4 advisees move on to high school


a challenge comes,
and we are tested,
and how we respond gives us a chance 
to prove ourselves,

Daniel finds challenges 
each and every day
and he meets each head-on
with a mind so sharp it cuts,
with a heart so full it overflows,
with a soul so good
that entropy has no chance against him.

a smile that can melt you
even when you know 
there could be mischief behind it,
a heart that cares for all,
a mind that learns quickly and deeply,
an athlete who bonds with each team
and loves to run into excellence,
may he always leap for his best
like he does for a frisbee.

within the bud the flower waits,
and then releases into bloom,
in his digital story he describes a younger age
when voices inside held him back,
and then throughout middle school
he learned to deny those negative voices,
this year
the student,
the athlete,
the friend,
has given himself fully into bloom,
and, now, the bloom of his self is wonderful!

a perfectionist who gives her all 
to her classes,
to her friends,
to her dance,
to her acting,
to herself,
Oliver last year,
a "peacock" leader in a play this year,
no one gives herself more fully to life than Mia.
