In the End, It's the Memories that Matter

By Autumn Lengemann

This year is my senior year, and although it didn’t go as expected, I still tried to make the most of it.

Growing up I had always looked up to the seniors and seeing how they “run the school,” and I always

admired how all of their hard work finally payed off.

I would have never imagined my senior year to go this way, spending it online in my bed. Missing out

on finally being the “big dogs” in the school. From yelling “freshman suck” at pep rallies and sporting

events, to sitting in the front row at football and basketball games and telling the underclassmen to

“cheer” or “move up” on the bleachers.

The Class of 2021 got their senior year ripped away due to the global pandemic. Your senior year is

supposed to be the best year of high school and fly by like a breeze. The school has tried to make our

senior year as special as they can by hosting events for us such as a keychain drive thru event, a Chic-

Fil-A drive thru lunch, T-shirt drive thru, senior yard signs, a parade and morp, in place of prom. I’m

sure most seniors are as appreciative as I am for all the little things the school is putting together to

try to make it our best year possible.

Not only is the school creating special recognition for seniors, but the moms of my friend group are

also doing an amazing job. My mom, along with my friends' moms, have been doing many little things

throughout this year to make it special.

First, since the school was not able to host a homecoming, my friends and I threw our own! We all got

ready like we were going to homecoming, took pictures, ate dinner and threw the dance in my friend's

basement. We crowned the homecoming king and queen and danced the night away.

The parents of my friend group have also been putting together little gift bags that get delivered to our

houses every 21st of the month. And they put together a little Saint Patrick's Day scavenger hunt

around the town for us and it turned out awesome.

They even rented out a place to throw our own little “mask-uerade ball'' in May as a replacement for

prom, but sadly not all seniors can come due to Covid restrictions. And after graduation, my friends

and I will be taking our senior trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Thanks to our parents for renting us out a

house on the beach to celebrate all we have achieved and lost during our senior year.

Although we have lost a substantial amount of events during our last year of high school, we have not

lost the memories we have made throughout the past years. To me the hardest part is thinking about

graduation and how it's not going to be normal. But, at the end of the day, it’s not about the ceremony;

it’s about the memories you've made and the struggles you’ve faced that got you to the ceremony.

The 2020-21 school year has been defined by constant caution and so many unknowns.

But it has also been defined by the reinvention of old traditions and immense

resiliency. This Senior Edition is dedicated to the Class of 2021, and all high schoolers,

who have shared in this journey. Keep on growing!

A Letter From Our Principal

Seniors,

Congratulations! You have made it to the end of your four year journey at Alton High School.

You probably remember several happenings from your freshman year, or I’ll at least bet you

have one incident that still sticks in your mind. If you conjure up that memory, don’t think of

the good or bad of the moment, but think of how far you have come. Think of the friends you

have made. Think of the fun you have had. Think of the memories you have created. Think of

how much more mature you are now than then.

The pandemic affected all of us, but you have come out stronger and more prepared for the

challenges you will face in the future. We could dwell on how many things you missed out on,

and would be right to travel down that path, but let’s don’t. You handled it like champions and

we couldn’t be more proud of you.

I hope you can recognize your strength in making it to this point of your high school career. As

you head to graduation, remember how far you have come since that freshman year.

Remember the friendships and fun you have had over the past four years and know the

memories created at AHS will last your lifetime.

On behalf of the faculty and staff, may I be among the first to congratulate you on your

graduation from high school. You have completed one of the biggest steps of your life. And

now, you’re off to start another journey where your options and potential are unlimited.

You’ve made it! You have heard it said over the years, and now you’ve earned the distinction,

………………………..”Once a Redbird, Always a Redbird”!

Seniors Anticipate Graduation

By Ameerah Clanton, Reporter

On April 28, seniors received an email with updated graduation information based on feedback

from the graduation survey. This year Alton High School is planning two separate graduation

ceremonies.

One ceremony will be on Friday, May 28 at 7 p.m. and the other will be on Saturday, May 29: at

11 a.m. If the weather does not permit outdoor ceremonies, graduation will be moved indoors

to the Alton High School Gymnasium.

