Graduation

2019 Final Senior Reminders

Graduation is coming!  I wanted to reach out with a few last minute reminders.

Graduation practice will take place at LBHS on Thursday, May 16 beginning at 8am.  You will need to enter campus through the rotunda.  Caps and gowns should NOT be worn to graduation practice.

To save you time on May 16, please make sure you have turned in all of your textbooks and have cleared all financial obligations prior to graduation practice.  If there is anything outstanding, your graduation tickets will be held until all issues are resolved.  Textbooks can be turned in on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 14 and 15 during both lunches in the courtyard.

There are 2 senior only CROP sessions that will be held in the media center on Saturday, May 18.  The first session is from 8:30am to 12:30pm and the second session runs from 1:00pm to 5:00pm.

The graduation ceremony will be held at UCF at the Addition Financial Arena (previously known as the CFE Arena) and begins promptly at 9am.  Graduates will park in garage F for free, but must have a cap and gown with them in their vehicle and a parking pass on their dashboard.  Parking passes will be distributed during graduation practice on the 16th.  Graduation spectators will park in garages D and H and there is a $5 fee.

The UCF Police Department strongly encourages traffic headed to the Addition Arena for graduation to enter the UCF campus from the main entrance off of State Road 434, which is Alafaya Trail and University Boulevard. 

Graduates need to arrive at the Arena by 7:15 am.  Please remember that graduates cannot have anything with them during the ceremony and they will be returned to their vehicle if they have prohibited items in their possession.  Doors will open for all spectators at 8:00am.

There is a firework display at the end of the ceremony.  Graduates will exit the Arena to the right of the stage and guests will exit the way they entered.

Please contact Mrs. Swander in building 1 if you have any further questions.  Congratulationsand we will see you at graduation!!!!

In the spring of 2013 the Florida Legislature created new diploma options for the students of Florida. In doing so, they have offered students more choice as well as an opportunity to align their education to their future college and career plans. In Seminole County, we refer to these new choices as Diploma Pathways. We call them Pathways because we believe that students should use their time in high school to embark on their own personal Pathway to success. Students may now choose a Pathway that will result in a standard high school diploma, a high school diploma connected with industry certification, a diploma designed to rigorously prepare them for the university setting, a diploma option in world languages, or an Advanced Placement diploma option.
