CLASS OF 2020 VALEDICTORIAN

Although we are still uncertain about how the Valedictory Address will be delivered to this year's class, it is an important aspect of every graduation, and will take place in some form.  

It is the responsibility of the Valedictorian to bid farewell to graduating students while also celebrating the collective achievements and accomplishments of the class as they finish their high school journey.

Are you able to represent the experiences of the graduating class? Can you share with friends, family, and the wider community what it means to have been a student at SCI? Would you be able to use your words to empower your peers for what comes next?

If you wish to be this year’s Valedictorian, please email Mrs. Loureiro at tloureiro@sunrisesd.ca.  In your email, provide a rationale for why you should represent this year’s graduating class as the Valedictorian.  A responding email will follow with next-step instructions.
