As usual, the school year started at the crack of dawn for the senior class at Runnels High School. Following tradition, they arrived on campus by 6:20 a.m. for “Senior Sunrise” to watch the sun come up together on the first day of their final year of high school. In May, they’ll gather on campus at dusk on their last day of school to observe “Senior Sunset.”

Joining the seniors were Head of School and Jr./Sr. High Principal Conchetta Foshee and Jr./Sr. High Assistant Principals Pamela Babcock and Dana Schlotterer.

In addition to greeting the dawn, attendees had a chance to reconnect with classmates and faculty and enjoy a breakfast hosted by senior class sponsors Nicole Latiolais and Colleen Spillane. On the menu were Chick-n-Minis, pigs in a blanket, fruit, yogurt, donuts, cinnamon rolls Starbucks iced coffee drinks, assorted juices, and milk.

The students listened to music, took keepsake photos, and wrote notes to themselves, which they’ll open at “Senior Sunset.”
