Thank you to everyone that lent their voice to support Kaylayla. She will be going to Grad!!
Kaylayla Raine McMath is a student at Templeton Secondary school. For the past 4 years she’s been very involved in both the film and drama program.
She’s brilliant, creative, compassionate and hardworking. She’s also someone that beats to the tune of her own drum. She’s an amazing young women and I feel blessed to know her. A few years ago, she decided that she wanted to graduate early so for the past year she’s taken on extra courses and worked her butt off to obtain the credits she needs to graduate a year early. However,being a teenager is tough and she’s had more life challenges than most so she’s missed a lot of school. (Not flaking! Just dealing with her stuff) regardless she’s still been able to pass her courses.
The principal at Templeton had decided to deny her the right right to walk across the stage with her peers saying her attendance sets a bad example for other students.
I say she sets an amazing example!
She’s showing that even when life gets tough you can still push on through to reach your goals.
If this is something that resonates with you, please sign this petition to urge the principal at Templeton Secondary school to allow Kaylayla to go to grad. ( there are other students in exactly the same position as her who he has not denied this opportunity)
