Grand March Details
The Grad fee us a charge for each student who participates in grad-related activities to offset the costs. These include the arena rental and decorating, grad photos and a class composite photo, grad cap and gown, diploma cover, etc.
Grad fee for the 2023-2024 year is: $TBD per student and must be paid in full by TBD in order to participate in the graduation ceremonies.
Grads will be measured in the fall and they will be distributed just prior to grad. Once we are ready to start taking measurements we will put this in daily announcements, in the bulletin, and on the TV's within the school. These are to be worn for the ceremony portion of grad and have been purchased for the graduate to keep.
Finishing Touch Society
There is also a service offered through Finishing Touch Society to assist students and families for whom cost of formal wear is restrictive. If you are experiencing financial difficulties and could use some help, please contact The Finishing Touch Grad Society through their facebook page or by email. For applications please see Blythe Mahaney in student services, or email Blythe.Mahaney@gppsd.ab.ca

Safe Grad and Fun Grad
Safe Grad and Fun Grad are optional activities, historically being held on the evening of grand march. Both events are organized and controlled by parent committees. Neither the Grande Prairie Public School District nor Grande Prairie Composite High School endorse either of these activities; they are organized and executed completely by a parent group. There is usually a charge for attending either activity. All safe grad and fun grad details are determined by the parent committees.
Multiple requests have been fielded regarding grad trips. GPCHS has no affiliation whatsoever with this.
