Cat Gerbino

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Cat, the one and only Shakespeare & Velma Kelly!!!! I’m so so so grateful to have been in Chicago and Something Rotten with you, you're such an incredibly amazing and talented dancer and actor. Your dedication and hard-work to every single production you're in is something I really look up to, and I’m gonna miss you so much next year. Even though I'm going to miss gossiping with the cast and vlogging during tech with you, I know you're going to do incredible things at USC!! Keep in touch, love you <3 

 

Ceci Hirawat: cat!!! i love u and i am so lucky to know you; i'm going to miss our debriefs and hallway chats and i hope you're already expecting many a phone call :) you are seriously one of the most talented, creative, and driven people i've ever met and i am so lucky i have been able to watch you grow as an artist and a person. i cannot wait to see all the incredible things you do, and i hope you don't forget us when you're famous :) love u lots!

Colette Gentile: Catherine Gerbino. I actually cannot believe you are graduating so soon! Since my freshman year, thank you for being a great friend. I’m always in awe of your performances on stage, and it’s so much fun catching up when we get the chance, especially that time we were supposed to be hanging up posters for “Clue” but we ended up sharing stories nearly the whole time as we strolled all the way around different parts of campus. It’s been amazing seeing everything you’ve accomplished so far, and I know college is going to be even better. I’m going to miss you so much next year, and your amazing outfits, and your awesome choreography, but drama school awaits. Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Mia Ramos: Cat I do not know what we are going to do without you next year. I love every moment we spent together over the last two years and I cant wait to see all of the amazing things you will do. You are so amazingly talented and a complete triple threat. Expect many texts about ITW rehearsals while you are killing it at USC! Remember me when you're famous <3
 

Priyana Manglani: Hey Cat! Thank you so much for being such a great senior sister this year! You were incredible in "She Kills Monsters" (I only went to "She Kills Monsters" but I'm sure you were amazing in "Something Rotten" as well.) Good luck in college!
 

Lorelei Gustafson-Johnson: CAT!! I am so lucky to have worked on FIVE different shows (counting beauty and the beast jr over the summer!) in the past few years!! :) You are such a talented dancer, actor, and singer #triplethreat -- it's an honor to have worked with you! I know you will just thrive at USC, but I'm gonna miss you so much. I'm especially gonna miss all the fun backstage moments and fun tech week photos we take :( Please make sure to come and visit us and see the shows!! ESPECIALLY ITW!! -- oh also please make sure to pull up for auditions to come and watch/help out 😆 Sending you love and best wishes for college 💗💗 We're all gonna miss you!

Ceci Hirawat: andrea! you are one of the sweetest, most incredible people and bonding with you in costa rica was an absolute 10/10 experience :) from fighting you off as a bugbear to singing unwritten with you, your energy never fails to brighten every room you're in, and i have no doubt you are going to do incredible things at dartmouth. love you longtime!

Jasmine Wolstenholme: Andrea!!! You are literally the kindest person ever, you always have a smile and warm word to those around you!!! I’m so happy I got to get to know you in Costa Rica, and wish you the best at Dartmouth next year!!
 

Mia Ramos: Andrea! you are the kindest person I have ever met and I am so proud of everything you have accomplished. You truly never fail to make me smile and I know you'll do big things at Dartmouth. You are not only an incredible bugbear but also an incredible singer and I am so grateful I have gotten the chance to know you. I am going to miss you and your enthusiasm so much next year!
 

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Andrea!!!!! I'm so so grateful I've gotten to know you over these past 2 years!!! You were INCREDIBLE in Chicago, and I've absolutely loved having you as my Pep Squad leader!!! You're genuinely the sweetest person ever with so much enthusiasm, and I adore your style!! Like I said to you earlier, you're SO Dartmouth, so I just know you're going to do amazing there!!! Goodluck, and keep in touch!!! <3
 

Isabella Deng: Hi Andrea! I've always admired you in Calc and Chamber this year. You're super smart, attentive, and a great singer! You did a really great job with your solo at STAR this year, and hope you have a nice time in college!
 

Zoë Espiritu: hi andrea, you are so amazing and talented! i am grateful to have met you my freshman year. you have always treated me with kindness and have the brightest smile. i am glad to have done Chamber Singers with you, and i am happy to be in both Treblemakers and Pep Squad with you. you'll do amazing things at dartmouth!!

 

Mira Emany: Happy Graduation! I hope you had an amazing few years at Kent Place. Thank you for being an amazing senior sister. Good luck in college!

