Planning for the 2020 Commencement ceremony was a dynamic process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Several links below contain the messages distributed to students and their families in the months leading up to the event which ultimately took place online on August 2, 2020.
This event also celebrated the students who earned scholastic and activity honors during the 2019-20 academic year by distributing the Honors Day Convocation program.
