Good afternoon parents, guardians and grade 12 students

Welcome to the last month of grade 12.  Very exciting!  Although this year has certainly been “different” for obvious reasons, I am very happy with the number of fun grad activities that we are being able to organize.  A big thank you to the grad parent committee, the student grad committee and the teacher sponsors for all their work.

The purpose of this email is to let you know what the grad activities are and what is required on the part of the grads and grad families.

  1. Friday June 11th--Drive-In at Mary Winspear.  Arrive by 9:30 pm. Movie starts at 10 pm.  50 car limit (grads only).  Spots MUST be reserved by registration at this link.  Only one registration is required per car.  Up to 4 students per car are allowed (grads only).  Registration link includes all the regulations which must be followed.  This is a parent sponsored event.  Huge thanks to Mary Winspear for all their support. There is no cost for this event. Grads can pick up free treat bags at school before they leave on Friday.

Parade. Maps and parade regulations will be handed out to cars.

**let Ms. Chicanot know if you would like to participate in the car parade but don’t have a car to ride in.  We have spots available in staff vehicles.

  1. Grad slideshow:  Students were asked to submit current and baby photos for the grad slideshow.  Just over ½ of the students have done so.  Students can find the slideshow “assignment” on the google classroom or they can email the photos directly to me  If photos are received this weekend we can include them in the slideshow otherwise they will be left out.

We have a fantastic group of grads this year and we are all looking forward to marking this significant milestone in their lives.

If you have any questions please call the Parkland office.
