The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many cancellations all over the area that include Memorial Day services, 4th of July events and of course high school graduations.
Our Lady of Hope/St. Luke Catholic School in Dundalk was no exception as the school had to cancel its traditional farewell services for its 8th grade students.
Many students have been at the school for over a decade as they started pre-school at OLHSL.
Longtime school principal Sister Irene Pryle wanted to make sure this year’s 8th graders had a memorable exit, in spite of the cancellation of the school year.
Pryle and other teachers went to the homes of the eighth graders and presented each student with a gift.
“Sr. Irene, our Middle School Teachers, Mr. T, and Mrs. P visited all 24 8th Grade Students delivering signs, yearbooks, and lots of cheers,” said a statement on the school’s Facebook page.
“We are so proud of our 8th Graders and wish them all the best! We know that they will “Let their STAR shine!” In everything they do! Let’s hear it for our 8th Grade Students!”
