The class poem was written by Hallie Grillot

Light as a feather

When we were Freshmen, we thought we had time,

We wished to graduate, so we would whine.

But it’s a good thing that we had four years,

Cause when the first was done, we shed no tears.

Then we were Sophomores and still so naive.

How could we have let all that time deceive?

To us, high school seemed to be forever,

But looking back, that thought was not clever.

Next we were Juniors and parted our ways:

Some to Upper Valley, while the rest stays.

We were told it would be the best year yet.

Then it was done… we’ll try not to forget.

Here we are Seniors, parting yet again.

Some leave thinking, “Hallelujah, amen!”

But some will leave wishing for one more chance.

One more game. One more class. Just one more dance.

Now that we’re all here and crying real tears,

A good lesson can be learned from our years.

Wishing life past was a dumb endeavor,

For time flies by fast, light as a feather.
