Senior guys can now participate in the senior shirts tradition
A girl strides onto the Bowie campus, excited to begin her senior year. Written on her shirt is the word “SENIORS” in a bold and colorful font. As she enters the courtyard, she would notice the rest of the senior girls dressed in matching shirts that all proclaimed that they were now in their final year of highschool.
Senior shirts have been a longstanding tradition for senior girls, and they are just one of many special occurrences that make senior year a fun experience. As the Class of 2021 begins to create their own senior shirts, the Class Shirt Committee has announced that for the first time, senior shirts will be designed and sold for guys as well.
“We decided to design senior shirts for guys this year because we noticed last year that some of the guys coordinated their shirts on the first day of school, so we decided to make it easy for them and just make some,” Class Shirt Committee member junior Lexi Hertel said. “Also we wanted [to design] something they can wear for red, black and white out.”
In order to promote the new shirts for guys, the Class Shirt Committee has created an Instagram account, @seniorguys2021, that will be updated with more information as it is available.
“From what I have seen in the past with the senior girls shirts, pretty much every girl gets it, and it kind of unites all of them and is an important tradition,” junior Wes Wasserburger said. “I have no preference for the actual designs, but I trust in the designers to do a good job.”
Hertel explained that the committee hopes to create three final designs for the senior shirts, one of which will be a black jersey.
“I love watching the committee work together and come up with ideas for the shirts,” Class Shirt Committee Sponsor Cathie Johnson-Landers said. “The shirts allow the seniors to show that they are now seniors, and I know that they are something that the students always look forward to each year.”
When the committee finalizes the cost for the senior shirts, the information will be shared via the committee’s Instagram and an update to this story on The Dispatch.
“My favorite part of the design process is just looking for ideas. There are so many [designs] to choose from and we have to keep in mind what guys would like and what they would not like,” Hertel said. “Senior shirts are an important tradition because it just shows everyone that we have worked three hard years to be a senior, and it shows that we only have one more year of our high school careers.”
T-shirt designs kick up a storm of senior activities
As the second semester progresses, some students have another year, two, or three to enjoy the high school experience. Seniors have 14 weeks.
It’s a tradition that Carlmont’s Associated Student Body (ASB) makes sweatshirts and t-shirts for the senior class, according to Isabella Mattioli, a senior in ASB. The sweatshirts were designed and sold last semester. Now, the ASB has started drafting senior t-shirt designs.
On Feb. 27, the first of two or three senior t-shirt brainstorm sessions took place. Rachel.Amir Chatman, senior class president, hoped students could share all their ideas, so the would group have many choices.
“My goal was to get a bunch of designs thrown out there,” Chatman said. “But, in the first couple of minutes, we already had one that people really liked. [I wish] that we had that idea, and then we would have come up with a bunch more.”
Since the first few meetings are closed-door, students found it valuable to think of others who were unable to share their ideas at the meeting.
“I think it’s really important that everyone has a voice,” Mattioli said. “I think that I can play a role in making sure that everyone feels represented by thinking for other people that may have different ideas than myself.”
Varun Hedge, one of the senior vice presidents, said that seniors have been eager to participate in spirit activities because they feel sentimental to be leaving Carlmont. Felix Gandara-Guzman, the Advanced Placement (AP) chemistry teacher, said that he noticed many seniors try to hide their feelings.
“They check out because they don’t want to get too emotional saying goodbye to each other,” Gandara-Guzman said. “I have seen that in my case, there are many students that say ‘hello’ to me until about March […] They start ignoring me because they’re preparing for the moment that they move on, and they don’t want to cry.”
To allow underclassmen to show appreciation for seniors, Chatman is planning to have senior grams in May. Similarly to the recent Valentine’s Day rose sale, underclassmen can write notes to seniors as they prepare to graduate. In April, Carlmont seniors will be able to participate in a game called Senior Assassin.
“Some schools play with floaties or goggles,” Chatman said. “You find a partner, and your goal is to get people out. You do this by shooting them with a mini water gun, but if they have the floaties or the goggles on then, they’re safe.”
With senior t-shirt planning underway, seniors can look forward to both traditional events, such as the Senior Picnic and Senior Recognition Night, and new activities. Gandara-Guzman admires students’ confidence as they conclude their high school careers.
“[Seniors] want to stand out. They like to feel like kings and queens.” Gandara-Guzman said.
