High school graduation invitations and announcement cards are the perfect way to let your friends and family members know about your teen’s important milestone. This is a once in a lifetime event so be sure to convey the right sentiment on the announcement cards. Here are a few wording tips for high school graduation invitations:
Class year – For traditional graduation party invitations you can write “Class of” and then the year in bold block letters. High schoolers tend to have lots of school spirit, so they are often proud of the year they graduated from the learning institution.
Parental theme – If you want to present your graduate to your friends and family members, you can word the invitation like, “Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith request the pleasure of your company for Johnny Smith’s graduation.”
Chances are you and some of your family members will keep the announcement card or invitation for years as a cherished memento. An inspirational quote will help motivate your family and serve as a great memory as to how you were feeling at the time. For example, a quote that reads, “Graduation is not the end of your professional development, but the beginning of your educational journey,” conveys the right sentiment.
If your graduate excelled in school you can feature a quote that will serve as motivation while he or she pursues higher education. The late South African President Nelson Mandela once said, “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Some people may want a funny message to write on the graduation card. You can include a inside joke that is shared with the graduate and other members of the family.
