The seniors went with making noise throughout the school with whistles and a speaker. The tradition has always been really emblematic for the almost graduates.

The senior walkthrough changed the faces of lots of students on campus, where the music of the seniors around the school takes the attention of everyone Friday, May 10th.

This senior walkthrough tradition has been happening in lots of generations, and this symbolizes the last minutes the seniors will be in school. This is meaningful because this can be the last steps of the seniors as students in school.

“It was actually incredible, the memories, everything it happens. I have been 14 years in the school when I walked through the classes I was in, MS, high school, I just wanted to cry because it is such nostalgia for me,”  Esteban Arango, 2019 senior, said.

This walkthrough was really sentimental for the seniors,  it is most likely to be the last time they go around the school. Even Though, this activity was really good for the seniors, it wasn´t for one teacher. Ariana Sophiea had her class destroyed by the seniors.

“What happened in my particular case, the seniors came in, trashed my room, jumping in my table throwing things around, breaking things. They got riled up, more and more energy, and there was a mob mentality,” Ariana Sophiea, 12th-grade environmental science teacher, said.

Last Friday, May 10th, the seniors during this celebration, entered to Ariana´s classroom and made a big mess. Because of this act, the seniors couldn´t bring the papayera through school as they do normally.  This big messed was managed by the directives and punished them by cancelling their papayera and Juan David had a meeting with the seniors to talk about respect and scolded them about destroying the class.

“Every school I’ve been in has had a senior parade at the end of the year, it goes through the halls and they go from kindergarten through middle school as they exit. I am all for the seniors to celebrate and be great role models, especially for the younger kids. It should truly be a celebration,” Sophiea said.

Even though the seniors practically “destroyed” Sophiea´s class, she sees this commemoration as a great event. It should be known that this senior walkthrough is for a celebration purpose but not for vandalizing classes.

“I think the school walkthrough is like a closing statement that I was here, I have been through all of this I am ready to move on, That we will be continuing on with our lives and be done with it,” Arango, said.
