Principal's Message

Graduation is an academic celebration of years of hard work. Congratulations on making it this far. To make it a meaningful event requires your active participation. You can participate by:

  • Being informed about diploma requirements and ensuring that you have passed or are registered in all the necessary courses to earn your diploma by the end of June.
  • Watching for and reading any grad information in the monthly newsletters, on the school website.
  • Providing input by asking your Connect Class Teacher or providing feedback.
  • Providing necessary information and pictures for the committees, the newspaper, and the yearbook
  • Volunteering to help either in a short term or long-term capacity

Celebrating graduation is an exciting time in your life. By working together, we can ensure your memory of it is special. I look forward to a wonderful grade 12 year, culminating in a celebration of your educational journey.

You can pick up these boxes from our locations in Airdrie, Chestermere or Cochrane. If you live outside of RVS, please let us know, and we can send the package to you for an additional postage cost.


If you miss the pick-up day, all boxes will reside at the Airdrie Office.

Donations to Grad Fees

Some of our families are facing financial difficulties and are unable to pay for their children's graduation fees. We are seeking donations to help support these students so they can participate in the graduation ceremony. Your contribution, no matter how small, can make a big difference in these students' lives. Donations over $20 are eligible for a taxable receipt, and if you choose to donate, please select Summit Trails and write "GRADUATION" in the comment section. Thank you for your generosity and support.
