Delta North Dry Grad 2023

Graduating classes of Burnsview, Delview, North Delta, and Sands

North Delta Recreation Centre

11:30pm Friday, May 26, 2023 – 5:00am Saturday, May 27, 2023

To support and celebrate the success of the 2023 Delta North graduating classes in the safest way possible, a volunteer committee of parents is planning our annual Dry Grad event.

Delta North Dry Grad combines the graduating classes from Burnsview, Delview, North Delta, and Sands schools. The Dry Grad event happens after the school graduation dinner banquets, which are planned separately.

Dry Grad starts at 11:30pm on Friday, May 26, 2023 at the North Delta Recreation Centre. The graduates will enjoy a night of fun, food, prizes, and entertainment in the company of their graduating friends. Dry Grad allows the graduates to celebrate in a safe and fun environment, with the activities going until the wee hours of the morning! The event ends at 5:00am on Saturday, May 27, 2023.

TICKETS

Tickets will be sold during lunch in the foyer of each school, starting in March 2023. Dates to be updated soon!

Tickets can be purchased by cash or cheque payable to “Delta North Dry Grad Committee”

PRIZES

The Dry Grad Prize Committee is asking our school families, their friends/family members, and the community for merchandise, gift certificates, and/or monetary contributions to reward our well-deserving graduates with door and raffle prizes. To contribute, please contact: drygrad.deltanorthend@gmail.com

VOLUNTEERS

The Delta North Dry Grad is run completely by community volunteers – typically parents of high school students. Without our volunteers, there would be no Dry Grad event.

We require 75+ volunteers to run Dry Grad. This includes everything from helping with decorations, check-in, food, security, and more. During the event, shifts are 3-4 hours but many people choose to volunteer for the entire evening – it’s great to see the grads having fun! We welcome parents/guardians from all four schools to volunteer and especially encourage those with students in grades 8 – 11 to participate. This allows parents of graduates to focus on enjoying the graduation activities. Sign-up for volunteer shifts at the event will open after Spring Break – more information to come!

We also welcome volunteers to join the Dry Grad committee – we meet once a month at 7pm in the Delview library to discuss planning and preparation. Meeting dates:

19 Oct 2022 – 16 Nov 2022 – 18 Jan 2023 – 15 Feb 2023 – 19 Apr 2023 – 03 May 2023 – 17 May 2023
