2021 graduate at the Mount Rainier High School graduation.

It was the graduation celebration the Class of 2021 hoped for... in-person and with their classmates. After more than 15 months apart in remote or hybrid learning, the Class of 2021 was made whole again. Seniors came together in person for the first time since before the pandemic to celebrate the end of high school.
