Caela McCann ’11 was the creator of the private Facebook group “Senior Girls.” It is exclusive to girls graduating in 2011 at Staples and it oversees the shirt design and selection process.

“I’m good with organizing, I thought we should get the ball rolling,” McCann said.

The process for choosing the shirt this year involved group members posting pictures of possible shirt ideas and then voting for the one they liked the most by “liking” it on Facebook.

There were a couple of occurrences when there were “differences in opinion,” McCann said. “I had to send out an inbox [on Facebook] telling everyone to be respectful,” McCann said.

The design for the first day of school shirt is a bright blue v-neck proclaiming “Senior Girls” on the front and “double the one, double the fun” on the back.

“We plan to do more throughout the year,” McCann said.

The shirts cost $15 and any senior girl is allowed to purchase one.
