As the school year winds down and the senioritis gets worse, the class of 2019 must start saying goodbye to high school and saying hello to their post-secondary plans. While many seniors like to focus on the things they will not miss about PV, students may not realize the many things they will miss about high school. With only 25 days left in the seniors’ high school careers, here is a list of 25 things seniors will miss about PVHS next year.

  1. Driving to school and being guaranteed a parking spot, even though this is also a new luxury to the class of 2019
  2. The seemingly endless number of Jeeps in the parking lots
  3. Chicken mashed potato bowl, spicy chicken wrap, and Sidekicks
  4. Seeing the new additions to the all-state musicians, athletes, and artists walls after coming back from spring break
  5. Being greeted at the back door of the school by Tony Cox, Jason Roethler, or Frank DeMaria when students do not have a first-period class
  6. Don Fry creeping up behind and scaring the daylights out of his former students
  7. The absurd nicknames David Hult gave to his former students
  8. Going through the stress of getting a group together, finding and buying an outfit, finding the prime location for pictures, and getting a dinner reservation for school dances
  9. Not having trip-safe classrooms anymore since backpacks are allowed in college lecture halls
  10. The student ID number they have had for their entire PV careers
  11. Having enough time to get from one class to another
  12. Every class being within a five-minute walk of one another
  13. Only having to go up a maximum of two sets of stairs each passing period
  14. Complaining to the gym teachers that their heart rate monitor is not accurate and getting the same response over and over again: “Work harder”
  15. Bragging to others about how little they tried on the Pacer
  16. Getting docked cooperation points for skipping a set of MVP Complex
  17. Going to practice and meets with high school teammates
  18. The lack of midterms at the end of each quarternot applicable to Joshua Hoffman’s physics class
  19. Not having to compete with their classmates for a good curve on their testsunless they were in AP Physics and have already experienced the “Spang Curve”
  20. Getting to see the friendly faces of the Spartan Bistro every Friday
  21. Knowing the names of everyone in their classes
  22. Dropping in to say “hello” to their favorite teachers
  23. Going to the same friends’ lockers during the same passing period every day
  24. Eating open campus lunch during finals days. Although every day in college is an open campus lunch day, the significance of these meals will quickly fade away.
  25. Seeing the same familiar faces students have encountered in the halls for the past four—or possibly thirteen—years
