GRADUATION CEREMONY – Monday 6/17 5:00 pm @ Key Arena
In order to participate in the commencement program, students will need to follow these procedures:
Attend Mandatory Rehearsal Monday June 17, 2013, in the Gym from 8:00 – 10:00 am
The rehearsal is mandatory in order to participate in graduation. All rehearsal participants must be cleared of fines, have complete check-out and met all graduation requirements.
Dress: Boys must wear shirts with collars and slacks; ties are recommended. No shorts, jeans or Flip-Flips are permitted to walk. Girls should wear a dress, skirt or nice slacks. Students will not be allowed to alter or add to the graduation caps or gowns. No leis are permitted to be worn. Sashes will be issued at rehearsal.
Behavior: Since the graduation exercises serve a serious purpose, students exhibiting inappropriate behavior at graduation or rehearsal will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.
The event held at Key Arena is school sponsored. Therefore inappropriate behavior will lead to disciplinary action including ejection from the arena and removal from the ceremony.
Tickets: Each graduate will receive 10 tickets during rehearsal. Students who requested additional tickets will pick them up AFTER rehearsal from the Counseling Center.
At Key Arena: Graduates are to report to the Thomas Street entrance at Key Arena by 4:00 pm. No guests are allowed in the Graduation Staging area.
· Doors will open for the audience at 4:30 pm. Because there are three (3) ceremonies June 17th, Key Arena will be cleared between ceremonies – please do not arrive earlier than 4:15 pm. Guests will enter through the east (fountain side) or west (First Avenue North) doors.
· Tickets will be collected before entering the ceremony. One ticket per adult guest.
· Food concessions will be closed. Key Arena does not allow food or beverages to be brought in. Handicapped seating is in Sections 103, 107, 114 and 127.
