For graduation tomorrow night we will be using the new entrance to the football stadium that is located where the old tennis court is located at 400 College Street. The old drive that goes by the baseball field will be closed. Please reach out to any of your family and friends that do not have Facebook or would receive a staff or parent email from the school to let them know the change. We are excited to celebrate our 2022 graduates tomorrow night.

Dear Seniors of 2022 and Parents: Please review the information surrounding graduation and associated events. Please note that graduation is scheduled to be at the Italy HS Stadium. In the event of inclement weather, graduation exercises and any other events scheduled for the stadium will be at the Dome. Commencement Practice – Required On Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 1:00 pm at the stadium, we will have a mandatory practice for seniors participating in the commencement exercise. Practice was changed from its original date and time so seniors could practice at the stadium instead of the dome. Seniors must be in attendance and participate in the practice at the stadium in order to participate in the graduation ceremony. This is a necessity for planning and making the ceremony a serene and dignified event. Students not in appropriate school dress or exhibiting behavior that is a violation of the code of conduct at the practice will not be allowed to participate; therefore, they will lose the opportunity to participate in the ceremony on Friday. Students need to take care of all outstanding fines and return all school owned material. Any student not in compliance will NOT receive a diploma on the day of graduation. Commencement – Friday, May 27, 2022, Italy High School Stadium at 7:00pm Commencement will take place on Friday, May 27, 2022 at the Italy High School Stadium starting at 7:00 pm. All students must arrive by 6:00 pm to participate in the ceremony and should report to the new field house at the stadium for final instructions. Senior candidates for graduation are expected to be dressed appropriately for the ceremony. Boys are to wear dark slacks (NO JEANS, please), dark solid color shoes, and a light colored shirt with a tie under their graduation gowns. Girls are to wear a dark dress (if it extends beyond the gown) or a dark skirt or slacks, and neutral solid colored shoes (dress shoes – NO FLIP FLOPS or tennis shoes) with their graduation gowns. We will have staff members present to help with gowns, caps, and any other clothing issues. The “mortar board” style graduation cap is to be worn flat on the top of the head. Writing or messages on any of the clothing is not allowed. Students who are not dressed appropriately or come to the ceremony in violation of Italy ISD code of conduct will not be allowed to participate. Our staff will help monitor before and during the ceremony. Students will not be allowed to possess cameras, cell phones, or any other electronic devices at the stadium or on the floor of the Dome. After the ceremony families should plan to meet graduates on the outside of the Italy High School Stadium or outside the Dome in the event of inclement weather. If the ceremony is in the Dome, during the recessional, students will exit the dome through the front entrance. We understand that there are many people who are extremely excited about their children, relatives, or friends graduating. We desire to accommodate all of you by having a serene and dignified presentation of diplomas. Please note that every senior student deserves the right to have his/her name called without distraction from others. Please no air horns, cow bells, or any other noise devices. We look forward to a great ceremony, and I am looking forward to you joining us on Friday, May 27, 2022 at 7:00 pm at the Italy High School Stadium or the Dome in the event of inclement weather. May 22, 2022 – Baccalaureate Ceremony at 5:00 pm at Mr. Gilead Baptist Church May 23, 2022 – Senior Luau at First Baptist Church at 12:00pm May 25, 2022 – Senior Walk at Stafford Elementary (Load bus at 8:30am) May 25, 2022 – Senior/Scholarship Awards at 9:30am in the Dome May 25, 2022 – Early Release for Students – 12:30 May 26, 2022 – Graduation Practice at 1:00 pm at the stadium May 25, 2022 – Senior Luncheon at Central Baptist Church at 11:00pm May 27, 2022 – Graduation at 7:00pm at the stadium GRATEFUL to be a GLADIATOR, Sharon Graves
