WOODLAND — TEAM High School held a special early commencement ceremony April 17 for eight students who finished their requirements for a diploma early. This year’s ceremony looked a little closer to normal as they were able to hold a small, in-person event.
“We had so many graduates finishing early this year that we decided to hold a commencement ceremony for those graduates,” Jillian Domingo, the school’s English language arts, social studies, art, and computer sciences teacher, said in a news release. A second ceremony for the rest of the graduates will be held in June.
Woodland High School’s assistant principal Dan Uhlenkott introduced the graduates and read a speech. “I couldn’t be more proud of the alternative learning staff who, in the foreboding darkness of the pandemic, offered a ray of hope,” Uhlenkott told graduates, according to the release.
