McGraw High School Principal Mark Dimorier plans a yard sign Thursday while talking with Maverick Stafford at his home on West Avenue in McGraw. School administrators and staff paraded around the community visting graduating seniors and presenting them gifts.

More than 20 cars took part in a caravan parade Thursday morning in McGraw to celebrate graduating seniors at McGraw High School.

The cars, driven by school teachers and staff, followed a school bus where Mark Dimorier, the high school’s principal, and other administrative staff presented gifts to the 34 graduating seniors throughout the village. The gifts included:

  • A yard sign with the senior’s portrait.
  • Yearbooks.
  • Goodie bags.
  • Special mementos from teachers.

Dimorier said that this was a good way to celebrate and bring a little joy to the seniors whom he has not seen in nearly two months.

“A school is not a school without children,” he said before the caravan began. “I hope they get something out of it and enjoy it because since March 18, they have really missed out.”
