While it was not the ceremony the community had in mind, it was the best day the staff and students had since the coronavirus shutdown in March. The 2020 eighth-grade class at PS/MS 146 enjoyed the school’s first-ever drive-by graduation outside the school on Monday, June 22, after a virtual one online.

One-by-one, each family drove to the school and popped out for their diploma and a quick pic with Principal Mary Keegan, right, here with class Valedictorian Joy Mazzola. The teachers and staff greeted each and every graduate as each walked down the block.

National Junior Honor Society graduates Christopher Dalton, top left, and Emily Hansen, top right, were the winners of the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club awards for 2020.
