Your senior year is a busy time filled with many activities and festivities. With that comes a few deadlines that are key to ensuring you are part of important senior milestones. Please refer to the information on this page and follow the deadlines provided to help you have a successful and memorable year.

The Class of 2021 Commencement ceremony is tentatively scheduled to be held at the Santander Arena in Reading on Friday, May 28, 2021 beginning at 6:00 p.m.

As a parent/guardian of a senior student in the Governor Mifflin School District, there are a few particulars that are required of you and your son/daughter as we prepare for this very special event. Please thoroughly review the following procedures: 

Please review and complete the GMHS 2021 Diploma Form by Friday, October 23, 2020. This Google form must be completed and submitted whether or not your son or daughter decides to participate in the Commencement ceremony. If the form is not completed and submitted, the name we have on file for your child will be used. If your son or daughter is an “off-campus” student (GM Gold, GM Enhanced Online Learning or off-campus placement), please indicate his or her interest in participating in the ceremony on the GMHS 2021 Diploma Form.

Caps & Gowns
Graduating seniors are required to wear a cap and gown if they are planning to walk at Commencement 2021. A student may borrow a cap and gown of a student who graduated from GMHS in 2019 or 2020 only. If this is your intention, please notify GMHS Co-graduation Coordinator, Miss Rowlands, at by Friday, October 23, 2020. Please note, even though the student may be borrowing a cap and gown, he/she will be required to place an order for a “2021” tassel only.

Please take a few minutes to review Student Services Company’s Graduation Products Presentation.

All GMHS graduation products, including cap and gown and/or 2021 tassel orders, must be placed online at (enter Governor Mifflin High School) or by calling Student Services Company at 610-539-1330. All orders, including cap and gown and/or 2021 tassel, must be ordered by Friday, October 23, 2020. A late fee of $5.00 will be incurred if your order is received after this date.

Graduation Stationary
In order to meet our printing deadline for personalized graduation stationery, the date of Commencement will be written as “May 2021.” The GMSD School Board will approve the final date of Commencement in the spring of 2021. Stationery orders as well as orders for all other graduation products are due by Friday, October 23, 2020.
