It’s the last semester of senior year, and like every other senior in the Bainbridge Island School District, we are ready to put on our graduation robes and see our names printed in fancy letters on those diplomas.
But it is time to say two words: Thank you.
Thank you to everyone in the Bainbridge Island School District that has brought us this far. There’s that old saying that it takes a village to raise a child, and on this island that has certainly been true.
There’s a long list of everyone who has supported us. You know who you are: janitors, bus drivers, principals, counselors, librarians, nurses, secretaries, security guards and especially teachers. We are so grateful for your kindness, and for putting up with us every single day, 180 days of the year.
In addition, we’d like to thank the community that so generously supports our schools by funding the specialists we loved in elementary school, funding teacher salaries, and funding the technology we use every day in our classes. You are helping us be prepared for life after BHS.
Here’s to you.
Thank you, and please vote “Yes” for schools on February 14.
