What about Safe Grad? Grand March?
  • Safe Grad is not a school-sponsored event. Due to underage drinking, the school does not approve of this event and can have no part in promoting or planning of the event. The school name and address cannot be used in any advertisements, donation letters, swag (special apparel for either event) or other forms of communication.
Can the day be extended so that Grad starts later?
  • Unfortunately, due to contracts with different companies, and the fact our sister school John Paul II uses the facility the day before ours, the Grad times must remain the same. Please ensure students have a bigger lunch before Grad starts. Grads are also encouraged to grab a snack before going to Bowes Family Gardens. Please eat before arrival.
How do we get tickets for graduation?  Extra tickets?
  • Tickets will be available in May. Each family will receive 6 complimentary tickets.  The graduate does not require a ticket.
