Ordered through Jostens
Jostens is the local partner for class rings and graduation attire for Melbourne High School. Traditionally, Jostens sends a representative to campus for a live presentation to our junior and senior classes about these items. Due to the pandemic, Jostens has elected to create a completely online ordering platform this year. Please be sure to read through each section that is applicable to your student.
Orders can also be placed online at https://flgrad.com/
Josten’s local phone number 321-242-2055
School Counselors have been meeting with seniors all year. If you have not yet had an individual meeting with your school counselor call and make an appointment. Parents are encouraged to attend with their senior students. Please call the guidance office to schedule an appointment with your students’ counselor 321-952-5880. Be sure to say it is for your “senior meeting.” We can meet via zoom, in person, or by phone. Be sure to designate your format when making your appointment.
