Dry Grad (Prom) Event

Friday, June 16 is the HSS Commencement Ceremony

Saturday, June 17 is the HSS Dry Grad (Prom) Celebration 


Class of 2023 Prom: Grads planning to attend prom should have returned completed registration packages and payment at this point for the “Old Hollywood” themed event that will include dinner and entertainment at the Railway Museum of British Columbia. This will be a fun way to mark the achievement of graduation and all grads deserve to celebrate the milestone together.  


Grads will say goodbye to family and friends and depart the Time to Shine event (3:30-5:30) at Howe Sound Secondary on Saturday the 17th and travel by bus to the prom venue. The big event begins at 5:30 and runs until midnight. Any questions regarding prom can be directed to  [email protected] 


Prom Volunteers Interested volunteers with time to help set-up during the day Thursday or Friday are invited to email [email protected] 


Prom Sponsors Grad is a time for our whole community to shine, and our sponsors have been absolutely brilliant. Sponsors will be recognized for their generosity at the Time to Shine event and in the Squamish Chief. Join the Class of 2023 in saying thank you to these supporters who make the prom celebration possible!
