COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Anticipation is growing as nearly 2,000 seniors embark on the next phase of their lives beginning this Friday.

It will be a busy few days at the Civic Center as hundreds of families and friends celebrate the Muscogee County School District's eight high school graduations. While it's a joyous occasion, it's important to also remember the rules.

We welcomed Valerie Fuller, communications director for the district, to our studios Wednesday to tell us about what we're calling graduation etiquette.

Graduation Etiquette:

*Clap only after each row has been called

*Pictures taken from seats without obstructing views

*No one is allowed on the floor

*No noisemakers, balloons, signs or flowers inside

*Gifts to be given outside of building

*Don't linger inside after ceremony

Below is a schedule of the graduation ceremonies. They will be held at the Columbus Civic Center. Remember that we will stream them live online this Friday and Saturday on
