THE LAST STORY


H Y B R I D While reminiscing over a past of A and B days, misusing asynchronous time and confusing Wednesdays, West Side Story came up with our own hybrid model: we merged your yearbook photos to create the “average” senior student in the following groups. COMPILED BY ELLA ROSENTHAL DESIGN BY ELLA ROSENTHAL

THE “AVERAGE” SENIOR ATHLETE.

THE “AVERAGE” 2021 SENIOR.

THE “AVERAGE” THEATRE SENIOR.

THE AVERAGE SENIOR MUSICIAN.

THE “AVERAGE” SPEECH AND DEBATE SENIOR.


Senior Shout Outs Before they finally take on the “real” world, the Class of 2021 shares their appreciation for the people who helped them along the way.

Thank you to the kid that always got to school the same time as me and always opened the front door for me.

Shoutout to everyone who has given me a hair tie when I didn’t have one. Thanks and sorry for not returning them!

RIP yahoo answers. You carried my AP physics grade.

Shout out to the people who always told me that they liked my crocs, especially when I didn’t look too great. Thank you for making my day :)

Shout out to Craig’s Twitter for entertaining me while waiting for school lunch.

Senior Confessions With this opportunity to escape accountability and embarrassment, the Class of 2021 discloses their deepest secrets anonymously.

The only test I didn’t cheat on in Spanish 4 junior year was the big cheating scandal test.

COMPILED BY FAREEHA AHMAD ART & DESIGN BY ELLA ROSENTHAL

I ran over my chromebook with a car and told the tech people I left it in the car overnight and that happened.

My car drove through the west high courtyard and I had to act as if nothing was happening.

I wish I went to City.

One time I ate a whole red onion during a school day. I couldn’t taste anything for a while thereafter.

My friends and I skipped class to go to McDonald’s. We all almost got hit by a semi truck.

I have kept “The Crucible” in my purse throughout all of high school and haven’t taken it out. The library has sent me too many emails about it.

Senior Apologies Leaving the halls of West High guilt-free instead of guilt-ridden, the Class of 2021 apologizes to those whom they may have wronged.

I apologize to all my teachers who I may have been rude or dismissive to. You were awesome. I was just having a hard time or was so tired that I couldn’t keep a facade of, “Oh, I’m so happy today.”

Sorry to my friend because I accidentally broke her nose sophomore year. My bad.

I apologize to the lunch ladies for always forgetting my school ID.

I apologize for requesting “Whip/Nae Nae” by Silentó for prom 2021.

I’m sorry to the debate team for not being obsessed with the club and coming only once a week and then leaving in disgrace.

Sorry for cursing at the school WiFi, it just sucks…

SENIORITIS

I

n the months leading up to the end of the school year, the twelfth grade class is always plagued by the same ailment: senioritis. The not-so-medically-recognized condition describes the feeling of absolute dread associated with being so close to done with high school, but not quite there yet. Usually, the afflicted fall into a spiral of missing assignments, unexcused absences and a slight GPA dip, but few cases in history have been as serious as one seen this year at West. “I just couldn’t take it anymore,” said Noah Moore ’21. “I had to be done that instant.” Moore is being studied by amateur psychologists as one of the worst cases of senioritis in modern history. “What was really striking to me was how quickly his symptoms appeared and progressed,” said AP Psychology student Amanda Parsons. “He went from minor motivation issues to dropping out in a matter of a couple of weeks.” Looking back at Moore’s gradebook corrob-

SENIOR PRANK’D

E

very year, the senior class joins together for one last hurrah before joining the world outside of high school. Usually, their final efforts are used for destruction, but that was not the case this year. “In the past, we’ve seen everything from animals running amuck in the school to years’ of schoolwork thrown down the stairwells,” said Principal Mitch Gross. “This year’s seniors decided to do something a little different.” The first phase of the “prank” happened on the evening of May 21. When the custodial staff arrived to do overnight cleaning they were met with over 50 students hard at work. “We pranked them so hard,” said John Johnson ’21. “They thought they had a full night of work ahead of them, but we did it all. You should’ve seen the looks on their faces.” Once the custodians understood the situation they were escorted to a the staff lounge where they were given spa treatments by a separate team of seniors. “The shoulder massage I got that night is something I’ll never forget,” said custodian Lindsay LaVar. The next week, on the evening of May 24, staff were shocked to see many elderly community members sitting in the courtyard on seats

spaced six feet apart. They all faced towards a stage where various seniors provided entertainment. “It was so funny,” one senior performer said. “We didn’t even ask for permission to perform for the old folks, we just did it.” A big band performed a few jazz arrangements, various singers gave renditions of popular songs, and even stand-up comic joined the mix. The attendees were elated to have an event to attend. “It was just wonderful,” one community member said. “Me and my friends from Oaknoll came to see my grandson on the trumpet.” While technically neither of these events were sanctioned by the school, some have a hard time recognizing them as pranks. “When I heard that’s what they did I was like, ‘Are you serious,’ because we spray painted a car and drove it to Liberty,” said Hank Pinkerton ’20. Administrators were very happy to have a break from the usual senior shenanigans. “I was very proud of this year’s senior class for doing some good for the community instead of making a huge mess for the janitors as they usually do,” Gross said.

orates Parsons’s narrative. Moore was a 4.0 GPA student until he skipped a math test on the morning of May 21. From there it was all downhill. “It was just like I hit a brick wall and I just didn’t care about math or any school stuff,” Moore said. “Everyone who says I should’ve just held out for two more weeks just doesn’t get it. I had to be done then and there.” Moore’s parents were more shocked than anyone. They never thought that their son would end up dropping out. “We noticed that his grades were dropping, but that happened to me at that age too,” Moore’s mother said. It turned out that Moore’s case was a bit more severe. Despite pseudo-treatment from Parsons, he found himself unable to continue. On the fateful morning of June 2, the second to last day of school, Moore formally dropped out. “I gave high school a shot, but in the end I had to do what makes me happiest,” Moore said.
