Back To Front Page


The 128th annual Chesterton High School commencement exercises will be hosted on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. at the CHS Football Stadium (weather permitting).

The program includes presentation of honor students by Jeff Van Drie, Principal; awarding of the diplomas by Dr. Ginger Bolinger, Superintendent of Schools; James Goetz, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction; Monte Moffett, Assistant Superintendent for Operations and Human Resources, and the officers and members of the DSC Board of Trustees; the traditional turning of the tassels, and closing.

Admission tickets will be required if commencement has to be moved to the gym. The doors at the gym will be opened at 6 p.m. Each senior will be issued up to eight tickets for his/her parents and relatives. Those not needing to use all their tickets are asked to return the extra tickets to the main office as soon as possible, so they may be redistributed to those who request tickets for additional family members. This information will be announced at the school.

If weather permits and commencement is held outside, these tickets will allow those ticket holders to be seated outside as early as 5:30 p.m. General admission will begin at 6 p.m.

Special tickets are required for those guests who are physically unable to climb the bleachers. Regular tickets may be exchanged for the special seating tickets in the main office. Special handicapped parking will be available. It is recommended that seniors and those with mobility limitations be dropped off while other family members park the vehicle elsewhere.

A decision as to whether the commencement will be held inside or outside will be made on Wednesday, May 30. This announcement will be made to senior students and via local radio stations and newspapers.
