Why does everyone want to be a senior? Senior privileges of course! Senior privileges are advantages that only seniors possess. One would think that those who have been at their high school the longest would have more advantages than underclassmen. In some schools that is not always the case. At King/Drew the only knowledgeable senior privilege is the senior square.
Other schools have privileges such as senior only parking, senior only lines, off-campus lunch, and early dismissal.
Seniors at King/Drew were asked their opinion concerning senior privileges and they had a lot to say upon the topic. Most felt as though seniors at King/Drew should be able to have a lot more advantages than they have.
When asked if they thought senior privileges was prevalent this year in the Class of 2016, seniors agreed that there were not any senior privileges.
While talking to the seniors it was discovered that they had a lot of suggestions when it comes to new senior privileges. Obed Sanchez(senior) said, “I think we should have at least one day of free dress out the week, and we should be able to go out and get food and come back.” Jaylin Harris(12th grader) stated, “I think we should be able to go off campus and eat.” Ronikka Geter(senior) said, “I think we should have the opportunity to go get lunch at lunch time.”
When asked how seniors should go about getting senior privileges, they had some great ideas. Ronikka Geter(12th grader) said, “Having the whole class come together and say something to the authorities.” Jaylin Harris(12th grader) suggested “Signing contracts to allow us to go down the street to eat.” Obed Sanchez(senior) proposed that “We should vote on it (senior privileges) and our behavior.”
Senior privileges is what seniors look forward to after a long 3 years. Unfortunately, at King/Drew the only entitlement our seniors have is the “senior square.” Is that truly the only privilege we have earned? Comment below and share your opinion.
