Looking for Creative Ideas for Graduation Since There Won't Be a Ceremony or Party Due to Covid19
In the midst of this trying time my daughter is watching all of her senior activities pass her by. I'm not trying to make light of the seriousness of the virus or seem selfish. I'm just trying to think ahead and make some plans. I'm sure parents with seniors all over the world are trying to figure out what to do.
My daughter graduates from high school in May. I want to have some kind of graduation/party for her even though I highly doubt there will be a ceremony and unless things changes we won't be able to have a party either. The prom has been taken off of the calendar, her theatre class would have performed Seussical (she was going to be the Sour Kangaroo), honors night & various banquets where the kids would be presented their chords probably won't happen as well as all their senior week activities including graduation.
Some of the moms have thrown the idea around about lining all of the kids up in their cars and letting them "parade" around the subdivisions so families can wave to them. Teachers from several schools did that and the kids loved it. With over 700 seniors that would probably hard to coordinate though...
I'm hoping they go back to school on April 27th - that's the scheduled day of return for now - (We've been doing digital learning) so the kids can at least get their caps and gowns so we can take some pictures.
We usually put yard signs out at the front of the subdivisions for each senior. I'm hoping to be able to get one made but that would be a non essential business so not sure if I will be able to.
The school asks for family and friends to write senior letters. Since we've been on digital learning I've been reminding people over and over trying to get a few b/c I hate to think that that's probably all she'll get for graduation - other than a memory she'll never forget.
Right now we can't gather at all - not even 10 or less - so unless that changes we can't have a traditional party. She wanted a fry bar. If they go back to school we might be able to have one but who knows. I thought about a drive by party.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
