Class of 2022 Year End Celebration on Thurs, June 23rd @ 4pm
Hello GDHS Grade 12 Families
With our Year End Celebration fast approaching we wanted to ensure you have all the necessary details. Please see below for specifics. We look forward to celebrating with you and your student(s)!
Please note: Graduates must arrive no later than 3:15pm.
Location & Time:
The ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 23rd at Alcott Arena inside Mold-Masters Sportsplex, 221 Guelph St, Halton Hills, ON, L7G 4A8.
Graduates must arrive no later than 3:15pm. Graduates must head directly to Pad B to collect their graduation cap and gown and begin marshaling in alphabetical order. Parents and guests will be asked to wait outside of Alcott Arena until doors open (approximately 3:30pm).
Parents/Guests and tickets:
All attendees require a ticket for entry to Alcott Arena. Parents/guests must have claimed their free tickets using the Cashless system, and must show a downloaded copy of the tickets on their cell phone, or a printed paper copy, to the greeters at the front door to enter.
Alcott Arena does not have air conditioning, and its ice making facilities are shut off during the summer months. We strongly encourage all those attending to dress for a warm summer’s evening (short sleeves, shorts, if desired).
Parking is available on the grounds of the Mold-Masters Sportsplex, including the parking lot directly in front of the main doors and the parking lots at the rear of the building. *NOTE: Cars parked in the adjacent plaza (Food Basics plaza) may be towed.
When students arrive at Pad B at Mold-Masters Sportsplex, they will collect their cap and gown. These are free to keep so that families may take graduation photos throughout the evening. Caps and gowns do not need to be returned to the school.
Items For Purchase:
Flowers will be available for purchase from The Commencement Group, a third party vendor. You may wish to pre-purchase flowers using their website to secure specific colours and sizing, or you can purchase in person at the ceremony.
The Mold-Masters snack bar will be open to purchase refreshments and snacks.
Weekly Parent Newsletter - Friday, June 17th
Hello GDHS Families,
The other day, our admin team was reflecting on how many changes we experienced this year. You will recall that in September, we were doing two classes a day, alternating weeks. This seems like a lifetime ago, and it speaks to just how busy things have been since we returned to a 4 period day late in Semester 1. June is always a time for reflection and celebration, especially given what we have worked through this year. Please take a moment to acknowledge the hard work that students and teachers have done, and the many achievements we have to celebrate.
Bus Schedule during Final Evaluations
The bus schedule will remain the same during the Final Evaluation days and Final Evaluation Return Day (June 28).
Final Evaluation Attendance
Students are still expected to attend all scheduled Final Evaluations during our Final Evaluation Block. Should a student be absent for a scheduled Final Evaluation, teachers will email parents that evening to inform them.
Final Evaluation (Exam) Return Day: Tuesday, June 28
Final Evaluation Return Day is Tuesday, June 28th. This is a shortened day. Schedule below:
Period 1: 9:00 - 9:35
