IHS Recognizes Seniors by Hosting “Senior Nights”

By ADDISON MOSCO

On Monday, February 7th and Tuesday, February 8th of 2022, IHS held a senior night for seniors on the boys and girls basketball team and the dance team. Each night had a theme to make it even more enjoyable. It is very important to recognize the hard work that seniors put into their sports. Senior night happens around the end of most sport seasons, and it is an incredible opportunity for the seniors to really remember all of the great memories they’ve made playing. 

Junior Maycie Lorelli expressed, “I did attend senior night. I’m on the dance team and I escorted my senior, Ally Conrad, to her parents. I think senior night is very important to honor the seniors of our school and the leaders of their teams. I love being at the senior nights to see some of my closest friends get honored for their accomplishments and future plans. I think senior night is a great night.”

Senior night is a night where seniors and their parents get to reminisce about the future and what other students look forward to. All of the students work very hard to help their team succeed and that is very honorable. It is a night where the seniors get recognized for their accomplishments and leadership. The seniors even get to choose an underclassman to escort them to their parents. It is an overall great time for everyone who attends. 

“I attended senior night because I was there to cheer. I think it is very important to host a senior night for all sports because it recognizes all the hard working athletes. I enjoyed being there because it was nice to see all of the seniors get recognized and hear where everyone was going to further their education and what they enjoyed most about their sport over the years. Overall, I think they made it a wonderful experience for everyone there.”

With the basketball season coming to an end, senior night is a good way to end it.  Senior night was an experience they won’t forget. It was a way for them to really reminisce about all of the hard work they put into their sport. 

A senior on the basketball team, Sarah Madey commented, “I attended senior night because I am a senior on the girls basketball team and have been looking forward to this night since the start of the season. I think that it is important because this is the one night where all of the seniors get recognized for the hard work that we have done for the past four years. Of course, I enjoyed being there because I got to hang out with all of my teammates to celebrate a very special night. I was also grateful to be there with the seniors with who I have been playing basketball with since third grade. Overall, I would say that senior night was a great success, but one thing that could have been improved was having it live-streamed for family members that couldn’t attend that night.”

2024 Keystones: How to prepare for success

By Gabi Isenberg Keystones are rapidly approaching at IHS. By reviewing notes, worksheets, Quizlets, and materials from throughout the year, students can ensure they’ll be successful in their subject’s test. 2024 Keystones begin the week of May 13, so preparation should begin soon. The stress of the looming Keystones can be a lot for underclassmen who haven’t experienced them before. Typically, the Algebra Keystone is taken in the 9th grade, while the Literature and Biology Keystones are typically administered in the 10th grade. However, because of some advanced placement programs, some students complete them earlier. Sophomore Paige Fisanich shared, “I took my Algebra Keystone in 8th grade and my Biology one in 9th. I will take my final one this year. To prepare, I did study guides teachers provided to me and reviewed them.”  Teachers who instruct tested subjects often provide resources for students to prepare for the tests. Algebra
