Seniors discuss approaching last day
"It hasn't hit me yet. I'm halfway between being excited because I'm tired right now, but on the other end I know I'm going to miss it."
"It's the kind of thing that I feel like I should have some sentimental feelings about, but I don't because I'm too excited about everything that's going on."
"I feel like it's still very far away because they are still giving us so much work, but I'm excited for school to be over."
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. Dr. Seuss said that."
"It's kind of sad because I'll never see these people all together again, but it's exciting because there's no more high school ever again and we have college to look forward to."
“I can’t wait for the last day of school. I’m really excited and looking forward to saying goodbye to everyone even though I’m going to miss them. I definitely want to thank my teachers too.”
"I think the last day of school is bittersweet because it’s sad and exciting at the same time. I think most kids are really excited to go to college, but there’s a part of them that wants to stay in high school and stay a kid and stay with their friends who they’ve known for so many years.”
“I’m excited but kind of sad because I won’t get to see a lot of people. there’s only a certain number of times I’m going to get to see these people again and that’s kind of sad.”
“It can’t come soon enough.”
“I feel it’s sad because you’re leaving everything behind, but also kind of happy because we get to go out and enjoy life without coming here from 7:00 to 2:30 every day.”
