Senior Traditions: 

6 Word Memoirs 

During the first week of school, each member of the senior class writes a six-word mantra–a defining quote–on the wall of the Student Center. The mantras remain in place throughout the school year.



Painting the Rock  

Each year, seniors leave their mark on Prep by signing their names on the big red rock in the student parking lot. This signing is followed by an ice cream party.
