Graduation 2018 News

Graduation for the Class of 2018 will be held at the PGHS Athletic Field on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at 9:00 a.m.  Should inclement weather prevent conducting the exercises outside on June 16, 2018, then Graduation would be moved inside the Prince George High School Gymnasium, with each student allocated three tickets for parents/guardians to attend. The district would not allow overflow in the Auditorium or Student Commons area due to Fire Marshall recommendations for building occupancy. Patrons who do not have tickets may observe Graduation Exercises online at home or where they could obtain computer access.  Both Convocation and Graduation will be broadcast live from links found at http://trnwired.org or http://pgtvnews.org; and from http://pgs.k12.va.us.  Also, DVD’s of the event would be available to purchase with all proceeds going to the broadcast journalism program.


Two other important occasions provide seniors the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments and are wonderful events to share with family and friends.  Baccalaureate Services will be Saturday, June 9, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at the Union Branch Baptist Church.  Convocation will be held on Sunday, June 10, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. in the PGHS gymnasium.  The graduation ceremony and various events surrounding the final exercises are the embodiment of student preparation for adulthood and higher education.
