Grad Ceremonies - June 15

The 56th Graduation Commencement ceremonies will be held at the Edmonton Convention Centre (formerly Shaw Conference Centre) on Saturday, June 15th, 2019. The ceremony starts at 9:45. You should start arriving around 8:30 am. Doors open at 9:00. The ceremony lasts about 2 1/2 - 3 hours depending on the number of grads. An invitation will be mailed out to each household. There is no limit to how many guests that can attend the ceremonies.

Graduation Banquet and Dance - June 15

The Grad Banquet and Dance will be held at the Edmonton Convention Centre on Saturday, June 15, 2019. All guests should be there by at least 4:30 p.m. as the evening events begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. The dance will be held following the banquet. The order of events include: toasts and speeches, grad song, dinner, historians, slide show, grand march and then the dance.


The banquet ticket sales will take place May 21-27 in the PK cafeteria after school.

There is a policy at the Edmonton Convention Centre: Table sittings must be groups of 8, 9, 10 or 11 (tables cannot be fewer than 8 people). If you have fewer than 8 guests you will be seated with another family.


This is how the ticket sales will be organized:

On May 15th, students will be randomly assigned numbers between #1 to #360. The list will be posted on the office window. Students will purchase their tickets after school in the cafeteria on a specific date assigned to their random numbers as follows:

Tuesday, May 21 #1 to 100

Wednesday, May 22 #101 to 200

Thursday, May 23 #201 to 300, and

Friday, May 24 #300 and up

Monday, May 27 ticket sales are for:

- anyone who was unable to purchase tickets on their assigned day

- those who want to purchase additional tickets at their table

- those who want more than one table of tickets, and want the tables to be near each other

- grad friendship groups that want to group their tables near each other 


The ticket price for the graduation banquet is $90.00 per ticket. We have never had to limit the number of tickets purchased, but initial sales will be limited to one table per grad (10 or 11) until everyone has had a chance to purchase tickets. Students requiring more than one table of tickets can purchase additional tickets beginning on Monday, May 27. All school fees must be paid before grad banquet tickets can be purchased, and any overdue texts must be returned and/or paid. Tickets may be paid by using VISA, MasterCard, Interac, cash or by cheque. When paying by debit or credit, an additional surcharge of 2.4% is charged. Food allergy information will be taken at the time of ticket sales, so please be sure your grad knows this information about your guests. The main course is "chicken". Vegetarian meals are available but must be requested at the time of the ticket purchase. 


There are NO refunds after tickets are purchased, so, please be certain of your numbers. If you are unsure if a guest can attend, let Ms. Solomon know at the time of ticket purchase and she can 'save' a spot at that table for purchasing later on.

If you have special circumstances requiring a split table, students can discuss this with Ms. Solomon when purchasing their tickets.
