High School Seniors Leave School Halls For Last Time

Posted on 16 June 2015 by Editor

Just like that school has ended for many students. The end of high school. All those long mornings of bathroom bustle and dash to the bus stops, agitation over homework, anticipation of snow days, counting out time to the school calendar, all suddenly gone.

The comfortably schedule from childhood through teen years one day ends.

Most Suffern High School seniors saw their last day of school on Monday, with Regents exams scheduled now through June 24. Graduation takes place on June 25. Regular classes are over and that anxious look of wide open, unregulated days has begun to cloud many a teen’s face.


A farewell of sorts from appreciative students of George F. Baker High School in Tuxedo as the school year ends, bringing with it, the end of an era in the small, close knit school district.

Tuxedo’s George F. Baker High School students have experienced a double whammy, with Greenwood Lakes students departing the Tuxedo school district after being part of the community for some 30 years. Nevertheless, the Tuxedo school year has finished on any number of high notes, from Prom to NYC field trips to the recent Baker Benefit Concert and talent show.

The video was produced “on behalf of the student body, both attending and alumni, in response to all that which you have given” to Tuxedo students.

But then there’s the irrepressible presence of Tuxedo’s Band instructor Mr. Head, who’s 2014 video When the Principal Isn’t Here (When Mama Isn’t Home), a take on the When Mama Isn’t Home meme, went viral and has received more than 1,061,684 hits.
