Dear graduates and families of graduates:
We look forward to our students’ upcoming commencement ceremony and want to congratulate them on their achievement. The commencement ceremony for Hunter High’s Class of 2018 will take place at the Maverik Center at 3:00 p.m. on May 25, 2018 (graduates arrive by 2:30 p.m.). To make it an enjoyable and pleasant experience for all those who attend, we would like to outline some expectations and go over a few items of business.
- Graduates are expected to show respect and decorum for each other, their guests, the speakers, the performers, and the audience. Any graduate who does not show the proper respect will be escorted from the ceremony and will not be able to pick up their diploma until they have met with a member of the administration at the school a week after the ceremony. Students should remember that this is a ceremony and that the goal is to honor all the graduates for their accomplishments. Improper behavior interferes with that goal and will not be accepted. Graduates are also asked to be on time and in place as per instructions given in their orientation meeting held the day prior to the ceremony. Graduates are required to follow instructions and requests of all faculty and staff.
- Due to security concerns, all bags will be checked before entering (arrive early). The audience is also reminded that this is a ceremony to honor and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates and that respect for others is paramount. Our students have worked hard and deserve to be honored in a classy and respectful manor. For this reason, we ask that members of the audience do not bring artificial noise makers or make excessive noise as their graduate’s name is read. The names of our graduates are read quickly due to the size of our graduating class. Therefore, excessive noise for one graduate drowns out the name of the next graduate. We would like every family to be able to hear their graduate’s name read. Balloons, banners, noise makers, confetti, or weapons are not allowed in the facility so please leave them in the car or at home. The Maverik Center charges for excessive cleanup costs which Granite School District does not pay. Should you or members of your family be identified throwing or using confetti and other similar items you will be escorted from the facility and a bill will be sent to you for additional cleanup costs. Please be responsible for your actions and set a proper example for those around you. Please help us achieve our goal of bringing that “Hunter Pride” to our school and to our community.
While this is a time for celebration, all of our graduates deserve the respect and honor of our community for their accomplishments in obtaining a high school diploma. Let us send them off with the dignity and pride they deserve.
