Celebrating Our Class of 2020

Ideas for Recognizing our Seniors

Dear Seniors and Familes,

Everything about this spring has been both challenging and unprecedented, with a daunting overnight transition, to boot. Not easy. With whatever tools you've had at your command, you've sought ways to stay engaged, learning, and feeling connected, often while juggling your own family needs.

With the end of the school year approaching, a new challenge remains: how do celebrate and recognize our Class of 2020 in a way that is special and memorable.

With the news from Governor Baker on April 21st that schools will remain closed until June 29th, we began working with your class officers, advisors and the TMHS PAC regarding the end of the year events including graduation. While we know the end of the year will be different for everyone, please know that we are making every effort to make it a memorable experience for the Class of 2020 and your families. This is unprecedented and we need to be flexible and creative during this most unusual time. With that being said, we have made every effort to include many, if not all, of the traditions and aspects of end of year events and most importantly, your graduation ceremony. And our hearts break for you.

The amount of character, growth, kindness, and personality this class has exhibited over the past four years has been and will continue to be amazing. We are exceptionally proud of their resilience, gratitude and patience.

Thank you for your understanding and support during this difficult and unprecedented time. We will continue to be here for all of you.

Senior Get Togethers and One Year Reunion!

Our hope is that some of the restrictions will be lifted during the summer months so that we can provide an opportunity for the senior class to come together in cap and gowns for some food, photos and to sign each other’s yearbooks! We will also plan a faculty breakfast the Wednesday of Thanksgiving for seniors to come back to TMHS and spend time with their teachers. The seniors are also planning to have a one year reunion next spring as a way for them to be together and celebrate!
