Senior Graduation Info


One of the most important things you can do is subscribe to the Class of 2018’s account.  Let’s face it, you don’t listen to announcements, but you do need to stay in the loop in terms of graduation happenings.  I will text out important reminders, and I promise that I will not text too often.  Text @coogs2018 to 81010 to subscribe.

  • Students will be required to be in dress code to participate in Cibola’s commencement ceremonies. The dress code is as follows:
    • White cap and gown with gold stole purchased from campus specialties. They are a local company, located at 1529 Eubank Blvd # B, Albuquerque, NM 87112
    • Campus Specialties was on campus on 9/21 to talk about caps and gowns. If you (or your student) missed this meeting, they can pick up a packet in the Activities Office.
    • You may also order your cap and gown online at
      • After December 1st, the prices may increase. The deadline to purchase is March 1st , 2018.
  • Students must wear a white dress with white dress shoes or black slacks, white dress shirt, black tie, black socks, and black shoes. Questions about attire should be directed to Ms. Chavez.
  • Announcement Distribution Date, no checks accepted, March 22, 2018, in the Concourse at lunch.
  • Senior Finals – May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.  The 4th of May is the last day of school for the Class of 2018.
  • Senior Barbeque – Wednesday, May 9th, 5:30 pm, Cibola High School.  The BBQ is not required, but it is fun, and it is free!
  • Caps and Gowns will be handed out on Wednesday, May 9th at Cibola High School, at 1pm.  You cannot receive your cap and gown until your account is clear of all fees.  So…pay your fees before May 10th. You can check ParentVue/StudentVue online to pay student fees.
  • On Thursday, May 10th, we will have two activities that are required for all graduating seniors.
  1.    8:30 am – graduation rehearsal
  • Rehearsal will be followed by senior breakfast.
  • You must attend rehearsal, in full graduation attire, or you will not “walk the line”.
  • We will follow senior breakfast with optional Graduate Walks at our neighborhood elementary schools.  This year, we will visit Sierra Vista and 7 Bar.  While this is not required, the students that have participated in the past have found these “walks” to be a highlight of their graduation weeks.
  1.    5:30 pm – Honors Assembly
  • At 5:30 pm all graduates must report back to Cibola to get ready for the Senior Awards Assembly.
  • The Awards Assembly begins at 6:30pm. Doors will open at 6:00.

Doors open at 5:30.   Seating is on a first come, first served basis.  Noisemakers, glass vases, balloons, and signs are prohibited.
