The beginning of the end has commenced as seniors celebrate their final high school moments together. They went to Shaumburg, Illinois for their senior trip on April 12th where they played golf, laser tag, shopped, and more. As their days together come to an end, they look back at all they’ve been through together and all they’ve accomplished as a class. “Looking back at the past four years, we’ve really grown and I think this was my final time realizing how much of a family we’ve become,” said Katelyn Weide. “ I know we’re all going to do great in life no matter where we go or what we do. But this place will always be our home.”
