Writing a graduation announcement requires writing a thoughtful, short paragraph that states the name of the young graduate, the parents of the graduate, the high school or college where the graduation ceremony is taking place, the time of the graduation ceremony and an invitation for the guests to attend the ceremony itself or the graduation party afterwords. Graduation announcements can also include a photo of the student graduating.

One of the examples from is, "Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Davidson are pleased to announce the graduation of their daughter Elizabeth from Lynnwood Day School on the second of May two thousand and eighteen at four in the afternoon 7688 Lynnwood Drive Bess, Vermont."

Another example from reads, "Adrienne Lemmons is proud to announce her graduation from Besstow College with a Major in Accounting. Please share this special day with her on Friday, June 8, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Besstow College Auditorium."

The phrasing is up to the writer of the invitation and can be written in whatever way he or she likes. The important thing to remember is to include all of the pertinent details so that guests can find the graduation ceremony or graduation party without any trouble.
