  • Graduation Car Processional for the Class of 2020

    On May 24, SBS held a graduation car-processional to celebrate the hard work and determination of the class of 2020. For the celebration, the school invited seniors and their families to decorate their cars, show school spirit, and parade through campus. Seniors were driven up Chapman Parkway to the cheers of the school community, including faculty, staff, and dorm parents. 
     
    We’re extremely proud of the class of 2020 and want to honor them while also maintaining social distancing protocol,” said Director of Upper School Kris Ryan. “Our seniors have been looking forward to this day for a long time, and we are excited to provide them with an opportunity to celebrate all that they have accomplished together.”
     
    Because some of the senior class was unable to attend due to distance, the school ordered large cardboard cutouts of the students’ faces to use during the procession. The faculty or staff advisor of each absent student paraded their likeness up Champan Parkway to the cheers of their community. The event was also live streamed so those unable to attend can watch in real time, and can be found here.
     
    After the procession, cars then drove onto the softball field to hear a brief address from Head of School Joshua Crane.

    We are so proud of our seniors and hope to celebrate more officially, in person, in August! More photos to come.
