The Village joins Skokie school districts in celebrating the achievements of all Skokie students who are graduating from eighth grade, high school and college in spring 2020 during the Week of the Graduate, Class of 2020 that begins on May 18.

Graduates, send your photo to along with your name (first or first and last) and the school from which you are graduating. For high school and college seniors, please let us know your plans for after you graduate. The photos will be posted in a new section of the Skokie Spirit Shines Through webpage

Community members are encouraged to head out to your front porch or come to the front lawn on Wednesday, May 20 at 8:20 p.m. (20:20 in military time) to "Make Some Noise for the Class of 2020": sing your favorite song, bang some pots and pans, and give the Class of 2020 the round of applause that they deserve.

Also on May 20, schools will turn on their lights from 8 to 9 p.m. to "light up the night" for the Class of 2020. The community is encouraged to join this effort by participating in the Skokie Lights the Night campaign that takes place at 8:30 p.m. each Wednesday when residents are asked to include a light in their window (no candles, please). See more information on Skokie Lights the Night from the Skokie Public Library.
