North Woods Class of 2014
Seniors at North Woods celebrated the beginning of their final year of high school with a banquet in their honor. Classmates created a powerpoint showcasing their baby photos, senior portraits, and favorite photos from previous years. Their advisors shared several senior moments during a skit called, "You Know Who You Are!" Finally, the Class of 2014 looked toward the future and graduation while ordering their caps, gowns, and announcements. The banquet was a great opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of this class, reflect on the past, and focus on the future of the Class of 2014!!! Seniors...enjoy your last year of high school!!!
