The Delaware Hayes High School class of 2019 will graduate at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 25, at Cornell Stadium at the high school, 289 Euclid Ave.

Hayes Principal Ric Stranges said this year's graduating class, 396 strong, is loaded with "exemplary" leaders and positive role models.

"They have been instrumental in helping our school achieve the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence designation, set the tone for a positive school culture and have achieved the highest grade-point average of any class in recent memory," Stranges said.

"They have truly forged a legacy that will live on for many years to come."

Superintendent Paul Craft will be the commencement speaker.

It will be Craft's final commencement at Hayes; he has accepted a job with the Metropolitan Educational Technology Association and will leave the district at the end of July.

The graduation ceremony will move to the high school gym in case of rain.

Seniors' last day of class was May 16.

Senior Day at the elementary schools is set Monday, May 20. The senior picnic and senior awards night are scheduled Thursday, May 23.

The senior breakfast and graduation practice are slated Friday, May 24.
