We Just Made the Number Lucky!

Students enjoy one of their senior privileges; the monthly Senior Breakfast. On the left; Matt Serran, Danielle Pasciuto, Conner Dodd, Storm Favara, and Sean Hogan. On the right; Tanner Madonio, Taylor Glover, Kylie Hawk, Alyssa Mitarotondo, and Courtney Meredith.

“Senior year for me has been really fun. I think it’s so cool that our school provides senior breakfasts,” says senior Tanner Madonio. October 19 marked the date of the second senior breakfast of the year. The entrance to the breakfasts is the wearing of the Class of 2013 t-shirts. The shirts have a large “13” on the front and the saying “We just made the number lucky” on the back. The breakfasts are only part of the various activities students participate in during their exciting senior year, the year they looked forward to throughout their whole school career.

This week the students get the chance to be photographed in the traditional senior tux and drape poses for the yearbook. They also will place orders for their caps and gowns, graduation announcements, and other senior mementoes on October 24 and 25. Seniors also have the privilege of eating lunch outside on the senior patio and being released in the afternoons a few minutes ahead of underclassmen.

All this is mixed into the busy agenda that most seniors are participating in of trying to raise their SAT scores, work on college essays, visit college campuses, and complete their college applications. Many colleges and universities are sending representatives to CHS to speak to interested students and answer all their questions on a one to one basis.

Matt Serran said, “It’s great to see all four years pay off. I’m ready to graduate.”

“Senior year for me is like seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m almost there! The future is coming so fast and I’m ready,” said Taylor Glover.

Stephanie Bronchick said, “I’m so excited to be a senior. I’ve waited a long time to wear black during Homecoming Week. I really like our senior events. They make me feel special.”

“It’s really great to be a senior. It’s something you think about all through school,” said Brandon Fallick.

Austin Wilson summed it up, “I’m almost free!”

Special thanks to the Senior Events committee and all the wonderful parents who help make the activities of senior year so memorable!
