The last day of school is just around the corner, and I want to release a concluding and congratulating message to the class of 2020 and everyone who managed to guide us during our middle school journey. This is a time to reflect on all our past experiences and lessons we have encountered and realize how far we’ve come.

I want you to remember the first day of sixth grade, the start of our journey. Maybe you were excited, maybe you were nervous, and maybe you were filled with curiosity and the desire to see what’s next. Remember the first time you walked into your classes, the first time you received your locker, the first time you got your schedule. 

Day after day, week after week, and eventually month after month, your skills began to build up as you encountered new experiences. You began to recognize what was best for you and the scholars around you. As you made more mistakes, you learned new lessons. And as you applied your best efforts in school, you began to build strengths that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

I want to personally thank the teachers for guiding us with new thrilling knowledge every day. I want to thank all the parents for always being there for us and taking care of us no matter what. I want to thank the office administrators for encouraging us and keeping our school system organized and thriving. And of course, I want to thank the class of 2020, who created memories within the school that will last forever.
