Grad Update: June 4


With the recent announcement about our schools being closed for the remainder of this school year, our Grade 8 Grad Committee team is still determined to make this a memorable time for our students. As you may have heard, Mr. Doug Ford surprisingly announced an encouragement for an outdoor celebration. This information is being processed by our Board and will be a BOARD DECISION based on advice and information from Halton Public Health. Please stay tuned for more information about this idea.

However, we already had an outdoor celebration planned on Tuesday, June 22nd for a chance for families to drive up and have a photo opportunity with their graduate. We are now awaiting direction from the Board and Public Health as to what exactly that may look like. Regardless, we will still need to keep our classes in cohorts for this type of activity and adhere to numbers for gatherings. Please continue to plan for this day as our outdoor celebration. We will send out more information as soon as things are finalized!

No matter what information does come our way, we will still hold our Graduation Ceremony on Monday, June 21st at 6:30pm as our Virtual Graduation Ceremony for all St. Anne students, in-school and virtual.

Our Grad Committee will still be providing each student with a rented Graduation Gown and personalized Lawn Sign. Gowns and Signs will be available for pick up on Friday, June 18th. Students will be able to use the gown for the Graduation Ceremony on Monday, and then return it to the school on Tuesday, June 22nd.


We are STILL looking for any photos you would like to share of your graduate(s) with school friends at school events or activities over the years for the Grade 8 Graduation Photo Book! Cost of the Grad Book will depend on the number of participants, but we are hoping it will be around $30.  An additional letter will be sent mid-June detailing cost, how to order and pick up information. Remember the deadline for photo submissions is Friday, June 11th! Please send your pics to the previous email we shared with you! 

We look forward to celebrating this graduation milestone with you! Please look out for additional information to come from our Board. Once we hear more, we will plan full steam ahead!

In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy!
