Last Friday was the annual Senior Send Off. All the classes were called down by floor.
When everyone was seated, Dr. Tucker spoke about how everyone should follow their dreams.
Ms. Rohweller-Kocur spoke about the teachers and staff who were retiring. Ms. Ship, the vice principal for juniors and seniors, Marvel, from the health start clinic, Sr. Rios, a Spanish immersion teacher, Ms. Sherrod, the personal finance teacher, and Ms. Harrison, the school nurse, are all retiring after this school year.
After saying goodbye to them, Ms. Rohweller-Kocur invited the senior student council representatives to address their class.
Next, Ms. Ship gave some inspirational advice.
Ms. Ships’ speech was followed by messages to the seniors from their siblings. While some were funny and meant as a joke, others were very sweet and full of emotion.
The last part of the assembly, before the seniors got to leave, was the senior slide show. The slide show contained pictures of the seniors throughout their lives as students.
When the slide show ended, the seniors were allowed to leave through the passage in the middle of the gym. The passage was lined with teachers saying good-bye to their former students.
The Senior Send Off is a great way to congratulate the seniors and celebrate the fact that the next chapter of their life is beginning.
