Day of Graduation
The 2021 Heritage High School Graduation Ceremony will take place  Thursday, May 20th, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at the Littleton Public Stadium.  Graduation lasts approximately 1.5 - 2 hours.

We highly encourage guests to bring their own water to keep hydrated since our concession stand will not be open that day.

Appropriate Behavior for a Traditional Ceremony
The high school graduation ceremony is a “once in a lifetime” occasion for students to be recognized for achieving the academic requirements as set forth by the school and community. The ceremony itself is a very visible and expensive event. It is a time set aside for honoring the Class of 2021, both collectively and individually. Students wear the academic robes and mortarboards in recognition of their academic achievement. They are dressed alike because they have a common bond with each other and with all former graduates who have worn the cap and gown at the time of their high school graduation. Students are recognized individually when their names are called and when they shake hands with school administrators. As you know, this ceremony marks the completion of thirteen years of public education and the beginning of future adult paths. We are proud to celebrate this special occasion; however, because of the importance attached to the occasion, we ask that our pride be demonstrated with dignity. 

Spectators can help greatly by not applauding, cheering, whistling, etc. when a student’s name is called. The noise from such outbursts often obscures the next student’s name. We will move quickly through the names of approximately 400 seniors. It is most helpful if the cheering and applause may be given at one time after the last student’s name is read. The Senior Class and the Heritage staff hope to make our ceremony this year the best ever. We do appreciate your help.
