This year the students' studies focused on physical education and health class. They started with basketball
and then moved outside for some soccer.
so the class headed inside for their health lesson.
Class went well until it was time to put the books away and finish class for the day.
Then Bryan and Sierra were at it again. Hope was beyond frustrated with the pair of them. Why wouldn't they just listen and behave themselves? What was it going to take to get through to them that this was no acceptable.
Soon it was the end of the school year and time for graduation. This year three sims were graduating, Violet Cormier, Geneva Rossi, and Owen Rossi. She was proud of all of them and she could tell their family members in the audience were proud as well.
Tosha thought her sister-in-law looked beautiful in her pretty pink dress.
"Please join me in congratulating our graduates and wish them the best as they continue on with their education and the next stage of their lives."
The only thing missing at the graduation was Miss Ebadi. Before her accident, Jessica had talked about having a dance for the high school students. Hope didn't know much about how high school dances were supposed to be, since she came from a hood that was removed from SimNation customs, but the students had a lot of ideas and worked hard to help plan the evening.
They even got the internationally known band Aerial Bionic to play, since band member Gareth Thayer was also uncle to two of the students, Augustus and Sierra.
Owen still hadn't learned that bragging about being a teenage father was not the way to impress the girls.
"I got to go visit Charlotte and the baby, he was so cute. I think he's going to look just like me when he gets older."
At least it was not the way to impress Sierra and she wasn't afraid to say so.
"The two of you were so dumb. How could you get her pregnant? She was way, way too young to have a baby and so are you."
"You don't know what you're talking about! You don't have the right to judge me or Charlotte . . . no wonder nobody likes you . . . Hey, Dana, do you want to dance?"
As chaperone, Hope jumped in. "Bryan Carson! Violet Cormier! Get down from there this instant!"
Violet noticed him giving Sierra the evil eye and stepped in to distract him. She reminded him that they were having a fun night and that they wanted to keep it that way. He agreed knowing that he was already on thin ice after the incident in health class. He was lucky that Miss Miguel let him attend the dance at all. He knew how much this night meant to Violet and didn't want to do anything to ruin it.
Unfortunately, Sierra didn't have anyone to distract her and once Bryan was free for a moment, she started insulting him again. Luckily for Bryan, Miss Miguel was there to witness the whole thing. Sierra clearly was the one instigating their confrontations.
Since she was not making an effort to get along, Hope sent her home. She was not going to tolerate any fighting from either of them any longer.
At midnight the band signed off and the students lined up for pictures before they had to head home and call it a night.
Since they seemed to naturally fall into pairs over the course of the night,
they decided to take pictures as couples.
They each left with a keepsake that some of them would take with them to college next fall and the others would keep as reminders of friends that went ahead while they are finishing their last years of high school.
