Graduation Guests,
This year with three schools having graduation on the same day, the turn-around will be quick so we are asking for your help. We need to clear out the Civic Center as quickly as possible to give the Civic Center staff time to reconfigure graduate seating, clean and have time for the next school to set up. We understand this is an exciting time for you and your graduate but please refrain from taking pictures after the ceremony in the Civic Center.

LifeTouch will be at graduation taking professional pictures and proofs will be sent to each graduate.

Graduation Etiquette
This is an exciting time for graduates and their families. It is a "rite of passage," a very solemn and formal occasion. With this in mind, may we suggest the following rules of etiquette:
• Please stand during the Processional and remain standing until after the National Anthem.

• Please do not disturb others or the view of others in an attempt to take pictures.

• Please refrain from whistling, hollering or blowing airhorns for your favorite graduate… this takes away from the dignity of the ceremony and often embarrasses the graduate.

• The graduates will appreciate that you are there to share in their joy and excitement.

Donations After Graduation

If you don't need your cap/gown after graduation or if you are cleaning your closets and you graduated in 2008- to recent and don't know what to do with that old cap/gown, please consider donating it back to BHS. We have students that are in need and this really helps them.

Graduates prior to 2008, the gown changed a little bit so we can't take those.

Final Transcripts

Final Transcripts are required by future colleges. This transcript confirms to colleges that you did graduate and what the date of graduate was.

When your final decision for college is decided please see Mrs. Schmidt in Student Services to request this be done the week after graduation.

There is a $2.00 processing fee that accompanies that request.
