We would like all of our Grade 12 students to participate in these events. Students, however, must meet some basic expectations to be eligible to participate. Our expectations include:


·            attend all of their classes regularly and on time

·            follow ROARS (our School Code of Conduct)

·            address outstanding grad fees of $100 for Ceremony and $110 for Dinner Dance (optional) by May 15 deadline


We encourage you to have a discussion with your child about these expectations. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the members of the graduating class of 2024 and I have appreciated the conversations and feedback that I have had from you, their families. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our expectations for your child, please contact me at 604-713-8233. Thank you for your support in making these last few months of grade 12 a successful and enjoyable experience for your child.



Kind regards,




Mr. J. Lauzon Principal
