Dear Class of 2020 Project
Reflect and connect with fellow seniors from across the country who’ve been going through the same Class of 2020 experience.
Dear Class of 2020, You’ve worked hard to get to graduation. You deserve not only to be celebrated, but also to participate in a quintessential rite of passage.
We know how creative you are. We’re asking you to help us find the words, take the photos, produce the videos, so that no one forgets the resilience you’ve shown over the last 13 years, especially the last 4 months.
What are your hopes and fears? Tell us how you’re feeling.
Here are three options to channel your spirit and ingenuity. Choose one or do them all!
Option 1 – Post a Message in the XQ Forum. Reply with a brief (or long) message in our Forum. You can also simply share amazing student examples you find online.
Option 2 – Post a Photo on Instagram. Post a photo on Instagram, write a “Dear Class of 2020…” caption, and use #GraduateTogether and tag @XQAmerica.
Option 3 – Post a Video on YouTube. Upload a “Dear Class of 2020…” video to YouTube with a brief description; remember to use #GraduateTogether and tag @XQAmerica.
You’re not alone. To produce your video, team up with other students. Students who have a lot to say and can write. Students who have been collecting and archiving photos and video clips throughout the year. Students who have video editing and tech skills. Students you just want to share this experience with.
This is the time to connect and reflect.
This is the time to #GraduateTogether
The day Kate’s senior year was canceled, she submitted this photo and reflection for @XQAmerica to post on Instagram.
Lauren can’t help but express how she feels, not only as a high school student but, more important, as a speaker during these times of need.
Iggy needed to post “something that kids my age need to hear.”
Alex just decided to do something because she knows how many others are feeling the same.On May 17, 2020 at 10:42 pm by Alfred Solis
Dear class of 2020 I know it’s hard but we can do this. It is our time. All over the world it’s more and more complicated but if we see just the negative side of things what’s the point. We can’t give up just because we didn’t habe a graduation dosen’t mean we didn’t graduate so be happy you made it.
