On Wednesday, June 10, the Amity Class of 2020 was honored with a mix of the live and a virtual commencement ceremony.

The first portion of this video shows the usual congratulatory speech from the school principal and superintendent, then a variety of surprise guests, some Amity Alum: Connor Deane and Scott Feinberg for example as well as unexpected celebrities who wish the graduates well. The Class speakers, followed by Jill LaPlante presenting the Amity Award of Distinction to Yale-bound Danielle Lee. 

Then it’s time to see the graduates receive their diplomas in groups of four — this took place in shifts between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. that day.

It’s worth a mention to give credit to the chorus teacher who contacted her students and asked them to sing their parts of the National Anthem individually from their homes, then quickly spliced the whole thing together. It came out beautifully.

There are still about 40 Amity seniors who haven’t gotten their diplomas. They chose to graduate on the Football Field in small groups on July 7. We will provide more information on that event when it becomes available.

The wind really picked up and nearly carried my camera away as Jill LaPlante, Director of Counseling Services presented Harvard bound senior Rosie Du with the Amity Education Award of Distinction during the June 14, 2019 Commencement Ceremony in Woodbridge.

Rosie represented Amity High School with distinction indeed. She played Tennis, and an instrument, was a Link Crew leader, Editor In Chief of the school newspaper, and treasurer of the Student Government.

She worked very hard on her studies and will attend an Ivy League College in the Fall.

Rosie is an amazing young lady and will accomplish great things in the future.

Congratulations on earning this prestigious honor.

Here is a LINK to the video with a very windy background.
