Graduation ceremonies set on Peninsula this weekend

North Olympic Peninsula graduation and commencement ceremonies are set this weekend.

The region’s 10 high schools and Peninsula College are celebrating the class of 2018, marking the end of the 2017-18 school year.

Each school’s graduate count is subject to change, as state graduation requirement testing results and final class grades are received. Graduate candidates may be added or removed from the ceremonies according to those results.

Sequim, Port Townsend, Quilcene, Chimacum and Forks high school ceremonies were last weekend.

This week’s graduation ceremonies are:


• Approximately 230 Roughriders Class of 2018 members will be awarded diplomas during the Port Angeles School District’s graduation ceremony at 7:30 p.m. at Civic Field, 307 S. Race St.
