Letter to seniors

Class of 2021,

It feels very surreal to me to be writing this final letter to you all, especially knowing that we are taking part in our very last year together as a class. I don’t think any of us would’ve believed it should we have been told what the circumstances of our senior year would encompass, but I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all done amazingly well on the front of adjusting. I know it may seem upsetting to think of all the ways in which our final year has already changed or may come to change in the future, but there’s no doubt in my mind that we will not only make the most of the time we have left together, but we will also make that time as purposefully significant as it was always meant to be.

Many of us are now thinking of our lives beyond the walls of LHS, and this, although a time full of excitement and relief, can also prove immensely stressful and a bit incomprehensible. Although I am aware that nothing I can say will entirely alleviate you of these anxieties, just know that we are all experiencing this time together just as we’ve done so for these past four years. Make the most of what little time we have left, even despite all the ways in which our school and world have changed in light of recent months. With this said, I am more than happy to have the privilege of leading our class one final time as we approach the milestone that is graduation, and I hope you all know how much our little community of people means to me and so many others. Good luck with all your academic and extracurricular endeavors, and I hope you have the most incredibly special senior year. You all deserve one.
