Are You “Walking the Stage?”

We are drawing near to the review date to determine which grade 12 students are “in a position to graduate.” Only those students who are in a position to graduate will be permitted to participate in the Graduation Ceremony in June. The date that each potential graduate will be reviewed is May 1st. At that time, if a student is not in a position to graduate, they will be removed from the graduation list and not permitted to participate in the Graduation Ceremonies in June.

  • Student must have completed or have a reasonable expectation of completing 80 credits (48 credits for required courses, 28 elective credits, and 4 credits for Graduation Transitions). 16 of these credits must be at the grade 12 level.
  • Any courses in progress outside of Langley Secondary, must be 80% complete with a passing grade as of May 1
  • Any courses in progress at Langley Secondary must have a passing or near passing grade as of May 1st
  • Graduation Transitions 12 must be complete by May 1st

 

GRAD Fees ($60)/ Student Fees ($25)

Students’ grad and student fees must be paid prior to receiving/purchasing tickets for the Graduation Ceremony or the Graduation Dinner & Dance.

 

Grad Ceremony Ticket Information

Each graduate will receive 3 free tickets in the week of May 11-15 for the Graduation Ceremony. If there are any tickets that you are not planning on using, please return them to the office. You will receive $10 for each returned ticket. There are graduates with large immediate families that would love the opportunity to pick up extra tickets for family members. Do not lose your tickets. You will need to submit them at the door to gain access into the venue. The seating is general so the seats are available on a first come first served basis.

Graduates who are requesting additional tickets, need to fill out a form in the office in the week of May 11-15. A fair and equitable system will be used to distribute extra tickets. The distribution of extra tickets will begin with 1 extra ticket per family that requests additional tickets. Ticket request forms must be submitted by Friday May 15. The cost for additional tickets is $10 each and must be paid at the time you submit your form for extra tickets.

Purchasing Tickets for Graduation Dinner and Dance: Tickets will go on sale 2nd week of May.

Banquet tables are arranged with 10 seats. If you would like to sit together as a group, you must pick up a form in the office and complete it with the names and collect all monies, and return everything to the office before seats can be assigned. These forms will be available near the end of April so you can get this started! Once seats are assigned, the student leader will be called down or parents will be called to pick up tickets. All student guests require a guest pass submitted and approved prior to the purchase of a ticket. Guest forms will be available in the office mid-April. Parents may purchase dinner tickets at the same time.

 

Special Note re Attendance Expectations

Graduates are excused from classes for Thursday June 11 in the AFTERNOON for the rehearsal. Once the rehearsal is finished, they will be dismissed. Graduates must attend morning classes on that day. If graduates must miss classes on the Friday June 12 due to appointments, they are responsible for informing their teachers ahead of time and making up the missed work. Please do not call in to excuse students on the Friday. The students themselves must make arrangements with their teachers prior to June 11.
