2018 GRADUATION BANQUET & CEREMONIES!
Thursday, November 2, 2017
Following is information regarding our plans for Grad 2018, which will be held Friday, May 25th at the Delburne Community Hall.
ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE AT THE HALL AT 4:45 FOR THE GROUP PHOTO.
The Banquet commences at 5:30 pm. The Grad Fee pays for the students’ meals. Cost for parents/guardians is $20 each. The banquet is for grade twelve students, their parents/guardians and Delburne School staff.
The Exercises will begin at 7:30 pm. Because of fire regulations, we must restrict the number of guests at the exercises, therefore each grad will be issued sixteen guest tickets. We are aware how difficult it is to limit guests because so many friends and relatives wish to share the achievements of our young people, however, we cannot overcrowd the hall.
We will attempt to reserve the first rows at the exercises for parents and grandparents only so please ask your guests to cooperate in this seating plan.
We will have a rehearsal at the hall on Wednesday, May 23th at 12:30 pm. This is for students only-hopefully they can give their parents instructions for grad night. This is important to attend. We will be decorating the hall after rehearsal.
Finally, we need parents to help with the clean up after the dance. All decorations must be dismantled and taken to the school that night. Parents may take personal decorations such as baby pictures home.
If you have any questions or concerns contact the school at 403-749-3838.

Hello Grads and Parents,
This year we have changed the date of the DCS sanctioned grad fundraiser to December 8th, 2017. Preparations for graduation will begin in earnest. We have met with our grads today to discuss fundraising for the big event. Our fundraising will consist of a Chili, Bun & Dessert dinner with an Alumni Hockey Game, Silent Auction, Raffle Table, Puck Chuck and 50/50 draw. If all students participate in this fundraiser and sell their tickets, it will be the only fundraising we will have to do, as the grad fundraiser has been quite successful in previous years.
What you need to know:
- Every student is expected to attend this event, and sign up for jobs before and during the event.
- Students will be expected to help with preparations the night before and the day of the event.
- Every student will be asked to sell tickets.
- Every student will be asked to try to get donations for our Silent Auction/Raffle Table. Cash donations are very helpful as well!
- If you sell 8 tickets… your ticket will be taken care of. If you do not think you can sell all of your tickets to your friends and family, start asking teachers and other school staff.
Donations for the Silent Auction/Raffle Table should be delivered to Robin Ritchie, Silent Auction Coordinator. Keep track of who the donations are from, so we can acknowledge the donors.
Money for tickets can be given to Mrs. Smith
We are looking forward to another successful fundraising event. Remember this is your grad, so it is your job to make this successful. We are here to organize and help!
Mrs. Smith and Ms. Ritchie
