With last winter's storms and other bad weather pushing the last day for Harford County Public Schools students to Friday, June 17, members of the Class of 2011 couldn't care less about the extended school year.

Every closing for snow or inclement weather brought a little more joy to the seniors than it did even for the other kids and their teachers who happily took the day off, knowing it might cost them in the end — of the school year. And they will, for all but the seniors whose Graduation Week festivities are locked in.

It's that time of year again, with the end of this month and beginning of June packed with graduations.

This year's ceremonies began May 19 with Harford Community College's graduation and conclude with Perryville's in neighboring Cecil County at 6 p.m. Friday, June 10.

Next up after HCC, students at John Archer School will receive their diplomas May 27, the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend.

Aberdeen, Bel Air and Joppatowne will be Tuesday, May 31. All graduations will be at 6 p.m. at their home schools.

North Harford's seniors graduate Wednesday, June 1, at 6 p.m., at Aberdeen High School. C. Milton Wright's and Edgewood's seniors graduate the same day at the same time. C. Milton Wright's graduation is at Bel Air High School and Edgewood's is at home.

Patterson Mill and Havre de Grace hold graduations Thursday, June 2, at their schools. Patterson Mill's is at 6 p.m. and Havre de Grace's is at 7 p.m.

Friday, June 3, begins with a 10 a.m. graduation for the Harford County Public Schools' alternative education program at the Center for Educational Opportunity at the Aberdeen High School complex.

The day continues with Fallston's and Harford Tech's graduations. Fallston's will be at 5 p.m. at Bel Air High School and Harford Tech's at 5:30 p.m. in the Amoss Center on the school's campus.

Harford Christian School finishes the day with its graduation at 7:30 p.m. June 3.

John Carroll closes Harford County's Graduation Week 2011 with its baccalaureate and graduation beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday, June 5.

And the rest of Harford County's public schools students will still have two more weeks of classes.
