    Cap and Gown

    Must order! (Even if no announcements are ordered) Our Chisholm Trail purple is distinct and must be ordered through Jostens. The cap and gown is not the same as in previous years. If you wait to order, the cost will go up. These will be delivered on March 28 and 29 during all 3 lunches in the small lecture hall.

    If you are ordering cap, gown and gold stole only, the cost is now $54.07 including tax.

    (Remember, the longer you wait to order, the more the cost)

    Options to pay:

    1. Online at www.Jostens.com

    2. Call 1-800-JOSTENS

    Graduation will be held on June 1st 2018, 10:00 AM at the Fort Worth Convention Center.



    Class Picture and Mandatory Practice

    1. We will take our senior class picture the week of May 28. All seniors must have their cap, gown and stole to be in the picture.

    2. Graduation practice will be held at Chisholm Trail High School on May 31 at 9:05 AM. [Dress rehearsal. ALL STUDENTS NEED TO HAVE CAP GOWN AND STOLE ON!]. This is a mandatory practice.

    Please be aware that the dress code for graduation will be strictly enforced.

    Young ladies are required to wear a dress (no strapless or backless) or black dress pants and black shoes under CTHS purple robes.

    Young men are required to wear black or very dark slacks with black shoes/black dress boots under CTHS robes. Long sleeve dress shirts with ties are traditionally worn.

    All shoes worn must be black – no flip-flops, slippers or sneakers.

    There is a check–in process at graduation for dress code to assure that these guidelines are followed. This is a very important day for you and your family.

    Attendance is more important than ever. Please be very aware of your attendance.

Seniors who remain out of attendance compliance will not receive class credit and therefore will not graduate and walk the stage. This is a TEA state ruling. Senior must be in attendance for the full semester/year.
