Congratulations to the Class of 2019
Dear Class of 2019,
I refer to graduation as "commencement" as it actually represents the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of graduates as they embark on new adventures and opportunities. Last night, you turned the page of your grade school chapter, and are ready to begin brand new ones in high school and beyond. We are so very proud of all your accomplishments!
Remember that you are all shining stars and that you can accomplish all your hopes, dreams, and anything that you set your mind to with hard work, dedication, and determination. High school will bring many new opportunities and challenges for self-discovery, growth, and successes. Don't be afraid to fail, to ask for help, to ask questions, to be safe risk-takers, and to believe in yourselves, because we all (your parents, family, Sion faculty and staff, and friends) believe in you. And, always be kind and compassionate as you remain rooted in Sion.
You were my first middle school class when I first started at Sion, and it has been a pleasure and honor to watch you go through your middle school years, as we both move on to the next phases of our academic and personal journeys. You will be dearly missed!
Sion will forever be your home, so please come visit soon and often. I wish you happiness, joy, love, health, success, and all the absolute best on all your future endeavors. I can't wait to learn about all your success!
Each one of you is absolutely amazing just the way you are! Continue being knowledge seekers, your brother's keepers, and making a positive difference in the world.
