The 190 members of the class of 2012 will take part in Weston High School’s 42nd annual commencement excerises on Thursday, June 21.
The graduation ceremony is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. under a tent between the high school and the intermediate school — just south of the Booster Barn — rain or shine.
The graduating seniors and their families and friends will be welcomed by Sarah Schwartz, Student Council co-president. Graduate Charlotte Berger was chosen by her peers to give the student address.
Other student speakers include Class President Jessica Riley, Class Secretary Hanna Silver, Class Treasurer Joshua Hyatt and Student Council Co-President Brian Lamy, who will offer closing remarks.
Honored at the ceremony will be Valedictorian Samantha Briggs and Salutatorian Lisa Maddox.
Weston High School English teacher Damian Long was chosen to give this year’s faculty address. Principal Lisa Wolak will also speak.
The high school band will perform, and a musical piece will be performed by William Richling, Charlotte Roth, and Tess Maggio.
Parents and guests are urged to arrive with plenty of time before the ceremony begins, as parking will be limited. (See map on page 15A.) Guests will not be allowed to “save seats” — any markers, signs, or items left to do so will be immediately removed.
School Road will be closed to most vehicles between the middle school and the entrance to the intermediate school. Police will be stationed at checkpoints to let through graduates, faculty, and those who require handicapped parking.
Graduates will be allowed to park in the normal student parking lot in the back section of the lot directly across from the high school; faculty may park in the section of the same parking lot closest to the school.
Handicap parking will be available. Those wishing to park in the handicapped lot must make reservations. Call Anne Graham at the high school, 203-291-1600.
For the general public, parking is available in the middle school parking lot and the intermediate school parking lot until the lots are filled. Once they are filled, motorists may park in the lot at Hurlbutt Elementary School and at the central office/town hall annex buildings.
A shuttle bus will be available to and from the farther parking lots and the tent.
