RE: Grad Update

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Plans are well underway for R.F. Staples 2016 Graduation Ceremony which takes place from noon to 2 p.m. at the Spirit Centre on June 29.  Thank you to our school grad coordinator Lisa Albrecht and our students involved in planning! This is a huge undertaking and we are very grateful to you for your work. I will be assisting Ms. Albrecht at the upcoming student grad meetings.

In keeping with tradition, the R.F. Staples team is organizing the Graduation Ceremony which will see each of our graduates, wearing their caps and gowns, called to the stage to be recognized and honored.

The parent grad committee is organizing a graduation banquet and dance, which will take place later in the evening – also at the Spirit Centre. Please contact Michelle Boychuk for more information about this event. Thank-you to the parents for their hard work. It is appreciated!

The students have requested a Grand March. Mrs. Annette Bokenfohr is going to lead this parent planned event. Thank-you to those parents who have volunteered to help to date. Mrs. Bokenfohr is looking for more volunteers to ensure a smooth transition from the ceremony to the Grand March. There is a sign up sheet posted at the school on the Grad Bulletin Board or you can email Annette at

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the phone numbers provided above or at
