Two hundred and seventy four Roslyn High School seniors, dressed in their blue caps and gowns, returned to their elementary schools for the district's much anticipated Senior Walk. The nostalgic procession took place at all three elementary schools, beginning at Heights, where all the seniors walked the halls before splitting up to parade through East Hills or Harbor Hill Elementary Schools.
The seniors, all happy and excited to revisit the classrooms and hallways of their childhoods, were welcomed back by school principals, teachers, staff, Superintendent Allison Brown, and Assistant Superintendents Michael Goldspiel and Karina Baez. As they walked the halls, they were cheered by elementary students who waved pom-pom’s, held up signs, and put their hands out for a high-five.
Roslyn began this tradition in 2017, but had to cancel the event for the past two years due to the pandemic.
“We were thrilled to bring this day back for the senior class of 2022!” said Superintendent Allison Brown. “I saw some happy tears and a lot of big smiles. It’s so sweet to see the faces of the elementary school students as the seniors parade through the hallways; it’s a terrific role model experience for them. We love this day so much because it’s truly the culmination of a job well done by the dedicated people of our district.”
