We couldn’t have had a better day for the Wellness Walk at LFHS. Sunshine and 80 degree weather was the extra TLC we’ve been needing. Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors led the walk as Seniors trailed behind. It was a hot 2 miles, but we were able to cool down with popsicles that rewarded us at the finish line. The underclassman piled in and lined up to cheer on the Seniors who headed straight for the food trucks. The Fat Shallot, Frost, and Cheesie’s all came to LFHS and served the eager students. The lines eventually subsided on the front lawn as students received their meals, making it clear that the wait was worth it. All this food was enjoyed by the company of lively DJs that attracted throngs of students. It was definitely a successful day at LFHS and students are very thankful that the school organized this day for us.
E-Day is normally known as the day students can get away with ditching. The school organizes an entire care-free, fun day for us and kids usually just end up blowing it off. It really is a shame considering that so much thought and effort is put into this one day. This year, a lot students ended up participating in the Wellness Walk and the subsequent activities and truly did have a good time. Usually, events like this can be a reflection on the seniors, so the fact that a lot were partaking in this day made it that much better. People also tend to forget that this day is really dedicated to the seniors and highlights their last few days at LFHS. This acknowledgement represents the few memories we have left at a place we’ve grown to be so familiar with. The front lawn is flooded with peers that you have come across every day for the past 4 years. You might not necessarily be friends with every single person around you, but in a sense you feel like you know them. We’ve all been spending time under the same roof for so long that you think it’s going to be that way for forever.
The Wellness Walk might not be the most sentimental day at LFHS, but it is one of the last times you’re going to look around and see familiar faces, so it was certainly something to cherish. For all of the underclassmen, remember that days like these are becoming so rare, and once you realize it, it could be too late. I feel so lucky to have spent my four years of high school at LFHS, and it really is a place I can call home.
