PPS Holds Commencements
Posted on 08/07/2020
This is the image for the news article titled PPS Holds CommencementsCommencement exercises for approximately 500 seniors from Portland, Deering and Casco Bay high schools took place on Aug. 5 and 6 at drive-in ceremonies at Ocean Gateway. 

The ceremonies were delayed two months and held at the outdoor venue due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But Mother Nature provided dry, sunny weather, there were inspirational speeches by students and staff – with car honks standing in for applause – and students wearing masks safely received their diplomas. Portland’s fireboat also provided a water salute for graduates.

Aug. 5 marked Portland High School’s 199th Commencement. Watch and learn more about the ceremony.

Deering High School held its 146th Commencement on Aug. 6. Watch and learn more

Aug. 6 was also the date of Casco Bay High School’s 12th Commencement exercise. Watch and learn more
