The Class Ring Ceremony

Ring ceremonies typically take place in the fall of the school year. For the Juniors, they are celebrating their newly-gained status as upperclassmen, and for the Seniors, they are celebrating their final year in high school.

Class Ring Ceremony

Traditionally it is just the students who participate in the ceremony, but for parents who also have a class ring from the same school, many times they are asked to wear their class rings to the ceremony.

Class Ring Ceremony

Ring ceremonies can vary from one school to the next but a classic ceremony includes inspirational speeches from staff/teachers and then the distribution of the rings.

Class Ring Ceremony

Each student’s name is called out and then that student goes up onto the stage to accept their ring. It is traditionally the teachers at the school who give the rings to the students. A student may request that a particular teacher give him or her their ring. The ring is in a closed box and the box stays closed as the student returns to their seat.

This continues until all the students have received their rings and are once again back in their seats. At this point all the students are asked to stand and then, all at once, they are asked to open their boxes and reveal their rings.

If the school is parochial, sometimes a blessing is bestowed upon the rings. Otherwise, at this point the celebration is complete and a short gathering of students, and parents, occurs with refreshments and students sharing the look of their rings with each other.
