Grocery Gift Card Fundraiser part two
Hello everyone! Forty-two students participated in the first grocery gift card fundraiser by selling $90,825 in gift cards. We are offering a second round for grads to reduce their grad fees and help fundraise for the grad class at the same time. Fifty per cent of the profit goes to the grad and fifty per cent goes to the grad class in general. This grocery gift card order is due April 9, 2021 to the LVR office. See the forms below to download and start selling. Printed copies will be availabe in the LVR office after spring break.
We are close to setting grad fees for 2021. We are settling in around $65 per grad for fees and $45 for hoodies. Once we are back in session after spring break we will make the final decision!

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.
