Dear Students,

You did it! You have made it to summer. Yes, we had a different school year but you rose to the challenge. We wanted to take a moment to reflect on our time together because you matter. Thank you for making our rooms full of life and laughter. Thank you for making us smile, and saying just the perfect thing to bring our spirits up on a bad day. Thank you for sharing your life with the fifth-grade team through writing and conversation. You give our jobs meaning.

We hope you learned something from our class. We hope you learned to like at least one book. We hope that speaking in front of a large group isn't quite so scary now. It is our hope that we showed you that you matter and that you have potential and purpose in life.

You're off now to bigger and better things. In a few short years, you'll say goodbye to high school and hello to the rest of your life. We are so excited to see all the amazing things that you'll do, and the amazing places you'll go. Wherever life takes you, we hope you remember to live fully and enjoy every second of the moment you're in.

So, enjoy it, dear students. Enjoy the time you have here. Make the most of it. Don't wish it away. Laugh daily. Never give up on your dreams because we know that you can accomplish anything.

For now, it's time to say goodbye. Come back and see us at Bel Air. We promise we won't forget you, and we hope you don't forget us either. We can't tell you how much joy it brings us teachers to have a student come back and say hi, or tell us how they're doing. You will forever be a part of our story here. Now go write your own.
