Afternoon Ceremony Tickets and Information

The tickets will be distributed to each eligible graduate. If you are graduating but not in the building this semester (RAP, finished early, part-time, etc) please pick up your ceremony tickets in the office starting TBD

Activities:

The Ceremony is at the school and begins at 12 pm. Doors will open at 11:00 am and it should be noted that there is no reserved seating. Elderly guests, or those with medical conditions that make it difficult to wait in line, can be brought to the front doors at 10:45 am and will be allowed entrance. The ceremony consists of congratulatory speeches and presentation of certificates to each student concluding by 2:00 pm.

Every SHS grad will receive 6 Ceremony tickets for their guests to be able to attend the afternoon Ceremony on TBA. Separate tickets will be required for each event (Ceremony & Celebration). Because each Graduate will receive only 6 guest tickets to the Ceremony, they are encouraged to ask each other for unused tickets. If not all graduates require 6 Ceremony tickets, more tickets may be released at a later date on a first come, first served basis. Graduates do not need a ticket for themselves. Tickets are required to attend the Ceremony this year in order to comply with fire code regulations and not exceed the capacity of the gym (even children will require a ticket).

WE WILL BE LIVE STREAMING THE AFTERNOON CEREMONY ON OUR STRATHMORE HIGH SCHOOL FACEBOOK PAGE, THEREFORE EXTENDED FAMILY, ELDERLY, AND OR YOUNGER FAMILY MEMBERS CAN GET TOGETHER AND WATCH THE CEREMONY FROM HOME.  CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINK @STRATHMOREHIGHSCHOOL.  CLICK ON THE VIDEO/LIVE (RED BUTTON)
