Senior song suggestions now open Requests close on Dec. 13

Measuring the size of their heads, seniors Jordan Angeles and Victoria Dang prepare to decorate their senior crowns. Seniors song submissions opened on Nov. 13. . “The best part about being a senior is ultimately just enjoying the last moments of high school,” Angeles said. “I love that I’m still learning valuable information while making a path for my future.

As seniors reach the halfway mark of their last year of high school, it’s time for the selection of the senior song. Submissions are now open and will close Dec. 13.

“The song that is chosen will represent our class as well as be played at the senior assembly and during the slideshow at graduation,” senior class president Jaden Dickson said. “I think that we have wide variety of people with different skills and interests and passions, which makes us a very unique class and I hope our song reflects that.”

Seniors can submit their songs through the google form. Previous class songs include ‘Young, Dumb and Broke’ by Khalid and ‘Youth’ by Troye Sivan’.

“I chose to submit the song ‘Tongue Tied’ by Grouplove because that song is very upbeat and always makes me think of great memories I’ve made throughout high school,” senior Jordan Angeles said. “Whenever I hum or sing it, everyone seems to know the song well so I think it’s a good option because everyone is able to enjoy it.”

All songs must be appropriate and will be reviewed multiple times before decisions are made. Students will be able to vote again, when the top five songs are chosen.

“My idea for the senior song is ‘Bigger’ by Beyoncé,” senior Cyncir Pollard said. “The song is very inspirational and fill of valuable advice, that we can take into our lives after high school.

After the final choices are voted on, the selected song will be announced in January.

“I think the senior class is full of driven and bright students who I think are going to go to great places in life,” Dickson said. “I hope that a majority of the people feel connected to the chosen song and love it.”
