The South Pasadena High School (SPHS) gymnasium became the site of “controlled chaos” as the school held its last assembly of the school year a week ago Thursday, May 30. The Farewell Assembly saw just about the entire student body representing all four grades squeezed into the gym. The assembly also has been called “The Rest of Your Life Assembly” because it’s the last such gathering for the senior class, which went through the graduation ceremony on Wednesday.
