Seniors and Parents,
The Baccalaureate Ceremony, for the class of 2019, will be held on Thursday, June 6 at 7:00 at St. Rocco in Avondale.
It’s a lovely and traditional part of all graduations. In addition to attending, seniors are always part of the service as speakers, readers, ushers, musicians, or vocalists. If you have an interest in participating or questions about it, see Ms. Lamoreux in room 104.
In addition to the traditional commencement ceremony with its cap and gown and congratulatory handshakes, valedictorian speech (or speeches) and recognition of outstanding achievements, high schools also have baccalaureate ceremonies. Formally defined as a service to honor the graduating class, the baccalaureate is a quieter, more reflective event that focuses on students’ personal growth and achievement. The baccalaureate can often be a more substantive and meaningful experience for parents and students alike.
