Farewell and Fare Well

 

I am posting this message on graduation day for the Class of 2011. I commend them for the great year they have had as our student leaders. As with each class at All Saints’, members of this year’s graduating class move on to a world of many exciting possibilities. Our hope is that we have equipped them with the values and skills that will put them in good stead as they consider those possibilities and make choices in the future.

While life is still in its early stages and about new beginnings for our graduates, this day is also about a significant ending. There will be plenty of smiles today but no doubt also a few tears. I prefer to use the word “farewell” rather than “goodbye” on a day like this. This allows me to focus on what is most important–not that our graduates are leaving us but that they “fare well” in school and in life in the days ahead. God bless each member of the All Saints’ Episcopal Day School Class of 2011.

Today is the last day of school for all our students. I hope to check in on this blog a few times this summer as the pace of life at All Saints’ changes until August.

Until next time…

My best,

Leo
