Graduation Ceremony 2019 -- Date Changed!  We recently learned that Washburn’s originally scheduled graduation date, Wednesday, June 5th, falls on Eid al-Fitr, an important Muslim religious holiday. Eid al-Fitr is a day of celebration, which marks the end of Ramadan (the Islamic holy month of fasting). It is a special day for families and communities to come together for prayer and celebration. In an effort to support our Muslim families, Washburn has worked with the district to move our graduation date from June 5th to Saturday, June 8th at 8:00pm. Our graduation ceremony will take place at the Minneapolis Convention Center Auditorium. June 8th was the best alternate date available at the Convention Center. Edison High School and Wellstone High School have also moved their graduation ceremony dates to June 8th; their ceremonies will take place at 11:00am and 4:00pm. Thank you for your understanding and support of all families at Washburn. We are so excited to celebrate graduation with you on Saturday, June 8th at 8:00pm.
