They’re outta here.

But first they stopped to get their diplomas, as the Coupeville High School Class of 2021 graduated Friday night.

The photos above and below, which capture a variety of Wolves as they celebrate their big moment, come to us courtesy Eileen Stone.

One day from graduation. Time to hit the streets of Coupeville for the Class of 2021. (Photos by JohnsPhotos.net)

In a year of upheaval, one tradition remains untouched.

The Coupeville High School Class of 2021 took to the streets of Cow Town Thursday for the annual Senior parade.

Wanderin’ photo whiz kid John Fisken was on hand to snap images as the Wolves moved one step closer to graduation.

Can’t tell the graduates without a scorecard.

So here you go, ready to be laminated — the Coupeville High School Class of 2021.

Every name matters, but one stands above them all for me.

Aria Bowen is the final reminder of my 12-year run behind the counter at Videoville from 1994-2006.

The same counter where a lil’ Aria took naps in her carrier while I jabbered about movies, her older sister Mekare built modern art sculptures back at the block table, and their mom, Dea, served up Miriam’s Espresso drinks.

So she gets three photos and a lot of the rest of you grads-to-be maybe don’t get one in this story.

You’ll survive, and still graduate.

Then you can go build a time machine, travel back to when Videoville rented 500 VHS tapes on a Friday night in Cow Town, and plop your own baby tush on our counter.

And, having bent time and space, you can act all surprised when, magically, it’s suddenly you getting three photos in a 2021 graduation story.

Simple really.

“Let’s dance!” (Photo property Paramount Pictures)

They’re going Footloose in Cow Town.

No word yet if Kevin Bacon will make an appearance, but Coupeville High School parents are planning their own, non-school Prom for two weeks after graduation.

It goes down Saturday, June 26th at 8 PM at Mile Post 19 Farm (18997 SR 20).

There will be a DJ, food, and bonfire, with a King, Queen, and court announced.

CHS has not held any dances during the 2020-2021 school year because of the ongoing pandemic.

The press release from senior moms:

Prom has not been cancelled for our JR’s and Seniors!

An event will be hosted on June 26th (Non school related.)

Our kids deserve this. But the community will need to volunteer and get involved.

Destination is in place and DJ already reserved. We will need to come together to make this great for our children.

Please message Stephanie Grimm Streitler (360-622-6059) if you want to join us in making this happen.

Also please no negative comments as our hearts are in it for the right reason. ❤️
