Seniors Celebrate at Diamond View

Matthew Leto, Staff Writer

Thursday morning, 29 seniors met at Diamond View Elementary dressed in their cap and gowns. At the same time, every student in grades K-5 lined up in the hallways of the school.

The graduating senior boys dressed in black and the girls dressed in red to display the Chiefs’ school colors. The seniors lined up in the cafeteria before they would set out on their march around school.

The seniors marched out, led by Homecoming king Nevin Brown and Diamond View’s principal’s daughter Maddy Seal. The children were thrilled once the seniors made their way through the hallways. The halls erupted with cheers, and graduates slapped as many hands as they could during their journey.

This was the first annual senior celebration held at Diamond View, and it was a tremendous success. Both the kids and seniors enjoyed this touching moment.

As the celebration concluded, Principal Robinson spoke briefly to the seniors as they represented Santaluces and left a legacy of commitment to the community.

“You should be really proud of yourselves,” she said.  “You started a tradition.”
