Graduation May 29: In-Person and Livestreamed

The last stretch of the 2021 school year is fast approaching. Seniors are anticipating that final bell, that last test and being able to walk across that oh-so- important stage. With only a few weeks left in normal schooling before finals, graduation plans, prom and senior-send off are almost at the doorstep for seniors. 

This year, Covid-19 rules abiding, graduating seniors can have two family members or guests present. Graduation will be held in the same place as years before, the Triton Center at Notre Dame.

I am very excited to be seeing a traditional graduation this year, even in the face of all the difficulties thrown at us. Next year I’m looking forward to a more open event,” said Principal Patrick Browne. 

 One of the best things about this year is the fact the graduation will be livestreamed. Family members that cannot attend graduation in person, such as grandparents and other relatives, can watch the seniors walk across the stage from the safety of home. 

Saturday, May 29, is a day that all seniors are anticipating. Mass will precede graduation ceremonies and will be led by the Bishop of the Green Bay Diocese, Bishop David Ricken. 

Science teacher Andrea Hearden will serve as moderator for the commencement ceremony, and,  as in pre-Covid traditional style, two seniors will speak as representatives of the class.
