Dear 7th Grade Community,
What a year it has been. With each new bump in the road or detour we had to take, the 7th graders rose to the challenge. They didn’t only meet their challenges head on… they found a way to thrive each step of the way. No matter the circumstance, the 7th graders approached each assignment, Zoom meeting, and Breakout Room with poise and joy.
I’m so thankful to all of you for helping make this year possible and run as smoothly as it did. I am honored to have worked with these students, and I am eager to see how they fill their new leadership role as the 8th grade class. I am confident that these students will be able to manage the responsibilities that 8th grade brings, and, of course, thrive.
I have come to learn that they take themselves seriously in all the right ways and they don’t take themselves seriously in all the right ways. What a wonderful balance. It’s a hard one to master, but this group always finds a way.
Thanks again. I am very proud of this group of students.
Have a blessed summer, and I hope to see you all in a few short months!
