Graduation

Graduation has been moved from Burger Stadium to Burger Center. Given the size of the alternate venue, Bowie respectfully requests that each graduate limit their guests to 5!

JUNE 3 - UPDATE

Good morning Bowie Seniors and Families!

 

We are excited to see you today at 7pm for Bowie’s graduation ceremony! Due to the location change to the Burger Activity Center, shuttles will now be dropping off students and families on the 290 side of the stadium. This is also where visitors will enter the Activity Center, through the blue doors. We strongly encourage you to take the shuttle from Bowie to Burger! Parking at Burger will be limited.

 

Families: If you plan to drive your own vehicle, please try to park on the 290 side. The Jones Rd parking lot will be open as well- if you park on that side, please enter the stadium gates, walk out onto the track, and cross to the other side of the stadium. There will be Austin ISD officers helping direct you.

 

Seniors: You will check in by the baseball field. You must enter through the fence gate on the 290 side by the baseball bleachers, so make sure you take the shuttle or get dropped off on the 290 side. Please arrive by 6pm. You must check in no later than 6:30. Please arrive in your cap and gown.

 

Shuttles will run from Bowie starting at 5:30. Please board the shuttle at the front of Bowie.

 

Please remember that masks are required at all AISD events. We ask that you do not bring balloons, noisemakers, or any other item that may detract from another's enjoyment of the ceremony.
