Dear Sabre families of the Class of 2020,
I’m writing to follow up with you about plans for graduation.
I’m pleased to inform you, we have a plan in place—one that allows us to celebrate this significant milestone with students, while also respecting the restrictions necessary for everyone to remain safe and healthy.
To recognize the Class of 2020, Salisbury is hosting a Convocation Ceremony from June 22 to June 24, 2020. We are starting the planning process that will include students walking the stage and receiving their graduation certificate, wearing their choice of formal wear with the cap and gown and then having students move their tassel from right to left signifying they’ve officially graduated. After the tassel turning, guests will have the opportunity to take photos of the graduate using a Salisbury backdrop.
We are also working on student, parent and staff videos along with the traditional messages from Administration and our Valedictorian. We will have a professional videographer and photographer capturing this auspicious occasion and will also be live-streaming the entire three days.
Salisbury staff will be present during the convocation ceremony to celebrate and honor the class of 2020.
We further invite you to a Graduation 2020 parent meeting Tuesday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m. Mr. Salyzyn, Grade 12 Administrator, will outline more specifics, gain feedback, collective wisdom, and communicate how parents can get involved moving forward. Please join the meet through the link provided below.
I am confident this plan allows graduation to remain a special moment for students and their families—and a memory they’ll look back on with fondness. School wide, we’re incredibly proud of the work the Class of 2020 have put into achieving this important milestone, and we look forward to the opportunity to celebrate in their achievement.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
