So fresh, so clean, 2015
August 30, 2014
Another year, another senior class, and to the class of 2015…well, here we go. We’ve been in school for eleven long years and it’d be nearly impossible to find a senior who isn’t excited to be leading the school. Senior year has got some great things in store for us, from the kickoff Senior Parade to our final Spirit Week to graduation way out in June. Although we have all these fun things to be looking forward to, we must also keep our feet on the ground the first few months of the year. Many of us plan on attending college next fall and September through December is the application crunch-time. I myself am dreading the process, but feel comforted in knowing that there is an abundant amount of teachers willing to give us some guidance throughout the process.
2015 is an interesting class, to say the least. Filled with athletes and actors and brainiacs and leaders, everyone’s strengths and weaknesses seem to balance out. We’ve never won a Spirit Week (although our posters are definitely impossible to beat), but I’ve yet to see a class so proud of coming in fourth place. This class has a bunch of goofballs and extroverts mixed in with the quiet and introverted. And for all the different groups of friends in the class of 2015, there doesn’t seem to be anything terribly clique-y about this class, which is a pretty special quality for any grade to possess.
We have spent three years in this building and are more than prepared to lead the school for this one. 2015 is smart, confident and not afraid to test any limits. We’re going to spend our year on top working to further the already fine school in any ways we can, even if this means questioning authority (a bit). Change doesn’t happen overnight, and luckily this year’s senior class is full of determined young adults. If we want to get stuff done this year, mark my words, we will.
So here we go 2015, here’s to the start of the ever-coveted senior year. Let’s get those applications in now so we can spend the year enjoying each other’s company with no stress (well, limited stress). Hollis Brookline will miss the recently graduated class of 2014, but as with every autumn this school sees, the torch has been passed to the next ready-to-serve class. 2015, it’s our time to shine.
