MALDEN – Today was just one of many days that the Malden High School Senior Class of 2024 has been looking forward to since the 2023-2024 school year began. Friday was the last official day of classes for the MHS seniors, and a whole slate of activities await them, including some major “Red Letter Days.”

Malden Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ligia Noriega-Murphy congratulated the Class of 2024 at the most recent Malden School Committee meeting and wished them well on their upcoming Graduation Day, which is set for Sunday, June 2 at Macdonald Stadium. “We are so proud of our seniors and this is an exciting time of the year for all of them and their families,” Supt. Noriega-Murphy said. “We wish them all the success they deserve.”

The first major social event for seniors is the Senior Prom, which is being held on Wednesday, May 22 at Danversport in Danvers. One of the major highlights of the night will be the annual Red Carpet event, where promgoers walk the stairs after their arrival at the school before a big crowd of admiring and cheering students and families. That takes place at 4:00 p.m., after which hired buses will provide free transportation to and from the high school to the prom.

Two other major events: Tuesday, May 28: Senior Scholarship Night, Jenkins Auditorium, 6:00 p.m.; Wednesday, May 29: National Honor Society Induction, Jenkins Auditorium, 6:00 p.m.

The signature event, Graduation Day, is set for Sunday, June 2 at Macdonald Stadium (15 Pearl St.) beginning at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are not needed for this event, as had been the case in previous pandemic and post-pandemic years.

On Wednesday, June 5, the Malden High School Athletic Department will be hosting the Annual All-Sports Awards Day and Cookout, which begins at 3:00 p.m. in the Finn Gym with awards, followed by the Cookout in the Courtyard. Only student-athletes attending the event are invited to the cookout, non-student-athletes are not. Everyone can attend the awards ceremony.
