Hello GILA Students, Parents, and Guardians,

We are getting very excited about the 2017 Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2017!!

We know that one of the challenges of sending your student to boarding school is that not everyone who wants to be in the audience during graduation can be here, and we know that can be very tough!

In an attempt to help everyone experience graduation, we will be streaming live video and audio of this year’s commencement ceremony.  Please share these links with anyone wishing to watch or listen to this year’s graduation.

Seniors, please make sure that those family members and friends who can’t be at graduation know about these links.

Graduation will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24th.

The video stream link is:

The audio only link is:

Thanks everyone.  Have a great day!  Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
