"Grateful for Many Reasons"
The class of 2017 is a very special and competitive class. Everyone gets good grades and it has pushed me to do better. I have learned to be a better person and that the world is not all about me. Next year I will be going to St. Francis. I will always remember the great teachers here, and how they all care for each and every student.
If I were to give advice, I would say that everyone should get their homework done as fast as possible and don't just let it lay around.
Also, school is not supposed to be stressful, so don’t make it so. What helps getting rid of stress is thinking about how good you and everyone around you has it. I am a very grateful person for many reasons: I go to a good private school, for one, I have a caring family that has taught me to never give up, and to always do my best.
“If opportunity doesn’t knock - build a door.” – Milton Berle. This [quote] is very meaningful because it is saying that you should put yourself out there, and always give it your all. Don’t be discouraged when things don’t go right the first time, keep trying. I’m going to keep trying as I go off to high school and probably build a lot of doors!
