This spring Butler Junior High 8th graders were celebrated in a different way than past graduations.
Graduation was highlighted in a video stream featuring much of the same format as past graduations – speeches by the principal, student leaders, superintendent and board president; announcements of award winners and words of wisdom from staff, and the Butler Junior High Band playing Pomp & Circumstance.
Here are the videos and links related to graduation:
* The Graduation Video Stream – video of virtual graduation ceremony
* The Graduation Slideshow – photos and memories of graduates,
* The Graduation Program – the traditional booklet announcing the names of graduates and the order of the ceremony,
* The Eighth Grade Awards Program – a video program featuring speeches by teachers and sponsors and announcement of award winners,
The celebrations were online because of state restrictions that closed schools from March 16 through the end of the school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
