Lake Creek High School Graduation 2023 will be held on Tuesday, May 23rd @ 6:00pm at Johnson Coliseum on the campus of Sam Houston State University.

There is NOT a limit on the number of guests a graduate can invite.

Lake Creek High School graduation is a special ceremony for our students and community.  Fog horns, cowbells, silly string, beach balls, etc., are NOT appropriate for this kind of ceremony.  We want every parent/relative/friend in the audience to be able to hear their special student’s name announced and awarded a diploma. 

All graduates must be in the Health and Kinesiology Center across the street no later than 5:15pm for line up and final instructions. Only participates are allowed in the Health and Kinesiology Center. The coliseum will open for seating at 5:00 pm.


On the stage, graduates will be handed a LCHS Diploma cover. The diploma will be given to the graduates on Wednesday, May 24th in the morning. LCHS Counseling will be organizing a drive-thru pick diploma/breakfast. Diplomas that are not picked up with be returned to the campus registrar. Students may pick up from there at a later date.


A professional photographer from ImaginLight will be on duty to take pictures of all graduating seniors.  Picture order forms will be given to students at the Graduation practice on Tuesday, May 23rd. The packet with money/check will be collected at a table located by door #20 in the coliseum before graduation. Order forms may also be mailed to ImaginLight.

Johnson Coliseum Entry Policy


Cap and Gown Etiquette

The caps are worn with the mortarboard flat. Students are allowed to decorate their mortarboards. The design needs to follow the MISD dress code requirements and only be on top of the mortarboard. Males should remove the graduation cap during the National Anthem, Opening remarks and pledge. They will then replace the cap on head and fix tassel. Females do not need to remove cap.

Young men should wear dress slacks or pressed jeans (no holes) with a white collared shirt. Ties are encouraged, but optional. Young women are to wear dresses, dress slacks, or starched jeans. Dress shoes, boots or dress sandals that complement the gown must be worn. You will be walking so make sure you can walk a long distance in your heels if you choose to wear them.

NO corsages, ribbons, pins, flags, etc on gowns are allowed. Only district approved cords, pins, stoles, honor medals, and National Honor Society collars may be worn. You may wear a military stole if you received one from your recruiter.

When all seniors follow this pattern of dress, the class will look uniform in its caps and gowns, lending the proper dignity to the graduation ceremony.

DO NOT BRING A PURSE or personal items with you. You will not be allowed back into the Health and Kinesiology building after graduation.

REMEMBER, this is a formal ceremony. During the graduation exercises, mature conduct is expected. Please do not talk during the graduation exercises. The staff has worked hard to make this a dignified occasion, which will be a cherished memory for all participants and guests.

In the event of inclement weather, graduates will meet on the floor of the coliseum at their assigned seat. If we need to meet on the floor a message through school messenger will be sent.


All males must sign up for Selective Service upon the 18th birthday.  No federally funded financial aid will be awarded without this being done.
