Each graduate will be able to have seven guests besides themselves, and each group of eight will be seated at their own picnic table.

Two students will open with O Canada, and the exercises will follow, including the presentation of attendance scrolls to each student, and a parent tribute will be given.

Student Kiera Hillrud will give the valedictory address, and two teachers, Matthew Mickleborough and Darren Brinklow, are the guest speakers for the afternoon.

A class video will be shown on the billboard sign, and after the ceremonies, the graduates will walk up Main Street for the 150 invited guests.

Student awards will not be presented at the ceremonies, but will be presented later, on Friday, June 18.
