Graduation and Practices

Graduation Date: May 31st at 6:00 pm at Rolling Meadows High School Football Field

(Rain date: June 1st at 6:00)


Student report time: 5:30-5:40 pm They should find their seats on the football field at RMHS when they arrive.


Every student has 6 guests they can bring to graduation. Seating is not assigned. We will not be sending home tickets. All guests will sit in the bleachers. Accessible seating is available for all who require it. When you arrive at the football field, look for a Sandburg staff member for assistance.


Graduation Practice will occur at Sandburg on Friday, May 27th during the school day. It's very important all students are in attendance this day to practice and turn in their Chromebooks.


Students will receive their gowns at school on May 27th. We encourage the kids to take them out of their bags and hang them up over the weekend.


8th graders do have school on May 31st. It's a half day. Dismissal is at 10:35 am. On this day, we will have a quick practice to review what we learned on Friday and have a brief assembly for students and staff only. Students may keep their gowns after the graduation ceremony.


Diplomas will be mailed to all students after all fees are paid and Chromebooks have been collected. You will receive them mid-June.

Chromebook Collection

All student Chromebooks will be collected on Friday, May 27th. Students must bring their device, charger, and the chromebook case to school that day.


Diplomas will not be issued if the device is not delivered to school on the 27th.

Graduation Signs

We have purchased one Graduation Signs for each 8th grader to put in their front yard. Given the signs and metal posts can be a hazard for students to transport on the bus, parents/guardians must come to come to school to pick up their yard sign.


The school office is open from 6:35-3:30 Monday through Friday. We will also be open in the evening on May 5th for Parent Open House.

Flowers to Purchase

We are working with the Commencement Group to provide flowers and gifts for graduation. You can preorder ahead of time to pick up at graduation on site. Feel free to review the flyer that is linked below.
