Virtual Commencement 2020 Save The Date
Our virtual commencement ceremony for seniors will be held on June 19, 2020. We understand that a virtual graduation ceremony cannot replace the feeling of an in-person graduation ceremony, but this virtual event will mirror some of the most important elements of a traditional commencement. We want to make this event as special as possible!

Cap Toss Video & Baby Pictures
Dear Class of 2020,
With all the uncertainty surrounding graduation due to the extenuating circumstances caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have come up with a few awesome ideas to honor our Class of 2020 graduates and their families. While we still plan to film and release a formal commencement and roll call to recognize each Senior individually, we also plan to put together two other presentations with the help of our administrators and staff.
The first presentation will be a Graduation Dance Celebration and Cap Toss. We are allowing the Class of 2020, for the first time ever, to decorate their caps For this video, we plan to showcase our Seniors by having them turn in a 10-second dance video in their cap and gown. At the beginning of each individual video, the Senior will:
Catch their cap entering from screen left (their right),
They will pause to show off their personalized cap, and then
Throw it off-screen to screen right (their left).
This will showcase a horizontal progression of each student catching and throwing their cap and have the effect of their classmates receiving their own. This has been a popular method to celebrate high school sports teams around the country and we believe this is a fun way to recognize our graduates individually as well as collectively. This video will be posted on our school’s YouTube page.

The second presentation will be a Senior Baby Picture Montage through a Google Slide Presentation. If you or your parent have not already submitted a Baby Picture to the Yearbook advisors, please turn in a Baby Picture of yourself. We will use the Class of 2020’s Baby Pictures in a Google Slide Presentation of the Class of 2020 which will be posted on our school website. You can do this by scanning the photo and sending it or taking a photo of the photo on your cell phone.
We ask that you email these pictuers and videos to the following teachers:
If your last name starts with A-M then please email Ms. Murrenburke email@example.com
If your last name starts with N-Z then please email Ms. Murro firstname.lastname@example.org
**Please make sure that the senior’s full name and video title are listed in the subject line of the email. For example:
Joseph Smith/ baby photos or Joseph Smith/ dance celebration
We ask that you please turn in the Baby Picture by this Mon., May 25th & the Graduation Dance Celebration Video by Fri., June 5th.
If you have any questions, please send them to email@example.com, our Entertainment Technology teacher, or any of your Administrators; Mr. Parker, Mr. Pino, or Dr. Bouchard.
