Paper Chase 2004

After 12 years of studying, the class of 2004 is about ready to graduate.

Seniors at Oak Harbor High School enjoyed their final week of classes this week. They capped off their last day of class with the paper toss, where the seniors took all of their term papers and assignments they gathered throughout the year and hurled them into the center of Parker Hall.

The 15-minute event was highlighted by students throwing their papers in the air and sliding on the floor to celebrate the end of high school.

The seniors didn’t have to pick them up after themselves, however. That task was reserved for the juniors, who grabbed plastic bags and picked up the papers that coated the floor at Parker Hall. Next year, it will be their turn to have the fun in the annual event.

The seniors were also busy enjoying the other traditional events that make up graduation week.

Friday morning included the senior breakfast followed by an award and recognition assembly.

Another awards assembly was scheduled for Friday evening.

Baccalaureate will be held Sunday at 3:30 p.m. with Dr. Keith Anderson, dean of spiritual formation of Northwestern College, speaking.

Oak Harbor High School’s graduation is scheduled to take place Monday, June 14, at 7 p.m., in the gym. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The fieldhouse will be open to all guests.

Coupeville High School’s graduation is scheduled for today beginning at 5 p.m. at the gymnasium.
