Parade of graduates
Friday morning prior to graduation practice, WHS graduates donned their graduation gowns for the annual Parade of Graduates. Graduates parade through Columbia and North Fork Elementary Schools, Woodland Middle School, and Woodland High School while each school’s students line the routes to celebrate their graduates with posters, cheers, and high-fives.
At each elementary school, the graduates formed a tunnel for the school’s kindergarten students to run through as they celebrated the end of their first year of school and their transition to first grade this fall.
