Message from Mrs. Y and LCHS Staff Grad Facilitators
Dear Graduating Class of 2020 and Parents/Guardians;
Based on the results of our Grad 2020 Survey, LCHS Grad 2020 will be postponed until the fall. Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond!
We heard from slightly less than half of the Grad class, and from many of your parents/guardians, so currently we have just over 100 grads who responded to the survey and were in favor of a fall graduation event. This means we are likely going to have to do a variation of our traditional event due to items such as availability of a venue, possibility of smaller numbers and directives from Alberta Health Services as the pandemic situation changes in our community, etc.. LCHS staff will be meeting with the members of the student Grad Committee in the coming days to start working on the details of the 2020 Graduation event.
Over the next few weeks, please keep sending your photographs and slides for the Graduation presentation by following the instructions in the Grad Folder How To. You are also welcome to borrow a gown and cap for grad photos this spring by contacting the LCHS main office at 403.782.6615 to find out more details and/or arrange for this.
We are looking forward to providing you a positive experience and celebrating your achievements with you in the fall.
LCHS Staff Grad Facilitators
Photographs and Grad Gowns
There have been inquiries about borrowing a cap, gown and stole from the school for family pictures. If you would like to do so please call the school at 403-782-6615 and the office staff will assist you with regard to a pick-up time of these items. We have a limited number of gowns out of storage, so please phone ahead. Gowns are to be returned within three days, and will be washed between uses.
You will need to bring a $100.00 cash deposit in a plastic/ziploc bag that will be refunded to you when the gown and stole are returned.
You will also receive a cap and tassel, which are yours to keep. We'll make arrangements to get caps to all grads eventually; right now it's just for the ones who are borrowing a gown.
LCHS staff and the Grad committee are compiling two slideshows to use at our Graduation ceremony, whether that is online or in the fall.
Grads, please follow the instructions in the Grad Folder How To and share some of your future goals and childhood photos. These slides will be shown to all our guests at Grad. Please make sure that everything that you add is school-appropriate!
You can add to your slide - your name, a picture of you and what your future goal is. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ms. Hayduk by phone or email, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Ms. Arnold is looking for photos for the yearbook grad pages. She is hoping that you might be able to provide her with a picture of what you would have worn to our Grad banquet in June. She promises not to share these photos - the yearbook does not come out till late 2020. If you have questions for her she can be reached by telephone or email, email@example.com
Destiny Gillespie is creating the “Lambs to RAMS” Powerpoint. Please put these pictures of you and your friends in the Young RAMS Photos. These could be baby pictures to field trips in Elementary to Mock Rock at the Jr. High, etc.. Again, if you have any questions you can contact Ms. Hayduk or Ms. Arnold.
Jostens was here on November 14-15 for grads to see and order grad rings. This year students who order class rings will get a free fitted jacket... wow.
