Because this is our first year with a graduating class, our Class of 2013 seniors are busy creating traditions that will strengthen bonds and inspire their younger Star sisters. The Senior Speech is one such tradition. Each week two seniors are scheduled to deliver original speeches that impart a piece of wisdom acquired in their years here at ARS. The topic is up to the student. Students deliver these speeches to an audience of 400 to 700 peers, depending on the day of the week the speech is scheduled.
