Commencement Reminders

Commencement Exercises

The Fiftieth Annual Commencement Ceremony will take place at Bob Devaney Sports Center on Sunday, May 28th at 4:30 p.m.  All graduates will report to the staging area by 3:15 p.m. to receive last minute instructions and to organize the “Senior Walk.”

Appropriate Dress

Men:  Dress shoes and socks; dress slacks (no shorts); dress shirt (tie preferred but not required).

Women:  Dress, skirt, or dress slacks (no shorts) and dress blouse; dress shoes.

Caps and Gowns

Mortarboards should be worn with the flat surface horizontal and the tassel over the right eye.  Gowns may need light pressing with a cool iron.  It is best to hang the gown for a few days to remove the wrinkles.  Nothing is to be added to the cap or gown, and no items are to be taken into the arena to distract from the ceremony.  Corsages are not considered appropriate for wearing on the gowns.  Members of the National Honor Society can wear medallions that may be purchased in the East High administrative office.
