LDHS seniors are in the final stretch of their high school careers and are anticipating graduation on Wednesday, June 5. Seniors met as a class recently to begin preparing for the commencement ceremony.
At the meeting, senior Student Council officers provided their classmates with a number of important guidelines to help make graduation a positive experience for the class and their guests. The students began by discussing the significance of each graduate’s moment on stage and the importance of that moment to each senior’s guests on graduation night.
The student leaders asked their classmates to talk to their guests about the dignity of the ceremony. The class emphasized that it desires to be recognized as a class, not as individuals, so applauding or shouting for individual students simply detracts from the next graduate’s moment on stage.
Each LDHS senior will receive six tickets for the ceremony in the Gymnasium. Students were offered the opportunity to request tickets for the live-feed video broadcast in the school’s Lecture Theater.
