The administrative staff of LPHS congratulates our students and their families and looks forward to this momentous occasion. Way to go Class of 2016!

Congratulations, Class of 2016

Graduation is a time when an entire cohort of students celebrate a common achievement. The Class of 2016 is made up of a diverse group of students with various career and college plans. The commencement ceremony will be a special time to recognize their achievement of the state's graduation requirements for a diploma. Graduation is different than an awards ceremony and although it would be nice to celebrate individual accomplishments, the main purpose of the ceremony is to honor the graduates. Following tradition the top graduates of the class will be recognized individually. Other achievements are noted through honor cords or denoted in writing in the graduation pamphlet.

Graduation Info

Orders for caps and gowns were taken earlier in the year and will be distributed in May. Students must adhere to the standard graduation regalia. Caps are to remain plain and are not to be decorated. Students may wear cords associated with Tri-Music, National Honor Society, the Military (Red, White, and Blue cord).

The service will be held at Kiwanis Field (weather permitting). If the forecast forces the event inside, the ceremony will take place in Slicer Gym. Please understand that seating is somewhat limited inside and students will be allotted six (6) tickets for guests. If a student does not need all six tickets, we ask that they be given to a classmate or turned in to the counseling office to be redistributed. Sale of commencement tickets is strictly prohibited. Students are responsible for safeguarding their tickets.
