Graduating from high school isn’t just about getting the diploma. Graduating is a right of passage. It’s a pathway to adulthood for many students, which begins at the graduation ceremony. Across this country, thousands of students won’t have this experience. I empathize with them as I know how meaningful it is to participate in a graduation ceremony, and how long students have looked forward to this moment now cancelled.
As a high school teacher, one of our greatest moments is seeing our students graduate. No matter how challenging the school year is, all of that stress seems to vanish on graduation day. And, as a teacher at an alternative school, I know firsthand just how difficult it can be for some students to walk across that stage. So, when they finally do, the feeling of joy (and sometimes relief) fills your heart.
This year, 2020, would’ve been my eighth graduation with my school. Back in March, when speculation was made that graduation might be cancelled, I think students/families and school staff held out hope that ceremonies might still take place. Unfortunately, we now know that that won’t happen. However, there are ways in which you can honor graduates. I’ve listed some ideas below.
