Avon Grove celebrates the 431 members of the Class of 2020
By Steven Hoffman
On Saturday, May 16, more than 70 Avon Grove School District staff members, board members and administrators decorated their vehicles and drove through the school district’s neighborhoods in a “car parade” to celebrate the class of 2020.
Groups gathered in the parking lot of Avon Grove High School (AGHS) at 9 a.m. to adorn their vehicles with balloons, signs and streamers, and to obtain parade routes for the occasion. With horns beeping, the car parades proceeded in all directions. The school district surprised each student with a visit to their home, and successfully delivered lawn signs to all 431 graduates who are in the Class of 2020.
This event is just one of the many festivities that the Avon Grove School District staff and administration have planned to honor and recognize each of the graduating seniors. Preparations for a virtual graduation ceremony have commenced, and caps and gowns were distributed for a personalized “walking the stage” ceremony at the high school.
The virtual ceremony will also include recordings of speeches from the high school administrators and students, recognition of the seniors entering the military, the traditional changing of the guard for class officers and a special turn of the tassel. The full version of the virtual graduation ceremony for the Avon Grove High School class of 2020 will be available for viewing on June 8 at 7 p.m. on the Avon Grove School District website at https://www.avongrove.org/agtv/commencement.
