Planning graduation parties comes sooner than expected

As the school year comes to a close, students are already buzzing with excitement as they plan their graduation parties.

“I don’t really have a theme, but it’s going to be a mix of Greenwood and Miami colors. I honestly started planning last May. My favorite part is hard to say because I love so many things about it. I’m super excited for all the food we are having (Mexican, shaved ice, Shirley temple bar) because it’s some of my favorite foods. I’m just really excited to see people and family members that I haven’t seen in a while and get to celebrate my graduation with my friends,” senior Emma Baker said.

Students often serve their favorites to friends and family who come.

“I don’t think I really have a theme for my graduation party, but we have cups saying the tassel was worth the hassle. It took probably a month or two to plan it all out. We started planning for the party towards the end of March. The first thing we started to plan was the food we were going to serve there. My favorite part is the cheese fountain we’re going to have,” senior Doug Hobbs said.

Planning early helps families lower their stress.

“I set my date a year ago so that we could get to work, and I booked the shaved ice truck I ate almost a year ago. The date and the truck are the first things we planned, as I knew I really wanted to have it there,” Baker said.

Sometimes, keeping everything lowkey will make the party go more smoothly.

“I don’t really have a set theme for my party, but we’re using Greenwood colors to decorate. It’s taken about six weeks to plan so far, and we started planning for it in early April. The first thing we really started to plan was the date and then the kind of decorations we were going to use,” senior Cole Basey said.

Even though high school can seem like one of the longest times in a student’s life, it is nice to be able to reminisce about it.

“My favorite part is my guest book. When I was younger, my dad read to me ‘Grover Goes to School’ before the first day of kindergarten. That became a tradition for us, and he read it to me the night before each school year started. We got a copy of that book and are going to have people write notes in it to serve as our guest book. I’m so excited to honor that  tradition with my dad,” Baker said.
