Alexandria Malcolm ‘17 and Brooke Hochstein ‘17- As the end of the year looms in the near distance, seniors reminisce on what was the last of their high school festivities and look forward to what they have left. As an underclassmen, the amount of times seniors tell you “time flies” is too many to count on both hands, but the reality of that comes to life as you’re settling into your last five weeks of high school. Let’s think back and look forward at all the fun times.
Senior Parking Spots
The first of many festivities, for the second consecutive year seniors were allowed to paint appropriate paintings of their choosing on their parking spot. This newborn tradition allows the senior class to express their individuality and creative talent. A hit throughout the classes, underclassmen can’t wait until it’s their turn.
As the girls trade their heels for cleats (let’s be honest, they were probably nike tennis shoes), the junior and senior girls match up for a highly anticipated game. This year, seniors came out victorious with a 7-6 win; better luck next year juniors!
“Spring Break was my favorite part of senior year so far.”- Molly Ames ‘17 said.
No matter if you stayed home or went away for spring break, one thing is the same for all seniors, this was your last spring break as a high schooler. Some celebrated by traveling with their friends and having the time of their lives. Many seniors said that spring break was in fact their favorite part of senior year.
Even though some seniors may think they’re done, this year is far from over. There’s still so many exciting events for the senior class to look forward to that will make these last 5 weeks go by even faster.
“Arsenic and Old Lace was my favorite part, because it was less stressful so I was able to enjoy myself more because it was a smaller cast.”- Hali Racz ‘17 said.
With all this nice weather we’ve been having lately, there’s no better time for some Water Wars! Water Wars is put on by members of the senior class to bring some friendly competition among classmates. Teams of 3-6 are put into a 5 week bracket. The goal of the game is to try to get the other team out by squirting them with a squirtgun. This end of the year event is much anticipated by most.
Getting out of school early
The countdown to end all countdowns, the last one of your high school career. Currently, depending on when you read this, seniors have approximately 21 school days left. Which means the projects are coming down hard, stick in there, you can do this.
