“Redmond School District is proud to celebrate these 340 graduates this week,” Superintendent Mike McIntosh shares. “On behalf of our board of directors and the entire district team, we wish the class of 2015 all the best as they pursue life beyond our classrooms!”

Redmond School District would like to remind the public that graduation ceremonies are formal events and the use of noisemakers or other distractions are strongly discouraged out of respect to students and their families.
