Dear Graduating Johnston Heights Student

In order for you to walk across the stage in a nice blue gown at your Commencement Ceremony on Monday, June 20, 2016 we need to know what size of gown you will need. Please write how tall you are in inches (ex 5”4) with your shoes on.

Also, as you walk across the stage your name will be called, and a short statement will read out by a teacher. You get to compose that statement! We will edit the statement (if needed) for brevity, clarity, and content. This is something that you only get to do once in your lifetime, so it’s certainly a good idea to put some extra thought, care, and attention into it. Some things you could consider mentioning:

1. YOUR PLANS (short/long term) FOR THE FUTURE
2. SOMEONE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO THANK (parents/teachers/friends)
3. WHAT/WHO YOU WILL MISS
4. A MESSAGE TO YOUR CLASSMATES
5. SCHOOL ACTIVITIES YOU ENJOYED WHILE YOU WERE HERE

The message must be brief: No more than about 2 - 3 lines. It should take no more than about 4 seconds to read. Due to time limits, not all of your message may be read, so please keep your message meaningful but brief. It will be shortened if it is too long! It also must be professional and appropriate for school.

It must be written in the “3rd Person” – i.e. don’t use “I”, as in “I would like to thank my mother and father...” Instead, use 3rd person “Daniella would like to thank her mother and father for their unwavering support…”

Sample Message (NOTICE THAT IT IS WRITTEN IN THIRD PERSON PERSPECTIVE).

"James would like to thank, his parents and teachers for their unwavering support and guidance. James will be pursuing a career in nuclear medicine at UBC in September"
