Sixty-nine local eighth-graders completed their educational careers in the Portola Valley School District on Friday, June 13. Commencement activities were held in the Corte Madera Multi-Purpose Room with more than 300 staff members, families, and friends on hand.

The graduation was kicked off by the co-presidents of the Student Council, Sarah Scandalios and Lucas Andrighetto, who led the flag salute. The evening had many student performances, including the school's "Panache 8" performers who sang "Vienna" by Billy Joel.
