GRADUATION
THE CLASS OF 2020 RISES!
TUESDAY, JUNE 2
Graduation will be held on Tuesday, June 2nd at the Campo. This will be a hybrid event, allowing the students to walk in small, distanced groups to receive their diplomas, while live streaming video to share with family and friends. The guidelines from the county are strict, so the event will be a blend of pre-recorded and live activities. Speeches and musical selections
will be pre-recorded; however, on the day of graduation, students will come to campus in their
caps and gowns at assigned times to walk across the stage, hear pomp and circumstance and receive their diplomas. Social-distancing regulations will be followed to ensure safety. There will not be any crowds in the stands, but we can watch all of the graduates via a live webcast or a recorded version to be released later.

MORE DETAILS TO COME, BUT PLEASE SAVE THE
DATE TO HONOR OUR GRADUATES! EVENT WILL LIKELY RUN 9AM-3PM WITH TIME SLOT TO ARRIVE FOR ALPHABETICAL GROUPS OF STUDENTS TBA. Please see Principal Walker's full announcement about graduation: Commencement Announcement to Class of 2020.

CAMPO STRONG “C”HEER ON
FRIDAY, MAY 29
6:00 PM
As our seniors finish the last day of high school on May 29th, we do not want to let this day pass without great celebration and acknowledgement! We are asking the entire Lamorinda community to come outside at 6:00pm to CHEER! CHEER for our seniors! CHEER for the end of May! CHEER for hope and for gratitude! Please spread the word to friends, family and
neighbors - we want to make this big and make this loud!

CAMPO “ROCKS!”
CAMPO "ROCKS" - Drop them at Campo by May 25th! You may have seen the COVID painted rocks placed around town with pictures and messages of inspiration. We want to create a Campo Rocks collection on campus to show our spirit, support and love for our School, Class of 2020, Teachers, Admin, Sports Teams, etc. SPREAD THE WORD!

Get a mid-size river rock (available at Diamond K in Lafayette or there are some available at the
bottom of the driveway at 92 Hardie Drive, Moraga (please take just 1-3 rocks each). Here is a link to some samples to inspire you! They can be as simple or elaborate as you want. When you finish, drop them in the bark area to the right of the front circle for display (a few have arrived already - thank you!). They will stay here through the end of the school year, but then will find a permanent home at Campo to always memorialize the strength we all had during this time! We hope to have the biggest, most inspirational rock garden around! #CampoStrong

LEADERSHIP SUPPORT
Campo’s leadership class has been putting together videos of senior class footage.

Senior Teaser Video
They would love more video of any sports or event from seniors for the next couple videos.
Please forward footage to: owen.lekki21@auhsdschools.org
They are also organizing slide shows of senior sports, orchestra and musicals for each activity.
They have done Boys Lacrosse and Boys Baseball, and Swimming is forthcoming, but other spring sports should send pics to camryn.sullivan20@auhsdschools.org. If you want to see a sample, please check out @campo.sports.and.activities on Instagram.

CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OUR “C”OMMUNITY
IPAD/TABLET DRIVE TO HELP CONNECT ISOLATED SENIOR CITIZENS: Collecting through May 25th - Lamorinda Village, a local nonprofit created by older adults and supported by volunteers is collecting used iPads and tablets to give to seniors. During this time,  e want to make sure the older adults in our community are connected and not isolated as we all Shelter in
Place. We are hoping to help seniors who do not have access to these devices learn to Zoom to
connect with their loved ones and to activities that we are hosting to keep them engaged. If you
have any old devices collecting dust, please drop them off at 22 Kellie Ann Court in Orinda or 88
Shuey Drive, Moraga.
