Commencement

Each year, the MD Commencement event is held at the Velodrome 
Thursday, June 25, 2020
The Grad fee of $65.00 helps to cover the cost of the venue, stage, chair  & sound system rental at the Velodrome, gowns & caps (which students will keep),  the annual Grad Breakfast and other incidentals to put this event together for our graduating class.  The fee is available on School Cash Online - please pay this fee so we can cover the cost of the event.  Thank you!  Order your Commencement Gowns & Caps here.  They will be available for pick-up June 20th - 24th in the Main Office.

Commencement Parking & Marshaling

Again this year, parking is not permitted at the Velodrome, with the exception of guests requiring handicap parking spots.  This year, the Velodrome has made arrangements with the Milton Sports Centre, 605 Santa Maria Blvd, Pool Entrance, to have shuttle buses transporting you and your guests to the Velodrome for our Commencement ceremony.  Shuttle buses will be available prior to the ceremony from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm and afterwards from 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Grads are expected to arrive promptly at 6:15 pm in their gown and cap for marshaling.  Gowns and caps will be available for Grads to pick up from the main office during the exam period.  While students are being marshaled, parents are more than welcome to choose their seats and enjoy some light refreshments before the ceremony begins.  Official diplomas, certificates and the Grad composite (if purchased through Edge Imaging) will be available for parents to pick up prior to the ceremony as parents arrive at the venue.
