An Open Letter to Second Semester Seniors

We’re almost done. Isn’t it crazy to think about all the time that has passed? The stressful weeks and the fun weekends. All the memories we’ve made together, at school and after. We’re about to go from seeing the same people every single day to meeting a new person every single day we walk to class.

We’re all spreading out, whether it’s across the country or around the world. With our time running out, we shouldn’t take one second for granted.

Thank the teachers who have helped you along the way. Don’t forget that your college acceptances and accomplishments are because of your teachers who have been there for you no matter what and supported you unconditionally.

In these last few weeks, don’t throw everything away.

Continue working hard in your classes, even if only to show respect for your teachers. Make an effort to get to know people outside your close circle of friends and appreciate those who have been there throughout the whole ride.

Pick one teacher and talk to them outside of class.

Do something outside of your comfort zone.

Take a lot of pictures.

Explore your city.

Once you’re gone, the last thing you want is to regret your last few months of high school. So get out there and make sure to make the most of the time you have left at Milken. I know I will.
