Senior traditions of the past (senior sneak, painting of the star, senior picnic) have nearly disappeared altogether in our high school and reverted into regular school days.

Why is this? Because seniors stopped participating in the fun activities that the school planned. Administration had to do away with these days because the attendance was too low to qualify the days as school days.

In years gone by, seniors enjoyed taking trips as a class to Denver, Salt Lake, and even California to attend baseball games, amusement parks, restaurants, and water parks! Seniors from back in the day even used one day as community service to hike to the famous star and “paint the star” and do maintenance on the structure.

Perhaps one reason the senior sneak has become extinct stems way back to 2002 in Denver. In the hotel where the sneaking seniors were staying, they had windows facing the pool. Naturally, some seniors took the windows out and proceeded to jump from the second floor of the hotel into the pool. The hotel staff did not appreciate this too much and nearly kicked them out of the hotel!

As long as seniors would rather just skip the days planned to make their last year in high school memorable and not participate in some community service and fun school trips, they will continue to go to class instead. Upcoming seniors, show support for reinstituting these fun traditions and make your last year of school memorable.
