Although the senior classes at High School East and High School West closed out their end-of-year activities a bit differently this year, they still had plenty of reasons to celebrate this June.
The students from both schools had the opportunity to attend a car parade for their senior countdown. In typical years, the students counted down the last moments in their school while the minutes before the final bell of the school year were displayed on the football scoreboard. This year, the students drove by in their decorated vehicles as faculty and staff waved at the procession of cars. The countdown began at 1:03 p.m., one hour before the last bell sounds.
Gold cord recipients, those who maintained a GPA of 4.0 for four consecutive years, had a chance to receive their gold cord awards package, presented by a member of the administrative team. Later in the week, the seniors attended a car parade to pick up their caps and gowns, yearbooks and celebratory lawn signs.
