Keep Mellen Graduation Memorial Day Weekend for class of 2019!

This petition made change with 239 supporters!

The Mellen class of 2019 is petitioning to move their graduation date from June 9th, 2019, to May 25th, 2019. We are petitioning to move this date because it is a tradition in the Mellen School to graduate Memorial Day weekend. We have been given no reason for this change and all of the years previous to 2019, the graduating class has graduated on Memorial Day weekend. Many families come home to see relatives graduate, and it makes traveling and organization for many families much easier. In addition, some families have already started planning many years in advance as this day is very special. This also interferes with the band, as students cannot be required to be a part of a performance once the school year has finished. This may also affect yearbook sales as they typically include graduation in the yearbook. It is what makes the Mellen Yearbook unique and helps boost sales.

In conclusion, graduating Memorial Day weekend is a tradition in the Mellen High School which we as the students and community would like to keep alive. It is a unique part of our history and by setting the graduation date to Memorial Day weekend things are made easier for the families and friends of the graduates. We ask that if you are a student and would not like for this to happen to you when you graduate, alumni from the Mellen School District, or are a community member who sees and understands our reasoning for petitioning this graduation date, that you would please sign our petition!
