Grade 12 students and Parents and Guardians of the Class of 2021,
I’m sure you are aware of the recent announcement granting secondary schools permission to plan a socially distanced and safe outdoor graduation event. I refer to Director Daly’s email dated Wednesday, June 2:
As noted in the press release, the government will allow school boards to invite graduating students in elementary schools (by class) and secondary schools (by cohort) to return to school in June for a short, outdoor celebration, where physical distancing is possible. Not having received any formal direction or parameters from the Ministry of Education, I am not able to provide any additional information at this time.
As previously communicated to families, our schools have been preparing for virtual graduation ceremonies for the last several weeks/months and extensive planning and work has already been undertaken to create memorable celebrations to honour our graduating students in Grade 8 and Grade 12. These virtual graduation celebrations will continue, as planned.
As indicated above, Corpus Christi will present a Virtual Graduation on Monday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. on our school’s YouTube channel. Link to follow!
We are happy to add that, similar to last year’s celebration, we will be offering an OUTDOOR GRADUATION DRIVE THRU for the Class of 2021.
On Monday, June 28 we invite our graduates to dress in grad gown and cap, choose a time to arrive and take a celebratory drive around the school that they will never forget!! We encourage you to decorate your cars in our school colours and make this as memorable as possible for your child. Staff members will also be on hand to cheer on our graduates and wish them well as they leave Corpus Christi and start the next chapter of their adventures.
Each graduate will have an opportunity to stop and collect his or her diploma and any awards that may have been received. We will have a Corpus Christi photo backdrop at which each graduate may take individual photos and photos with family members. This is a time to celebrate YOUR CHILDREN and all that they have accomplished.
Graduates have also received this email – please ensure that you are only signing up for ONE TIME SLOT per graduate. SIGN UP FOR Graduation Drive-thru June 28 2021
Below is a photo of the route you will drive. We hope to make it as special as possible for you. To make this work efficiently you will need to drive east on Upper Middle and make a right turn into the main driveway. The student parking lot will not be open. Follow the arrows and exit at the light, turning right (east) on Upper Middle. Graduation Drive Thru Route.PNG
If you are unable to attend on Monday, June 28, please arrange an alternate pick-up time with Mrs. Moro at email@example.com
We look forward to seeing all of you in your grad wear!!
Take care and stay safe,
