We’ve put together a few resources that will help you prepare for this year’s Commencement. Along with Zoom backgrounds, word bubbles, cutouts, and a congratulatory poster, you will also find templates for personalized announcements. We have included one with a typed “student name” so that you can edit the PDF to your needs, and one left blank in case you prefer to print and hand-write.
