Senior Rights

This year is a struggle for most seniors. We no longer have our rights that we were expecting this year. Ever since we were freshmen, we were excited to be on top of this school and have an easy year. This is not the case. According to Webster Dictionary, a privilege is a right or immunity granted as a peculiar benefit, advantage, or favor. We shouldn't have to pay a fee of ten dollars and complete a specific number of hours of community service in school to maintain our senior open status. Many seniors are taking honor classes, working afterschool to pay for their college tuition, and most importantly kids are trying to get ready for the next step in their lives. Aside from this, senior parking is a very convoluted issue. Not only do seniors have trouble parking in the morning, but those who are getting their parking passes now are unable because of the plethora of juniors taking our spots. We are seniors and we have our rights. We have waited our turn for four years like all of the previous senior classes. But we don't have the same rights as previous senior classes. It's time for a change. We are expecting that the teachers and staff cooperate with us and see this situation from our point of view. This is our last year of high school before we take the last stepping stone to the next chapter in our lives. We need more parking privileges and need to alleviate the requirement of having to do three hours of community service in order to maintain our senior status. If the teachers and staff fail to collaborate with the senior class, we are entitled to receive our payment of ten dollars. If we can't have the privilege, we shouldn't have to pay for something we are not allowed to do.
