Graduation 2019 Information


Graduation:  Thursday, June 13th at Angel Stadium @ 10:00 am


Dear Parents of Senior Students;
The final week of school for our seniors is rapidly approaching and we know many of you have questions about Graduation and Senior Week activities. We hope that this letter provides you with most of the information you will need. Should you need further assistance, please contact the Student Center at 714-997-6248.

SENIOR WEEK: Please review the attached Senior Week Schedule with your senior. We encourage all seniors to participate and share these “once in a lifetime” activities with their classmates. Prior to senior week there are no senior ditch days. If seniors participate in one, they risk losing senior week activities including Graduation.

GRADUATION CEREMONY: The graduation ceremony begins promptly at 10:00 am at  Angel Stadium on Thursday, June 13, 2019. This traditional graduation ceremony is held to honor and award students who have completed the required course of study. To ensure that graduates and their families enjoy the ceremony, we request your cooperation as follows:

➢  Please allow enough time for freeway construction, traffic congestion and seating.
➢  Seating is on a “first come, first served” basis beginning at 9:00 am.  Each guest needs a ticket.  Please do not “hold” seats for groups. All seating must be made available at 9:45 am to guests already on hand.
➢  Please do not disrupt the flow of the Senior Roll Call with excessive displays of recognition, so that every senior’s name can be heard.
➢  Please do not interfere others’ views with open umbrellas, taking photos or using video cameras. Remember that a video of the entire ceremony will be available for purchase and a professional photographer will photograph each graduate immediately upon receiving his diploma. 
➢  Please do not bring any balloons, air-horns, etc…they will be confiscated.
➢  It is a good idea to have a location pre-selected for you to meet your senior and guests following the ceremony.

NOTE: Please consider that the ceremony is approximately 1 hour long. Usually on a warm day this may be difficult for young children and/or the elderly. Umbrellas are not appropriate, for they block the view of others.  There will be a nurse on hand.

STUDENT CONDUCT: WALKING ACROSS THE STAGE IS A PRIVILEGE. Any individual senior who displays inappropriate conduct can be removed from the ceremony. Any senior who appears to be under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol will not be permitted to take part in the Graduation Ceremony. We have always been proud of the conduct our seniors display and support their desire to have a Graduation Ceremony they can remember with pride.

CAP & GOWN: All Seniors participating in Graduation Ceremonies are required to wear the cap and gown, without exception. For late purchases or any questions, please contact the Student Center at (714) 997-6248.

TICKETS: Admission to Graduation is by ticket only. Each senior will receive ten (10) tickets on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 during graduation practice.  We will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests for extra tickets, but cannot guarantee additional tickets. Additional tickets may be requested by turning in the enclosed form by May 24, 2019 to Mrs.Guerrero in the Counseling Office.

PARKING: Parking is available in the Angel Stadium parking lot. We strongly encourage you to allow sufficient time for freeway construction and traffic congestion around the school. Directions and a map are included. Please obey all traffic laws and parking codes.

DIPLOMA PICK UP: Diplomas will be available for pick up the following day after Graduation, June 14, 2019. Pick up will be at the Attendance windows from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Your student must be present with ID to sign and receive their Diploma, no exceptions. Diplomas picked up after June 14th will be located in room 300 with Mrs. Perez.  If not picked up by 6/14, they will be available after 8/5. No exceptions.

PHOTOGRAPHS:  Grad Images will mail proofs home 7 to 10 days after the ceremony for purchase.  Since Grad Images is an outside company, info about photographs taken at Graduation will be given to students during practice.
