    Graduation & Other Information for the Class of 2024 (updated 11.20.23)


    Graduation Tidbits:

    • Graduation is on May 22nd at 7pm in our stadium (rain moves us to the Salem Civic Center @ 8pm).


    • Accommodations for graduation: sign language interpreter, handicapped seating/parking, etc., please email Wendy Stone to reserve. Handicapped seating (located on the field in the endzone) is limited to the person needed the accommodation and one other family member.


    • Order your cap, gown, and tassel (diploma cover is included) from hjvirginia.com (prices go up in December).


    • If you are borrowing from someone, be sure it is in the last 4 years (we changed vendors/colors), and make sure you send in $15 to cover the cost of the tassel and diploma cover.


    • The cap and gown package will be delivered here at GHS and distributed during lunches on April 16th (this includes announcements).


    • Cap and Gown photos are scheduled for March 14th here at school with Prestige Portraits (caps and gowns will be provided). **No make-up day will be scheduled.


    • Students that earn a 3.5 GPA or higher qualify as honor grads. They will have the option to either trade in their green and gold tassel that comes with the cap and gown package for a gold honor tassel or pay $5 to keep both. That trade/purchase will begin on April 16th.

    Valedictorian candidates (those with a 4.0 or the potential for a 4.0 at the time of graduation) will receive letters in March explaining the process for those that would like to submit graduation speeches for consideration.
