Dry Grad 2018

Dry Grad 2018 Info:

What is Dry Grad? According to ICBC, "four youths are killed and 1,140 injured in crashes during Grad season in May and June every year in BC." Dry Grad is an initiative to reduce these statistics and is a party organized by parents and student volunteers for grads to attend after the graduation dinner/dance (Prom). It is "dry," meaning no alcohol or drugs are allowed. This is a safe and inclusive alternative to private after-grad celebrations. Safety is especially pertinent as we hear about drug overdoses regularly on the news.

 The event is fully planned, supervised and sponsored by parents of the graduation class. The event has several committees (decoration, food, entertainment, facilities, security ect.). Any parents wishing to volunteer can contact Mrs. DeVito at

 The first Dry Grad meeting will take place directly after the Grad Parent Information Meeting, beginning at 6pm, Oct. 5th 2017 in the PSS library.  We encourage all parents to attend both meetings.
