Details for Graduation Ceremony Performance

Details for Graduation Tuesday, May 21

9:00 Call time in DCHS Stadium with instrument and music. We will start playing as early as 9:35 before the ceremony starts, so it's important to arrive on time to get setup and warmup.

There will be no parking available on campus, unless you have a ticket for your graduating senior. One option for getting to campus is to park at the Walmart by the school and take the trolley to campus (cycles about every 15 minutes). Students can also be dropped off on campus, but they cannot park on campus. If you are relying on the Walmart trolley to get to school, I recommend getting to the Walmart parking lot by 8:30.

10:00 Ceremony begins. We will play the Star Spangled Banner and Pomp and Circumstance for the ceremony. Gently Touch the Sky and Flourish for Wind Band will be played before the ceremony.

Approx. 11:30 Ceremony concludes. Students need to bring stands/equipment back into band room and pick up in the bleachers. The band program does receive money for our part in cleaning up the stadium bleachers. This process only takes 10 minutes with everyone participating.

Approx. 12:15 Students can be picked up from the band room. Please keep in mind that this time may change depending on the length of the ceremony.

Remember, if you have a graduating sibling, you may be excused from band activities on Tuesday. The stage and seniors are visible from where the band will be performing and sitting. If you choose to join your family for the ceremony, please let Mr. Aliga know as soon as possible.

Attire for the ceremony. Semi-formal attire. Boys can wear collared shirts/ties and dress pants/khakis and dress shoes. Girls can wear dresses or dress pants with a blouse or dress shirt. Please, no jeans. We will be outside. Bring appropriate clothing for the weather.
