PTHS Seniors Reach the Finish Line (5-28-21)

The Penn-Trafford School District celebrated its ‘Class of 2021’ at the conclusion of a very challenging and unpredictable year.  On the morning of May 26, members of Penn-Trafford’s Senior Class participated in a car decorating event at Warrior Stadium.  Cars were adorned in preparation for that evening’s Senior Parade.  The decorating activity was sponsored by the school’s Student Union, the Media & Literacy Interns, and Active Minds Club.  In addition to breakfast treats, each student received green and gold balloons, streamers, and other decorating supplies.  Students were encouraged to bring additional items in their college or military colors. 

“Even though the weather didn’t fully cooperate, the event was a success,” said teacher Ms. Kathy Kelly-Garris.  “Students had a great time decorating and enjoying each other’s company for one of their last events as the Class of 2021.”

That evening at 6:00, the parade began under a drizzling sky.  The rain didn’t damper the spirits of the seniors or their spectators.  A long line of student cars was joined by police and fire department vehicles.  The parade started at St. Barbara’s Church, wound through Municipal Park, and then circled the High School.  

“The parade was really fun and it meant a lot that so many people in the community came out even though it was thundering and lightning 20-minutes before. That shows what a great community we live in,” said Senior Allie Prady.

Senior Madison Suman agreed, saying “The parade was such a good experience seeing the entire community come together and celebrate an amazing senior class.”

Penn-Trafford’s graduation ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 27, 2021.
