We continue to be very proud of you, Class of 2020! Although the pandemic has brought disappointment due to its impact on this special time that should be a celebration of so many wonderful accomplishments. This time has also given us greater perspective, strength and appreciation as well! We have been working closely with our Senior Class Officers, PAC, PTSA, District Leadership, the IEF, Booster Club, iAsk, our Village, the Irvington Police Department, the Recreation and Parks Department, Bridge Street Properties and all of our community partners to plan and offer end of year opportunities and experiences.
Today's communication reviews some of the information that was shared in earlier blasts: April 29th and May 8th and provides additional important updates regarding traditional end-of-year events such as graduation activities. There are a number of items that require action. Please review this blast carefully and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Prom: Unfortunately, this year we are unable to host a traditional prom. Upon review of the Senior Survey and following up with senior class officers, the collective feedback we have received is that a virtual alternative is not desired.
Senior Class officers will coordinate with Ms. Ippolito, the Senior Class Advisor, to host a class-wide Kahoot! on Wednesday, June 10th. Ms. Ippolito and Senior Class Officers will share details on the Seniors Class of 2020 Google Classroom page.
Senior Awards & Scholarships: A list of students receiving Senior Awards and Scholarships will be shared with the community via a blast on Tuesday June 9. This will also be highlighted in the Graduation Video, and awards will be handed out at our Live Graduation Car Parade on June 20th.
