Our junior year, the administration tried to appease us by not requiring us to do a Senior Exit Project. Perhaps they mistook us for the last class of the old century, instead of the first class of the new millennium. Or perhaps they had not yet recovered from Freshman Focus.
In our senior year, the administration fought back. They forced us to sit through Planning Team for an hour each week. Were they...
