Cheering high school seniors begin their last 'first day'

Carle Place High School seniors woke with the sun Wednesday to start their last "first day of school" together in a decades-old tradition. Wearing matching black T-shirts emblazoned with the word "Seniors," the students gathered tailgate-style in the school’s parking lot for their signature rite — "Senior Sunrise" — eating breakfast sandwiches and listening to music. They then marched into school and ran through the halls cheering in celebration.  (Credit: Barry Sloan)
