Each year, the Maine Coast Waldorf School celebrates the 12th grade students who have grown up in our community, some for almost their entire lives. Students enter separately to music they have selected and are each introduced by a faculty member. Each student then stands up in front of their peers, family, teachers, and wider community to speak about an experience, lesson, or theme from their education. The ceremony celebrates the unique individuals that compose the class, highlighting these common roots as these young people go forth to make their own way into the world.
This year’s graduation will happen as planned for the 12th grade and their families – albeit not as anyone had imagined graduation was going to happen! The event will be live-streamed because, due to gathering restrictions, only 12th grade parents are able to attend the ceremony.
Congratulations to the Maine Coast Waldorf School Class of 2020!
