SAN RAMON -- The big day came at last for California High School's seniors, when they were awarded their diplomas Friday.

Hats flew into the air at the commencement ceremonies that were held at the school's own Ernie Berger Stadium.

As is tradition, all of the San Ramon Valley school district's traditional high schools -- California, San Ramon Valley, Monte Vista and Dougherty Valley -- held their graduation ceremonies simultaneously.
