After nearly four years in the Heritage Hall Upper School, the class of 2021 is set to graduate in a few short months. For many seniors, this rapidly approaching milestone elicits a common sentiment, “I just can’t believe we’re almost there.”
Before taking the ceremonial walk across the commencement stage, however, there are still many activities to enjoy and memories to make. Last week, for example, students participated in Senior Week, an annual tradition that celebrates seniors in a fun, lighthearted way.
The week began with a socially-distanced group lunch catered by Fuzzy’s (THANK YOU, senior moms!). Afterwards, all of the seniors gathered outdoors for a picture in their matching Senior Week sweatshirts. Throughout the rest of the week, seniors participated in various dress-up days. Students went from mirroring their lower school selves in old field trip T-shirts to sporting senior citizen styles to wearing fashion no-no’s.
“Senior Week was super fun! I loved the sweatshirts, lunch, and dress-up days. Having been here since Lower School, It’s crazy to think I’ll be graduating in a couple months,” commented senior Lily Roberson.
As a senior, I think it's safe to say that reflecting on all of the dances, sporting events, academic achievements, service projects, etc., over the years makes us all a little sentimental, even as we look ahead with excitement.
Heritage Hall is a co-educational college preparatory school in Oklahoma City. As one of the few secular private schools in the state, we offer a challenging academic curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12, as well as unique leadership opportunities, a wide spectrum of athletics, and a well developed fine arts program.
