The work of teachers became appreciated on a whole new level.
Spring 2020 Class Picture- COVID-Style!
CJHS Admins led efforts to distribute more than 1300 Chromebooks to students during this time.
Students ended the year with "drive-thru" goodbyes to teachers.
Conway High School Seniors celebrated their graduation with a virtual ceremony.
No one in the Conway Public School District- administrators, teachers, support staff, students, or parents- EVER imagined that March 13, 2020 would be the last in-person day of school for the 2019-20 school year.
The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States and subsequent effects of the global pandemic here in Conway, Arkansas were tremendous. CPSD schools were closed to onsite instruction for the remainder of the year, forcing district and school leaders to create plans for virtual learning. Teachers worked creatively and collaboratively to reach and teach their students while at home. We are incredibly proud of the amazing efforts of our faculty and staff during this time.
"If I was asked to describe my fellow classmates in just one word, it would be resilient. It may appear that I chose this word because we are graduating during a global pandemic, a circumstance which no doubt my fellow classmates have taken in stride. But no, I chose this descriptor because of every moment - both big and small - that has shaped my high school experience. The moments in classrooms when a seemingly impossible problem is solved or a student debate ends in new understanding. The moments in the hallways or in the courtyard when students actively choose kindness and generosity. I see it at Wampus Cat sporting events, in the relentless will of the players and the continuous cheering of the crowd.
But most importantly, I see resilience in the everyday student. The student who refuses to give up on a hard class or a difficult semester. The student who goes to class every day with a positive attitude despite the battles they may fight in secret. The student who soaks up every opportunity Conway High School has to offer. The student who would make any Wampus Cat proud.
These students are the Class of 2020.
Every single person in this graduating class possesses the ultimate key to success: the courage to try and fail, the resilience to keep moving forward."
