2020 Graduation Ceremonies

A decision has been made. We will celebrate graduation with a virtual ceremony this spring and an in-person ceremony when quarantine is lifted. You can read the announcement on the 4J website. Those of you who have already chosen to move forward with your schooling or career are welcome and invited to participate in our virtual celebrations as well as the traditional ceremony when it becomes available. Please continue to watch your email inbox and check our Graduation page for updates and invites.

Graduation Checklist

The Graduation Checklist is ready. We’ll be updating the checklist regularly. Updates will be emailed to you and posted on the Graduation page.

It is important that you check your status to make sure you are eligible to participate in the graduation ceremony. Students who are cleared will have a checkmark in the ADMIN CLEAR TO WALK column. This year, walking means you will be acknowledged in the virtual ceremony and will be eligible to walk in the traditional ceremony when it becomes available.

2020 Graduation Checklist 0515

  • To protect student privacy, the checklist is published with student numbers rather than names. You can find your student number on your most recent report card. In ParentVUE or StudentVUE, the student number appears under the student’s portrait in the top left corner.
  • A checkmark means that your requirements for that column are complete. Incomplete requirements will indicate who can help you finalize the requirement. Visit our Graduation page and scroll down to the Whom to Contact section to find the email address for the staff member you need to work with to clear your requirements.
