LV Rogers Cap and Gown
Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, the LV Rogers Secondary School Cap and Gown Ceremony slated for Friday, June 12th, 2020 at the NDCC (Nelson District Civic Centre) has unfortunately been cancelled.
School Administration will be filming a virtual Cap and Gown Ceremony at the school, which will be broadcast late in June. No students or families will be in attendance at this filming. Student names, "Say Somethings" and any scholarships that have been awarded to students will be read out at this ceremony.
On Saturday, June 13th, a modified, approved Cavalcade (Parade) will be held, with a starting point at LV Rogers School. For information on how to sign up for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Wednesday and Thursday, June 24th and 25th, Grads and limited family members will be able to book an appointment to come to the school to pick up diplomas and Grad caps, and take photos in the decorated courtyard. Please bring a phone or camera for your own personal photos. More information regarding this and how to sign up will be available soon.
The LV Rogers Secondary Valedictorian is chosen amongst peers, and vetted by administration. The role of valedictorian is to represent our school community, be in good academic standing, attendance, and character. Eligibility for Valedictorian begins in late April.
Say Somethings are an LV Rogers tradition. They are submitted by the student, and indicate in one or two brief lines, what their hope is for the future, what they plan to do, or who they wish to thank. Say Somethings are read during the Cap and Gown Ceremonies as students cross the stage. Administration will vett the Say Somethings for appropriate content and humour.
