Re: Graduation

Seniors and Parents,

Our desire to celebrate our seniors' achievements is universal, and we want nothing more than to make this happen for them. As we stated in the earlier quarantine stages, we are committed to providing a virtual graduation and planning a traditional graduation contingent Federal, State, and Local restrictions and orders.

Virtual Commencement

Join us as we honor the Class of 2020 with a virtual celebration at home together.

The event will premiere LIVE on the district's Website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 21, and will be available for viewing after this date on both channels.

The program will be preceded with Senior Shout-Outs at 7 p.m. and the Virtual Graduation will start promptly at 7:30 p.m. The program will feature speeches by Claremore Public School District Board of Education President Patrick Gotcher, Claremore High School Principal Kerri Garroutte, Senior Class President Barb Bacon, and our top Valedictorians Barb Bacon, Austin Haddock, Ella Northcutt, Blaine Phillippi, and Blake Phillippi. CHS Choir will also perform virtually. We have done our best to incorporate all of the pomp and circumstance you would expect from a traditional graduation ceremony.

We encourage ALL seniors to put on their cap and gown, take a selfie with your family during the program, and use our hashtag #CPSZEBRAPRIDE.

Traditional Commencement

A modified traditional ceremony is currently being planned for June 26, 2020, at Lantow Field and is contingent on the restrictions and orders set forth by the Federal, State, and Local authorities. Our students' and families' safety is our priority, and we believe we can safely conduct a ceremony for our seniors with a limited number of family members while maintaining social distancing protocols.

The district will continue to follow protocols provided by Federal, State and Local authorities' restrictions and orders. Since these protocols are ever-changing, some details will remain unknown until the date approaches, including but not limited to, the following:

  • the number of family members able to safely attend
  • whether a ticketing system will be utilized in the event, current guidelines suggest families may safely attend
  • the guidelines for appropriate social distancing among spectators and students
  • weather forecasts

Please know we are doing everything in our power to celebrate the Class of 2020's senior year in a way that honors your hard work. If for some unforeseen reason we can hold graduation on the June 26th date we will attempt to reschedule the event for July 17, 2020.

We genuinely believe there is no better place than our own turf to celebrate such an incredible group of students. So thank you, seniors and families. I've appreciated your patience, flexibility, and support as we've continued to navigate these uncharted waters together.

  • Fill out this form if you have anything in the band room that you need back:


Be sure to tell me exactly where your stuff is. “In the cubby room” is not a sufficient answer. It is a big room with lots of cubbies. Deadline is Monday, May 4th, Star Wars Day, Midnight

  • If it is left in the band room after this week, you may pick it up at Goodwill.
  • You will also bring back all sheet music, scale books, and chorale books these two days. Put these in a folder with your name on it to return.
  • You will also return any school-owned instruments and accessories such as ligatures and mouthpieces that you will not be playing next year. (Seniors) Put your name on the case with a piece of painters tape.
  • If you have any band uniforms or Colorguard parade uniforms, I need those back as well. Put your name on a piece of tape and attach it to the outside of the garment bag.
  • You will pull into the parking lot on the west side of the PAC, your car facing north. You will pull up to the door next to the drama room. You will stay in your car and a Band Staff Member will help you. You may not enter the PAC.
