Below is a summary of important dates, times, and events for seniors and their families. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Derek Hamilton at dhamilton@pittsfieldnhschools.org.

  • The last official school day for seniors is Friday, May 29. On Friday, May 29, we will be collecting all school issued materials (devices, textbooks, etc.) from seniors between 9:00-2:00 p.m. at Pittsfield Middle High School. At that time seniors will also have the opportunity to pick up their caps and gowns, yard signs, and yearbooks (if they are available).
  • The Senior Awards Ceremony will take place on Friday, June 5, at 6:00 p.m. The ceremony will be held virtually as a Zoom webinar. We will share the webinar link to families via School Messenger on June 4, it will be posted here on the school website, and it will be shared on social media for friends, family members, and other community members to join us.
  • On Saturday, June 6, all graduating seniors will have the opportunity to have photographs taken at Pittsfield Middle High School in their graduation regalia with up to six family members. A professional photographer will be on site from 8:00-4:30 p.m. to take photographers. Each senior will be assigned a fifteen minute time slot during which they will pick up certificates, medallions, and other awards, and have an opportunity to take photographs in their graduation regalia.
  • Also, on Saturday, June 6, all graduating seniors are invited to participate in a celebratory parade starting at 5:00 p.m. The parade will be limited to one vehicle per senior. Family members may be present in the vehicle with the senior, but seniors may not share vehicles. We encourage seniors to decorate your vehicles for the parade. Vehicles may start lining up on Bow Street at Pittsfield Elementary School at 4:30 p.m. The parade will depart from Bow Street at 5:00 p.m. and follow the Old Home Day route, which goes through Clark Street (by the Town Pool), down Main Street, to Elm and Depot Street, and will proceed down Catamount Road. The parade will end on Oneida Street at Pittsfield Middle High School.
