High School Graduation
High school graduation may seem very far off when a student is a freshman, but in no time at all the big day seems to show up. It is a time that the students really enjoy as all of the limelight is on them. They will soon get to put their school years here behind them and go out into the big work. It is often a time when parents start to realize that their child is becoming an adult. High school graduation can also be scary if you haven’t really decided what your next step will be.
Most high school graduations take place in late may or early June. If you have many schools in the area you should look into reserving halls, rentals of accessories, and even music early if you want to host your own party. You may want to make the high school graduation party a collaborative effort to help with the cost. This is also effective as the students will want to spend time together that night as well.
Most schools have many activities leading up to the high school graduation including prom. There may be dinners and special events to recognize the students. In order to make the graduation go smoothly there are plenty of rehearsals. This is a time for the students to learn what will take place. They find out how they will proceed into the area, the order to go up and get their diplomas, and what will take place during the ceremony.
The graduation ceremony may be very large as some schools have thousands of students. I also know of graduations that have been for a handful of students so they are more intimate. In addition to their being a keynote speaker, the top students of the class will give them a farewell speech to take with them as they head out for new horizons.
Those that have won scholarships to various colleges will have that recognized as well. There are likely to be plenty of happy smiles at any high school graduation. At the same time there are plenty of sad tears that come from both the students and their families. It is an emotional time that you will always want to remember so make sure to take plenty of pictures.
