Mazal Tov Class of 2020


Mazal Tov!

Please enjoy the final production of our Live Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony. We hope those who joined us live were thrilled to celebrate our graduates with us, and that this video helps everyone who couldn't be there with us to be a part of the celebration.

We also invite you to share in the excitement of our Car Parade, during which our graduates had the chance to drive through the parking garage one last time. Delight in the joy of our graduates as they complete their final drive through the parking garage, having entered as students and emerged as alumni! Mazal Tov!
For those families who join us for the optional photography session, please enjoy these wonderful Class of 2020 Graduation Photos, courtesy of Meka Tome '16, our school photographer. Click here to access an online folder of the images, where you may download the hi-res files. In addition to Meka's wonderful work, our school graphic designer, Kim Huelsman, retouched and edited several images, including some of those submitted by families who were unable to attend the optional photography sessions. Those edited images are also available in this folder. Mazal Tov!
