Hello Grad Parents/Guardians,


Prom is just over two weeks away now! There's not a lot to cover off on but please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

With a few shifts left to fill, please see the Volunteer Sign Up Sheet - click HERE to sign up for prom set up, decorating, day of duties and cleanup.  ('Security" is one area where we will definitely need many volunteers!)

Reminder: EVERYONE, PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED DOCUMENT. It includes some important drop-off information in it as well as important information regarding drugs and alcohol - please ensure that your grad is aware that this is a drug and alcohol free event. There will be a zero bag policy but clutch purses and shoes will be allowed.

Volunteers can expect to receive an email with more information a couple of days before the event. Thank you in advance for helping to make this a special night for our grads. 

We have had a change in venue for the prom. We will now be holding the event in the arena at Arbutus Meadows (1515 Island Hwy E, Nanoose Bay). Same day, same time, new location. See the below poster for the detailed timeline of events:​
