|NICOLE QUINONES FOR THE WIZARD WEEKLY|
May 1st is coming and, for most, that just might seem like another ordinary day. For seniors, however, May 1st represents the day they have to have their future plans finalized. On this special day, seniors wear shirts representing their schools or branches of the military to show off what they will be doing next year. Deposits for most schools are due that day to secure students’ spots. Overall, it is a celebration of the future for seniors.
Now that May 1st is looming, seniors are going to start getting ready for their futures. Leaving for college this summer is going to be exciting, but it is also stressful. There is so much preparing to do before hand.
Seniors also have to prepare mentally for college. If they are going away, it is going to be difficult transitioning from being with family and friends all the time to not having them around. They will also be starting a whole new workload that might be different from what they are used to in high school.
Students can prepare for this big change by remembering that their future is right around the corner. They should be trying to stay as calm as possible through this hectic time in their lives. There is so much work that goes into this transition, so get ready because it’s going to be happening fast.
This year on Monday, May 1st, the senior class of Washingtonville High School will be holding a Decision Day Potluck Dinner. It will be held in the large cafeteria at 5pm. Seniors attending are encouraged to bring a meal to the dinner. All seniors are welcome no matter what they are planning to do after graduation. Come on out and celebrate the decision that you made with your friends.
