Sonoma Valley High School’s annual “Senior Walkabout,” now in its fourth year, has quickly become a highlight of the year for both the graduating class and younger students through the district.

As soon as the last name was called at the senior award ceremony at SVHS on May 24, the class of 2019 put on their caps and gowns and boarded waiting school buses. Sonoma Valley High seniors then visited the elementary and middle schools from which they graduated.

Students returned to Adele Harrison and Altimira middle schools, as well as all five of the district’s traditional elementary schools, plus Sonoma Charter, Woodland Star, Presentation and St. Francis Solano elementary schools. At each campus the seniors, wearing graduation garb, were greeted by students and staff, receiving high fives, applause, musical tributes and more.

Seniors shook hands with and hugged former teachers, some of whom were in tears.
