The annual end-of-the-year blog post tends to light upon a few topics: our hopes for the graduating class, our affection for them, our excitement for the rising seniors as they enter their final year of high school, our plans for next year, and congratulations to all for another successful school year. And, you, my lovely readers, have heard my opinions and thoughts on all those topics ad nauseum over the last few years. So, as we end (officially, for us teachers) the 2011-2012 school year, here are the thoughts of some of the other staff members:
I don’t know if I can think of a good story that’s concise and fit for the blog at the moment, but my general impression of the year is that it was an outstanding year full out outstanding students, and that I’ll really miss the seniors, and am looking forward to having the juniors back next year. That’s corny and kind of lame, but it’s true, and what first pops into my head. If I think of a good story, I’ll let you know.
Mrs. LaMonica expressed all the usual feelings about the end of the school year, and in addition, she wanted to share some of her summer plans: What I will do in the summer?- take care of my new “child.”
2011-2012: From Bats to Babies
Mr. Burton began his year exercising the scientific method to study and expatriate a colony of large brown bats from his attic, and ended his year focusing his observation and problem-solving skills on loving his new baby daughter. A lot has changed over the course of the year, and he can’t wait to get started working physics problems and building water balloon launchers with the newest Burton on the block.
We had a truly amazing senior class this year! Brilliant scholars, state and nationally ranked athletes, school and community leaders, and (most importantly) kind and selfless people who want to make a difference in our world. I can’t wait to see what your impact is on our future.
Have a great summer, everyone! We’ll see you in August, when we’ll start our “what did the faculty do this summer?” posts. We’ll also have a couple of new faculty and staff members to introduce in the Fall!
