-School Leaving Ceremony: Wednesday, May 22, 2013, 7pm, Bill Copeland Arena. Come celebrate as the Grad Class of 2013 walks across the stage and celebrates. Each grad is receiving 2 tickets, and extras can be purchased for 5$ each at the school office.

-Grad Dinner Dance/Dry Grad: Friday May 25th, 2013. Renaissance  Hotel and Burnaby Mountain Secondary, 7pm start. Our grad formal night, and a special one too. Please see Ms Manning or Ms Gingras for more info.

-Carnival: Friday June 14th. A fantastic end of the year celebration put on by Student Council. More info will be posted soon.

We’d also like to take some time on this post to make some much needed thank-yous for people who our dedicating their time to make our year better:

Mrs Sandy Ryant, thank you for your effort, experience and commitment you have put in to making our Advanced Placement program successful over the past years. The program would not be successful without your dedication and hard work. THANK YOU!

Mrs Britt Walton, thank you for your time and organization you have put into recording, deciding and notifying students about Scholarships for our Grad Class. Managing this in addition to being the Socials Dept. Head must not be the easiest task in the world, but you do an outstanding job of it! THANK YOU!

Ms Jyoti Panesar, Ms Jennifer Manning, Ms Cynthis Gingras, Mr Tim Wozney and Mr James Morton, thank you for the time and planning you have put into organizing the Graduation School Leaving Ceremonies, as well as the Graduation Dinner Dance. These events would not happen without our hard work. The Grad Class of 2013 is extremely thankful of the work you have put in.

Mr Ed Ko and Ms Tara-Lynn O’Reilly, thank you to both you and Grad Council for the planning and fundraising you have put in to Dry Grad. Thanks needs to go to the parent volunteers as well, since with none of you this event wouldn’t happen!

3 more months!

Can you all believe it?!? There is only 3 MORE MONTHS of school left in the year! So many activities are still ahead this year, with our AP Weeks coming up for our senior students, Grad Ceremony, Dinner Dance, Dry Grad, Spirit Days, Talent Show, Carnival, Cancer All-Nighter and so many more! Watch this blog, our Twitter and Facebook accounts and the Student Bulletin to keep up to date on everything thats going on. Best of luck to you all as we step into Term 3 this week!


Some very exciting news we would like to share is that our Vice Principals have changed. We would like to give Ms Kristmanson a HUGE congratulations on being promoted to Principal of Burnaby South Secondary! Her new position has begun, so you wont be seeing her around Burnaby Mountain much longer! This means, of course, that we have a vice-principal position that needs to be filled! We would also like to extend a warm welcome to Mr James Morton from Alpha Secondary who will be taking on Ms Kristmanson’s position. We hope that you settle in to Burnaby Mountain and we look forward to meeting you and introducing ourselves!


Thats all for now… See y’all around.
