Seniors will finish their high school experience with activities like a BBQ, breakfast, spirit days, and a special assembly.

“The planning has been the same every year. We’ve been planning since January with the senior class, trying to figure out what we’re going to do and when we’ll do them,” Mr. Johnson, history teacher and senior class adviser, said.

After students check in first period on Friday, they will go to the cafeteria for breakfast. Next, special guest hypnotist Sukuma Avery will do a show for the senior class followed by an assembly in the gym at 10:00 a.m. Following the assembly, the soon-to-be graduates have a BBQ at noon on the football field. Students who signed up for Grad Nite at Six Flags will depart from the school at 3:00 p.m. and come back at 12:00 p.m. the next day.

“I’m really looking forward to the senior breakfast, so I can eat and hang out with my friends before the year ends,” Theresa Jensen, senior, said.

From May 30 to June first is Senior Week, with every day being a spirit day. Tuesday is “Throwback Day”, when seniors will dress as they would have in their childhood. Wednesday is College Shirt Day, where students will show off their future colleges. Senior Citizen Day is Thursday, where students dress up like senior citizens. Senior Week ends on Friday with the Grad Walk. Seniors will strut the halls lead by the marching band to celebrate their last full day of high school. In final preparation, seniors will have a mandatory graduation rehearsal in the gym at 8 a.m.

“Seniors should participate in Senior Week because it is their last ever chance to dress up and show their school spirit. It’s also the last time they will be together with their class before graduation,” Kika Daisley, student council member and senior, said.

Other events during this week include Senior Awards Night on May 30, and Senior Sunset on June 1, which includes a presentation of “High School Musical 3: Senior Year.”
