Mountain View High School
June 6: Virtual Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2020, 10am (details below)
School closure has challenged all of us to adapt to a “new reality,” one in which we have very little control of. Our hearts go out to our senior class for having to end their high school experience this way. As a staff we will continue to do whatever we can to support this special group of Cougars. Our students have responded to this situation with optimism, flexibility and determination…characteristics that will be needed to see this current situation through and will also be invaluable as adults. We are proud of you, Class of 2020!
Seniors, we would like your help completing our plans for the virtual graduation ceremony and compiling details about what your future plans are post high school. Please take a moment to fill out the following senior surveys:
*all gradation cap/gowns will be RED this year*
Students may have earned cords through various accomplishments throughout high school. These cords should be worn with their robes. Here is a handy guide to what each of those cords mean:
Purple/Silver Twist– National AP Scholar
OR Biliteracy Seal
Purple – All Other AP Honors
White – Honors Diploma Earned
Gold – 3.5 GPA or above
Black – Career Endorsement Earned
Red – Blood Drive Honoree
Green – Participated in Jr. year SBAC Testing
Blue/Gold Twist – Honor Society Member
Students who did not attend the Diploma Walk event may drive through the front bus loop on (date TBD) to collect their diploma. Any unclaimed diplomas after that date will be mailed home to the address we have on file.
The Commencement of the MVHS Class of 2020 will be streamed live locally, June 6 at 10am on COTV channel 11 (611 HD). Families may also view the ceremony live on the COTV website, www.COTV11.com and via the Bend-La Pine Schools’ Facebook page – www.facebook.com/BendLaPineSchools.
Links to view the ceremony will also be available on the Bend-La Pine
Schools’ website, after the conclusion of the ceremonies.
We encourage all members of the Class of 2020 to walk at our June, 2021 graduation ceremonies, if they would like.
Check out the community billboards celebrating graduating seniors at each of our five high schools visible around Bend through May and June. Seniors, when you see these signs – know that we are proud of you and are thinking of you. The MVHS billboard is located on NE 1st street and Greenwood (right before you go under the train tracks).
The graduation party is an all night, drug and alcohol free event for graduating senior students that is organized, funded and staffed by senior parents. This party is not school or district sponsored, however, MVHS will provide limited assistance with parent communication and on campus sales of graduation party tickets. Please direct any questions to the planning committee.
We provide transcripts to colleges, universities, trade schools and employers through Parchment for current and former students. Current and former students can create an account in Parchment here.
