All grads, who have signed up to participate in the Drive Through Graduation on June 20th, have been emailed their time slot and instructions. (Use the CHROME browser to access your GHSD email, and check the SPAM folder) 

There are 150+ graduates participating in this event! Therefore, each grad has only 2 minutes to exit their vehicle, cross the stage, pick-up their lawn sign and document package, then depart in their vehicle. 

Please respect the fact that we have a time line and follow the guidelines emailed out.

Below is the information sent to each graduate.

You must have an assigned time if you would like to participate.  

 

Congratulations Graduates!  It’s finally happening, albeit a little different, it’s time to walk to the stage!

 

You, and 14 of your classmates, have been assigned a 30 minute time slot on Saturday June 20th, 2020. We are excited to see all graduates cross the stage so, in order to ensure that you all have an equal opportunity to experience this milestone, we have a tight timeline we must stick to. 

You will have 2 minutes to do the following:

 
  1. Exit your vehicle (your family needs to remain in the vehicle please)
  2. Walk the red carpet
  3. Cross the stage
  4. Pose for a Lifetouch picture with “Mr. Larson” (please refrain from touching him)
  5. Pick up your lawn sign and official documents while posing for a 2nd Lifetouch picture
  6. Drop your grad gown in the bins provided (only if you have signed out a gown and are planning to wear it, you don’t have to)
  7. Return to your vehicles and depart 
 

How is this all going to happen you ask? Here is the plan:

 
  • We are going to be using the Civic Centre Parking Lot as our car line-up/staging area so head there
    • Please arrive in your vehicle no more than 5 minutes before your 30 min time slot, we need to watch our numbers 
  • You will be assigned a place to park
    • Please remain in your vehicle while awaiting for your turn
    • There are no public washroom facilities so plan ahead!
  • When it is your turn you will be asked to pull up to the podium
  • You will get out of your vehicle and Mr. Regnier will ask you your name (let him know how to pronounce it please)
  • As you walk the red carpet your name will be announced over the speakers
  • Your vehicle will follow your progress through the front parking lot and into the bus pullouts along the front of the school 
  • The stage will be set up on the main sidewalk leading up to the school
    • The stage will be available for family/friend photographs from 5-8pm
      • If you would like to take your own photos, please come back later to do so
  • Cross the stage and pose with “Mr. Larson” for a picture taken by Lifetouch Photography
    • Please don’t touch “Mr. Larson”, or any other staff members 
  • Teachers will be around to cheer and guide you through the process
  • Lawn signs and document packages will be on the front lawn around the SHS sign 
    • Pick up your lawn sign, they will be in alphabetical order and staff will help you find yours
    • Pose for another Lifetouch picture
  • Towards the student parking lot you will see the Grad Gown Drop Off bins
    • Deposit your gown (if you are wearing it) in the correct bin
    • If you would like to keep your gown for photos they need to be returned to the school on Monday the 22nd.
  • You vehicle should now be at the end of the bus pull out area ready to pick you up
    • Please exit the area and refrain from congregating in the parking lots or nearby properties
 

The Graduation Recognition Presentation will be released on Youtube, the SHS Website, and the SHS Facebook page at 6:30pm. It contains speeches, photos, write-ups, and 2 special tributes from former, and now famous, SHS alumni. Take a moment to watch with your family and friends, you earned it. 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday June 3rd Graduates will receive, via GHSD email, a Graduation Drive Through form to complete. Please read through the form, complete, and submit it ASAP. Grads will, within 1 week, receive a time slot for June 20th upon receipt and completion of the form.

 

 

A message from Mr. Larson:

Graduates, it has been a busy few weeks here at Strathmore High School as we have been discussing and deciding the best way to go forward with a recognition ceremony for all of you.  
I hope that you all are doing well and that you are getting excited and prepared for the next phase, post high school graduation!  I'm sure many of you are uncertain what that next phase is going to look like.  Don't worry we all are in that boat together.
The link below is a description of the plan for the graduation ceremony that will be here at the school on June 20th, it is a Drive Through ceremony at the front of the school.  
Please review the link attached for a better understanding of what the day will be like and for any other important information that you may have missed surrounding this event.

Grad 2020 Update - May 22

Efforts are currently under way to have some form of a graduation celebration for the class of 2020.  As we are certain you are aware, we are limited with what we are able to do as a result of the guidelines put forward by Alberta Health Services.

We are currently planning to have an event for June 20th that would include a drive-through recognition for the graduates, followed by an on-line release of a Grad Recognition Presentation. 

We hope to have all details for this event announced before the end of next week.  We will email these details out next week, and have them posted on all of our social media sites.

 

Link to Mr. Larson's Update Letter

We have extended the deadline until May 25th

1) Fill out the Google Form emailed to your GHSD address 
2) A $40.00 refundable deposit will be added to your school cash online account

4) Pick up the gown at SHS.  They will be outside the Cosmo room . If the deposit hasn't been paid, you won't be allowed to take a gown. Might be a good time to return outstanding textbooks and pay overdue fees as well.

Notes:  
  • When you return the gown, the $40.00 deposit will be returned to you via the online credit card
  • Do not wash the gowns before returning them
  • If you do not return the gown, the $40.00 will not be refunded and you will owe an additional $60.00 to cover the replacement cost.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE return the gowns promptly.  If you are done with the gown before June 01 you can drop it off at SHS.  There will be a collection bin outside the Cosmo room.

 

Grade 12’s please check your email to find information regarding a Grad Parade on May 30th, that is being organized by the Parent Planning Committee and the Town of Strathmore. Please read the safe practice expectations regarding social distancing and sign and return the permission form, if you are planning to participate. Please contact strathmoregrad2020@gmail.com if you have any further questions. 

 

Strathmore Grad Parade Information Letter 

 

We encourage all students to make sure that your graduation fees have been paid.  We are currently planning a number of events to recognize the class of 2020 in the coming weeks, and there will certainly be costs associated with these initiatives.  As well, there is still the potential to have a recognition ceremony in the fall that will also have some cost.  If funds are not fully used after the fall event then a refund would be issued at that time. We understand that there may be some students who are unable to attend in the fall so we are doing our best given the situation and government guidelines to ensure they are recognized in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
