Cake or cookies? 

Cheesy potatoes or Mac N’ Cheese?

Masks or hand sanitizer?

The class of 2020 had to consider many options when planning their graduation parties. Due to COVID-19, many seniors changed their party to ensure a safe gathering. 

Senior Joseph Burke made the decision to push his party back until Aug. 2. “(We are) hoping some restrictions are let up by then so we can have a normal party,” he said. 

Other seniors like Zachary Stratton and Parker Kluesner decided to keep the party as normal as they could, while also social distancing. 

“We are offering to-go boxes if anyone doesn’t feel comfortable staying,” Stratton said. 

Brooke Drabek made the decision to not have a graduation party at all. “We didn’t think that the restrictions would be lifted enough for us to feel safe.”

Graduate Miah Winkowitsch decided she would have a card party. 

“People can send me cards, gifts, and/or memories!” Winkowitsch said.
