NORTH ATTLEBORO - North Attleboro Middle School's Class of 2020 was honored in a virtual graduation ceremony Thursday night (June 18) on North TV's Education Channel.
The ceremony featured a reading from the winner of the eighth grade Essay contest, the presentation of student awards, a slideshow honoring the graduates, and messages from middle school staff and other officials from across the school department.
The graduation traditionally was held on the Beaupre Field, but was moved last year to the Pickering Gymnasium when the bleachers at the high school field were deemed unsafe. They have since been removed.
Restrictions put in place to curtail the spread of COVID-19 prevented administrators from holding the ceremony in person this year.
North TV's Education Channel Coordinator Jared Ware worked closely with middle school administrators to produce the 44-minute virtual edition of the awards ceremony.
