Saturday, May 26, 2018 Graduation Day

Parent Information Meeting Night  - Tuesday, October 10th @ 7 pm in the Strathmore High School Theater.  We strongly suggest that you attend the meeting to have any questions answered. 

Keeping Informed: We encourage all grads to keep informed. Please check the website on a regular basis and sign up for Remind by texting @shs-grad to (819)801-0335.  If you have urgent questions your student cannot answer you are welcome to phone either of the Grad Advisors at the school (934-3135).

Planning -  As Grad advisors, we will be relying on 10 – 15 grade 12 volunteers to form a Grad Planning Committee. They will meet on Wednesdays in Room 202 at lunch. Listen for announcements. All Grade 12’s are welcome to attend!

Activities: As a Grad fee of $20 is charged, there is no fundraising. All activities are done for fun and to add to the memory of Grade 12.

Grad Pictures - Taken by Lifetouch, March 1-9. All students must have their picture taken by Lifetouch so it can be included in the yearbook and composite. Students who want their photos done by another company can simply inform the Lifetouch cameraman and no fee will be charged for the two photos taken. i.e. There is NO charge to have photos taken for yearbook & composite.

Grad Rings - Jostens will be out to the school on December 4th for a preview of the rings and again on Tuesday, December 5 to take ring orders.  Grad rings may still be ordered directly from Jostens online.  Catalagues are avaiable in the Office or Learning Commons.

Grad Hoodies - Students can order their hoodies online.  Click "School Fees" on our website.  Select either hoodie or jacet and pay.  Click on the google form link.  Fill in the google form.   This will allow students to pick a size and write what they want.  Last day to order hoodies is November 20, 2017.

Grad Pow Wow -  A tradition at SHS has been the Grade 12 Pow Wow. If our native students chose to organize one again this year all grads are urged to participate in this colorful salute to our Grads. Please watch for details about this event in the coming months.
