FLHS Graduation Committee

Update June 10 2021

Many students and parents requested an opportunity for graduates to have photos with graduation gowns. Thank you for your comments and concerns.

We have connected with our graduation gown supplier Gaspard and have made some new arrangements we are happy to share with you.

Graduates who have fully paid school fees will have the opportunity to sign-out their graduation gown & stole and receive their cap and tassel on Friday June 25th. Students will be able to keep their grad cap, tassel and rented gown & stole for the weekend to take photos with family and friends. All gowns & stoles must be returned to the school by 1:00pm on Monday June 28th following the graduation ceremony at the school. This will also provide a little bit of time for photos outside following walking the stage and receiving their diploma cover and certificate. After walking the stage, if graduates choose to leave the school they must stay on school property, the front lawn, before returning their gown.

All staff are excited to share in this special celebration with students on June 28th and to provide this opportunity for graduates and families. The ceremony and walking the stage will still be live streamed through Microsoft Teams as we are still unable to have guests enter the school.

Paying fees should not be a barrier to this opportunity. Any families or students who require making arrangements for school fees should contact Matt Fell at mcfell@cbe.ab.ca or call the main office, 403-272-6665.

Gown and Stole pick up:

Friday, June 25th 9:00am – 1:00pm – Learning Commons. Students who do not pick up their gowns on Friday will be fitted on Monday before walking the stage.

As other details are finalized updates will be provided.

Update June 7 2021

Graduation is fast approaching.  This certainly will not be the day or graduation we had planned, but nevertheless we could not be more proud of our students and their accomplishments.  As a staff, we are very proud of all our graduates and privileged to have had the opportunity to spend the last 3 years with them.

Update - May 7 2021

The graduation list is now posted in the Student Services D2L.  Since students are remaining online, they can check in the D2L shell to confirm if their student number is on the list. 

The graduation committee is in full swing, carrying on with the planning and organization of a face-to-face celebration at Forest Lawn High School Theatre on June 28th and 29th for all graduating grade 12 students. To meet safety requirements our celebration will adhere to all of the Covid protocols and guidelines as presented by Alberta Health Services (AHS) and the Calgary Board of Education (CBE).

Planning is also well underway for the virtual graduation ceremony. The program that would have been used in a regular ceremony will be followed as closely as possible. This includes things like the valedictorian speech, principal address, musical interlude, etc. The committee is working hard to make this as special an event as possible, and believe these are important piece of the ceremony.
