Congratulations to all 2017 Graduates!  Please read for important Grad and Prom night information.  If you have Graduation questions, please see Ms. Crozier in the main office. As the big day approaches, check back more frequently for updates through daily announcements and the school website

Grad Fees: The fee includes: two grad poses for the yearbook and composite, rental of LCLC, rental of lighting equipment, printing of invitations and programs, decorations, public reception, gift for the keynote speaker, photographer (each Grad will receive 1 free 5” x 7” of the grad receiving his/her diploma from the principal and a DVD of the Ceremony) and a keeper Grad Gown and Cap.  Any excess funds will be used to subsidize the cost of the Prom and Safe Grad.  Please make your cheque payable to Park View Education Centre. Please settle any outstanding Grad Fees ($70) on or before April 27, 2017.

Valedictory & Salutatory Addresses:
 The Valedictory address (a more formal, academic, leaving speech on behalf of the class) and the Salutatory address (a more tongue-in-cheek, trip down memory lane speech on behalf of the class) address is presented by grade 12 students on graduation night. Auditions will be held in late May. Sign up sheet will be posted in the main office starting on April 24th. 

Grad Invitations: Grads are issued four souvenir invitations each which will be available in June.  Those requesting additional invitations should see Ms. Crozier.  Graduation will be at the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre, 7:30 pm on Wednesday June 28, 2017.  There is NO RESERVED seating for guests at graduation.  Guests will be seated on a first come – first served basis.   EXCEPTION – Those graduates whose guests require wheel chair space should see Ms. Crozier as soon as possible.  We will reserve a space for the wheel chair and one (1) additional space for a person accompanying the individual in the wheel chair.


Graduates are reminded that this is a formal occasion.  Please note the following:
1.  No one will be allowed to gather at the front of the stage to take pictures during the handing out of the diplomas.  Parents will be asked to take pictures AFTER the ceremony.  A photographer has been hired and will provide, free of charge, each grad with one (1) 5 X 7 picture of the grad receiving his/her diploma.

2.  Out of respect for your fellow graduates, grads are asked to please return to your seats after receiving your diploma, and wait until all grads have crossed the stage.  We should be able to move this part of the ceremony along fairly quickly so that the wait should not unduly inconvenience anyone.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Grad Gown pick-up.  Please note the following: Please pick up your Grad Gown at the school between 9:30 am and 11:30 am on June 28. These are yours to keep after the ceremony.

Grad Information Session: Our one and only grad information session will be held on June 14 after the Student Awards Ceremony. You will receive all the final details for the ceremony at this time.

Grad Breakfast: A light Grad Breakfast will be June 14 in the cafeteria following the Practice Information Session Period 2.
