ANHS will be holding two (2) graduation ceremonies on June 3rd. One ceremony will start at 1:30 pm and the second will start at 4:30 pm. Seniors will get to choose which ceremony they would like to attend. Each senior will be given FOUR complimentary graduation tickets for their immediate household members.

Our graduation ceremony will be traditional in its agenda and include all the normal pomp and circumstance associated with this important event. 

Choosing your ceremony

At this time, all graduates have either chosen their ceremony or have been placed into a ceremony. All communications sent from the school will be specific to the ceremony you will be attending.

Regalia

State Legislature passed AB 1248 (Gloria) in 2018, adding Education Code section 35183.1. The code allows students to wear “traditional tribal regalia or recognized objects of cultural or religious significance” as adornment at school graduation ceremonies (emphasis added). A local education agency retains the discretion to limit an item that is likely to cause a substantial disruption of, or material interference with, the ceremony. The law requires that every graduating California student, regardless of their identity, are allowed to represent their family, culture, and/or faith affiliation in graduation ceremonies through regalia or adornments without substantial disruption or material interference with those ceremonies. Education Code section 35183.1(b) defines the term adornment as meaning: something attached to, or worn with, but not replacing, the cap and gown customarily worn at school graduation ceremonies. The term cultural is defined: recognized practices and traditions of a certain group of people.

 

If a student wishes to wear regalia that meets the above descriptions to graduation, they must present them at check in for rehearsal.
