WHAT? LESS THAN TWO MONTHS LEFT OF HIGH SCHOOL? IM GRADUATING?
Yes! Believe it or not, the Senior class is coming to the end of its reign. While the Class of 2016 has had a lot of exciting events already pass, including Spring Break, but don’t worry: there’s much more to look forward to.
Monday, May 2, is Senior Honors Night. This event is invitation only, and will be held in the auditorium. Senior Honors Night is when the departments get together and chose the students that they believe to have excelled in their program of study. Students are also honored for maintaining a GPA of 3.5 and above. Most years, special guests such as representatives from the armed services give out awards and present scholarships on this night as well.
How can we forget one of those most glamorous nights of high school? Prom is right around the corner! Prom will be Friday, May 27 at Thirty North in Pontiac. The theme will be “red carpet”, so dress ready to walk that walk. “There will be a time in the night where everyone will be able to design/ create there own ice cream sandwich and they’ll get to eat it after,” said Senior Class President Caroline McGann. Sounds yummy and creative!
Final exams will begin for seniors on May 31; yes we know, it’s all going by too quick! Tuesday, the first day, will be a C block and seniors will take their 5th and 6th hour exams. Wednesday will be an A block, with 1st and 4th hour exams. Concluding with a B block on Thursday, and seniors will take their 2nd and 3rd hour exams and will be dismissed after third hour.
Seniors also have to mark their calendars for June 1, where there will be a mandatory graduation rehearsal during 6th hour in the main gym. However, the graduation fun doesn’t stop there. Friday June 3 will be a very busy day for seniors. There will be a senior luncheon from 11:00am-Noon on the football field, with cap & gown distribution right after. Once those are distributed, Senior Celebration will be held for the remainder of the day in the main gym, and parents are welcome. “That sounds like one of the best school days if you ask me,” senior Nick Kassab said.
Then comes the big day, the day your family has been poking fun at you about not making it to for the last four years, the day you hoped you wouldn’t trip and fall in front of hundreds of people: your high school graduation. Graduation will be Sunday, June 5 at the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center. Seniors must arrive by 6:00pm, and the ceremony will begin at 7:00pm.
Finally, the Senior All Night Party will be held at On the Dunes in West Bloomfield. Seniors should expect a night full of food, friends, volleyball, dancing, and enjoying the last great memories made with the senior class.
