MHS Graduation: What You Need to Know

Moorestown High School graduates its Class of 2012 tonight—get the details on parking, time, tickets and more.

Tonight, June 19, Moorestown High School will confer diplomas on hundreds of newly minted graduates. Are you a proud parent or supporter heading to the ceremony? (Or a student who lost your graduation packet?) Get the details on the graduation ceremony here:

Time and Location

The commencement ceremony will take place on the ’s football field, 350 Bridgeboro Rd., Moorestown. Enter through the home or visitor gates for general admission seating and through the concession stand entrance for reserved seating. The stadium opens at 5:30 p.m. for audience members to begin claiming seats. The March of the Graduates begins at 6:15 p.m. and the ceremony starts at 6:30 p.m. Graduation will likely end close to 8 p.m.


Every person attending the graduation needs a ticket. Graduates were given eight tickets each to the ceremony, and all seating is on a first come, first served basis. Four tickets are for reserved seats on the track or admission to the athletic center if the ceremony is moved indoors. Four tickets are for general admission seats in the stadium bleachers or satellite locations inside the school to watch the ceremony remotely in case of rain.


Parking spots are available at the high school and (801 N. Stanwick Rd., Moorestown). There is reserved graduate-only parking at the middle school near the administration building, the administration building and the high school media center lots from 4 to 5 p.m. Handicapped parking is available in the Moorestown Athletic Center lot, although access to the spots required previous written requests.

Rain Policy

Graduation will be held in the Moorestown Athletic Center gym in the event of a rain out. All times will remain the same. Only ticketholders with reserved seating passes will be admitted to the live ceremony. People with general admission tickets will be offered satellite locations in the school, such as the auditorium, to watch a feed of the ceremony.

(The weather forecast calls for a temperature of 82 degrees and only a 10 percent chance of rain during the ceremony, so cross your fingers that you won’t need this rain policy info.)

Odds and Ends

  • Spectators won’t be allowed on the field until the ceremony is fully concluded.
  • A photographer will be on the field to capture individual graduates as they receive their diplomas. (Patch will be there too!)
  • begins after the ceremony and runs until 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Congratulations, Moorestown High School Class of 2012!

I hope no one makes a fuss because the Pledge is recited and please, please don't mention God in any way. You can praise Mao, Castro or Chavez but don't mention God....you wouldn't want to offend anyone.

p.s. Asking that someone pay for your contraception while you're away at college...that's OK too.
