schools celebrate joyful graduations in distinct methods. Bridgewater Courier News EDISON-Horns blared all around the township, from the southside near Edison High School up Route 27 to the northside near J.P. Stevens High School. Police cars and fire trucks roared sirens and put on light programs. Citizens were encouraged to bang pots and pans and yell as loud as possible.
A small plane even flew by Edison High School with a banner bearing well-wishes. Considering that the trainees couldn't go to the pomp and circumstance of graduation, the pomp and scenario pertained to them.
Tuesday afternoon's graduations, in the middle of a pandemic, differed from any other. Instead of al fresco speeches and roomy walks for diplomas on a charming late spring day, the area's 2 public high schools held virtual ceremonies on YouTube Premieres. While there is still expect outside graduations in late July, innovation replaced the planned events.
Certainly not perfect for the life milestone, but one thing has been apparent during the three-month quarantine– students and school personnel have revealed resourcefulness and resilience. Not surprisingly, Tuesday included lots of hooting and shrieking from happy relative with some twists throughout the day.
Graduation should go on.
