With summer around the corner and high school coming to an end, Roxbury High School’s senior class is filled with so much joy and excitement as they inch one step closer to graduating. The months of May and June are the best months for seniors starting with commitment day, senior prom, and lastly: graduation. 

Commitment Day

The official college commitment day was May 1st, 2022 and the senior class feels relieved once they make the biggest decision for their futures. They have been working extremely hard throughout their high school career, and they are very relieved to finally get the weight off their shoulders. “I’ve been super relieved since the fall because I was committed then, but seeing everyone else and where they are going is bittersweet. I’m happy for them, but I’m going to miss a lot of people” Ramapo Softball commit Lia Milsom exclaimed. 

Senior Sierra Rogalsky is also looking forward to her bright, incredible future. Rogalsky stated, “For the longest time I was thinking about college and which one I should go to. Since application, I’ve been super conflicted about what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. I put a lot of pressure and stress on myself for months after applying and getting accepted. It wasn’t until recently that I decided where I wanted to go (the day of commitment day, actually). After finally committing, I’ve felt this weight being lifted, and I can finally relax. I don’t have to worry about it anymore.” 

Senior Prom

Senior prom is one of the most superficial events that all high school students are looking forward to. Last year, the class of 2022 was told that they would have to celebrate their first prom wearing masks. As always, all students showed up wearing masks and were only allowed to remove them while eating. With the indoor mask mandate being lifted this year, the senior class is ecstatic. The theme this year will be based on the hit novel and film The Great Gatsby. As the senior prom preparation is coming to an end, students are discovering their perfect dresses or suits and the students are ready to dance all night to make the best memories. 

After asking another student what they’re most excited about graduating from high school, senior student Samantha Lazzara responds, “I can’t wait to go to the beach with all of my friends for one last hoorah before my graduation, and last ever prom.” 


The last ever after the school year officially ends is graduation. The saddest yet happiest time for all parents and staff members as they say goodbye to their sons, daughters, and students one last time before they make their future into a reality. Senior Kaitlyn Mcgowan was interviewed about her upcoming graduation. “I’m most excited to hang out with friends and have a great time. It’s sad to know that high school is ending and graduation is right around the corner but I can’t wait to see what the future holds for myself and my classmates!”
