Location: West Freehold School multipurpose room.


Each graduate will be allocated 3 tickets for the ceremony. We appreciate your anticipated support and understanding as we plan to celebrate the achievements of our graduates!


  • Each graduate will receive 3 tickets for graduation. Due to seating capacity at WFS, we are only able to allocate 3 tickets per graduate.
  • Graduation tickets and diplomas will be distributed at graduation practice on Friday, June 17. All fines must be paid, assigned student Chromebooks and chargers must be received, and all unexcused absences must be followed up with a parent note before the student receives graduation tickets and diploma. For your convenience, if your child has any unexcused absences, you can find a pre-filled attendance note to excuse them in the parent portal under the "letters" tab. Or, you may use the DISTRICT ATTENDANCE NOTE.

  • All guests must have a ticket for the ceremony. No tickets will be distributed at the event. No lap children will be permitted.

  • All graduates should wear their graduation gown to the ceremony. As a reminder, 8th grade graduates do not wear a cap. Under the gown, appropriate suggested attire would include a white button down shirt and a tie, as well as dress pants and dress shoes or a simple dress or skirt and blouse, as well as shoes with a low to medium heel so walking in the procession will not be difficult. Students will NOT be permitted to carry pocketbooks, cell phones, etc. into the graduation ceremony. Please have them leave these items at home or with you during the ceremony.
