School Information

Valedictorian

An email has been sent to grads on May 28th with a google doc to vote for the valedictorian. Only 2021 Grads can vote.

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

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.
