As high school is coming to an end, seniors are saying their last goodbyes and taking a look back on their journey. Thanks to the Palatine High School yearbook of 2018-2019, students can carry their high school memories with them wherever they go.

“This whole year has been a roller coaster,” senior Brian Sonderegger said. “It doesn’t really hit you until you reach the last of everything that you are actually going to leave this place. And for me, it’s bittersweet, because I know I’m ready to move on in life, but PHS will always have a special place in my heart.”

As this year is coming to an end, seniors are looking back at their most memorable moments from the past four years that will forever impact who they have become and who they will continue to be in the future.

“I think my best memory from high school would probably be my PLTW computer integrated manufacturing class,” senior Josh Soloway said. “I loved designing and building a battlebot, and the project with Northrop Grumman was a blast to work on. It taught me a lot about my future career. That class really helped shape my future and help me decide what to do with my life. Plus, any class with Mr. Larson is always fun. But don’t tell him I said that.”

Oftentimes people joke about wanting to get out of high school, and don’t realize just how much they’ll miss the best four years of their lives.

“I know a lot of people might joke about wanting to get out of high school as soon as possible, but I feel like I’ll without a doubt miss a lot of my classmates, friends, and teachers because they made high school fun and manageable,” senior Monika Juras said.

The yearbook theme this year is Sailing New Seas, and it’s the 90th volume. With a blue cover on the front, the yearbook has an interesting pattern design this year. Many kids are excited and find this yearbook mesmerizing.

“The theme of the yearbook, Sailing New Seas, really spoke to me,” Sonderegger said. “You don’t realize until it’s too late that your high school years are behind you and now it’s time for a new adventure. It’s scary and exciting all at once and the yearbook captured that concoction of feelings quite well.”

As seniors part ways and begin to adventure through life, they part ways but the yearbook helps them remember their high school years.

Sonderegger will be attending Butler University to get a Bachelor of arts in music in hopes of becoming a professional clarinetist. Soloway will be attending Northern Illinois University to study mechanical engineering. And Juras will be attending University of Wisconsin Madison to study chemical engineering.

As students part ways after high school, the yearbook will keep their memories alive forever.
