    JCHS Graduation Celebration

    Please read the information below and watch the video with details about the JCHS Graduation Celebration:

    On Saturday our seniors will participate in graduation at JCHS. The ceremony will begin at 8:30 am. Each senior and his/her family is allowed one car. The car should enter the student parking lot near the tennis court and follow the signs and/or person giving directions. There will be a check-in tent located along the path where the senior will receive some of his/her graduation memorabilia. Then the car will travel to the stage. Near the staging area the senior will exit the car and walk to the table to be introduced. The driver of the senior's family car will be asked to pull up to a spot where they can see, photograph and video. The senior will be introduced and he/she will walk across the staging area for photos/video and greetings by Dr. Howard and Dr. Long. The senior will return to his family car and exit the parking lot. This process will be repeated until every senior has received his/her diploma. This ceremony ends at 11:00am. There will be no graduation practice.
