Graduation Attire



Aren't we so proud of our Senior Class of 2023. They still have a bit to go in finishing strong all together to in turn gather all together with our community Wednesday May 24th at 7:30pm in the Idaho Center. Now that our graduates have their cap and gown plans for dress are a priority.


Please be aware of the following guidelines:

  • Graduation is a school organized event.
  • Graduation is our largest, classiest, community event for all to enjoy so the following guidelines help us focus on the class as a whole and recognize each graduate appropriately.
  • Appropriate dress for our graduating Ladies: a dress, skirt and blouse, or dress slacks.
  • Appropriate dress for our graduating Gentlemen: a shirt with a collar and dress slacks.
  • All graduates must wear shoes in the Idaho Center (if you are wearing new shoes it is recommended to wear those to graduation practice).
  • The classy uniform of the 2023 class's cap and gown unites us, cords and cowls provided by the school are allowed, decorative lays are allowed, and decorating the top of the cap is allowed. All these additions to the cap and gown must be school appropriate. No other additions over or on the cap and gown are allowed.
  • Sunglasses are not allowed. Other carry along items are encouraged to stay with the family in the stands or in the vehicle.
  • Please be advised there is no security provided for graduate items left unattended during the ceremony.
  • It is encouraged if the graduate chooses not to decorate their cap to write your name inside, so caps can more easily be found after the cap toss at the end.
  • A Herff Jones representative will be at our MANDATORY practice on Wednesday, May 24 at 9:30am, if you have any issues with your cap and gown. Ahead of time contact can also be made at 208.861.0064 or [email protected]


Each year we have the classiest ceremony, and we are so proud of our graduating class. We look forward to another great graduation ceremony.
