graduations congrratulations wished

Celebration is in the air, the price has been paid, the sacrifices made and impressive achievements have been made, so now it’s time to celebrate with the almost-graduates. If your loved ones, family or friends are graduating then the prayers, graduation congratulations texts, well-wishing and words of encouragement are already coming in by now and yours should not be missing.

For the youth, graduation is filled high hopes, expectations and a lot of confusion about what the future holds. You can do your part in making them feel better by writing warm messages and words full of hope and assurance.

02“Look ahead to the future, you have done your best and your best has brought out the excellence in you. You may be done with high school but another journey has just begun. I wish you success every step of the way and lots of luck as you climb the ladder to greatness.”

 

03“As you move on to university, make the most of every opportunity you get, show kindness to those who deserve it and stay away from those who don’t. Life throughout university is not only about getting a good job at the end of your education; it’s about making a difference and putting your best in everything you do.”

 

04“Hurray!!! I celebrate with you this day as you graduate out of high school. Pack up all you have learned from here and use the knowledge wisely as you go further into your studies. Always strive to do anything you do to the best of your ability the first time, and if for some reason you don’t get it right, keep trying till you do

08“A new start is here, do not relent in your hard work; have fun every step of the way and do not be afraid to make mistakes, they make you stronger and more experienced. A hundred steps taken and missed are better than a hundred regrets of wishing you had at least taken a step.”

 

09“The sky is the limit for you. You are one of the most courageous and endearing people I know. As I watch you march up the stage my heart leaps for joy, as I know you have more than earned all the praises you receive today. Allow me to usher you into the new world in front of you with my congratulations.”

 

10“I look forward to watching you push through university as flawlessly as you have done through high school.

Conclusion

A simple congratulations on your graduation can be used to show how much you care and how much you are willing to provide support.

Leaving an academic system to a higher level, or for good, is a tough leap. No matter how composed or structured a person is there may still be a hint of lingering doubt as to what to do next, what step to take, what part of life to focus on, and what to avoid.

So, providing hearty graduation congratulations as an act of support should not be overlooked. You never know; you might be the next person getting a congratulatory message.

1. The graduate’s personality type

When deciding on what to write in a graduation card, it’s important to think about the graduate’s personality type. You don’t want to write a message that could be taken the wrong way.

One graduate may have a humorous personality and enjoy a funny quote while another may be more serious and appreciate a sentimental note.

2. Attending the commencement ceremony (or not)

Whether you’re attending the commencement ceremony or not has much bearing on your graduation card message. For example, if you are attending the ceremony, your message could be something like this:

  • “Congratulations! It’s an honor to be a part of your graduation day and watch you walk across the stage to receive your diploma.”

If you can’t make it to the ceremony, you can still choose a message that lets the graduate know your thoughts are with them on their special day. For example:

  • “Thinking of you with love and pride on your graduation day.”
  • “Even though we’ll miss seeing you in your cap and gown, we would never miss this chance to tell you we’re proud of you.”

3. Words of encouragement

Graduation is an exciting time, but it can also be scary for the graduate as well because he/she is venturing into a whole new chapter of life. If you’re older or more experienced, your message can offer encouraging words to build the graduate up and give them direction.

  • ‘Whatever you do, never stop learning, exploring, growing and challenging yourself to be your best.”
  • “Wherever the road leads, remember we will always be there to support and cheer you on.”

4. When the graduate is a close friend or relative

Your message can be personal and extra special if the graduate is a close friend or relative because you can mention childhood memories or past experiences like this:

  • “It seems like just yesterday you were just starting school and now, you’re receiving your diploma. It’s been a joy to watch you grow and achieve so much these past four years.”

What NOT to Write in a Graduation Card: 4 Things

1. Don’t be bossy. A graduation card is an opportunity for you to encourage the graduate, so refrain from telling them what they should or shouldn’t do. Give them helpful advice without being bossy.

  • “I hope you feel great about what you’ve accomplished, and I hope you’ll continue to be a person who shows up day in and day out for those things that are worthwhile and important in life.”

2. Don’t mention embarrassing memories. A graduate should feel confident and pleased with their accomplishments. Don’t bring up an embarrassing mistake they’ve made in the past.

3. Don’t use sarcasm or risky jokes unless you’re sure the graduate will take it in good humor.

4. Don’t tell the graduate what jobs to take. You may know of job openings or people with influence, but this is not what to write in a graduation card. Save it for another time.

6 Tips About Writing a Graduation Card

1. Polish and fix mistakes

Before you pen your message in the graduation card, handwrite it on paper or type it in a word processor so that you can edit and polish it. You might even go one step further and use a grammar tool, like Grammarly, to get your message just right.

2. Tell them you’re proud of them

Let the graduate know you are happy and proud of them for doing what it took to reach graduation.

  • “You are an achiever. You have made us all proud; keep up the good work. Congratulations on graduation.”

3. Be specific

Mention distinguished awards and accomplishments. Describe how much the graduate has grown and flourished over the time you’ve known them.

  • “Congratulations on graduating with honors. We’re so proud of you!”
  • “You’ve always been a hard worker driven by your passions and dreams. Congratulations!”
