Students prep for graduation

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Students and Northview High School and Clay City High School are gearing up for graduation.

Seniors at Northview High School have several traditions as they come to the end of their high school days.

Caps and gowns were ordered in the fall when graduation orders were filled.

Last week, NHS students participated in their senior sendoff picnic, where their lunch hour expanded to 90 minutes instead of 30.

"Students were served hot dogs, chips, veggies, drinks and cookies then they played games on the football field and won prizes," senior sponsor Kathleen Harland said.

A new tradition at NHS is the farewell ceremony, that was started three years ago by Jim Church, where seniors watch a musical photomontage in a PowerPoint presentation style.

A right of passage is given when the faculty forms a line to shake their hands as the seniors leave the school. Achievement night recognizes students who have earned honors in Core diploma track, Honors track, Top 10 students, Valedictorian, Salutatorian, Student of the year and scholarships are also presented that night.

Graduation practice will take place on May 30, 9 a.m.-noon. Doors open at 6 p.m. for open seating with the ceremony starting at 7 p.m.

Harland said, "Photos will be taken as the student walks off the stage in their cap and gown."

Clay City High School seniors had their awards night Friday. Next week the CCHS will hold its annual senior picnic and will open a time capsule that has been sealed since the students were in eighth-grade.

"The students are very excited about opening up their time capsule to see what they had thought the future would be like," Principal Jeff Bell said.

The capsules was filled during their eighth grade year with videos of events, pictures and written notes from students.

This year the senior class will be taking a class trip to Kings Island. Each senior will pay $10 for the trip and their class fund covered the rest of the expenses.

Graduation for CCHS is Sunday, June 1, at 4 p.m., and the doors will open at 2:30 p.m.

Im so glad that school is almost over and now I can go on and do the things that I need to get done. My Husband is getting ready to deploy with the United States Army and I have wedding ceremony to plan for October 10, 2009! I am really excited but I will be alot of people!

I want to wish both Northview High School and Clay City High School students the best of luck in everything they do and I really hope that their futures are bright and full of fun and laughter!!

As Mrs. Connors in the FACS Department, at Northview, always says, "Have fun and great break, enjoy every moment with your family and enjoy being able to get outside to this beautiful weather. Have a fun and safe break and don't get involved with Drugs, Alcohol, or Sex!" Mrs. Connors is my inspiration and I have had alot of fun in her class the last two years, I will miss her the most!!! :)

Thank You
