    • Students will be walking on the dirt path along the first base line when they enter, and therefore should wear flat shoes (no heels).

Parents of graduates with last names A-L will sit along the 1st base line.  Parents of graduates with last names M-Z will sit along the 3rd base line. 
  • Where do we enter the stadium? Guests with special needs can enter through the “Main Entrance” and will be guided to a designated seating area on the concourse. All other guests should enter at the “1st Base Gate”.
  • Handicap Seating:  Handicapped seating is available.  Please contact our office so that tickets can be issued in these designated areas.   
  • What happens if it rains on graduation day? 
    If we should have to cancel the ceremony due to inclement weather, we will notify all families by 11:15 am that day. We will transition to an indoor graduation at 7:30  pm on June 3, 2024 at Hoffman Estates High School . 
  • Yearbooks:  For those families that have purchased a yearbook for their child, it is our goal to distribute them to the eighth grade students along with the graduation gowns on Wednesday, May 29.
  • Eighth grade students will clean out their lockers on Wednesday, May 29, 2024.  
  • Chromebook Return:  On Thursday, May 30, 2024, eighth-grade students will be returning their Chromebooks and Chromebook Chargers during the last two periods of the day. The last day for eighth grade students to access their Google account will be Friday, May 31.
  • Student Behavior:  Any inappropriate behaviors which occur before the end of the year could cause your child to be excluded from the 8th grade graduation ceremony.  

Please help us keep this evening one where every Eisenhower Eagles are given the appropriate and earned respect for their eighth grade graduation.  Every family is excited about seeing their child graduate. Please ensure all families will be able to hear their child’s name be announced during the ceremony.  


In closing, the graduation ceremony should be a meaningful, pleasant experience for you as well as your graduate.  For that to happen, we need your cooperation.  If you plan to take pictures, please make sure to take them outside of the stadium to provide time for the stadium staff to prepare for the arrival of the next school. 


We appreciate your continued support as we conclude this school year.  Please contact us at any time if you have any questions.
