REDMOND, OR -- Graduation season is in full swing, in Central Oregon. While a couple local schools sent seniors across the graduation stage in the last two weeks, the bulk of the commencement ceremonies take place this week.
Redmond's Ridgeview High kicked things off during Wednesday night's ceremony at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds. Also at the fairgrounds, it's Bend's Mountain View High School on Thursday, and Redmond High on Friday. La Pine and Crook County ceremonies are Friday evening, as well.
Then, Saturday morning, it’s Bend Senior High, followed by Summit High, that night. Bend’s Marshall High is Monday and the season wraps up June 14 with Sisters High.
Bend-La Pine Schools report the district will graduate more than 1,220 students from its five high schools. Of those, 334 will receive honors diplomas. For Redmond, 203 students graduated from Ridgeview on Wednesday, with another 204 crossing the stage for RHS on Friday.
