It’s senior year, and that means senior activities, but Poway is severely lacking in number. Poway needs more activities for upperclassman; trips to amusement parks, senior sunrise, a beach day, a luau. Adding more senior events, will increase our school spirit, as well as unifying seniors as a class.
A top priority would have to be getting Poway High seniors to an amusement park. All the other schools in PUSD attend Disneyland as a senior field trip, or have their gradnite there. According to ASB director Mrs. Pratt the trip to an amusement park like Disneyland relies on a senior class president to organize the trip. Maybe it’s time to put some pressure on ASB.
Senior sunrise is the iconic experience of watching the sunrise sitting on your cars, while having breakfast with friends in the school parking. The whole class wakes up before the sun and hangs out before school. This activity could be simply organized by the students themselves, for an easy senior activity.
Senior beach day could be one of the year’s last senior activities, with everyone meeting at the beach for a barbeque, hanging out, and relaxing. A day in the sun and sand would allow students to take advantage of the lovely California weather, and catch a tan. A beach day would also allow them to relax before the stress of senior year and college apps kick in.
A luau would be a great way for the school to increase attendance on minimum days such as PSAT day. Students could have some food, play some games, listen to music, and enjoy each other’s company on such short days.
Having more senior activities will require more planning and effort by Poway’s ASB, but it will make a more spirited and tight-knit group of Titans. More activities for upperclassmen will have a positive outcome and will definitely be worth the effort.by
