Savoring the school year’s final days

Youth Leadership has also collaborated with the music department to organize for the upcoming Memorial Day Parade. Students involved in the high school’s extracurricular clubs and activities will hold an attractive banner in the parade while the marching band and dance team members will perform. After the parade, the high school will host a community gathering.
Many Hewlett students have been busy with their academics as well, for this past week was the start of advanced placement (AP) exams. Many students, especially seniors, will be sitting for many of these long exams. I know that many of my peers and I leave these tests exhausted, with pen ink all over our sore hands, wanting nothing more than to take a refreshing nap. The ending of AP exams signals a very rewarding and exciting time, reminding students that the demands of school are gradually lessening. An especially exhilarating day at school was May 1 when seniors proudly sported their college apparel. As a senior, it was fun to see where all my peers will be heading next year based on their clothes. Younger students also enjoyed noticing the seniors’ spirited outfits in the hallways and learning, which colleges and universities the seniors had decided to attend.
In and out of the halls of Hewlett High there are plenty other reminders that the school year is reaching its end. It is important to savor the last days of the school year while they last.
