HST Job Assignments - Day of Event

HST Job Assignments

​All HSTs are expected to be ​at ​​the ​graduation ceremony from 12pm-5pm. You will notice there is an RC leading each duty station who you will be required to check-in with on the day of the ceremony. It's very important everything is covered on that day.​

What Should I Wear?

All Inspire staff members attending our ceremony should dress in business casual attire and wear their Inspire name badge.

We will have name tags for you if you do not have one.


Parking is going to be TIGHT! The venue has asked that we do our best to carpool to optimize parking spaces at the venue. We are also asking that you park in the lot across the street from the venue to allow families to have access to the closer spaces. See below.

Check here to view our list of families who are planning to attend the ceremony. There are tabs organized by county at the bottom. Please contact Jen & Courtney with any changes.

Student Performances

Did you have a student who indicated he/she was interested in performing at our ceremony? At this time all performers have been selected. An email has been sent to both families who had children selected AND those who were not selected. Below are the students we will have at the ceremony for your reference:

Leading the Pledge of Allegiance: Lea Cole (5th)

Violin Performance: Dominic Frohwein (8th)

Piano Performance: Caleb Anderson (12th)

Senior Address: Taylor Mollman (12th)

12th Grade Caps and Gowns

12th grade students had the option to:

1) purchase their own cap and gown through Jostens to keep. Please click here to view the instructions for ordering a cap and gown that can be shared with families.


2) borrow a loaner cap and gown to wear at the ceremony from Inspire. Families have already indicated if this is something they want to do on the initial RSVP survey. Loaner caps and gowns will be handed out at the graduation ceremony. They will not be sent out to the families in advance.

*12th grade students are encouraged to wear pants with button up shirts, blouses, dresses, and/or skirts underneath their cap and gown.

Graduate Photos


Families were asked to upload a photo of their child in our initial RSVP survey. You can check this spreadsheet to see if your student's photo was submitted. Remember, it is organized by county at the bottom.

Slideshow Pictures:

How do I know by looking at the spreadsheet who submitted a photo for the ceremony slideshow?

  • Look for the column that says "Upload a photo for the slideshow (Optional)" - submitting a photo is optional, so keep in mind not all parents may have wanted their student's picture to be in the slideshow.
  • If there is anything written in that column (even if it is jumbled numbers and letters), that means the parent uploaded a photo for the slideshow.

My student didn't initially submit a picture or wants to swap out the picture they initially uploaded. How do I submit a new picture for them?

  • HSTs should email their student's name and new picture directly to the Ceremony Leads (Courtney & Jen), and the Ceremony Leads can add it to the slideshow.
  • Please use the following naming convention when sending:

Naming Convention: LastName_FirstName_Grade
Example: Smith_John_8th


Please contact our Graduation Leads with any questions you might have!
