Principal's Message

Jon Parker

As you are well aware, graduation is rapidly approaching. Graduation will be on Sunday, May 25, at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are not required and the ceremony will be in the gymnasium.

There will be a graduation rehearsal at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 23. Attendance at this rehearsal is mandatory if a graduate is to participate in the ceremony. A luncheon will be served for our graduates in the community room following rehearsal.

No student will participate in the ceremony unless they have met all graduation requirements by the State of Ohio and the Berne Union Board of Education.  Also, there will be a dress code for the ceremony which will be strictly enforced.  Boys must wear a dark color pant (no jeans), a shirt with a collar and a tie plus a non-athletic shoe and dark socks.  Since the girls’ gowns are gold this year, they must wear a light colored dress or a light colored skirt and blouse with non-athletic shoes, hose or no socks.

No decorations on the graduation caps and no other hats.

All fines and obligations must be met prior to rehearsal.

We will make it, with your help, a first class ceremony as we give The Class of 2014 a fitting send off.

The purpose of the graduation is to honor the class and I would ask that guests please refrain from shouting or calling out names of members of the class.  If you have any questions about graduation, please call me at the school at (740) 746-9956.

I look forward to seeing you on May 25, at what will be a special and exciting time for all of us.
