Thanks to all who made Ashcroft Grad memorable

School is out for the summer and this year's Ashcroft Secondary grads thank those who made it possible.

Dear Editor

On behalf of the 37 graduates of the Ashcroft Secondary School for 2013, we would like to share with your readers about some people who made our graduation on June 7 a night to remember.

Thank you to our Principal, Mrs. Colleen Minnabarriet. She has been the driving force behind us, not only for the past five years, but with all of our Prom celebrations as well. There aren’t enough adverbs and adjectives to describe all that you do. Zip-lining with us is definitely a highlight!

Thank you to Mrs. Hazel Caissie for doing everything from A to Z. There aren’t enough job titles to describe what you do. We hope Santa leaves you a pair of golden scissors this year for making cutting of Prom tickets easier!

Thank you to our Teachers for leading us through our schooling and giving us this start to our journeys. When we finish the 2013 Grad sign and put it on the hill, please remember that it will stand as a tribute to you all!

The Grad sign would not have been possible without the donations of time, material, and efforts of Michael Sabyan, Robert Corley, and Howard Johnson of H&E Mining. Thanks to the town blacksmith, John Bundus!

Special Thanks to Mrs. Haller, Ms. Parsons, Mr. Close, Mr. Rainey, Mrs. Schiller (you are going to miss us – admit it!), Mrs. Clarke and Mrs. Zado for your participation in Graduation and Prom.

Thank you to our bus drivers, who probably know more about us than our parents!

To the people behind the scenes at the School Board… we appreciate the silent but important work that you do to make us successful students. In the end, it has been a great school to go to!
