PowerPoint Presentation:

If you have a high school senior, no doubt you’ve started to think about their graduation ceremony. It’s a big milestone for both your student and you, so make sure to plan ahead! Senior year tends to go by really quickly, because you’re busy applying for colleges and scholarships, and before you know it, May is here and they’re done! If you plan ahead, you won’t have to worry about it and will be able to enjoy a great celebration when it’s all over. Copyright © The HomeScholar

Many homeschoolers nowadays join with a larger group for a graduation celebration, whether a co-op they’ve participated in or perhaps a state homeschool graduation. Those kinds of events have deadlines, so pay attention and make sure you get your applications in on time! Some of those kinds of events actually fill up, so don’t risk the disappointment of not getting to participate, and stay on top of dates. Copyright © The HomeScholar

Even if you participate with a larger group, you may still want to have your own private home graduation party. These events usually involve food, decorations, and maybe even a short program, so planning is key here too. Check out your local party store for decorations, because they usually have a ton of stuff related to graduation. Some of the decorations will indicate a year, but others won’t, and will simply say ‘Congratulations.’ If you go to the party store after the graduation season, you can buy discounted things in your graduation color and then use them the following year when your child graduates.

Graduation party food can be as basic as hamburgers or as elaborate as you want; you could even have the event catered! After all, this is a big celebration! When our boys graduated, we had a reception with some food at our home, but other people might rent a reception hall or a church, or even have their reception and graduation someplace other than at home. The local park could be a great option too! Copyright © The HomeScholar

The ceremony itself can include whatever you want it to. It should include whatever you think is most significant, which will be different for different people. In order to make it a little more fun, you could play the traditional graduation song, “Pomp and Circumstance,” which can be found easily online or in a music store. Alternatively you could have little siblings who are proficient with instruments play the music! Perhaps you will want to include a blessing, a dedication, praise of the student, an accounting of their accomplishments, or a scripture. There are dozens of different things you can include, based on what is important to you. Copyright © The HomeScholar

Some tasks might best be delegated—I had my husband speak to the group, because I knew I would probably not be able to get through any kind of presentation! Do whatever will make this occasion special and memorable for you and your graduate. There is one thing I recommend that everyone includes in a ceremony, and that is to present your student with a high school diploma of graduation. Your homeschool is official, and your diploma is official, and their graduation is official! You want them to remember in the future that they did get an official high school diploma.

Graduation can be an emotional time. If you write down what you want to say, you’ll be less likely to forget something that’s really important for your child to hear from you. Don’t feel like you have to rush, and don’t worry about what other people might think about what you say! This is a really meaningful time, the end of one period and the beginning of another, so take all the time you want to enjoy it, and communicate your love and pride to your student. Enjoy!
