CLASS OF 2021
Graduation / Commencement
Saturday, June 12 in the Grand Ledge High School Stadium. The times / format / weather contingence plans will be shared soon, but we wanted families to have the opportunity to plan around this date and location. Our other senior award and recognition events typically happen in the month of May.
