Grad Gown and Valedictory Write Up

To: Grade 12 Students and Parents/Guardians of Grade 12 Students


In preparation for our Valedictory Ceremony, there are two things we need from the students who will be crossing the stage.  One, your Grad Gown Measurements (aka, your height in feet and inches) and two, the words that will be shared about you when your cross the stage.  We would encourage parents and student to discuss who will submit this (sometimes we get more than one and it becomes confusing).


This form must be completed and submitted by Friday April 28th, 2017.  


Gown Sizing

Each student participating in the Valedictory Ceremony will receive a cap and gown that each will keep.  These will be distributed during the Valedictory Rehearsal on June 9th.  Though months away, orders need to go in soon (thus the importance of the deadline).  For gown sizing, we simply need your height to determine you gown sizing.  If you are not positive about your height in Imperial measure (sorry, this is what we are asked to send in), there is a height chart outside of Mr. Kamide's office.


Valedictory Write Up

As a part of the Valedictory Ceremony (to be held at the Chan Centre), a short (40 Word Maximum) passage will be read about each student as they cross the stage.  Each student will be responsible for submitting their own write up (though students may choose to have others - parents, siblings, friends) provide the information to be submitted.  PLEASE WRITE IN THIRD PERSON.

Below are a few examples.

  • Mary Jones is a sports enthusiast. She played senior volleyball and loves skiing and basketball. In September, Mary will be going to Langara to study nursing. Mary would like to thank her parents for all their endless support.
  • Steve Smith loves skiing, hiking, camping and rock climbing. He plans to backpack through Europe next year, and then pursue a career in outdoor adventure tourism. The highlight of his time at McMath was the trip to Costa Rica.
  • Ryan Richards enjoys helping people in the community, and loved visiting Lions Manor with the Human Services class.  He plans to study Science at UBC and hope eventually to become a doctor.
We request that you keep your submissions to no more that 40 words (Please count your words...if it is too long, it will be reduced).
