Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
Graduation - June 6, 2020, As of right now, we do not expect social distancing guidelines to change before our originally scheduled commencement ceremony. We also do not want to keep postponing this event with the hope that the social distancing guidelines will be lifted by then. We want to honor our seniors and give them the recognition and closure they deserve. That is why we will move forward with holding an event on June 6 in two parts.
Part One - 3 pm The first part will be broadcast via a GoToMeeting webinar and include the traditional speeches from myself, Superintendent Carrie Wozniak, Board of Education President Laura Edghill, and your class valedictorian, salutatorians and class president. We will also call all of the seniors’ names in alphabetical order. We will share the registration and viewing instructions at a later date.
Part Two - 7 pm The second part will be what we will call our Fraser Drive-thru Graduation Ceremony held on the football field at Fraser High School. This will be a new experience for us all, but it will allow for the Class of 2020 to come back home to FHS and receive their diploma. We will continue to follow the Governor's recommendations for social distancing, but we will do our best to make this a personal experience for each senior.
We ask that someone other than the senior drives, so the senior can wear their cap and gown, receive their diploma, have their picture taken, and turn their graduation tassel. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing additional details along with the guidelines for vehicle participation. Below are a few highlights of this unique event:
• Students will be able to decorate their cars.
• Students will receive their Diploma Cover and Diploma that day.
• Student Names will be highlighted on the ScoreBoard.
• Students will have photo opportunities. • We will have special student performances.
• We will be providing all families with a video recording of the event.
We are working with our leadership team, Board of Education and Student Council to make these memorable events for all of our seniors and their families. Throughout this time, I have stressed that we are in this together. I look forward to the opportunity for us to come together at our home - Fraser High School - to celebrate the Class of 2020
