More than 400 Oak Harbor High School seniors made a noisy entrance into the Student Union Building Thursday toting armloads of looseleaf paper, the result of a year of homework and assignments. The excitement grew --— and a few paper balls were thrown — as the group waited for the final bell of their last day of high school to ring.
Five, four, three, two, one — paper exploded everywhere as students hurled armloads into the air. Then the fun began as they flung paper at each other and even made “snow” angels in paper that was calf-deep in some areas. Students slid through the paper on their stomachs, sneak attacked their friends and fell laughing into masses of paper. When the festivities subsided, the junior class cleaned up the paper to earn the privilege of holding their own paper toss next year.
Graduation begins at the high school stadium 6 p.m. Monday, June 11; doors open at 4:45 p.m. and close by 5:55 p.m. Again this year, the ceremony will be streamed live around the world over the internet. A link to the ceremony will be available on graduation day at www.ohsd.net.
