Good morning Hawks,

Next week the staff at Monsignor Haller are excited to congratulate our Grade 8 Graduates!!  This is truly bittersweet for everyone;  we are so proud of each and every student, however we will not have the privilege of celebrating you in the way we had hoped.  

On Thursday June 18th, grads can come to the school between 4-5pm.  Each student will walk up the pathway when the entrance is clear to meet Mrs. Rice, Ms. O’Neill and Mrs. Hunter.  We will be socially distanced, but we are still ready to celebrate!

Please carefully adhere to the Health & Safety guidelines attached here:Graduation Letter June 2020

Mrs. Rice and Miss O’Neill have been working very hard on creating the ceremony into a virtual celebration.  All the touches we would normally have for students will be linked into a slideshow, including speeches, teachers introducing students for their diploma, awards etc.  After the grads visit the school, the grade 8 teachers will then share the presentation with the kids at the same time.
