Grad Video!


REMINDER: We Need Your Grad Videos and Pics!

Hi Grads,

Rachel is putting together a grad video and we would love to have your voices included in it!  If you could film yourself (horizontally ideally:) saying some final parting words to your graduating class, that would be great!  You can email your video clips directly to Rachel at rachel.rosen@tdsb.on.ca

Please keep your videos very short: a sentence or two:), so we can include everyone!

If you’d rather send a photo message you can do that too:

Upload one photograph of yourself in your email.  The photograph should be a “passport style”, meaning that it is centered on your shoulders and face. But unlike a passport photo, please be sure to smile 😊! The photo must be in .jpg format. Please name the photo as firstname_lastname.jpg. N.B. Maximum file size is 10 MB.

DEADLINE to email Rachel your video is  May 31, 2021!
