Dear Parents and Guardians of the Graduating Candidates of 2016
The graduation ceremonies at L.V. Rogers Secondary School take place June 10, 2016 for cap and gown ceremonies and June 11, 2016 for Grand March, Cavalcade and Prom. Traditionally, LVR grad would occur the first Friday/Saturday of June which would be June 3/4; however this year the BC Provincial Championships for girls' soccer, rugby and track & field all fall on that weekend and we could force many of our grads to choose between two very important events so we have moved our events to June 10/11. I hope that having our graduation ceremonies on June 10th/11th does not cause you undue inconvenience.
*** GRAD FEES ***
April 8, 2016 is the last day for payment of grad fees. Please ensure you get your payments in by this date so you don't miss out!!!
The special grad edition of the yearbook is complimentary courtesy of your Grad Committee!
