Seniors can mark their calendars for the May 3, 4, and 5 school receptions. Elementary, middle and intermediate schools are holding receptions for their former students who are graduating this year. Seniors will have a chance to visit their old teachers and catch up with old classmates.
May 3 is the day of the elementary school receptions. They will be held at the individual elementary schools with the following changes: Indian Springs is now Aspen Creek, Westwood is now Creekwood and Park Lane is now Highland Park. The receptions begin at 4:15 p.m.
May 4 is when the middle school receptions are taking place. Seniors are to show up to their former middle school at 3:15 p.m. Note that Haskell is now Oneta Ridge.
May 5 is the last of the receptions for intermediate schools. Since the intermediate schools were combined to form a ninth grade center, the reception for seniors from both schools will be held at The Freshman Academy at 3:30 p.m.
“Sometimes changes occur in our lives like the deterioration of North Intermediate, yet these things make us stronger and we remember more of the memories together,” senior Dana Thomas said.
Food will be provided for the graduates at the receptions so they can enjoy some refreshments as they roam the halls and reminisce about their glory days. For a lot of the seniors, their old schools have undergone some construction or even changed locations.
“My elementary school, Lynn Wood, has been changed so much,” senior Gabriela Rubalcava said. “All of the outdoor buildings are gone and we finally got a gym.”
Teachers from the seniors’ 12 years of education have played a large role in getting the graduates where they are now. These receptions are the perfect opportunity to thank them for their contribution.
“I am thrilled to see my sophomore Biology teacher and my eighth grade reading teacher,” senior Kalil Toles said. “They played major parts in helping my education.”
Teachers aren’t the only people seniors can look forward to seeing. Going back to their old stomping grounds likely means that seniors will run into classmates that they haven’t seen in years. A trip down memory lane could be just what the seniors need to get them through the last weeks of their last year of school.
“I’m looking forward to reconnecting with people and revisiting the memorable history we share,” Thomas said.
