It’s time for the annual senior dedicated week, Monday – Friday (May 8-12). Every year the student council puts on a spirit week and plans activities for the seniors to enjoy their final days of high school. In addition to this week, the seniors will partake in exclusive events; like grad walk, senior awards night, and of course graduation. There are many senior events planned for the class of 2023, and it is important to stay up to date, so here is what is going on.
Monday, May 8
Senior breakfast will take place at 6 am to 7 am just outside the cafeteria. Seniors will be congregating with refreshments of coffee, bagels, and much more. To coordinate with the activity, the theme for this day is PJ day.

Looking towards the future, the seniors are encouraged to wear their college shirts. The corresponding activity is Senior Field Day, which will be held on the Coronado soccer field at 2-4 pm. The senior class stuco has also partnered with Chicklila to support the senior activities. This spirit night event will start after the field day and end at 8pm.
