** Change to Graduation Fees**
Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, the Seine River School Division Board of Trustees has committed to cover all costs associated with graduation convocation. Previously costs associated with gown rental, hall rental, A/V expenses, and a variety of other costs were paid for by graduates and their families, typically amounting to approx. $130/graduate. Because of this new Board policy, graduation convocation fees paid for by students and parents are no longer needed.
Please note that costs associated with the graduation dinner and dance will remain the responsibility of graduates and their attending guests.
Please also note that any outstanding miscellaneous school fees (lost books, sport fees, missing team jerseys, etc.), must be paid for prior to June 26th or that student may not be allowed to attend the convocation event.
Dinner and Dance Tickets
Sales for dinner and dance tickets will be sold in 2 phases. Please note that dinner and dance tickets are non-refundable. Graduate must purchase a ticket for themselves.
Phase 1 – Tuesday, April 3, 2018 to Monday, April 9, 2018
Each graduate will have the opportunity to purchase a maximum of 4 tickets during this phase. Tickets will be available at the office and must be purchased before 3:30 on Monday, April 9th to ensure all graduates have an equal opportunity for tickets.
Phase 2 – Tuesday, May 1st until tickets are sold out
Beginning at 8:00am on May 1st, graduates will be able to purchase additional tickets at a maximum of 4 per day until all tickets are sold out. ALL tickets must be paid by May 31, 2018
Ticket prices are $65. Graduates will be issued their tickets after convocation upon the return of their rented gown.
In order to offset the cost to the student (and probably parents) the following fundraising was held this year :
- Show and save September
- DFS Holiday Gift Wrap October
- Mom's Pantry November
Please be advised that any fundraising overages will be applied directly to any monies paid towards a student's account. If no monies have been paid, the fundraising overages will be added to a general graduation account and not paid out to a student. Fundraising may be applied to dinner and dance tickets purchased or any other school or extra-curricular activity that requires a fee.
Also, any outside fundraising with individual businesses must be pre-approved by administration.

- All monies for dinner and dance tickets must be in by May 31, 2018

GRAD VIDEO AND GRADUATION YEARBOOK INFO
ALL YEARBOOKS MUST BE ORDERED BEFORE FRIDAY MAY 11, 2018
This year your son or daughter is graduating! Congrats! At the grad dinner and dance we are having a Grad Video. The main showcase in the video is a segment called "Baby Pictures Reenactments". It would be great if you could sit down with your awesome child and pick out a cute/funny baby picture to send with them to school so we can scan it and use it in our Grad Video. The other fun part to that is to try and reenact that photograph as best as you can with your child at their present age. Your son/daughter should know what we mean by reenactment:) Here is an example:
When you send the baby picture and the reenactment picture with your child to school you can also do a short congratulations write-up for their baby picture which will also appear in the yearbook. You can send the pictures digitally as well to : email@example.com Please do so before May 31, 2018.
Speaking of yearbooks only about 20% of graduates have purchased their Grade 12 yearbook. You can purchase one online for $50 at:
A cheque can be made out to St.Norbert Collegiate or cash. It is a great keepsake for your child's graduating year. Just so you know in the past Yearbooks were part of the students fees. This year you did not have to pay student fees and in turn the yearbooks will now have to be bought instead.
