Masters of Ceremony are Ella Van Vlack and Grace Scrafford. Becca Catina will address the class and Zach Ade will deliver a farewell speech. Music will be provided by the Whitefish High School band, choir and orchestra.

Seniors are to report to the Whitefish Middle School cafeteria at 11:30 a.m. for final instructions and to load shuttle buses to the high school. Seniors will load a bus at 12:30 p.m. at the middle school and will arrive at Whitefish High School at 12:45 p.m. Participation in commencement is not mandatory to achieve graduation, but the district is encouraging all students to take part.

In recognition of academic achievement, students who have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above will wear an honor medallion. Students in the National Honor Society will wear a gold cord.

Parking for family and friends will be available on all sides around the high school, as well as at Muldown Elementary School. Six chauffeured golf carts will help shuttle people who park near Muldown, Pine Avenue, Fir Avenue and East Fourth Street.

Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis and the doors will be open at noon on Saturday. The district advises families to ask their senior what side of the gym they will be entering so that family members will be able to select desired seating accordingly.
