    • Students must attend all graduation practices in order to participate in the ceremony!  Please cancel all other commitments during the practice dates and times, as attendance at EACH FULL PRACTICE SESSION IS MANDATORY.

    SENIOR CHECKOUT
    All students are required to complete their “Golden Ticket Checkout Passport” by 1:30pm on Thursday, May 26th.  Students will get information about the check-out process at their mandatory meeting (at Flex Time on either May 10 or May 12 - depending on last name); paperwork will be distributed in English classes on May 17-18.  Students who do NOT complete the check-out process will not participate in the graduation ceremony.

    GRADUATION TICKETS
    Each graduating senior will receive FOUR tickets when they complete their check-out process with Ms. Kardosh.  Parents may request additional tickets for the Graduation ceremony by completing the bid request form located here and on the main Aragon website by Friday, May 13th. We will attempt to accommodate your request.
    If we are not able to fill your request for extra tickets, additional guests will be able to stand in marked sections on the field.  Chairs with ‘u’ bends are allowed on the field and track; chairs that have pointed or pokey ‘feet are NOT ALLOWED as they will damage the turf and track surfaces.  Thank you for your attention to this!

    CAP DECORATING
    Students are welcome to decorate their caps this year, and should follow the instructions included in the Senior Assembly slides, linked here. Please be advised that decorated caps that do not follow these guidelines will be removed from the ceremony and replaced with a new cap.

    THE GRADUATION CEREMONY
    On Thursday, May 26, 2022, the AHS graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m.  To ensure that all of our guests are able to see the event, we will open the North Gate to guests at 4:30 p.m. and close at 5:25 p.m. as we prepare for the graduates to enter the stadium.  Guests arriving after the gates have closed will be able to enter the stadium after the graduates have been seated. 

    Please allow plenty of time for parking so that you do not miss this special event.  Parking is limited in the area surrounding the school – carpooling is strongly encouraged.   

    Please review the following items prior to the event:

    • Appropriate behavior is expected of all students and family members during the Graduation ceremony.
    • If a student is not able to participate in the graduation ceremony, a parent must notify Mrs. Arbizu in writing as soon as possible – we need to know by Wednesday, May 18.
    • Please do not bring noisemakers, balloons, umbrellas, or any other items that may distract from or block a view of the graduation ceremony.
    • Videotaping and photography is permitted only from the seats in the audience.  Guests are not allowed in the stage area during the ceremony.
    • A professional photographer will take your child’s photograph when receiving their diploma and you will receive information on purchasing these photographs.  

    Thank you so much, and we’ll see you at graduation!
