Commencement is an another word for graduation which refers to a ceremony someone would be bound to attend after he or she finishes their entire school work(or after they did a certain required amount of work as to do so) before going out into the society(or move ahead in order to recieve more advanced education)

I mean, it's hard to believe....
that my school life is...finally OVER."

'Commencement' might indicate the end of your school life

but it also contains the definition of 'the beginning'.

It's too soon to say that it's over,

YET."