Seniors have mixed emotions about graduation. “I am very excited about the graduation

ceremony this year, especially if there’s a chance it’s going to

be outdoor. I have no problem with the set up,” said senior

Antonio Newby.

Some seniors were hoping graduation would be like past

years. “I don’t like how they set up the ceremonies this year

because I would have loved everybody in my class at the

same ceremony together,” said senior Emily Jones.

Even though the ceremonies are structured differently than

previous years, seniors will still receive four tickets for family

and/or friends.

An email sent to seniors on April 6 acknowledged the

difficulties of graduating during a global pandemic. “We

know this year has been difficult and never how we

envisioned our seniors ending their high school careers but

we are still trying to create some lasting memories in these

last few weeks.”

If you had told my freshman self

what my high school career was

going to be like, I probably would

not have believed you, especially

my senior year. It has been a wild

four years, each as different as the

next. Though as stressful as it

might have been, I don't think I

will ever forget it. I am very excited

for the next step of my life.

I hope to complete my associates in arts at

Lewis and Clark within a year, then complete

my bachelors in photojournalism at

a four year university, hopefully in a

city (crossing fingers for Pittsburgh). My

dream job is working for National

Geographic, but we will see.

I wish all my classmates a very happy life.

Over these last few years of high school,

I've learned a lot about myself, good and

bad. And through all of that, my mom was

there right beside me... so shout out to her

because she got me to this point, and I

wouldn't want to share it

with anyone else.

Class of 2021

Whew, has this year been one heck of

a roller coaster! The past two and a half years I

have been going to Alton High School have truly been

the best years of my life. I have learned so many new

life skills and have created friendships that will last a

lifetime. I am excited to start my next journey in life

and pursue my dreams. After high school, I plan on

going to dental school to become a dental hygienist,

but as of right now my college is undecided.

How to Survive High School

Seniors Share Tips for Underclassmen

By Paxton Metz, Reporter

“Do not take high school for granted and do

not take it too seriously, make memories

and enjoy your life.” -Hallie Gebelein

“Try your hardest even, if you don’t feel

like it. There will be days that wanna kick

you down a flight of steps. Don’t let it

break you. It’s not as bad as it may seem.”

-Dylan Petty

“Get your required classes out of the way

before senior year, and don't be afraid to

reach out to teachers when you need help!”

-Emma Hagerty

“It's so important to just live in the moment

and appreciate the time you have in high

school because it goes by super fast, and

although it's challenging, high school can be

the best years of your life.” -Danika Cook

“The advice I have for underclassmen is to

never give up. If it gets too hard to handle,

there are people you can go to.”

-Gracey Watson

“Don't pretend to be someone else just to

impress people, because if you have to

change for someone to like you, then they

aren't worth your time.” -Jordan Linville

“Stay on top of your work and try your best

your freshman year; don't slack off. You

think it's easy to get your gpa up but it

isn't.” -Lynna Fischer

“My advice for any underclassmen will be

to make sure to pass all of your classes and

try not to fail any credits. Also, make sure

fees are paid and not wait until senior

year, because senior year is very expensive

already.” -Jaylah Crawford

“DON'T SLACK OFF AND DON'T

GIVE UP.” -Trinity Ingram

“Take school seriously, but in the same

token, make sure you’re doing it for you!

Nobody has to sit in school all day but YOU.

Nobody has to do the work but you. Also

LIVE; you don’t want to look back on these

years wishing you did so much more. Be a

little rebellious and free, but not too free,

you’ll end up with kids (NOBODY WANTS

THOSE).” -Shakira Pigee

“My advice to underclassmen is to keep up

with your work because your assignments

will quickly catch up to you and it will feel

really hard to make them all up.”

-Grant Lockhart

“Don't slack on school work, because one

missing assignment will turn into 30 very

quickly. But also have fun with it. Don't take

it for granted, and it is okay to disagree with

people.” -Savannah McMurray

“The advice I would give to underclassmen

would be to never use the main staircase!

But also to try new classes and have fun with

it. Not everything has to be super hard or

super easy.” -Lydia Criveau

Get involved! Join a club that you find

interesting,” -Olivia Spangler
