After four years of hard work, you deserve a group selfie!

The end of your time as a high school student can be overwhelming. After four years of building relationships, studying long hours, and discovering who you are as a person and what kind of person you want to be going forward, you may have a lot to say to sum up the last four years.

But, what if you only had a sentence?

Common Ground seniors took on the challenge of summing up the last four years of their lives at CG in just one sentence. Enjoy!
