The Last First Day of The First Chapter

As the 2024 class comes to their senior year they participated in a TCS tradition, celebrating the last first day of this chapter of their lives.

The celebration took place on the first day of the 2023 -2024 school year. Among the guests were; parents, teachers, high school administrators and the superintendent. Multiple members of the community made significant remarks during the events about senior year. 

“What makes a difference on any journey is the people you are traveling with,” Dr. Ruth Allen, Superintendent, said.

Throughout the commencement speeches delivered, a common and resonant theme emerged—an endorsement of the 2024 senior class slogan, “Celebrate the road, treasure the memories.” Both Allen and Mr. Navarra, HS Principal, alluded to this motto during their interventions.

“I did really enjoy, yesterday I saw for the first time the slogan which if I don’t get it wrong is celebrate the journey treasure the memories,” Allen said.

The event featured three distinct moments. It began with the seniors entering the parking lot alongside their parents. This was followed by a series of speeches in front of the high school coliseum.

“I really enjoyed the event, it was a recognition of our effort and that of our families. I especially liked the movement in which we got to open the boxes and read the letters that our family members wrote,” Miguel Mena, Senior, said.

There was a snack session during which seniors and their families opened personalized gift boxes containing mementos and heartfelt letters from their loved ones. It took place after the ceremony was held.

Since I have worked at TCS this tradition has taken place. I love this event because it also serves as a personal satisfaction, to see the kids that I met in 9th grade grow, develop and learn becoming a role model to the community,” Gloria Vélez, painting teacher, said. 

The coordination of this event was a joint effort between the school administration and a group of mothers. This collaborative organization involved paying attention to every detail, ensuring that the 2024 class’s final first day proceeded as seamlessly as possible.

“Although I am not part of the planning committee I was very proud of the work they accomplished for our kids making sure that everything was perfect, from the preparation of the stage to making sure that every student had a letter from their loved ones,” Luz Victoria Vélez, mom of a senior student, said.
