Schuyler R-1 held their graduation ceremony on Saturday, July 11, 2020, at the school’s football field with family, friends, and residents in attendance. Once the coronavirus pandemic shut down the school year across the nation, everything changed. But thanks to parents and school organizations, many senior year tradit=ions and events were reinvented.
And finally – Graduation Day. Diplomas were handed out. Scholarships awarded. Tassels switched to the opposite side to show the whole world they graduated. And last, but best, and maybe even the oldest tradition, had the grads tossing their hats high in the air. The end of twelve years of school and the beginning of a new adventure. Good luck to all of our Schuyler grads.
