An Open Letter to Seniors
Posted: March 01, 2012 | Written By: Justin Gerwick | Category: Transitions
Senior year is finally here at last! This is the final stretch, and a whirlwind of emotions is upon us. As we prepare for our departure from Sage, I urge everyone to look back on the good memories and look forward to the positive futures before us. Moving on is a scary thing, and can affect everyone differently. It might have hit some of us walking through the doors on the first day of school this year, or it might not hit some of us until we are standing at the podium receiving our diplomas. No matter how long it takes to sink in, the facts simply won’t change. This is our last year at Sage Alliance!
It hit me for the first time when I was helping plan the Halloween party in student council. Everyone was throwing out terrific ideas about games and activities that could take place during the party. Everything was going well until someone mentioned next year’s party, and that’s when I realized I won’t be here to help plan next year’s party, or even be a part of it. This was a hard realization for me. I know that I haven’t been part of this school for very long, but I have gotten so much out of my time and experiences here that I just don’t think I will ever be the same.
Sage Alliance is a wonderful place, and I cannot stress it enough: We should all enjoy our time here while we still can. Senior year is halfway over and there is still so much more to look forward to -- prom, the senior breakfast, the end of the year trip, the end of the year picnic, and most importantly graduation. So let’s not dwell on the fact that we have to leave, but let’s focus on all the good things that are yet to come our way.
I know that as I leave here, I will leave a stronger person than I ever thought that I could be, and I owe it all to this school. I don’t know if all you other seniors feel the way I do, and chances are you probably don’t, but I genuinely hope that we all take something out of our time here, and have happy, healthy and successful futures.
