A MESSAGE TO OUR STUDENTS

MAHS Key Club Highlights 2019-2020


IMPORTANT CLOSURE INFORMATION UPDATED 5/27/2020 – 11:55 am

2020 GRADUATION

Dear Members of the Class of 2020,

It is that time of year where we celebrate your accomplishments and achievements at Montoursville Area High School.  As you feel anger over what the pandemic has taken from you, take some time to reflect on everything positive around you in life and what you have contributed to life.  You will have a ceremony at some point to celebrate you.  We all hope for an in-person graduation, but if that ends up not possible, we have back-up plans.  Normally this letter has all of the dates and times of finals and practices.  Most of that is not included this year.  Again, feelings of anger may come forth except for maybe taking finals.

Class of 2020 Schedule of Events

June 4th  @ 7:00 pm                              
Awards Ceremony by Invitation – YouTube Live Event*
June 5th   @ 7:00 pm                              
Conferring of Diplomas – YouTube Live Event*

GRADUATION CEREMONY – TBD

If we have not had a real ceremony by July 7, 2020, alternate plans will be announced.  We do not want to hold a different type of ceremony and find out a week later we could have had the real thing.

“Some days, doing the best we can may still fall short of what we would like to be able to do, but life isn’t perfect on any front-and doing what we can with what we have is the most we should expect of ourselves or anybody else.” – Mr. Rogers

I always include a statement that graduation is ABOUT you, not for you.  This year it will be FOR YOU.  It is the greatest celebration of academics we have in school, and it should be respected regardless of the setting.  Graduation is for your school and your teachers, your family, but most importantly this year, FOR YOU.  Keep that in mind as you anticipate the possibility of not having a normal graduation.  The quote above has been shared with the faculty every week since this started.  I thought it appropriate to share with the Class of 2020 as it reflects what Warriors do.  We are going to do the best we can for you.

Let us be the first to congratulate you on one of what we hope are many accomplishments in your life.
