On Saturday, June 20, 2020, Malden Catholic High School held a carnival-style Rolling Rally event for the Class of 2020. Life-size cutouts of each MC senior lined the athletic field fence and greeted the cars filled with Seniors and the family members along with a bubble machine, confetti cannons, a live DJ and cheers from over 50 members of the faculty and staff. Each senior was able to exit their car to take a socially distanced photograph with Headmaster Thornburg and Principal Brother Puccio. Students also received a gift box filled with the academic and athletic awards they had earned over the year, honorary distinction cords, a graduation cap, an engraved commemorative silver-framed photo of the school, a Lancer Nation t-shirt and a flower for their mother.
According to Headmaster John Thornburg, “This was a spectacular way to honor the achievements of our Seniors. It is just one of many ways in which we have been delighted to celebrate our students’ four years at Malden Catholic and we look forward to the full graduation ceremony on August 1.”
Malden Catholic plans to host a traditional graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Saturday, August 1, 2020 on the football field. This event will follow all state and health requirements in place at that time to ensure the health and safety of all involved.
