Senior Walk – May 13th
Following graduation practice, seniors will meet for the “Senior Walk” through the elementary schools in the district as a celebration of your accomplishment in Huntley Community School District 158 and as a motivator for our younger students to see the end result of their educational process in D158. Participation in this event is voluntary, but highly encouraged. Watch 2018 Video »
Students who participated last year really enjoyed the event and recommended the tradition continue. This is a great opportunity to see former teachers and celebrate your accomplishment together as well as see the excitement generated in our elementary school students! They view high school students as local celebrities and want to share their excitement for your accomplishment.
*A Google form will be emailed out as we get closer to sign up for the Senior Walk.

Senior Awards Night is Wednesday, May 6th at 6:30 p.m. in the East Gym.
