COVID-19 closures have meant a lot of different things for the Class of 2020.

When mourning the “loss of our senior year,” big-ticket events like spring sports, a traditional honors assembly, Mayfete and senior prom are what typically come to mind — yet these are just the tip of the cancellation iceberg. Countless activities, ceremonies and competitions will not be occurring this year, and while we’ve all been affected quite differently, the overarching sentiment is the same: “This kinda sucks.”

But, collectively, we’re trying to find a way to be okay with it. We’re moving forward as best we can. Because despite the fact that we’re physically distanced (and may receive our graduation diplomas via PDF), we’re still the legendary Class of 2020.

So, in an effort to bring us all a little closer together, and in an effort to recognize some of our musical classmates’ incredible talent one last time, we’ve compiled some performances dedicated specifically to this amazing class (and to all of the teachers, family, and friends that helped us get to where we are today). 

We hope you enjoy!
