Clawson High School Graduation: What You Need to Know

Here are a few important details graduates may have forgotten to tell their parents or loved ones about Sunday's ceremony.

The graduating seniors will turn their tassels Sunday, and if you're planning to attend to support a loved one, here are a few things you may want to know.

When and where

The graduation ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Clawson High School gymnasium. Graduates should arrive at the school by 1 p.m.

Need tickets?

There are no tickets required for the ceremony, and it's open to the public.


Parking is available in the school lot, with overflow parking on the surrounding neighborhood streets.

Graduate attire

The graduates have been told to dress nicely under their gowns—no jeans, tennis shoes, flip-flops or shorts.

The ceremony

The ceremony will include speeches from Superintendent Cheryl Rogers, Principal Ryan Sines and Assistant Principal Adam Schihl.

What to bring

Tissue, if you know this will be an emotional moment, and a camera, of course.

All-Night Party

There will be an All-Night Party for seniors on Monday from 10 p.m.-5 a.m. at Joe Dumars Fieldhouse Grill, 45300 Mound Rd. in Shelby Township. Seniors should meet at the high school between 10-11 p.m. and they will be bussed to Joe Dumars. No student should go to Joe Dumars on their own. After the party, the bus will bring students back to the school between 5:30-6:15 a.m.
