On Tuesday, Oct. 23 the tradition of seniors leaving their mark took place in the cafeteria after school.

Beginning with the first graduating class in 2009, Paws on the Wall is an activity where seniors meet for a pizza party, and during the party they dip their hands in paint and place handprints on a big white canvas with their graduating year.

French teacher Pam Lynch brainstormed with the 2009 senior class to come up with another event that was only for seniors.

“I thought the seniors would like to leave a legacy behind, and I thought about handprints since we are the Huskies,” Lynch said.

Along with handprints, seniors get to put their own personalized message on the banner, which will be hung up in the cafeteria until next year.

Leadership provided the supplies, and the PTSA organized everything and helped run the event.

“It was just a great experience to be part of and to make memories for our senior year,” senior Alisa Salgado said.
