GRADE 8 FAREWELL
Dear Grade 8 Students and Families:
This letter is written to inform you of the final details regarding the Grade 8 Farewell
FAREWELL (Monday, June 25th @ 7:00 p.m.)
Dress - We would like to keep dress fairly casual so that the students can wear the clothes again. .
Number of Guests - Each student is allowed to invite eight-ten adult guests (usually parents/guardians, grandparents and ect.). Invitations will be given to the students in the next few weeks. In some circumstances it may be necessary for more guests to attend the program. We would like to be sensitive to this; however, we need to ensure that we have adequate space to hold the program and maintain a relaxed atmosphere. If there are special circumstances please indicate them on the attached information sheet or contact Mr. Catton. Family, friends, etc. are invited to a reenactment of the Farewell Ceremony, which will take place on Tuesday, June 26th, at 10:35 a.m.
Class Photograph – Individual photos and a class photograph will be taken by Carman Mose Photography this year. This is the second time we have used Carman; we chose to do so because the quality of her pictures are very high. To see some of the pictures from last year check out the following link: http://animoto.com/play/NiAbNTiH1Ih64XiTAC6mxg .
Below is a letter from Carmen Mose Photography:Session fee of $20.00 per graduate, which will be covered by the grade 8 farewell account, includes all post-processing time of photos, as well as a DVD disc of all your edited and retouched photos for printing at your leisure. My hope would be to meet at an outdoor location. This provides the opportunity for a fun and creative atmosphere. For a class of around 16 students we would need one hour to ensure a group photo is included and opportunity for each graduate to get in front of the camera! In case of inclement weather, an indoor location would be arranged. Please check out my website www.carmansphotography.ca
Farewell Program – The program at the school will begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp on Monday, June 25th. Guests should arrive early to find their seats and take any pictures. The ceremony will likely end at approximately 8:00-:30 p.m. After the ceremony, there will be a dessert/tea put on by the Mr. Johnston’s grade six/seven class in the library. The dessert/tea will be a place where family and friends can meet and talk for a while. At about 9:00 p.m., the service will be over.
Yearbook – A personal copy of the yearbook will be available for all members of the Class of 2011/12free of charge. Students will be making the video yearbook using Comic Life.
Farewell Slideshow – a copy of the slideshow will be given to each grade 8 student free of charge.
