Congratulations, class of 2009

Off they go into the world beyond high school

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

It's that time of year again, for caps and gowns, Pomp and Circumstance, and graduation parties. Proud parents and grandparents, and thrilled graduating seniors - although some may be feeling sadness, too, at the ending of their high school days. The comprehensive high schools graduate this evening, June 12, while Del Amigo holds its graduation ceremony June 16.

This year's count of graduates in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District is:

* Monte Vista High School: 654

* San Ramon Valley High: 498

* California High: 598

* Del Amigo High School: 32

* Venture Independent Study: 152

To honor the graduates, the Danville Weekly will devote space next week to photos that people send in of their graduates in their caps and gowns. So bring your cameras to the graduations (as if you weren't already!), and e-mail jpegs to by noon Monday, June 15. Be sure to include the name of the graduate, the school and his or her plans for next year.

Thanks, and congratulations!
