Cedar Point over class


A giant chunk of a student’s life is spent sitting at a desk, scrawling out numbers and letters in a traditional classroom setting. Elementary school, junior high school, and high school. And the last stretch is seemingly the longest.

But the end is in sight for the seniors, with just a handful of days left before they move forward. And, in recognition of their accomplishment, the senior class has certain privileges the underclassmen will have to wait for, such as Prom, parking lot spaces, and Senior Skip Day.

“It finally hits you that you’re a senior when it’s Senior Skip Day, because everyone knows that it’s something the seniors do. Everyone just automatically expects seniors to become more rebellious when they’re almost done with high school because they don’t have to deal with it anymore. So senior pranks and a senior skip day have just become a thing,” senior Tyler Sanborn said.

Sanborn, along with many other Ike seniors, spent their Senior Skip Day in Cedar Point, riding the Maverick during his third hour, waiting in line during his fourth.

“Senior Skip Day made me look back on my years at Ike,” Sanborn said. “It’s times like these, when we’re celebrating high school coming to an end that I remember how far we’ve all come, and how far we still have yet to go.”
