Elementary Senior "Walks"

Due to COVID-19, LISD Elementary schools are not having the traditional Elementary Senior Walk. However, most are still organizing events for seniors to celebrate their accomplishments. Here is the information that has been shared with us:

Senior Celebration: Saturday, May 1st - SAVE THE DATE!!


**None of the LISD Schools will be having an official prom this year. LHS will be hosting a free LHS Senior Celebration Night on May 1st at Bible Stadium in lieu of prom, if we have enough interest. You must RSVP by Wednesday, April 14th to attend, so that we can gauge interest. This event will be for LHS seniors and their guests.


Attendees will be required to wear masks, complete a screener, and agree to only socialize within their small group “pod,” which we will keep a record of names. In the event of a needed quarantine, students could miss out on school or other events. If a student misses an AP exam, there will be an additional opportunity to take the exam virtually in late May through early June, depending on the exam.

  • When? Saturday, May 1st at Bible Stadium

  • 7 pm - Red Carpet Walk - Seniors can wear a formal for this celebration. Parents are welcome to attend this portion of the night and sit on the HOME bleachers at Bible Stadium.

  • 8 pm - Entertainment

    • We will have a DJ and local band “Yesterday” as evening entertainment. Social distancing will be practiced and students can relax while listening to the bands and DJ. Students can bring a blanket to sit on the field (no food or drinks) or sit in the stands (with food/drinks from the concession stand) within their pods.

  • Seniors can stay in their formals or bring other clothes to change into after the red carpet walk. King & queen will be crowned and senior superlatives announced.

  • Concession Stand will be provided by project graduation.

  • RSVP Form - Again, you MUST RSVP by Wednesday, April 14th if you plan to attend. Will we ask for names in your “pod” the week of the event.

PROJECT GRADUATION - www.lhsprojectgrad.com

This year’s project graduation has been cancelled, but the project graduation committee is still working to help celebrate this year’s seniors. A GoFundMe charity campaign is on the website to help host a parade for the seniors and to purchase gift cards for all seniors.


Be on the lookout for other fundraisers such as senior yard signs and the concession stand at the senior celebration on May 1st.


SENIOR PARADE/ SENIOR SUNSET - May 26th:

Project graduation is hosting a senior parade on Wednesday, May 26th at 6:30 pm. You will be able to decorate vehicles and we will follow the typical homecoming parade route, lining up on the bumpy road at the back of LHS towards Lakeline.


Seniors are encouraged to join teachers and their classmates at Bible Stadium after the parade for a senior sunset.
