Senior Prom Tickets
LCHS Prom will take place Saturday, May 20th @7pm at the W Hotel in West Hollywood!
Please review the Prom Info Sheet and Prom Contract for details.
Graduation Ceremony - The graduation ceremony will take place on Friday, June 2, 2023 at 6 pm. Families should plan to arrive at Spartan Stadium between 5 pm to 5:30 pm, leaving time for parking challenges and the potentially extended walking time from parking in the area around LCHS. The ceremony will be approximately 1 hour in duration and will feature senior student graduation speakers, performances by our music program, and the presentation of the class. Students will go to the cafeteria following the ceremony to pick up their actual diploma, as what is given to them during the actual ceremony is the diploma cover. This means that post graduation dinner plans could potentially begin by about 8 pm or after.
Note - The senior students are expected to arrive in their cap and gown at the North
Gym by 4:45 pm on Friday, June 2, 2023..
Graduation Tickets - Each senior in the class of 2023 will be issued 4 tickets to graduation free of charge. These will be distributed to students in their English class on Monday, May 22, 2023. Each student will be able to purchase two additional tickets for graduation starting on May 22, 2023. Tickets will be on sale in the Administration Office at the desk of Mrs. Sarkissian. Tickets are $20.00 per ticket, payable in cash or check, with checks payable to LCHS. Students or parents may purchase these tickets.
Graduation Tickets Beyond the 6 Each Student Has Access To – With each graduating senior having access to 6 tickets, this will take us close to capacity in Spartan Stadium. LCHS staff understands that some family situations could be assisted by having access to additional tickets. Learning what this potential demand is will help LCHS Administration in determining whether the demand can be met. There is NO GUARANTEE that this request can be granted, but LCHS Administration will make as many seats available as we are able. Please complete this ticket interest form - click here. Clearly, if each graduate hopes to have access to a large number of tickets beyond 6, this demand cannot be met. Additional tickets will be available for purchase, if they are made available, at $20.00 per ticket, purchased as indicated above.
Important Senior Events
Awards Ceremony - The Class of 2023 Awards Ceremony will be on Thursday, May 25, 2023 in the North Gym at 6:30 pm. The ceremony is open to the public.
Baccalaureate - We are delighted to announce that Interfaith Baccalaureate will return to St. Bede’s Catholic Church on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at 6:30 pm. All graduates are welcome and come dressed in their cap and gown.
Graduation Practice - Thursday, June 1, 2023 at 8:30 am. All graduating seniors are REQUIRED to attend graduation practice. The practice is anticipated to last approximately 75 minutes. Students should plan to attend the Graduation Brunch that follows at the private home of one of the graduates. Details will be shared at a later date.
Senior Final Exams and Last Week of School - The last week of class attendance for seniors in the class of 2023 is the week of May 22, 2023. The bell schedule this week will see all periods meet on Monday and Tuesday for regular schedule, block day schedule on Wednesday (periods 1, 3, 5) and Thursday (periods 2, 4, 6), and assembly schedule on Friday, May 26, 2023.
Caps and Gowns will be picked up on Friday, May 26, 2023 following the Senior Salute Assembly at approximately 11:15 am. Senior students who have not purchased a cap and gown will need to visit our Jostens representative, Mr. Kirk Mayer, on Wednesday, May 17, 2023 from 2-4:30 pm. Mr. Mayer will be located in the quad and will have caps and gowns for sale.
