The PTSA recently held an outdoor social event for seniors. This event was focused on handing out class of 2021 yard signs to seniors and providing a social environment with a DJ, raffles, and games. The event was split up into two afternoons to limit the number of students. At this event, a new tradition is started with the senior handprint banner. Students could put their handprints on a banner that will be hung at prom and graduation. 

“We wanted to make sure that our seniors get something special,” President of the PTSA board Amy Puffer said. “Because of not being in school, we want them to have a chance to meet their fellow classmates. This is their one chance for them to see each other before graduation.”

Due to the pandemic, seniors have not been able to attend typical senior traditions that previous classes have had before. The PTSA has been trying to hold events for seniors within COVID-19  safety measures in order to give seniors a sense of normalcy. 

“We have received 100% positive feedback from parents and seniors,” Puffer said. “They are just grateful to have some events this year since seniors could not have any events last year for obvious reasons.” 

Even with the current situation, PTSA members want seniors to celebrate the end of their senior year. 

Seniors will have more end-of-the-year celebrations such as senior road trips and graduation. These events will be done following COVID-19  safety precautions. For more information about these events, visit this link or the announcements column on Metea Media’s homepage.
