What’s Been Going On: Senior Night

What’s Going On?
It’s the beginning of the end for seniors. The final semester at VHS has begun, and while it might not feel like it, the future is fast approaching. At this time of the year, there isn’t much happening around VHS. Most clubs are still winding back up from the lack of activity over winter break. Preparations are beginning for spring sports and productions. From Varsity Singers to the upcoming April Antics improv show, students are discovering what to do in the final days they have at VHS.
