Hats Off to the Graduates

Carlynton District did a car parade of teachers with decorated cars driving past students homes with signs, waving and beeping.

Keystone Oaks High School is recognizing members of the senior class on the district’s social media channels featuring senior pics and baby pictures along with future plans and accomplishments. Families will decorate their front doors with pictures and memorabilia of their senior. They will receive yard signs as well in May. In lieu of commencement on June 11, they will create a tribute video with a live viewing! They will be celebrating senior week with some fun virtual activities as well!

Seton LaSalle Catholic High School passed out yard signs. Their Student Council seniors created an Instagram account, rebelseniors2020, for students to submit information. Also, they would like to give a shout out to Valedictorian, Zachary Hartlep for receiving a National Merit Letter of Commendation and to Salutatorian, Grace Jelinek for receiving the National Merit University of Pittsburgh Scholarship! Congrats!

Our Lady of Sacred Heart (OLSH) will be giving out yard signs to the seniors. Every Saturday, 6 seniors will be featured on the school’s facebook page. Two seniors created an Instagram account, OLSHseniors2020, to show future plans and more! Check out the photo of College Shirt Day! On May 18, OLSH will hold the Honors Convocation, giving out academic awards and announcing the valedictorian and salutatorian virtually for all to see live. Families will decorate yards on May 20 to celebrate and they will create a video of that. Seniors are invited to pick up caps and gowns and with proper social distancing the teachers will spread out and cheer them on as they drive by. Graduation plans are still pending.

Bishop Canevin High School surprised the seniors with yard signs, yearbooks and their caps and gowns. Teachers drove to their homes, wearing masks and practicing social distancing and knocked on their doors. They are also honoring seniors on their facebook page and Instagram featuring pictures of each senior with their future plans and their favorite memories. The goal for graduation is to be together but if the rules in place don’t allow that, they will celebrate it in a different way.
