West Babylon Senior High School’s Class of 2018 took a walk down memory lane, literally, when they returned to their respective elementary schools for a senior walk on June 11.

Dressed in their caps and gowns, the seniors walked the elementary school hallways before concluding their academic journey in West Babylon. School district administrators, teachers and elementary students lined the hallways in each building to offer their congratulations and well wishes as the seniors begin the next phase of their lives. 

At Tooker Avenue, Forest Avenue, John F. Kennedy, Santapogue and South Bay elementary schools, the soon-to-be graduates had a chance to reconnect with their former teachers and staff, look at old class photographs and reminisce.
