New senior sunrise event more than just fun, games
Cy Springs held its first annual senior sunrise from 6 to 8 a.m. Saturday on the football field. Students were encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to sit down and watch the sunrise. There were games, snacks, picture props, and music for entertainment.
The senior sunrise started off the senior’s last high school year, and there is a plan to have a senior sunset at the end of the school year to finish off the year according to senior class president Karla Rojas.
“I think this senior sunrise is a good way to start off our senior year for sure,” said senior Muskan Chamdal. “It is a great way to start off an even greater year.”
Those who decided to go to the sunrise went for a number of reasons.
“I decided to come to the senior sunrise because it is the first annual senior thing this year,” said Olivia Nolasco. “Also, since we have the sunrise at the beginning of the year, I am hoping we could have a sunset at the end of the year.”
The sunrise had a guest DJ named DJ T-REX that is 11-years old, and attends Smith Middle School.DJ T-REX is the son of Cedrick Thompson, who is the step team sponsor at Cy Springs.
“I became a DJ because I really liked music since I was little. It’s really fun and it’s not hard; just takes a lot of practice,” said DJ T-REX.
Games included three-legged races, potato sack races, wheelbarrow races, connect four, and others. The big prize giveaway was a Bluetooth speaker. The takeaway for many, besides the fun and games, was celebrating what it is to be a senior.
“Being a senior means to be a leader to the underclassmen ;it also means being self accountable and responsible,” said Kaitlyn Page.
