Handprint History

Seniors leave their mark on the final day by adding handprints to Senior Wall May 12.

How do you choose to make your mark on the school?

Some students may argue their athletic careers, academic records, or wins in activities hold their place in the school’s history forever. But, no matter what you did or didn’t do, everyone gets honored at the end of their senior year, on Senior Wall.

Every year, on the last day seniors enter the school for Senior Checkout, senior handprints take place, a tradition that’s been hosted by Student Council for years.

This year, Class of 2023 adorned the wall with bright purple-painted handprints, adding on to the collage of years worth of red, green, yellow, orange, and more hands.

“It felt great being able to finally put my handprint on the wall. I’ve been walking past that wall for the past four years, waiting for my turn, and it finally came,” Aahana Nandy ’23 said. “It also really just made it sink in that I’m finally done and senior year–or all of high school for a matter of fact–has come to an end. It was a bittersweet feeling, but I definitely will remember getting to put my handprint on the wall.”
