We are here :))))) Have amazing day with your graduate, just a reminder 6:00 stage in park starts and once it does start all umbrellas need to be down:))) ♥️🎓♥️🎓♥️🎓


Parents for TOMORROW please tell your grad cars and vehicles enter the park in between the water park and the Den (shiroi house) there is a gate that will be open and there will be people to guide them on where and how to park:)) that happens at 3:00-4:45, then the Grads and escorts are asked to go line up:)) the cars can stay at the park for the promenade on the park stage but will need to be moved after. No vehicles in the park overnight♥️


ONE MORE SLEEP!!!!!! tomorrow reminder Craig’s table is donating a burger and a water to each graduate:) there location will be in the parking lot of arena 🙂 The general public can purchase burgers and water as well. Please support Craig’s table as they have been very generous with feeding our grads:) if grads want a burger please come at 4:00-4:45 to eat then you are asked to be at the arena for Grad gown dressing at 5:00.

4:00 - 5:30 Burgers and water donated from Craig’s table
5:00 Grads get into gowns and get into order:)

5:00 Doors open at West Fraser Centre for ticket holders, you must have a ticket to enter.

5:50 audience should be in their seats

6:00 Grads of 2023 walk into Arena 1 Weat Fraser Centre

****************************************************Just a note that you will see empty seats in the stands of the arena because we have floor seating:) The capacity number in the arena is bleacher seats. But we put floor seating in:) Everyone will have a great view for the ceremony. ****************************************************



Grad rehearsal tomorrow at West Fraser Centre at 3:00 pm - just for grads and casual. Don’t be late! This is getting REAL!!!


Everyone needs to know that the amount of Grad tickets is still sitting at 6 tickets per graduate. Friday night 6 tickets and Saturday we are still hopeful to have it in the Park. Saturday then as many people can come as they want.

Just a REMINDER this is not a school decision, the arena with floor seating only holds to fire marshal regulations. We can’t over exceed the fire marshal or grad will get shut down. One option is if you have siblings and it’s a decision siblings over grandparents or other family you could send siblings to the movie theatre for movie at 6:15 then when movie is over we will be finishing and they are their outside for pictures ♥️♥️♥️

Please understand the school is getting a lot of phone calls and SOME calls are very disrespectful😞 the staff can’t change this policy of the fire Marshall. Please please please be respectful ♥️♥️♥️


Parents please make sure school has this info if your grad didn’t have it on their sheet:) 🎓♥️🎓♥️
