Graduation Ceremony will be held at 7:00pm on Friday, May 24 at Northland, A Church Distributed. All graduates should arrive at 6:15pm and gather where instructed during rehearsal with your cap and gown on. The graduation ceremony lasts approximately 1½ hours.

Senior Display Boards - Link to Examples of Boards

Senior display boards are a special part of graduation.  Parents prepare these and decorate them with pictures and other mementos of the student's life, interests, and high school years.  They are a wonderful way to honor your graduate! Display boards are provided by the school.  Be sure your student picks one up in the high school office beginning April 1st.  I do have additional boards if your student’s board gets messed up. 

Completed boards will be set up at Northland, A Church Distributed during graduation rehearsal.  They will be on display in the foyer for family and friends to view at graduation on May 24.  They must be taken home that evening. If you have any questions regarding senior display boards, please contact Stephanie Bennett at 407-339-0223 X221 or via email at sbennett@ocsrams.org.

There are no tickets for graduation.  Seating is first come, first serve.  Reserved seating is not permitted.  Doors to the auditorium will open at 6:15pm.  If you have a family member who is in a wheelchair, please be sure to let us know by Friday, May 11 so that we can make appropriate accommodations.  Contact Stephanie Bennett at sbennett@ocsrams.org if this is a need for your family.

Graduation Rehearsal/Senior Brunch

Graduation Rehearsal will be held on Friday, May 24 at 10:00am.  We will begin graduation rehearsal with a senior brunch.  This is a time for students to eat, relax, set-up and view each other’s display boards, and watch their senior video.  We will be done at approximately 12:00pm with the rehearsal.  Rehearsal is mandatory!  Please do not schedule any appointments during this time.
