On Tuesday, Sept. 6, seniors participated in their annual senior sunrise tradition at the grass fields. Seniors brought blankets and snacks to share with their friends and laid down across the field to watch the sunrise together. This sunrise signified the beginning of their last year of high school. 

“The event was pretty successful,” Senior Class President Amy Simon ‘23 said. “It was so exciting to see how many seniors were willing to wake up so early to celebrate the new [school] year together.”

Students were able to buy class shirts for $5. Additionally, they were able to write letters to their future selves.

“We completely sold out on t-shirts,” Simon said. “I think it was really special to be able to write the letters to our future selves together. I’m looking forward to seeing our letters at the end of the year.”

Students will be able to open their letters during senior sunset at the end of the year. They will be able to reflect on their time at Westwood and bring their final year of high school to a close.
