Placer High seniors may be counting down the days to graduation, but there are still a few things left to do. According to Neil Polaske, a counselor at the school, Senior Boards are Wednesday. On Wednesday and Thursday, which are minimum days for finals, seniors will go through the checkout process, wrapping up any loose ends and turning in textbooks, Polaske said. Polaske said graduation practice starts at 8 a.m. Friday in the gym. Immediately following the practice is the senior picnic on the practice field next to the football field. Students need to meet at 8 a.m. Saturday in the gym. They will then be seated on the field in Le Febvre Stadium. Graduation starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, Polaske said. Senior Elia Rizas, 18, said she is looking forward to Saturday. “I think we all have a lot of different plans in what we are going to do next and just kind of sharing this moment (is important),” Rizas said. “It’s the last moment together. It’s kind of sad but at the same time it’s really exciting also. I’m not really nervous, I’m more looking forward to it. It’s still not quite a reality yet that it’s been four years already, but I’m looking forward to it very much.” Rizas said she plans to attend UC San Diego in the fall. “My mom and I are going to do a little bit of traveling over the summer and then off to college,” she said. Dan Wilson, journalism and yearbook instructor at Placer High, said all next week seniors can continue to buy yearbooks for $85 each. “They can buy yearbooks up through when they are gone, they are sold out, and that is not going to happen,” Wilson said. Those interested in purchasing a yearbook can stop by room 306 and see Wilson or call the school and dial extension 5743. Reach Bridget Jones at
