Parent Guide to Commencement Weekend

Although a little snow is visible around campus and temperatures are still chilly, we can be assured that great planning is underway for Commencement Weekend and that campus will be in full bloom as our seniors process down Academy Lane on Sunday, May 24th, 2015. The Administration is busy making sure all the plans are finalized and that there is much to enjoy throughout the weekend.

Following the great success of last year’s Friday night dinner, organized by the Deerfield Parent’s Network, for parents and graduates, the weekend kicks off with the Graduation Dinner Dance for all parents and graduates under the tent at the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Hall just down the road at 10 Memorial Street in Historic Deerfield. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents and graduates to celebrate as a class and enjoy a delicious dinner, dancing and slideshow that is sure to bring a few laughs and tears.
