Graduation Information

One of the most important things you can do is subscribe to the Class of 2021’s account.  It is really important that you stay in the loop in terms of graduation happenings.  I will text out important reminders and Mr. Sena will text out college and financial aid info. We’ve used the same account since your freshman year, and so most of you are already enrolled.

Find Your Senior Remind Codes

First off, you will be required to be in dress code to participate in Cibola’s commencement ceremonies.  The dress code is as follows:

  1. White cap and gown with gold stole purchased from campus specialties. They are a local company and so you can visit their store, or you can order online.  The deadline to order is March 1st, 2020.  Herff Jones,(505) 275-9357, 1529 Eubank Blvd # B, Albuquerque, NM 87112 
  2. Students must wear a white dress with white or nude dress shoes or black slacks, white dress shirt, black tie, black socks, and black shoes.  Traditional cultural attire may be worn under the cap and gown.  Questions about attire should be directed to Ms. Chavez.

        • We will follow rehearsal with optional Graduate Walks at our neighborhood elementary schools.  This year, we will visit 7 Bar Elementary and one other feeder elementary school.  While this is not required, the students that have participated in the past have found these “walks” to be a highlight of their graduation experience.

        • At 5:30 pm all graduates must report back to Cibola to get ready for the Senior Awards Assembly.
