          GRAD NEWS

 

 VALEDICTORIAN NOMINATIONS: If you would like to nominate yourself for valedictorian, please pick up a nomination form from the main office, complete it and submit to Ms. Kartsonas by April 24th.  You must also find 10 grade 12 students to endorse your nomination form as a show of support and to ensure that nominations are serious. You must also get one teacher and one administrator to endorse your nomination. You may only endorse the nomination of ONE student, including yourself. 

What is a valedictorian? The valedictorian for the Hamber class of 2017 should be the student who best represents the graduating class.  The valedictorian writes and gives a speech at the end of the grad ceremony that captures the spirit of the class, acknowledges the achievements and contributions of the students, staff and parents in the journey, and looks ahead to life beyond high school. The speech should be serious, inspirational and, hopefully, entertaining.  Grade 12 students will vote for valedictorian from the list of nominated candidates in homeroom on May 2nd.

Criteria: Minimum B average, good record of attendance and conduct

Questions? Please see Ms. Kartsonas or Ms. Thomson
