Good afternoon parents and families of our Grade 9 Graduates!

As you have already received information regarding the Farewell Ceremony, this is the information you need to know about the rapidly approaching Celebration!

  1. The celebration will start immediately after the ceremony, June 6, at Sherwood Heights. Front doors will open at 6:30pm and includes a BBQ and Candy bar for students and guests, and a dance for grade 9 students.
  • Tickets are $10 each, and can be paid for through Powerschool or at the school office through Elaine by cash or cheque. Tickets can be picked up from school office either by student, or parent.
  • If there is a desire to purchase tickets, but you are in financial need, please contact Kris Reid (Assistant Principal) at
  • The sooner you purchase your tickets the easier it is for the planning committee to move ahead –  deadline for purchase is Tuesday, June 4.
  • You can invite as many guests as your student would like to invite (parents, grandparents, etc) are welcome to attend the BBQ (ends at 8:00 pm), however once dance starts, only current grade 9 students from Sherwood Heights may stay.
