Boulder Country Day eighth-graders Zoom to graduation
June 3, 2020
On the beautifully sunny morning of Friday, May 22, Boulder Country Day School celebrated the graduation of their eighth-grade students in a unique way. Families, including loved ones living far and near, joined a graduation on Zoom, where speeches were made, students celebrated, and promotion awarded. Students and their families then came to campus and lined the parking lot facing toward the school, spaced in accordance with social distancing guidelines. The ceremony was performed from the front lawn by loudspeaker by Head of School John Suitor. From their cars, often poking out of sunroofs, the graduates enjoyed stories from their years spent at BCD. To close the event, each student was called forward to receive a diploma and other tokens of celebration. As the families exited the parking lot, they were waved off by teachers and other BCD families lined up along Nautilus Court as they drove through their final carline at BCD. While different, it was a spectacular morning that no one will forget.
