Senior Clap Out

   On Friday-21-June Seniors of the Bogota  High School Class of 2019  donned their Cap and Gowns early and toured the Elementary Schools  of Bogota. These are the same schools many attended years ago. They started at Steen walking up the stairs and back into site of past classrooms.  When all the Students were gathered  by the Main Office, they began their walk through the school. They were led by Steen Principal Dayle Santoro and High School Principal Kelly Foley DeCongelio down the same hallways used when they first entered the Bogota School System. Lining the hallways were the Students and teachers giving the High Schoolers applause as they walked by. The younger Students looked up in awe of these giants who entered their school to show what lies ahead. When the Seniors walk by the Sixth Grade class of Steen, the Student were given a first hand view of the footsteps they will be following in for the 2019-20 School year.
   Then they travel to Bixby School, with Principal Damon Englese welcoming the soon to be Graduates. They were met with similar applause they received from the first stop  as they continued through the building.  At both schools there were moments to be shared with former Teachers. Many of those teachers now looking up their past Students. Quick stories were shared about; “Do you remember when...”  “ Look at how  you have grown..” And how happy and proud they are of them as they start a new part of their lives. Some of the Seniors would get hugs from younger  Sibling, or other Children of  Family friends. A few would show the emotion of what this memory will be in the years ahead.  
  They closed the circle by returning to walk the halls of Bogota High School  for one last time. They were greeted by the underclassmen, who lined the halls to give them a final send off. This also gave the Seniors a chance to say one more goodbye to the Teachers and Staff they have shared the last four to six years with. Then, the Class of 2019,were off to rehearse  their Commencement Program suddenly only just a few hours in the future.
   The Bogota Board of Education has announced the Bogota High School Class of 2019 Commencement Ceremony on Friday-21-June will take place in Speary Gym of Bogota High School.
