Graduation Update: In-Person Ceremony June 2
By Ximena Cabrera
Save the date! The Norwalk La Mirada School District announced that the seniors at John Glenn High School will get an in-person graduation ceremony on June 2nd at John Glenn High School Stadium at 7:00 PM. Seniors, you might want to start ordering your cap and gown now!
What other details do we know apart from the date, time, and location? In a recent short interview, assistant principal Ms. Choi was kind enough to discuss some of those details with us. We now know that JGHS is planning on only having one ceremony instead of breaking it into a series of different ceremonies the day of graduation. Given that all of the graduating students will be at the same ceremony, each student will only be allowed to bring four guests with them. As far as we know, the graduation ceremony will be a traditional one, as graduates will have the honor of walking up to the stage and receiving their diploma as their names are called.
Will the class of 2021 have any other senior activities such as senior awards, prom, and grad night? With Covid cases decreasing, students are hopeful for additional senior events. Unfortunately, at this time, the school administration along with the district have not yet completely decided if seniors will have any other events other than graduation. We hope to be updated with a decision soon, but for now don’t forget to purchase your cap and gown at www.socalgrad.com.
