Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

It’s been a challenging spring for the Class of 2020. Despite disruptions in learning, distance from their peers and their teachers, and the loss of loved ones to coronavirus — our seniors have made it to the finish line. This week, they will graduate, certainly not in the way they expected, but with no less fervor, unity and pride.

We’ve gathered stories and scenes of celebration from across the network to showcase the unique ways that our schools are celebrating the achievements of their resilient students. 

Graduation Parades

Unable to gather for graduation due to coronavirus, several schools this year opted to hold drive-by “Graduation Parades,” delivering caps, gowns and diplomas to their students’ doorsteps. What a fun and unique way to ensure that the Class of 2020 was still celebrated for their hard work!
