Here is a description of the traditional Webb Dress for commencement.
Young Ladies: For Baccalaureate, graduates may wear a dress other than their white graduation dress. These dresses should be tasteful and appropriate for the occasion. This is not a party or social event, and I hope that all young ladies will be respectful of the event in their choice of dress. The same is true for the white graduation dress. Additionally, there are times when the weather can be cooler, and a white button up sweater/shrug may be needed. Dress shoes or dress sandals are also part of the outfit. Each female graduate will be given a Webb graduates’ necklace at graduation rehearsal which they are encouraged to wear.
Young Gentlemen: Most males wear the same outfit for both ceremonies - school blazer, white dress shirt, khaki pants, proper shoes, and socks. In addition, each graduate will be given a special graduates’ tie the day before graduation. We would like all males to wear this tie for the graduation ceremony and the class picture.
If you are interested in speaking at Graduation please submit a written speech to Mrs. Little firstname.lastname@example.org by April 25th. Any Senior may submit a speech.[A selected committee of advisers and students will choose the student graduation speaker]
The speech can be approximately 5 minutes long and can be read instead of memorized. Here are graduation videos from previous years.
TIME: Prom starts at 7:30 p.m., senior presentations begin at 8:00 p.m.
Location: The Ruby is located at 2411 Blakemore Ave., Nashville, TN 37212, in Hillsboro Village across from Vanderbilt University.
Senior presentation: 8 PM -- parents are welcome to attend
Parking: Because Blakemore Ave., is a busy street, there is no off-loading, pick up of guests, or stopping for any reason in front of the Ruby. When you arrive, a parking director will direct you to the adjacent designated school parking lot.
****All parking and unloading of limos MUST occur in the school parking lot.***
