continued In the 15-minute video presentation — featuring photos of class trips, sports events and activities — the grads and audience witnessed memorable times that conveyed the close bond shared by all.
The presentation included video interviews of the graduates, peppered with observations about school life, often humorous.
The Northland Chamber Ensemble played several selections for the ceremony.
Diplomas were presented by Superintendent of Schools Ray Ciccarelli and school board president Dennis Murphy, assisted by Class Advisor Cindy Ackerle and retiring school Librarian Kathy Field.
The senior music students sang David Cook’s "Time of My Life," lead by school choral director James Miller on guitar.
Adhering to school tradition, the graduates individually presented their parents with red long-stemmed roses, accompanied by hugs. Second-grade grade teacher Gail DePace and Ackerle handed out roses that the students presented to parents.
