Submitted by Anita Grossman of Woodland School.

Woodland School, a private K-8 school in Ladera, graduated 14 eighth-graders on June 7.

Members of the class of 2013 are: Nicholas Burnett, Kyra DiMarco, Aqell'ezra Gabriel, Andrew Lemieux, Tyler Lombardi, Arya Natarajan, David Ness, Shana Park, Samara Phillips, Shaina Rojas, Arjun Shah, Nicolas Tan, Madison Tarbox and Spencer Wedel.

These graduates will attend these high schools: Aragon, Hillsdale, Junipero Serra, Lick-Wilmerding, Los Altos, Nueva, Pinewood, Sacred Heart-Atherton, St. Francis and Woodside.

Commencement exercises began with an opening ceremony led by the seventh grade. Head of School John Ora welcomed parents, guests, and students before the eighth-grade students gave their addresses.

Following remarks by valedictorian Kyra DiMarco, Mr. Ora presented several special recognition awards and awarded diplomas to the class of 2013.

"The graduates demonstrated significant leadership and academic growth, and it is no surprise that each one was accepted into their first- or second-choice school," he said. "We look forward to their next accomplishments."
