Fischer High School’s Class of 2024 eagerly embraces numerous senior class privileges as the school year unfolds. These perks add to the enjoyment of senior year and are what students look forward to beginning in ninth grade. Senior class privileges include privilege days, class trips, special lunch opportunities and more.
Privilege days offer more than just time off from school. On certain privilege days, seniors are excused from assessments and homework in order to receive crucial input and assistance in writing college application essays.
“No test days allow me to focus my attention on college applications and truly designate some time to nail my essays,” senior Luca Silberberg says.
These privilege days also include late starts, most utilized during the first week of school, in which seniors begin classes at 9:30 a.m.
“Some of the advantages of privilege days are prevention of senioritis, enhanced school culture, improved attendance, and enhanced well-being,” Fischer High School Student Activities Coordinator Michael Chanan says. “The benefits give students more than just fun: they provide a better quality of life for the seniors’ last year.”
In addition, the Class of 2024 enjoyed a trip to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. This is typically the students’ last trip in their high school career. Therefore, the Fischer High School faculty and staff does everything possible to make the trip memorable.
“[I] plan a variety of activities to cater to different interests,” says Chanan. “I ask for input from the seniors about the types of activities they would enjoy. I also take ideas from past years that I know were successful.”
Chanan also works closely with class officers to plan senior class events. “This collaboration helps to make the events more representative of the senior class as a whole,” Chanan stated.
Students attending the Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure trip this year left positive reviews. “My favorite part of the trip was hanging out with the boys and going on the rides,” senior Ilan Goldmann stated. “My personal favorite was the Velocicoaster.”
Fischer High School seniors are also given several lunch privileges for the year, including extended lunches and being able to have lunch off-campus.
“My favorite thing about lunch off-campus is going out with my friends instead of eating on campus,” senior Leelle Raz remarked.
A significant senior privilege involves designated parking spots. Seniors have two days at the beginning of the school year to personalize their individual spots’ curb stops. This gives them an opportunity to express their personality in a unique artistic fashion.
“I love getting the chance to paint my parking spot because it gives me a chance to get creative and show my personality,” says senior Neela Rudolph.
From the start of the academic year, seniors experience several exclusive privileges. These benefits help seniors conquer their last year of high school.
