Ceremony Do's and Don't

Horizon School's graduation is a dignified ceremony with celebration to take place following commencement. Horizon School would also like all graduation attendees be able to enjoy the ceremony; therefore we ask families and friends to refrain from cheering, whistling, or creating noise when the seniors are presented so that all families may have their child recognized. Please do not bring the following items: air horns, beach balls, balloons, flower arrangements, posters, sign or other distraction. Video cameras and equipment MUST be lap-held. No standing, moving around in the aisles or blocking views of audience while taking photos. Professional photographers will take a picture of graduates as they receive their diplomas. Pictures may be purchased if desired from Lifetouch/Desert Photo Lab. Anyone not in compliance with the rules may be removed from the gym.
