Grad 2020 Student Video

Grad Class 2020!

Sal is creating a student video of what this time was like for the Class of 2020!

We are looking for a variety of clips and we do not want to end of 250 students sitting in front of a computer.

Some ideas are:

  • skateboarding
  • playing basketball (by yourself)
  • playing an instrument
  • working on an art project
  • hanging out with siblings (e.g. building lego)

The  footage does not have to be school related, and we want to see your personalities in this film. Please limit your submission to 30 seconds or less. Get creative with your footage. Use the guidelines and notes as the poster reflects. All films must be done in landscape, and we will not include footage shot in portrait. All footage will be screened for content.

Please upload your submissions to the following Google Classroom below:

  • Go to Google Classroom
  • Click on Join Class and use this code: blxvtif
  • Click on the assignment for the video upload
  • Click on add attachment
  • Select your video from your phone, computer or select from your Google Drive (depending on your device or where you saved the video)
  • Click 'Hand In'

We want as many videos as possible, so please tell your fellow graduates. Only 1 video per graduate.

Grad 2020

Dear Sabre Families of the Class of 2020,

We are pleased to inform you, we have a plan in place - one that allows us to celebrate this significant milestone with students, while also respecting the restrictions necessary for everyone to remain safe and healthy.

To recognize the Class of 2020, Salisbury is hosting a Convocation Ceremony from June 22 to June 24, 2020. We are starting the planning process that will include students walking the stage and receiving their graduation certificate, wearing their choice of formal wear with the cap and gown and then having students move their tassel from right to left signifying they've officially graduated. After the tassel turning, guests will have the opportunity to take photos of the graduate using a Salisbury backdrop.

We are also working on student, parent and staff videos along with the traditional messages from Administration and our Valedictorian. We will have a professional videographer and photographer capturing this auspicious occasion and will also be live-streaming the entire three days.

Salisbury staff will be present during the convocation ceremony to celebrate and honour the Class of 2020.

We further invite you to a Graduation 2020 parent meeting on Tuesday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m. Mr. Salyzyn, Grade 12 Administrator, will outline more specifics, gain feedback, collective wisdom, and communicate how parents can get involved moving forward. Please join the meet through this link.

We are confident this plan allows graduation to remain a special moment for students and their families - and a memory they'll look back on with fondness. School wide, we're incredibly proud of the work the Class of 2020 have put into achieving this important milestone, and we look forward to the opportunity to celebrate in their achievement.
