That time of the year

Senior portraits mark one more milestone for the class of 2024

On September 6, local photographer Dave Allen worked in room 129 to take yearbook portraits for seniors. The portrait sittings also took place on August 2, for students who wanted an earlier time.  This marked the completion of all formal school photos for students of the class of 2024.  Many seniors were seen in dress clothes head-to-toe in order to comply with the dress code for the portrait. It was definitely a view in the hallway. Conversations on topics such as creative quotes and accessories choices were exchanged in senior homerooms as well. There was something mixed with anticipation and also a tinge of sadness in the air, which is a feeling that seniors usually get closer and closer to graduation.

Senior yearbook staffers assisted Dave Allen and the students during their appointment times. “Helping out with the portrait shooting made senior year feel real,” SHIP co-editor Adelaide Baser ’24 said. “It’s weird seeing classmates that I grew up with getting their photos taken. It’s also stressful to pick the one that’s going to be in the yearbook forever!” Having photographed PIHS seniors for two years, Dave Allen said, “I had a lot of fun taking those pictures, I love the kids and I can’t wait to get home and edit the pictures for hours.”

As a permanent record of the high school memory, it’ll be great if everyone has chosen their favorite picture and quote that really represents who they are, so that they could look back on it twenty years later with sentiments, and not have to cringe in front of their loved ones.
