SAFE GRAD 2015 – Now seeking volunteers!

 On April 17th, 2015, the grade 12 students of Gonzaga will be holding their prom and Safe Grad.  The prom begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel where students will enjoy a meet and greet followed by a dinner and dance. After a quick change of clothing at home, students will come to the school at midnight for the start of the Safe Grad festivities.


Safe Grad provides students with a fun-filled, drug and alcohol free night of celebrations and offers a safe and inclusive atmosphere for every student to enjoy a full night of graduation festivities with their classmates. The school is amazingly decorated and we offer plenty of food and fun activities all night long.


Safe Grad is organized by parent volunteers with the support of the school administration. In order for it to be successful, we rely on the help of our dedicated parent community. Parents from every grade level are encouraged to get involved, however it is the help of grade 10 and 11 parents that is particularly important as we get closer to Grad Day. This idea of paying it forward lets the parents of grade 12 students get involved with Safe Grad preparations in the weeks and months leading up to the big event, but it also relieves them of these responsibilities on Grad Day so that they are free to partake in the celebrations with their own children.


We will be looking for many volunteers to help with the following tasks:
