2023 Needham High School Graduation

Even Mother Nature couldn’t rain on the parade of the Class of 2023 (and she tried!). Through wind and driving rain, the event carried on after being postponed from its original Sunday slot. However, the enthusiasm of the graduating class and their gathered friends and family were not dampened. Join us for all the pomp and circumstance of the commencement ceremony, which took place on Monday, June 5th at Memorial Park.

Congratulations to all of the graduates!
