GRAD 2018

IMPORTANT GRAD UPDATES – November 6, 2017

Grad Deposits are due by November 24.  Each grad is required to pay the initial grad deposit of $125.00.  Parents are encouraged to pay via the parent portal or cash/cheque can be submitted to the office.  Cheques need to be made out to SRTSS.  Once all the fundraising has been completed in the spring, the final balance will need to be submitted.  Please pay the deposit by Friday, November 24.

Grad Photos – all grad should have signed up for grad photos via the Mountain West website.  Photos will be held the week of November 14 in the school library.  Students are required to be present 10 minutes prior to their time slot.   If you have not signed up yet, please do so.

Grad Hoodies – a grade 12 student has designed the artwork for the 2018 grad hoodie.  An order form will be available at some point next week and we are hoping to have the hoodies here before the holidays.

Grad Write-Ups – Grads must submit their yearbook write up to their English teacher or Mrs. McBay.  Write-ups are due in by November 15.

FUNDRAISING – Over the course of the next few months, we will roll out a variety of ways that students can fundraise for money towards their final balance or towards the general dry grad pot of funds.  The first ones are:

  • Bottle Depot – bring your bottles to the Haney bottle depot and they will give you a receipt instead of cash back. Tell them it’s for SRT Grad 2018, account #909.  Receipts must be submitted to the office with your child’s name clearly marked on the receipt.   These receipts will reduce the amount of the final balance.  This will be ongoing until early spring.
  • Bottle Drive January 2, 2018 @ SRT. More details to follow.
  • Domino’s Pizza Card – Pizza cards are on sale for $10.00 each. Each card has 1 free large 1 topping pizza and 9 two for one coupons.  $2.50 per card will go towards the individual grad balance.  These are a great value and make excellent gifts.  Cards are available from the office.
  • Photo Express – please see the attached notice regarding a professional portrait sitting at Photo Express. The entire sitting fee of $15.00 will come back to SRT dry grad.  Sittings are available until December 17.
  • Poinsettia Fundraiser – attached to this portal you will find an order form for poinsettias. A portion from each sale of a plant will go directly to reducing the amount of the grad’s final balance.  Orders are due back by Monday, November 27 and plants will be available for pick up on Tuesday, December 5.
  • PUB NIGHT Saturday, February 17 @ the Breakaway (Planet Ice). More information regarding ticket sales will go out to families in the coming weeks.
  • Purdy’s – Purdy’s chocolates can be ordered online using the customer code 19188. Parents will be able to put their child’s name attached to the order so that the profit will go directly to reducing their final balance.  The deadline for placing orders online is Monday, November 27.  A flyer with online ordering directions is attached to this portal.  Catalogues are available from the office as well.
  • Plans are underway for a possible pasta night at the school and an art evening. If you have any suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact our grad chair at srtgrad2018@gmail.com
  • Grad CeremonyWednesday, June 20 @ 5:00 p.m. (Hard Rock Vancouver Theatre, Coquitlam). This is a school run event and more information will come out in the next couple of months.
  • A reminder also that assignment #3 for Grad Transitions is due in at the next set of Grad Trans seminars on November 28, 29 and 30. Any questions or concerns regarding Grad Trans can be directed to Mr. Wiens at Ralph_Wiens@sd42.ca
