Class of 2024 Graduation Events and Information


When is Graduation?

Thursday, June 13 @ 1:30 P.M.

Graduation will be held at the University of Washington, Alaska Airlines Arena, Hec Edmundson Pavilion, 3870 Montlake Blvd. NE, Seattle, WA 98105


What is the Pre-Commencement Celebration?

Saturday, June 8 @ 10:00 A.M.

The Pre-Commencement Celebration, formerly known as Convocation, brings the graduating class together to reflect on their hard work, personal growth, and achievements. It is a memorable experience for students and their families to share something meaningful while showcasing their talents and strengths, regardless of academic standing. This non-religious program includes student and staff speakers, musical performances, and the beloved senior slideshow. Please email for more information. 


What is the Senior Slideshow?

It is a long-standing tradition at Eastlake to have a senior slideshow at the Pre-Commencement Celebration. Each senior is featured on a slide showing a baby photo alongside a current photo. We love to see just how far they’ve come!   


What is a Grad Walk?

Wednesday, June 12

Grad walks are held at participating elementary or middle schools. Seniors are invited to visit their old school and go back to where it all began. Former teachers welcome them back and young students cheer them on as they parade through the school in their caps and gowns. It is a fun tradition that kicks off the start of graduation festivities.

The following EHS feeder schools will host Grad Walks on June 12.

Smith Elementary 1:45 P.M.

Carson Elementary 1:50 P.M.

Mead Elementary 1:50 P.M.

Dickinson Elementary & The Explorer School 1:50 P.M.

McAuliffe Elementary 1:50 P.M.

Alcott Elementary 2:00 P.M.

Blackwell Elementary 2:00 P.M.

Seniors should arrive at the elementary school ten minutes before the parade time wearing their cap and gown. Each school can provide additional information on parking and details. 


Class of 2024 Yard Signs

Class of 2024 yard signs are available! Signs are $21 each and can be purchased from Mail Post in Sammamish (Safeway shopping center, next to EHS).


When is the Senior Breakfast?

Wednesday, June 12

Senior Breakfast is sponsored by the EHS PTSA. It takes place during school hours before graduation rehearsal and awards ceremony. It is a seniors-only event. 


What is Grad Night?

Grad Night is Eastlake's traditional senior send-off event and takes place on the night of graduation. This all-night celebration for the senior class is sponsored and organized by the Eastlake High School PTSA. Graduates board charter buses and visit two private event venues in the Seattle area for a night of fun entertainment and activities. It is the perfect way to provide a safe and secure environment for one last get-together with classmates. It is a great night out for the senior class!
