Virtual Graduation Ideas
Many events around the world have been canceled or postponed due to the pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19). One of these milestone events was graduation, which has left many soon to be graduates and their families disappointed.
The most significant milestone in every school is graduation and commencement ceremonies. Seniors missing out on this experience is earth-shattering.
For this reason, Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys wants to share a few ideas on how you can celebrate your graduate that was not able to walk with their cap and gown to get their diploma this year during this COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis:
- Virtual Party – You can make everyone dress up and invite them to a virtual party through an app, like Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc. This is a great way to celebrate your graduate while still practicing social distancing.
- Video Tribute – You can have friends and family record video messages for your graduating student. You can compile all the separate videos into one.
- Senior Spotlight – Most families do this currently, however, you could connect with other senior parents and post “Get to Know Your Senior” posts each day for your school
- Home Graduation – You can also host your graduation at home without passing the number of people allowed to gather in one place. You can then join the others through video chat.
- Themed Graduation Photoshoots – You can get creative with the grad photos. You can pick a theme, build a backdrop, create props, etc.
- Create A Hashtag – The graduating class can create a hashtag and start posting their favorite school memories over social media for all to see.
- Graduation Wish List – The graduate can create a wish list of gifts he/she wants. Then the file can be shared with family and friends. That way, they get a chance to get a gift that will feel meaningful. In addition to that, when the gifts arrive, you can hide them around the house so the graduate will have to go find them, scavenger hunt style. This will be something fun to do for the graduate in his/her day.
No matter how graduation is celebrated, being together during this time, supporting one another is the most important.
