Dear Graduates, Parents & Guardians:

We are looking forward to our Grade 12 Commencement on Thursday, June 28th, 7:00pm at Nelson High School.

All Grade 12 students participating in the ceremony must arrive by 6:15 p.m. and report to the second floor (Rooms 202-213) to pick up their gown. 

Parents/Guests: Please remember to bring your tickets with you as they are required for entry.  Due to the large number of Graduates this year, we are providing additional seating in the Auditorium with a live broadcast of the ceremony to accommodate all guests.

After the ceremony, students will return to their assigned room to return their gown and pick up any other personal belongings. We recommend that students do not leave valuables (ie. money, cell phones) in the gown rooms. 

We look forward to seeing you on the 28th and sharing in this milestone.

June is fast approaching. The Nelson Commencement Ceremony is being held on Thursday, June 28 at 7:00pm in the gymnasium. Here are a few reminders for all our graduates.

Invitations to the event will be mailed in early May. The invitation will include 2 tickets for guests (tickets not required for graduates), provided that your student has met the following:

(1) rented his/her gown ($25) and

(2) has submitted his/her Community Service Hours to the Student Services Department.

The gown can be rented via School Cash Online, or by cash/cheque in the main office. The cut-off date for gown rentals is Monday, April 23rd. There will be no refunds for Gowns after June 18th, 2018.

NOTE: Tickets will not be included with the invitation if the above 2 criteria have not been met, so please ensure your student has done so prior to May.

There will be a limited number of extra tickets available once the initial 2 per student have been issued. These tickets will be issued beginning June 1st, through Mrs. Thomblison in the main office.

Thank you.
