MOVING ON CEREMONY!

Plans for the grade 8 graduation are underway!

Here are some of the confirmed details!

CEREMONY:
DATE: Tuesday June 27
TIME: Grad ceremony 5:30-6:30    Grad reception at the school 6:30-7:00


Cake and drinks will be provided at the receptions.

AFTER THE CEREMONY
Any after ceremony events are going to be determined by parents/students and are organized and supervised by the parents involved.

So there will be more information forthcoming about those events once the students/parents nail down the specific details!

From what I'm hearing, two boys are interested in creating after events. The will be making invitations to hand out to all the grade 8's, hopefully soon. These invites should have all the details. 

I will help pass out the invites but am not involved in any after event planning so any further questions will have to go to whoever is planning those events (and hopefully most questions will be answered on the invitation, once you receive them). 

As regards any after events, parents will be responsible for picking up/dropping off their children to any after event. (In other words, no school bus).

THEME
The students voted on the theme for grad and it is Hollywood at Night! The grad art team is starting now to create the artwork for this event. They are very dedicated and organized and it's going to look fantastic! 

VALEDICTORIANS
Valedictorians have been determined by voting and there was a tie so there are 3: congratulations Kendra, Cy, and Ellie! They have started speech writing. 

MEDIA
The Baby photos slide show is getting underway. Students, bring in your baby and toddler photo ASAP!

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns!

Thanks
Mrs J
