With seniors reuniting for the first time this year at the annual senior shed painting event, the senior party will be one of the last events where seniors will be reunited.

WJ seniors will be gathering for the Senior Class Party, Aloha WJ Seniors, at High Point Farms. The event will take place on May 15 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the attendants separated into pods of 100.

Many seniors are enthusiastic about the senior class-only event.

“I’m excited for the WJ Senior Party because it will be good to see people I haven’t seen in awhile,” senior Emmie Maisel said.

The party for WJ senior class members only will have a variety of food, games and entertainment. The attendees will be divided into two groups with each group starting in either a food or game site and switching during the event.

The Hawaiian theme event is a parent-led event sponsored by the Post Prom Party Committee of the Walter Johnson PTSA.

“…All the parents on the post prom committee worked really hard and raised a lot of money to make this event happen. There are going to be so many awesome activities, fun food, and cool prizes. After everything we lost this year it’s going to be great to be able to see everyone and just have fun for one of the last times before we graduate,” senior Zoe Matsuzaki said.

Seniors are excited for the event and to finally reconnect with their classmates.

“I would think that WJ students would be excited and hyped up to go to an event, despite the fact that we are still in a pandemic. Most people are vaccinated so it isn’t a problem to most people, but in terms of what WJ students might feel, I think they will be really excited to hang out with different people,” senior Rekab Hailemariam said.

As the school year comes to an end with all the havoc going on, WJ seniors are thrilled to finally reconnect with their classmates at the Hawaiian themed senior class party.
