They celebrated and were celebrated on Saturday, May 23 with a Cap and Gown Ceremony in the morning, then a photo session followed by a dinner and formal ceremonies in the afternoon and evening. The students looked amazing dressed in formal gowns and suits, looking Oscar ready for their theme of 'Night at the Movies'.

During his address Mr. Petluk led the students on stage through a relaxation exercise that he had likely used in his class before. This time he had them close their eyes and visualize fond happy and successful moments throughout their education, starting from kindergarten on to junior high, and then high school. He asked them to visualize the people who cared for them, and surrounded them, and helped them to succeed in preparing for this day. "Finally, imagine you are in a room. The room is packed with people that cared for you over the years. This room is jammed with the people who have loved you and supported you over all of the years. This room is absolutely crammed with the people that have helped you to get to ready to take the leap out of high school and into the wide open world. And right now the people in this room are on their feet and they're cheering for you." Although Petluk did continue to speak inviting the students to open their eyes his words were drowned out by the cheering from the audience, and many of the students were visibly moved. He ended by thanking the students for choosing to invite him. "I want you to go out there and make us all proud."

After the formal ceremonies, Recessional, and Walk About there was a dance, and more than a few tears and laughs were shared, particularly during the parents dance.
