To the Parents/Guardians of Tupper Grade 12 students,

Re:         Grad Events and School Leaving Ceremony

This year marks the culmination of 13 years of public education for our grade 12 students and their families. We are all excited about the coming year where the grade 12 students are planning their futures by investigating potential options for next year. For families, it is a time to be proud of their children for their hard work, successes and perseverance. This will be evident at our School Leaving Ceremony on June 15th, 2017 where we will honour our students for their accomplishments.

We want all of our grade 12 students to participate in this years’ grad events (i.e. Grad Fun Nights, Grad Cruise – April 28, Dinner Dance – June 15th) and the School Leaving Ceremony as they are important events for both the student and their families.  Students, however, must meet some basic expectations to be eligible to participate.  Our expectations include:

  • Attending all classes regularly and on time
  • putting forth best efforts to meet the academic requirements of the classroom
  • following ROARS (our School Code of Conduct)

​If grade 12 students do not meet these expectations, they will jeopardize their participation in grad events. These expectations are not set up to be punitive towards our students, but to encourage our students to develop positive study and work habits to be successful and focussed until the end of the school year.  We will be monitoring all of the grade 12 students’ progress throughout the year. Our goal is for all of our grade 12 students to participate in grad events and the School Leaving Ceremony. 

We encourage you to have a discussion with your child about these expectations and their plan to exceed them. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our expectations for your child, please contact me at 604-713-8233. Thank you for your support in making this year memorable and a positive experience for your child.

Yours truly, 

Ms. A. Ogden
