Photos: Salute to the Class of 2024 at Lampman School

Lampman School's grad celebrations will take place on June 22.

Editor's note: We are proud to present our salute to the Class of 2024 at the Lampman School. We congratulate the grads on this important milestone, and we wish them all of the best in the future. Also, thanks to the sponsors who supported this initiative. 

LAMPMAN Lampman School is going to host its annual graduation ceremony on June 22, starting at 2:30 p.m. at the school.

Eleven graduates will receive their diplomas and move into the next phase of their lives.

Principal Annmarie Rosner said this year's class is looking forward to commemorating their time at the school.

"They are an incredibly engaged group of students in our school community, so they will definitely leave a hole in our school … next year," said Rosner. "They are very involved in the SRC [student representative council] and sports, and generally just helping out with the school."

The ceremony will feature a tribute to Chase Wanner, who passed away in 2023 and would have graduated this year. There will be recognition of the parents and teachers.

The guest speaker is Jeff Lunde, who is a former teacher at the school. Laura Christensen is the valedictorian.

There will also be a rose ceremony, and biographies that the parents have written about the graduates will be read.

"We read them aloud on behalf of the students to introduce them," said Rosner.

It's an incredibly organized event, Rosner said, and they had a lot of things in place and were ready regardless of what would happen with teacher sanctions. Teachers will be able to participate in the grad.

Banners are hanging on Highway 361 to showcase the grads and their achievements. 

A parade has been organized by the parent group and the community, and it will occur on Main Street. The tentative start time is 4:30 p.m.

Eleven grads is a little smaller than normal for Lampman School, she said. In recent years, the number of grads has hovered around 18, but Rosner noted it has also wavered between large classes and small classes in the past.

It will also be Rosner's final grad as principal, as she is moving on to be a vice-principal at the Estevan Comprehensive School after six years in Lampman.

Rosner said all of the grads at the school are looking forward to the final week of the school year and writing exams.
