Mount Si High School will graduate more than 350 students at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 13, at Mount Si Stadium, in a first—an event that’s already sold out once.
Graduation tickets, given to students to distribute to their guests for the ceremony, went so fast this year, that school staff agreed to add three more rows of assigned seating on the field. Those tickets, for roughly 150 more people, went on sale to students Monday, for $10 per seat.
All proceeds from the ticket sales will go toward graduation costs.
For those unable to get extra tickets, the ceremony will also be streamed live, to the school auditorium, which has a capacity of 400.
Out on the field, the Class of 2014 will hear from Principal John Belcher, their class Valedictorian, the school band and choir, before receiving their diplomas. The ceremony is scheduled to take less than two hours.
