New Trier: Class of 2020 Update Video From Denise Dubravec

  • Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2020

    I appreciate your patience as we have planned, created back-up plans, and created back-up plans to the back-up plans to honor our spectacular senior class. While they have always been foremost in my thoughts, I also understand that many of you are eager for more details about some of the ways in which New Trier will be honoring the Class of 2020 in addition to the commencement options we have already shared.

    I sent all of our seniors this VIDEO through their Canvas accounts today so they know we are definitely thinking of them and planning ways to honor them from afar. I encourage you to watch it as well. In it, I talk about banners and more banners, personalized yard/window signs, a very special tribute video, a virtual prom on May 16, the Destinations edition of the New Trier News, a virtual seniors' last day, and an update on commencement. Many of these plans have taken shape in partnership with our parent groups: the NTPA, NT Fine Arts Association, and NT Booster Club.

    Thank you for all the ideas you have shared with me on ways to make these final weeks of high school special for our seniors, even in these trying times. I have appreciated your support throughout the past four years, and I look forward to all the upcoming special recognition events we have planned for our amazing seniors!
