The Class of 2018 at Woodside High School assembled, for the final time, at 10 a.m. on the football field on Friday, June 8, to graduate and consign their high school experiences to the place of memories.

There was music and valedictory speakers -- lots of them -- during the festive ceremony at which family and friends helped some 400 grads celebrate their day.

There were 399 candidates for graduation in the Class of 2018, according to information provided by the school.
