Approximately 70 Fort Lauderdale High School seniors gathered at the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park this past Saturday, August 21, to celebrate the beginning of their fourth and final year as FLHS students with a Senior Sunset.
The informal event, which was held outdoors, consisted of various games and activities designed to strengthen bonds between seniors, which have frayed over the past year-and-a-half of online school.
Senior class president, Raymond Adderly, who assisted in organizing the evening event, considered it a success.
“The senior sunset was an absolute success and a great kickstarter to the year. I was excited to see people having fun while enjoying time with their classmates.”
Indeed, students were observed playing beach volleyball and spikeball, as well as enjoying music played on small speakers and complimentary water.
While it was originally envisioned to launch biodegradable wishing lanterns, the plans had to be cancelled due to the windy conditions caused by the land breeze. Despite the setback, many seniors stayed until the park closed to get the most out of a great beach day.
