Final Graduation Meeting
Tuesday, May 10th, 2pm
Raven Homeschool, 4762 Old Airport Road, Fairbanks, AK, United States
If you know you can make it, please RSVP so we have an idea of who to expect. If you cannot make it, please be sure to contact either Ryan or Amanda (contact information at the top of the page) no later than May 13th so we can make sure we have everything we need for the ceremony.
RSVPs are enabled for this event.
Graduation is only a couple of weeks away!
Caps and gowns are in for families to pick up before the ceremony. We will be handing them out during the final graduation meeting, but they can also be picked up anytime during office hours. Please get them as soon as you can, so they can be hung to de-wrinkle.
We are also still needing photos, quotes, and biographies for many students. If you haven't turned these in yet, please email them to your teacher or counselor ASAP.
Notes to Parents
Presentation of Diplomas: The most memorable part of the ceremony will be the presentation of the diplomas. During the commencement exercises, after your graduate’s name is announced, YOU, as home school teacher, will be handed the diploma to present to them. (OPTIONAL - You may take up to five minutes to brag, challenge, thank, reminisce and/or congratulate your son or daughter.)
Finger Food Requested: There will be a reception immediately following the graduation ceremony. Raven HomeSchool will provide cake, punch, coffee, veggie trays, fruit, and cheese/meat & crackers. We are asking each graduate’s family to bring finger food or a goody of some kind. This will turn cake and punch into a party!
Graduation Rehearsal: May 25 | 1:30-3:15. This is a dress rehearsal. Please encourage your graduate to be on time; there is much to cover.
Calling all Decorators: Parents, we could use your help decorating! Really, really! We will have a decorating work party at 2-3:15 on Graduation Day. We would appreciate any time you could give. Graduation decorating proceeds rapidly when we have many hands. Raven will provide decorations, balloons, flowers, etc.
Graduate Table - Showcase Student’s Home School Years: After practice would be good time to set up your display table in the reception hall. You can place pictures, awards, adventures, etc. to show highlights of your school year’s experience.
