D211 Post: Ending on a New Tradition


More than 250 Seniors from Palatine and William Fremd High School took part in the first ever District 15 / District 211 Senior Walk where seniors walked the halls of the elementary schools where their education began. 

William Fremd senior Matt Downing said it was great to walk the halls again of Hunting Ridge.

“It was amazing seeing the little kids,” he said.  “It was really something remembering being that young.  Life seemed simple then.”

For Palatine High School senior Megan Farrell, seeing elementary students was very reflective.

“It was something to see the little kids,” she said.  “It’s hard to imagine that at one time I was that kid.”

Palatine High School will hold their graduation ceremony at the school May 19th at 2 p.m.  William Fremd High School will hold their graduation  at the Sears Center May 20th at 7:30 p.m.
