On Friday, May 18 at 8:15am, the LDHS seniors started their last day of high school. The last day for seniors is a tradition commonly known as Senior Celebration Day. It is a day full of activities, and it lets them have fun together one last time before graduation day.

The day started out with the seniors going to the Lecture Theatre to watch a video of how they have grown over the years and the people they have grown up with. “Everybody was smiling and laughing. It was nice reminiscing together” senior Kendall Wasson said. Once the video was over, they received, and got to sign each other’s yearbooks.

The seniors left to go to their elementary schools around noon, and they walked through the halls in their cap and gowns to say goodbye or even thank their former teachers. The current students clapped for the class of 2018, and got to see where they would be in a couple of years.

This years senior celebration was beach and Hawaii themed, however dress code still applied. Junior, Andrew Taylor said “Due to the excessive rain on May 17th, the Senior Celebration had to be held inside this year.” For the rest of the school day the seniors played games in the main gym such as volleyball and tug of war. They took pictures in the “photo booth” which was also  located in the main gym. After school was the Powderpuff game, but due to the weather they moved it to Monday, May 21st. Powderpuff is a flag football game between the junior and senior girls. The seniors won that following Monday. “It was a good game, the seniors just played better. They deserved it” junior Madison Davis said.  It’s safe to say that the seniors ended the year on a good note.
