Elementary Schools Host Senior Clap Out


With 46 days left in the school year, seniors are getting closer and closer to the end of their high school career. One exciting part of this is getting to attend Senior Clap Out. According to the MISD calendar, Senior Clap Out is an opportunity for seniors to return to their home elementary campus for a small celebration in their honor before embarking on their final days of school. It not only gives seniors the chance to take a walk down memory lane and reminisce about their early days in MISD, but also to potentially see and visit with any elementary teachers they once had. 

Senior Bella Foster said she was excited for the event because she gets to visit with her old teachers.

“Going to Senior Clap Out for me means getting to resist the place where a lot of my core memories were made,” she said. “I got the experience of going to school with my mom so I am really excited to go back and see all of the teachers and staff that have watched me grow up.” 

Different schools have different traditions. Some hold an honorary breakfast for returning alumni, some ask students to wear their college shirts or cap and gown when they come to the school. All of these traditions are an extremely important part of creating an unforgettable experience for seniors as they embark on a new chapter of life. This year’s celebration will be held on Friday, April 30 as an outdoor event with graduating seniors participating in a parade while elementary students and other spectators line the parking lot cheering them on.
