Pre-event fellowship in Morristown, TN
at the AliYah Academy Homeschool Resource Center.
The Pre-event is an opportunity to audition for student speaker at the graduation. We strongly encourage all graduates to come for fellowship and refreshments. This is a chance for the students to meet their fellow graduates and get any important last-minute information.
You are responsible for:
3 student pictures for a slideshow that will be played during the ceremony and given to the students as a memento. Upload these on your account.
A short 3-4 sentence bio of the student highlighting achievements, hobbies, interests, passions, future goals, or whatever stands out about your student. Usually written by the parent. These will be read as your child crosses the stage. Upload these to your account.
Business/dress attire should be worn under the gown with black dress shoes.
Create a student board if desired to highlight any achievements, hobbies, or interests to be displayed in the entrance lobby at graduation.
If you are interested in being the student speaker at the ceremony, start preparing your speech and be ready to audition at the pre-event fellowship in May.
