Everyone is looking forward to Bellflower's Class of 2016 Commencement Ceremony to be held on Thursday, June 16th at 6:30pm in Ron Yary Stadium, and to see our graduates walk across the stage to receive their high school diploma. Ron Yary Stadium is located on the corner of McNab Avenue and Ron Yary Way, just north of Alondra Boulevard in Bellflower.
Graduating seniors are required to check in at the Bellflower High School gym NO later than 5:00pm. Seniors, please park in the student lot off McNab Avenue. The standard of dress required with the cap and gown is a dress, skirt, or dress slacks for girls. Girls are also encouraged to wear appropriately chosen shoes since they will be walking on grass. No flip flops, please. For boys, long pants (no jeans), a shirt with a collar (no t-shirts) are required.
Parking for graduation, including handicapped parking, is located behind the stadium on Ron Yary Way. Additional parking will be made available in the student and faculty lots on McNab Avenue on the Bellflower High School campus. Parking is limited, so we suggest that you carpool if possible.
All family and friends are welcome to attend the ceremony. We ask that our guests not bring items that may cause distractions such as horns, whistles, confetti and bells out of respect for the ceremony and our graduates. In addition, balloons, signs or other distracting items that may obstruct the view of the audience will not be permitted in the stadium. To ensure the safety of students, staff, and guests, anyone attending the graduation ceremony will be subject to search, including all bags/purses and personal items prior to entry.
Parents and guests of the graduates may enter the stadium beginning at 5:00pm. All guests will enter and exit the stadium through the gates behind the stadium or the main entrance located on McNab Aveunue. Family members and guests can meet the graduates outside the gym after picking up their diplomas.
