OJHS 2020 Video Ceremony

May 11, 12, 13, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Oakwood Junior High School is altering its traditional graduation format this year. We will be having a virtual ceremony with our graduates walking across the stage. Graduates will come into the school for photo opportunities, with up to four (4) family members to be present to watch the graduate walk across the stage.

The graduation ceremony will be a video ceremony that will be revealed at a date yet to be determined and be posted to YouTube or some other social media. Anyone will be able to view the ceremony through those platforms.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me by email, burtona@oakwood76.org.

Thank you for the continued support.

Stay healthy,

Anne Burton, Principal
