    In case there is a chance of rain and we all know we live in Texas so you know want that means weather is unpredictable and it could end up sunny but………….

    We would recommend telling your students to put their hat and tassel, stoles, cords in a plastic bag to help keep them dry and secure in case of rain while they are entering the graduation venue.  Many of them may be running in to keep from getting completely drenched and may loose items running in which makes for a stressful start to the student for graduation.    Many kids try to use their mortarboard hat as an umbrella from the rain and mortarboard and rain not a great combination.   We appreciate you sharing this information with your students and mostly their families.
