As we approach spring, we wanted to provide an update on the eighth-grade graduation ceremony. We are excited to announce that this year’s event will be held 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 2, 2024 at Wintrust Field, also known as the Schaumburg Boomers Stadium.  In order to accommodate all families, we will be limiting each family to six tickets. Students will sit on the field with their classmates, while families will sit in the stands.  In the event of rain, we will hold our graduation ceremony on Monday, June 3, at 5:00 PM at Conant High School.  A livestream of the event will be posted to the District 54 YouTube Channel for individuals who are unable to be there that day.


Graduation Gowns and Medallions

For graduation, eighth grade students will be asked to order a graduation gown in our school colors and student medallion.  Both will be worn by each student attending the ceremony.  The cost of the graduation gown and medallion is $22.  Families have the following options to make payment.

  • Log on to the School Store on the Infinite Campus Parent Portal and pay for the gown and medallion via credit card.  There is a $2 processing fee so the total charged is $24.  
  • Send your child to school with or bring payment of $22, cash or check, made payable to Keller Junior High during school hours of 7:30 – 3:30 PM.
  • Contact me if there is a financial hardship keeping you from being able to make payment.


Graduation Practice

Graduation Practice will take place on Friday, May 31st.

  • If your child is participating in the ceremony, then it is a requirement for your child to attend Graduation Practice on May 31st.
  • Graduation Practice will take place outside and on campus at Keller.
  • Please plan with your child for the potential of warm weather on the day of graduation practice by making sure they come to school with a water bottle and sunscreen if needed.
  • More information regarding graduation practice will be forthcoming as we get closer to the date.


Graduation Ceremony 

The graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 12:30 PM on Sunday, June 2nd, at Wintrust Field (also known as Schaumburg Boomers Stadium) 1999 South Springinsguth Road, Schaumburg.  

  • Graduates should arrive no later than 12:00 PM and report to the small parking lot on the southeast side of the stadium. Families are asked to park in the south lot. 
  • A livestream of the ceremony will be posted to theDistrict 54 YouTube Channel for those who do not wish to participate in person or are unable to be there that day. All students’ names will be read during the ceremony whether they attend in person or remotely. 
  • Students will be walking on the dirt path along the first base line when they enter and therefore should wear flat shoes (no heels).

In the event of rain, we will hold our graduation ceremony on Monday, June 3rd, at 5:00 PM at Conant High School


8th Grade Physicals

We no longer send student physicals to the high schools when the eighth graders graduate, as parents are required to submit a new physical when registering for high school.  However, high school sports camps require a copy of the student’s physical.  If you think your student will participate in a high school summer sport camp and you will need a copy of their physical, please request it from our office by June 3rd.
