Every year, the yearbook staff works diligently to perfect the school’s yearbook. One page, unique to the Wesleyan yearbook, is the dedication page. The senior class for the year picks a person who they [the class] have found impacted their high school experience in a positive way. that person is given a page in the yearbook dedicated to them.
Having the yearbook dedicated to you is an honor, and the dedicatee gets to be celebrated by the high school students, faculty and the community.
Dear Sophie, Quinn, Alayna, Melany and Kat:
Teaching you has been a true blessing. I am grateful to you all for your endless encouragement. We were new to the high school together and have, in many ways, shared the experience. You have cheered me on in life’s joyous moments and provided comfort in its tragedies.
Although the stomach bug is going around Wesleyan, Senioritis is catching up, taking masses of seniors up in its storm. Senioritis is a disease plaguing second semester seniors across the country. Although some have been infected since August, the disease is just now spreading throughout the entire Wesleyan senior class. The question is: will they make it?
As a Wesleyan tradition, before the start of the school year, the freshman class travels to Carolina Point, North Carolina to get to know their peer leaders and new classmates coming to Wesleyan. This year 26 peer parents, along with high school teachers, traveled with the biggest freshman class to help them make friends while also assuring them that the next four years at Wesleyan will be fun and exciting.
Some of the fun activities the class of 2022 and their peer parents got to do were paddle boarding, go carting, basketball and a big crowd favorite, field day. Freshman Gabby Oakes said, “My favorite thing on the Freshman Retreat was our grade wide shaving cream fight.” In addition to the grade wide activities, peer parents and peer kids enjoyed spending personal time with each other to talk and play games. Senior peer leader Chloe Hangartner said, “My favorite game to play with my peer kids was Psychiatrist.”
