Last night was your 5th grade continuation ceremony. We are so proud of you all! It is truly our hope that you visit this blog post periodically forever. You have the unique ability to stay in touch with each other no matter where you go or what you do in life.
Ms. Vander Velde and Mr. Moore have learned that kids we knew as elementary-age students have become some of our very best friends - even the kids we didn't always get along with in elementary school.
So, with that in mind, start treating everyone like they are your best friend. It's how you'd like to be treated by everyone, right?
Begin now, by leaving a comment on this post. In your comment, write a letter to all of your classmates. The letter can be whatever you want it to be, but we understand that your classmates and friends will be looking at this writing for years to come.
Leave us with the very best of yourself - your very best impression - recorded forever in writing for the world to see.
As you move on in life, come back to this post. Let us all know how great you're doing, and check in on everyone else.
We love you all.
~ Mr. Moore and Ms. Vander Velde
PS - We'll be adding some items to this post - pictures, videos, etc., and if you ever send us school-appropriate pictures and things, we can post them for you.
