. Because you will have to present your tickets for admission, be sure to keep them in a safe place and remember to bring them the night of the ceremony. All in your party will receive a ticket stub upon admission to the ceremony; you will need to use these to re-enter the sanctuary if you have to leave the building for any reason before or during the ceremony. Watchorn Hall, the overflow room, will be equipped with a 21-foot screen to show a live feed of graduation from the processional to the recessional. Graduation will also be filmed.
SENIORS: AFTER THE CEREMONY, BE SURE TO RETURN YOUR GOWN TO US IN THE ROBING ROOM AND RECEIVE YOUR DIPLOMA!*
*If you have not completed your community service requirement, your diploma will be held. Check with Ms. Amy Reynolds if you have any questions about your hours. No diplomas will be given to those with outstanding bills either, so be sure to take care of all financial obligations prior to graduation.
