Forty-one students graduate from Woodside Elementary

Submitted by Tina Adolph of Woodside Elementary School.

Forty-one eighth graders at Woodside Elementary School took part in the school's graduation and received diplomas in the school's amphitheater on June 14.

Commencement exercises began with the Woodside School Band, directed by Beth Dameron, playing the processional, and eighth-grade Student Council presidents Ria Calcagno and Dea Dressel leading the salute to the flag and the national anthem.

Woodside School Superintendent/Principal Beth Polito welcomed parents, guests and students before the eighth-grade students performed songs and gave addresses.

The class of 2013 chose and sang as its class song, "Gone, Gone, Gone," with music and lyrics by Phillip Phillips. Woodside School board trustee and parent Bettina Pike gave the commencement address. Steve Frank, assistant principal, presented the class of 2013 to the Woodside School board of trustees.
