Grade 9 Farewell Celebration and Reception
Dear Parents/Guardians and Grade Nine Students,
The message below is to provide you with information about the Grade Nine Farewell Celebration & Reception that is being planned for our students.
The Farewell Ceremony will be held at the Sherwood Park Alliance Church (1011 Clover Bar Road) on Friday, June 9 beginning at 5:00 p.m. The doors to the sanctuary will open at 4:30 p.m. and there will be opportunities for families to take photographs before and after the ceremony. By holding the ceremony at Sherwood Park Alliance Church, students are not limited in the number of guests they choose to invite.
The ceremony will include short speeches from students, staff, and invited guests. There will also be a presentation of completion certificate to each student, a video of all students as well as musical performances by students.
A short rehearsal for students will be held at Sherwood Heights on the morning of June 9.
Following the Ceremony:
A Farewell Reception will be held for grade 9 Sherwood Heights students only at Sherwood Heights Junior High School – 241 Fir Street. The event will be held from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. During the reception, the students will enjoy a DJ dance, photo booth, pizza, pop & water.
Please have your child RSVP by May 18 for the reception using the link. We do need parent volunteers for the reception. Your child can input your name in the RSVP link and we will contact you at a later date: https://forms.gle/77qYxNgN2qbss1BS7
Students who do not RSVP, will not be admitted. Entry to the event will be closed at 7:30 p.m. and there are no in-and-out privileges. Please note that this is still a school sanctioned event and as such, all school rules still apply.
Although we do not have a specific dress code for the celebration, students are encouraged to dress for a semi-formal junior high event. We discourage students and families from purchasing expensive attire or accessories.
We like our ceremony to be as student centered as possible. Students wishing to audition for various roles (masters of ceremony, singing of anthem, musical performances) should listen to the daily announcements for audition dates and times.
Please feel free to contact the office at 780-467-5930 should you have any questions about the events.
