Last week we worked to record the Garibaldi Secondary School Leaving Ceremony. We will post the ceremony to a secure district server during the afternoon of June 11 2020. To communicate this release we will post the link to the parent portal (a Gr 12 target message), send an app message and post the link to the GSS website at this weblink: https://secondary.sd42.ca/gss/2020-school-leaving-ceremonies/
I understand several families are planning to get together to watch this event. I hope you have a positive celebratory evening. The Grad Caps and Lawn Signs are confirmed to be delivered to GSS in the next few days. Please feel free to come to the school this Wednesday and Thursday, June 10 – 11, between 11 and 2 to pick up these two items, we hope these gifts add to any planned event . Grads will need to return for Grad Folios, and other gifts later in June.
I look forward to a time when we can meet together at an in person “Commencement Event”. Please see this post for more information: https://secondary.sd42.ca/gss/planning-an-inclusive-commencement-event-grad-2020/ .
It is important to note that Yearbooks, Grad Folios, and Grad gift can be picked up in the GSS Café June 22 and 23 2020, in combination with locker clean out. While the school office will remain open for the first week of July, the grad parents committed to distributing gifts June 22 and 23 only. Please respect this efforts to make grad 2020 special. Details to support a safe plan for this process, including social distancing, will be distributed in a separate Parent Portal Message / Website post, to all Gr 12 families. This Portal message will be posted to: https://secondary.sd42.ca/gss/year-end-at-gss-resource-return
I hope you enjoy the recorded “School Leaving Ceremony”. We are all proud of the Garibaldi Graduates of 2020!
