Senior Breakfast: Worth the Wait

Seniors London Cooper and Alexis Bowman pick up their senior treats. Sporting their senior spirit week attire, they add a splash of personality to their days.

Senior year is known to be one of the most fun and stressful years of a student’s high school career. Therefore, there are many specialized events for seniors to celebrate everything they have experienced and everything they are going to experience in the future. One such event is Oviedo High School’s Senior Breakfast event which this year occurred on Wednesday, April 3rd.

Being a Senior can be a great experience because of events like this one. “[Being a senior] it’s one of the best years of high school,” senior Aaliyah Montañez Moran said. Some students, like Senior London Cooper, have looked forward to the events for over a year. “I specifically remember this event from last year because of how many tables and how much good breakfast is served. I was actually most hyped for this event because of how much I can eat, the type of buffet, and I wanted to eat with my friends,” Cooper said. 

This event requires a lot of work to make happen. Stacey Alloway and Monal Patel worked hard to organize the event for the students.

Stacey Alloway, parent of senior Davis Alloway said, “We organized a team and met multiple times to discuss how to make the Senior Breakfast an overall success. We were in constant communication with each other to divide and conquer, reaching out to both parents and the families of our students of the school, as well as local organizations to provide everything needed for the event.” 

The Senior Breakfast featured a variety of sweet treats, like pastries, cookies, donuts. There were also breakfast items such as bacon, coffee, juice, hash browns. Pre-ordered cap and gowns, yard signs, and free senior T-shirts were also available at the event. 

“Everything provided at the Senior Breakfast was either donated by our generous parents and families, local community organizations such as Publix, the Donut Patch, Walmart, Fresh Market, Chicken Salad Chick, Crumble Cookie, and Two Smart Cookies, as well as our PTSA,” Stacey Alloway said.  This event was an undertaking performed through the help of volunteers like these parents and organizations. “My goal is to make sure we have a smooth breakfast experience for the seniors,” Manal Patel, mom of senior Ayan Patel said. 

Overall, the community joined together to create this event for the seniors at our school. The seniors were appreciative of these efforts and were glad to have the time to come together to celebrate their successes. The anticipated event was truly enjoyed by all in attendance and juniors await the day they can enjoy these events.

    It was fun to read about seniors getting to treat themselves and hangout during school hours. I think it’s great that they wrote about how the seniors and parents felt about this breakfast. I’m glad this was a good day for the seniors and a good way for them to have some free time. This was a super good article and put together nicely.

    I loved this article because it really gives a good look into the great things that are planned for seniors every year. It’s cool that they talked about the specific businesses that catered the event. I also liked that the article began by talking about what it’s like to be a senior.

    I enjoyed how this story highlighted the both fun and stressful parts of the highschool experience. Including the companies who donated food and pastries was also a nice thing to include. This story also explained how they are grateful to the parents and how fun the dress code was for this event.

    I like that the school made an event to celebrate all the sensors and all their accomplishments, not overlooking the hard work they put in to get to this point. The fact that there are parents and businesses coming together to give the sensors something to look forward to at the end of the year is amazing. And makes me can’t wait for my turn.

    I think that it’s cool how the seniors can have special events like the senior breakfast or senior week, because I bet they’re already worried about taking the next big step in life and worrying about exams and going to college and having these events or moments are probably giving the best memories to end their high school life with.

    I really like that seniors get this event and be able to have some fun and enjoy a nice breakfast with all their friends before all their exams coming up. This takes their mind off all the studying and eat good prepared by students and different local stores and even some PTSA members.

    Senior breakfest seems like a really fun oppurtunity for seniors to escape their worries about school and their upcoming exams. It is so cool how seniors have oppurtunities that other classes don’t have because they are almost done with their high school lives and it is a great way to honor their time spent in the school.

    Senior Breakfast is something that seems like a great reward for seniors and something they can look forward to so they can rewind and stop the stress for a bit. With AP exams and graduation coming up, I’m sure most seniors are stressed so this could relieve a bit of it.

    Reading this article made me excited for my senior year! Can’t wait to this day and enjoy all that delicious food. I think it’s really a considerate thing to do for the seniors, since senior year can be really terrifying and stressful, since most of us will start being independent after ou graduation. Having all these fun events would give seniors good memories to take away with them in their adult life.

    The senior breakfast is a fun event for our seniors and this article really shows that! I’m so glad our community can come together and reward the seniors with a fun little event like this. The seniors definitely deserve this with all the hard work in high school. I’ll be looking forward to the senior breakfast when I’m a senior.

    It’s cool that there’s a different event for seniors daily in the week leading up to prom. This sounds fun, and it’s nice that parent volunteers worked so hard to put an event on for arguably the most stressed-out students at the school. I’m looking forward to being able to have the senior breakfast myself!
