A Cranberry High School tradition was “well-done” Friday, May 21. An annual end-of-the-year cookout couldn’t have been on a better summer-like day filled with students smiling and laughing together.
“It was cool to eat outside on such a nice day,” said 10th grader Aliah Kay.
The menu for the cookout consisted of hamburgers and hotdogs, prepared by Cranberry’s Principal Ritt Smith and Vice Principal Shawn Deemer. Students were also served a side of chips, macaroni salad, baked beans, lemonade, and a brownie for dessert.
When asked how he felt about cooking for 500 students, Smith said, “It was nice after the year we had to sit down together and enjoy a meal.”
After the students were done eating, they could play yard games like frisbee or cornhole.
Speaking for many of her peers, Hannah Neiderriter said, “I wish we could have more days like this.”
The cookout is an event that signals the end of the school year. It is something that all Cranberry students look forward to and were glad to experience after the harsh year due to Covid-19.
