The graduation rehearsal is mandatory for all seniors wishing to participate in the Commencement Ceremony. Graduation practice will be held on Wednesday, May 30th at 2:45 p.m. in the main cafeteria.


The Class of 2018 will graduate on Thursday, May 31st, 2018 at 7:30 pm. The ceremony will be held at CCISD Challenger Columbia Stadium. In the case of inclement weather, the Commencement Ceremony will be held in two sessions and will take place in the Clear Springs High School Gymnasium. Rain tickets will be distributed to students at Senior Clearance.

Graduating seniors are to arrive at the CCHS Main Cafeteria promptly at 4:30 p.m. and park in the CCHS student lot. They should be carrying their full graduation regalia. It is mandatory that all graduates be transported to Challenger Columbia Stadium by bus. After the ceremony, buses will be available to return the graduates to CCHS, or they can make alternative transportation arrangements before leaving the stadium. Seniors will not be allowed to carry anything during the ceremony and should leave all personal items at home or in their vehicle. Students will not be allowed to bring cell phones to the ceremony.

It is important that students are reminded of the proper etiquette and respectful behavior needed for the Commencement Ceremony. Students will review behavior and dress expectations during Senior Class Visits in May. The following dress code for the graduation ceremony will be strictly enforced: Men: wear a white or light colored button down shirt, tie, black slacks, and black dress shoes. Simple jewelry, such as a watch, is acceptable. Women: wear a straight dress with simple neckline (or a skirt and blouse) that does not extend below the gown, with dress shoes. Girls must wear flat shoes. Do not wear spiked heels or stacked wedges. Simple jewelry is acceptable. It is our hope that parents will reinforce the proper behaviors so that a dignified and meaningful ceremony can occur.

We ask that relatives and friends in the stadium refrain from disrespectful behavior during the ceremony. Any use of noise-makers or loud yelling during the ceremony might cause another student’s name to not be heard. Our top priority at Commencement is to ensure that each graduating senior is properly acknowledged for his/her achievement.
