Graduation: Mountain Youth School's Graduation will be held on Thursday, May 23 at 6:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Murphy. Graduates must be present by 5:30 PM.

Rehearsal: All seniors and graduates are required to attend a mandatory walk-through and luncheon on Thursday, May 23. We will meet at the First United Methodist Church no later than 10:00 AM to practice the graduation ceremony, make seating arrangements, etc. We will then return to school for a cookout, softball, talent show, and/or field day. Those not at rehearsal may not be permitted to walk.

Senior Dinner: Seniors and their families and friends are invited to attend a celebration dinner, tentatively scheduled on Wednesday, May 22 at 6:00 PM at Brother’s Restaurant. The seniors’ meals will be provided by the school (up to a predetermined budgeted amount), but friends and family will need to pay for their own meals. We will be recognizing seniors’ accomplishments, naming senior superlatives, and making note of graduates entering college, the workforce, and the military. December graduates, please call the school or check the website a week prior to make sure no changes have been made.

Portraits: Spring senior drape portraits will be taken at the school on Tuesday, May 7. December graduates and current seniors who have not had their portrait made should be present and ready to go at 9:00 AM. Those who had their portrait taken here in the fall do not need to have them retaken. If you had portraits taken at another high school, tell Ms. Parker and Ms. Herr. If you had portraits taken elsewhere, you need to make arrangements to provide your portrait by May 7. If you did not have your drape portrait made here in the fall, please assume that we do not have your portrait.

Senior Slideshow: Each senior needs to provide a relevant, well-thought quote that describes your ambitions, dreams, goals, or something that is meaningful to you. Quotes should not be silly, but can reflect something appropriate that you are known for saying if applicable. The quote will accompany your senior portrait in the graduation slideshow. This is something that your family, friends, and school officials will see, so it needs to be something you will be proud to be remembered for. You can bring or e-mail your quote to Ms. Herr or Ms. D. by Thursday, May 9.

Graduation Speakers: While our keynote speaker will be Murphy Mayor Bill Hughes, we would like to enlist as many seniors as possible in the graduation ceremony. Seniors will lead the Pledge of Allegiance, give the invocation (prayer), and speak on behalf of the class. Speakers should be students who can speak clearly in front of a crowd, and who represent the best of the class.

Superlatives: Each current senior was identified and seniors present at the graduation planning meeting determined superlative titles for each senior/graduate. Superlatives will be announced the week of graduation and at the senior dinner.

Please call the school at (828) 837-6775 with any questions about graduation.
