High School is a time that many of us look back on and smile, and a lot of those fond memories revolve around tradition. While this has certainly been a nontraditional year, we did our best to keep those time-honored ceremonies alive by moving them online for all of our students.
Senior Signing Day
Typically, our Seniors sign a bulletin board outside of the guidance office announcing their future plans, but this year we created a video of our students announcing their future college and career plans. We know the Class of 2020 will go on to do great things!
Our students look forward to this event every year, so we decided the show must go on! Instead of performing in front of a live audience, our students recorded performances for the pop music concert that then aired on YouTube.
The Class of 2020 was honored during the annual Awards Breakfast, but this time from the comfort of their own homes. The June 5th ceremony went virtual as a way to keep the tradition going.
Field Day is a day of fun and physical activity that students look forward to every year. Physical education teachers at Lincoln School kept the tradition alive by sending students and their families directions and videos on more than 20 activities that could be done at home. Students competed against their families in games like clothes hamper racing, cup stacking, and table ping pong.
Virtual Art Walk
Art teamed up with technology in a springtime showcase that offered a virtual reality “walk” through a gallery of student work, plus an invitation for students to hang actual art in the windows of their Rutherford homes. Together, those initiatives formed “Weekend of the Arts,” a clever re-imagination of the typical art shows that close out the school year.
Staff members came together via video to recognize our student athletes from winter and spring sports.
