WHS grads bid farewell to those who will follow


Students from Canal School high-five graduating seniors as they walk through the halls of their old elementary schools and Westbrook Middle School last week to say goodbye to younger students and former teachers. The Class of 2018 received their diplomas last Saturday.

Members of the Westbrook High School Class of 2018 march through the halls of Canal School Friday, the day before they graduated at Merrill Auditorium in Portland.

For the first time in the district, the Class of 2018 had an opportunity to visit their old schools before graduating and going their separate ways this fall. Students visited the three elementary schools and Westbrook Middle School before returning to the high school for a barbecue lunch.
