Dry Grad – Planning Info

GRAD 2016-2017

Dry Grad was huge success – thank you to all of the volunteers and helpers – you made the event possible!

Thanks also to our Dry Grad sponsors – without you – the event couldn’t happen!














The Grads have voted and decided to keep all Grad recognition ceremony events on ONE day.  Now the work begins!

Grad Parent Information night was held in the Theatre at 7pm on May 3rd.  Please view the powerpoint for important information about the upcoming Dry Grad event on June 27th.

  • Dry Grad Committee is looking for pictures of Grads as they are beginning to put together a Dry Grad Slide Show (If you missed the yearbook deadline for baby photos, you can still submit it here to be included in the slide show!) Please send all images to: spectrumgrad2017@gmail.com

The Spectrum Dry Grad Parent Committee is currently fundraising for the 6th Annual Dry Grad Celebration to be held on June 27th, 2017.  This parent-led event encourages students to choose a safe, substance-free environment in which to celebrate their graduation.  It will be an unforgettable evening of activities, entertainment and memories for the Spectrum Graduating Class of 2017.  Our event solely relies on a great deal of parent volunteers, fundraising and community support.  The school’s budget does not fund this event.


While the event is partially funded by ticket sales and parent/volunteer led fundraisers, money is also raised through local businesses in our community.  We would like to request your assistance in providing a donation to be used toward funding for the event itself.  Every contribution is greatly appreciated.  Please click here to donate.  Donations can also be brought to the office.

Please read the Dry Grad Committee Fund-Raising Letter 

If you would like more information or have questions regarding our Dry Grad Celebration please contact Tracey Campbell at tlc2014@shaw.ca or Donna Kent at bdrq@shaw.ca.

The Dry Grad Committee will be meeting once a month to organize the event. (With more meeting times closer to year-end)  All meetings will be at 7 pm in the Spectrum Library.
