Seniors Go Bowling on “Senior Outing”

by on Friday, April 28th, 2017

High school students all over the country look forward to the day in their senior year when they can skip classes. Typically, a “Senior Skip Day” is where the senior class, as a whole, decides a day on which they will all collectively skip the whole day of school and go somewhere together to have fun. But Milton’s controversial interpretation of skip day seems to vary greatly from most high schools’.

In the past, Milton seniors have gone to a carnival, a tradition that was shut down after 2015. The class of 2016 had a planned skip day that was discussed with administration but also decided that they wanted to have another skip day of their own without waiting for faculty approval. Spending the day on the quad and playing music in front of Forbes, seniors planned a date to skip school through Facebook. As a whole class, students ended up racking in a total of over 100 hours of detention; some even faced other disciplinary actions. As a result, the administration had to institute Sunday detention and many seniors last year feared they would not be able to go on projects.

This year, students and the administration are involved in planning and running skip day by working together in the “Skip Day Committee.” Excited for a final moment of bonding, students set the date for Wednesday, April 26. The planning committee thought of many fun adventures including possibly “renting out a movie theatre for the whole grade or taking a day trip to Six Flags” according to committee member Olivia Zhong (I). The committee all left the first meeting feeling confident with a few, solid, and discussed ideas. However, at the second meeting, the faculty made the decision that the skip day would comprise of a trip to King’s Bowling.

Numerous committee members felt that there was a lack of communication between students and faculty on the final decision of going bowling. The students feel that it was ultimately the faculty’s decision — not their own. One student remarks that bowling was not discussed or even brought up by students during their first meeting. The trip to King’s Bowling has many restrictions as well. Seniors were required to attend first period class, go to second period assembly, and return by 1:30pm for athletics, leaving only a few hours for the trip. According to Mr. Ruiz, seniors are also not allowed to skip the classes on April 28th whatsoever. Some blame the class of 2016’s messy skip day for all of these limitations.

The class is deeming this a “class outing,” not a skip day. Anna Desan (I) called it a “skip two-thirds day.” On top of having to attend classes on their skip day, students feel that having faculty be involved in planning skip day takes away the purpose of having a skip day. Many feel that Senior Skip Day should just be a student event, where seniors can have fun and push classes aside. Nathan Strauss (I) speaks to this effect by saying that “a skip day is one final bonding moment of a class. Having it go through the school detracts from the excitement and bonding that would result from such a day.”

Though many seniors may have expressed negative opinions about their skip day, hopefully they have found it enjoyable as their last outing all together.
