The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2019 will take place on Wednesday,
June 26, 2019, at 6:30 PM in the high school gym. Seniors must report by 5:30PM to
the high school auditorium.
On Monday, June 24th, all graduating seniors must report to the high school cafeteria at
8:30AM, for a mandatory graduation rehearsal.
After receiving their caps and gowns, our seniors will be bused over to the elementary
school on Haight Street to “walk the halls” in recognition and appreciation of where
their journey began. Elementary teachers and students will be there to greet them and
celebrate their accomplishments. We will begin graduation rehearsal promptly upon
arrival back to the high school. The rehearsal will be followed by a luncheon which
should end by 12:00PM.
Each student will receive eight tickets for graduation at the rehearsal. Additional
unticketed seating will be available in the back and on the bleachers. Seating for guests
with tickets will begin at 5:30PM. At 6:00PM all seating will be open to the general
public on a first come basis. Seating assistance for guests with wheelchairs will be
provided upon request (email@example.com.)
Graduation evening promises to be a special time for the seniors, their families and the
staff of Pawling High School. In order to have a dignified ceremony, there are simple
expectations that must be met. All students must wear shoes. Caps may be decorated
on Friday, June 7, 2019, at the Senior Breakfast ONLY. All decoration will be pre-
approved by Mrs. Stecher, Senior class advisor. Gowns may not be altered or adorned
in any way. Students engaging in any inappropriate behavior may be asked to leave the
ceremony. Please discuss these expectations with your graduate.
I look forward to seeing you at graduation on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.
