Congratulations to the freshman class–you worked together and pulled it off, beating sophomores, juniors, and seniors to win the homecoming decoration competition.
One of the things I love most about teaching freshmen is this time of year–I get to watch a bunch of kids from various middle schools and social cliques put aside their differences and come together with a single identity, a single purpose. Remember: The friendships you form this year will likely carry you through good and bad times for the next four years of your life, and perhaps beyond.
This week, you made some new friends, and this Friday, you made a memory that will last a long time. You did great, and I’m proud of all of you!
