  • Senior Graduation

    Posted by KAREN TOUT on 4/6/2021

    Dear Parents, Guardians and Class of 2021, 

     We are happy to share that we are going to host a graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021!

    Based on the most recent information from the Washington State Department of Health, it has been confirmed that using the Tacoma Dome for graduation is not a possibility. Knowing this might be the case, we have been working on an alternative location for graduation

    This year, graduation will be an outdoor event held at the Washington State Fairgrounds Event Center in Puyallup. All Bethel Schools will graduate on June 18.

    GKHS will graduate on Friday, June 18,2021, at 12:00pm 

     ll graduates will be issued 4 tickets for graduation. Ticket holders for the graduate will sit in the same randomly assigned pod/group with no more than two households represented in the pod/group. Social distancing guidelines will be in effect during this event.

    More information about graduation will follow during the upcoming months. Right now, I wanted to share the updated graduation date of June 18th with you so that you can get it on your calendar. 

    We look forward to seeing the GKHS Class of 2021 graduate! This class has worked very hard through some difficult times and deserves a graduation ceremony to recognize them for earning their high school diploma.
