PCM High School

Graduation Ceremony

High School Graduation is set for May 23rd at 2:00 pm. After careful consideration, the decision has been made to live-stream the ceremony because there is still a pandemic occurring. The decision to live-stream may change in future years for graduation and will be examined on a year-to-year basis. Graduation practice will be held on Wednesday, May 19th at 9am. More information about graduation will be provided to seniors in the near future.

Last Day of School

Our last day of school with students will be Friday, May 28th. On May 28th, there will be a 2-hour early dismissal. (This still leaves us with over 10 additional hours in case of late starts or a May snow day.)
