Remember us Woodside High graduates leave gift for future classes Photos by Michelle Le Story by Dave Boyce
t Woodside High on June 7, the 382 candidates for graduation in the Class of 2013 had something for the two classes coming along behind them in 2014 and 2015: two $1,000 scholarships for each class. It’s a tradition at Woodside for the graduating class to leave the school something by which to remember it. Scholarships are a frequent gift. For the ceremony, Woodside included just one song: the Star Spangled Banner. Senior class president Samantha Shea welcomed the parents and guests and introduced the two major speeches of the day: “I’m a Big Kid Now” by Annalise Constantz, and “Simple Gestures” by Julia Belanoff. Another Woodside tradition is a speech by multiple speakers, all valedictorians. Principal Diane Burbak introduced the speakers this year: Emma Adams, Ethan Anderson, Katharine Anderson, Caroline Baltay, Julia Belanoff, Andrew Blatner, Ryan Blocker, Alaina Bujtor, Hannah Campbell, Nicole Clary, Christine Flock, Lauren Hennefarth, Serena Houghton, Allison Knapp, Nicolas Michel, Marissa Scully, Traci Tolles and Tirragen Vixie.

Woodside High School colors of orange and white met the eye everywhere on the school’s football field Friday, June 7, when the Class of 2013 said goodbye. Their parting gift: four $1,000 scholarships for the next two graduating classes.

Hitting a high note M-A class of 2013 celebrates graduation Photos by Michelle Le Story by Dave Boyce
h, what heights they’ll hit. The Looney Tunes Overture, performed by the Menlo-Atherton High School Concert Band and Orchestra, lent an optimistic and mildly comical note to the start of the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2013 on June 6. There are 418 candidates for graduation in the class. The ceremony began as it always has at M-A with notes of patriotism. A contingent of U.S. Marines marched out onto Coach Parks football field carrying the U.S. flag, Senior class president Dana Thomas led the assembly in the Pledge of Allegiance, and the band and choir sang “America the Beautiful.” Four graduates spoke: Eduardo Gonzalez talked of the challenges ahead, Danbi Byun described her path of success at M-A, Tyler Finn asked “What’s next?” and Randy Oliver advised his peers about the importance of a positive attitude. Two foreign exchange students, Sofia Blixt of Sweden and Marino Santos Gutierrez of Spain, also graduated and were recognized. In parting, the choir performed a mix of popular songs, then maroon tassels were turned and maroon hats were tossed. A
