Moorestown High School class of 2016 graduation ceremony is June 22

The Moorestown High School class of 2016 graduation ceremony is just around the corner.

The ceremony will be held on June 22 starting at 6:30 p.m. either at the MHS track or in the MAC gym, if there is rain. The high school is located at 350 Bridgeboro Road.

All admission to the stadium for commencement will require a ticket. Each graduate will receive eight tickets for entrance to the commencement ceremony. Four of the graduation tickets will allow family or friends to be seated in the reserved section located on the track or admission to the MAC gym if there is rain, and four tickets will allow additional family or friends general admission and seating in available bleachers or admission to satellite locations within the school to observe the ceremony if there is rain.

Graduates will be required to report to the MAC gym, or Band Room if there is rain, by 5 p.m.

All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis with the appropriate tickets. The stadium will be open for seating at 5:30 p.m., a pre-ceremonial performance by the concert band will begin at 6:15 p.m., and the “March of Graduates” will enter the stadium at 6:30 p.m.

All families with handicapped or disabled family members should see Principal Andrew Seibel to request any need for additional reserved tickets and for a special parking pass.

General parking is available at the high school and William Allen Middle School. There will be reserved parking for graduates in the William Allen Middle School, Administration Building and the High School Media Center lots from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Additional general admission tickets may be requested following the distribution to graduates. Some graduates may also have extra general admission tickets they may be willing to share.

In the event of inclement weather, where the ceremony must be relocated indoors, the commencement ceremony will be held in the MAC gym. Reporting times for graduates will remain the same.

Immediately following the ceremony, graduates who have tickets for the 28th Anniversary of Project Graduation will head to secret locations where there will be entertainment with fun, food and prizes all night long. Since 1988, Project Graduation has been a tradition in Moorestown that promotes a celebration for Moorestown High School’s most recent graduates. The event continues through the night until approximately 7 a.m. the next morning.
