Graduation is this Friday at 1pm on the football field. Please meet in the Athletic Field House area located at the lower end of the main parking lot at 12:30 and be ready to line up by 12:45pm, sharp. To make sure everyone can see, umbrellas will not be allowed for the graduates during the ceremony. If rain covering is needed, please get a poncho to wear over your gown. Also, keep in mind you will be walking through grass to get down to the stadium and walking on the football field. Please wear appropriate footwear to walk in uneven grass and to climb the stairs onto the stage. You may decorate your caps, have fun with it!
Rehearsal will be at 8:45 am Friday morning. If you are graduating with honors, you will be given your honor cords at rehearsal. All graduates will be given a card that states your name and degrees/certificates for Dr. Connell to read during the ceremony. At rehearsal, you have an opportunity to add a sentence to thank someone OR share your plans after graduation. One sentence will also be read by Dr. Connell. It is really important that you attend rehearsal to go over this information with Dr. Connell and participate in the walk-through.
This year's graduation ceremony will be live streamed through the FRC Facebook page.
