All seniors will have graduation practice (schedule TBD). Students will receive an overview with the details of the ceremony and our expectations. Then they will move to the band hall to line up and practice going through the main parts of the ceremony in the gym. Students will pick up their caps and gown after the graduation practice is complete.
The evening prior to graduation, Tuesday, May 28th, 2019, we come together and celebrate our graduates with an event known as Senior Salute. At Senior Salute awards are given, students perform a skit that makes fun of the staff, the staff has a movie they show to entertain the students and all of the soon to be graduates are called on stage to receive their magnet endorsements. It’s a big deal. Students dress up a bit, laugh at themselves and their teachers and go home with a copy of a memory book. This is a really wonderful event that is truly not to be missed. This year Senior Salute will be at Grace Covenant.
The Class of 2019 will graduate Wednesday May 29th at 4:00pm downtown at the Erwin Center. You are encouraged to plan to arrive early and take the shuttles. For more information on parking, please click here. Also, please review the new security procedures at the Erwin Center and plan for the time it will take you to go through security.
Project Graduation is the lock-in held the night of graduation. It has two main purposes. The first is to keep our graduates safe. Unfortunately, across the country, graduation night is one of the deadliest with recent graduates hopping from one party to the next. Use of alcohol and drugs tends to increase and car accidents are a major concern. Secondly, Project Graduation gives students a place to meet with their Class one last time as a group. They can hang out in the “casino”, swim in the pool, watch hired acts such as a hypnotist, and wander through rooms with various entertainments in each. There are drawings for prizes throughout the night and students get a chance to reconnect with some of their classmates revisiting their four years before heading off to college. Project Graduation tickets will be on sale closer to the event through the LBJ/LASA PTSA.
