I hope the school year was filled with some wonderfully rich experiences for our entire school community. While it has been a positive year for many of us, it has been a challenging year for some. Hopefully, the end of this year marks positive growth for all: an increase in knowledge, development of a valuable connection with your teachers, and maturity in yourself. Mostly, I hope our seniors go on to do great things; our returning students continue to make a lasting and positive impact on our school; and, our incoming new students access the vast opportunities our comprehensive high school has to offer. That, we all start next year enthusiastic and willing to collaborate, create, and challenge each other to maximize our potential.

Perhaps, Mark Twain conveyed the best notion about leisure time when he said, "Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." Enjoy the time off!
Have a safe, relaxing, and happy summer.
