Graduation Info Announcement, 2/2/22

Dear Senior Parent/Guardian:

We are eagerly anticipating the Lake Mary High School commencement ceremony on Wednesday, May 25, at 9:00 am at the Addition Financial Arena at UCF. For most of our students, this is the single most important event in their young lives. We hope your plans are being finalized, so that you can be a part of this wonderful celebration.

Lake Mary High School is very proud of every one of our graduates, and on this day, we will recognize each senior for his/her preparation in achieving this very special honor. As graduation draws closer, please take the time to discuss with your senior the ceremony's meaning, its integrity, and its importance. Through a combined effort, we hope to stage the finest ceremony in our history. Your cooperation will be truly appreciated.

Mandatory graduation meetings will take place on Friday, April 22 at 8:30 am. It is imperative that all graduates attend this meeting. Graduates will pick up their caps and gowns along with necessary information for graduation on Friday, May 20. Times are by alpha on the back page. Please remember, all senior financial obligations must be cleared before graduation gowns will be distributed.

At this time, the number of tickets is pending for the ceremony. More information will be sent to Seniors in April. On the day of graduation, the doors at the Addition Financial Arena will open at 8:00 am. Reserved seating is not available, so please arrive early. Handicap seating is available in sections 101-107 and may be accessed by the elevator in the main lobby of the Arena.

As this is a formal ceremony, graduates are expected to be properly attired. We will discuss appropriate dress at our Friday, April 22 graduation meeting. Furthermore, professional photographers from Grad Images will be at the ceremony to capture your senior receiving his/her diploma. Shortly after graduation, color proofs will be available online along with purchase information at Addition Financial Arena policy prohibits guests from entering the Arena floor during ceremonies. You will be able to take photos or videos from your seat only.

High School Graduation is a most exciting time for the family. We are excited to provide a memorable moment for all, and we eagerly look forward to the Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2022.

Senior Privileges

Seniors, If you are interested in participating in Senior Privileges you must fill out the Senior Privileges form. We will be doing this a little differently this year than in  years past. Since this is a senior privilege, it will be varying times throughout the  day. We will conduct either a Senior Breakfast, Senior Lunch, or Senior Dinner,  which means you will miss the assigned period listed on the senior privilege form.  The senior lunch form can be found in following areas: 

  1. Lake Mary High School Website > Student > Senior Class Information 
  2. Discipline Office 
  3. The senior bulletin board located outside the bookkeeping office 
  4. Administration Office 

All senior privileges forms must be signed by a parent and notarized. Forms must  be turned into discipline by October 22, 2021, to participate in the first senior  privilege.