Colette Gentile: Andrea! How are you already graduating?? I still remember auditions for “Silent Sky” two years ago and how you were one of the first students I ever met here, and then on closing night of the play when you dragged me to watch the ten-minute version of “All Too Well” (see the attached picture! I think it’s the first one I have of us). From “Hello Girls” to dance tech, I was so grateful to have you as a friend then, and I’m even more grateful to have you as a friend now. You are the absolute sweetest person ever and you are going to do amazing things. I am going to miss you so much next year, especially in the Soprano 2 section of Chorale, but I promise to keep in touch...as long as you answer the call. Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Evelyn Hickey

Jordan Hall: Good luck at college!

Carolina Ikuno

Allie Ha: CAROLINA, heyaaa, thanks for letting me walk you to the senior lounge all the time lol. I hate (no hate) how you're such a secret keeper and would not spill any of the beans😫😫 . I really hope you told her about how she's such a rizzler. Thanks for being such a SPECTACULAR senior bestie and... GOOOOOOOOO QUAKERSSS ‼️‼️‼️

 

Amirah Ali: Crew was so much fun this year thanks to you. Despite having boring tasks being able to do them with you made it so much more fun. I will miss holding boards with you next year and have fun in college.
 

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Carolina!!! I'm so grateful I got to know you these past 2 years, you're such an amazingly talented artist. Seriously, every design you make for kps theater is absolutely stunning and jaw-dropping. You're always so excited about the shows too, so congrats on being such an excellent hype man!! Good luck at Penn, and keep in touch!!!
 

Colette Gentile: Carolina! To the best French Club Co-President EVER, I canot believe you are graduating so soon! Thank you for being an amazing friend and classmate. I am always in awe of how talented and smart you are (seriously- coder? painter? Set designer? Singer? The list goes on!) but I am most in awe of how selfless you are. You have no idea how much it has meant to me to have someone who was always there to answer my last minute calls and questions when I had them, even if you were on the dance floor or at a hotel room late at night. I am going to miss you so much next year (and it’s definitely going to be difficult to top your amazing baguettes and French cheeses for club meetings), so please promise to visit us once in a while! I know you’re going to do great things. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)
 

Laila Gandhi: Hi Carolina! I have really enjoyed being your freshman sister this year! You have been so kind to me and I hope you have the best time at college! I hope to be as good as a senior sister as you were!
 

Mia Ramos: Carolina! You are not only beyond kind, but you are also beyond talented. Your art never fails to amaze me and I will wish your amazing set designs next year. Your enthusiasm is infectious and you truly are KP theaters biggest fan. I will miss you so much next year! Kill it @ PENN
 

Nia Gitau: Hi Carolina, it was so much fun doing all the Compsci electives with you this year! Thanks for being so kind and always giving great advice. I’m going to miss your beautiful singing and great sense of humor. I’m so excited to see what you do in college – have fun at Penn!
 

Phoebe Kanellakos: Congratulations Carolina! I will miss you so much next year. Love you :)
 

Phoebe Krowitz: Thanks for being such a great squash captain! Good luck at UPenn next year!
 

Talia Sarafian: Carolina. You are one of the sweetest people ever, and I still remember how you made me feel comfortable and welcomed on my first day at squash tryouts last year. Next year, the absence of your positive, bubbly energy and incessant yapping will leave a hole in the fabric of the team. You’ve been so supportive and fun to be around, and I will always look back fondly on our carpool karaoke memories. Thank you for all your course selection advice even though I forgot it all and didn’t follow any of it. When Phoebe and I rapped, “We made this rap for you, but you deserve the world and more” we meant it; we will all miss you so much next year! Best of luck at uPenn! <3 Talia

Stephanie James

Ananya Mehta: Hii, I am so glad you are my senior sister this year and I loved seeing you like everyday for some reason in the halls. Even though we didn't get to spend too much time outside of school it was great to know I would always have someone to drive me to Starbucks after school(which we should def do soon). I hope you have a great time at Villanova and thanks for introducing me to the place I will spend my next three years at, see you soon - Ananya

 

Isabella Deng: Hi Stephanie, thanks for being a great Div-Co Prez this year! I really enjoyed going to the meetings this year and they were organized really well. I've always admired your confidence and humor, and winning that scavenger hunt with you was fun. Have a good college experience!

Jasmine Wolstenholme: Hi Anjali!! I’m so happy I got to know you at soccer, good luck and congrats at college!!!

Colette Gentile: Sonali! I am SO grateful we had math and French together this year. I love our chit chats about class (even if we don’t always know what’s going) and the fact that you are so much fun and that I can always count on you. If you ever happen to need any photoshopping done in college, you know who to call. I’m going to miss you next year, so please come back and visit! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Mia Ramos: VANESSAAAAAAAAAAA! I don't know what we will do without our amazing stage manager. You truly hold everything together and I am so beyond grateful. I love every moment we have spent together this year, whether we are back stage, in the theater office, or in the hallway I know we will never run out of things to talk about. I am going to miss tech days without you, but don't worry I will continue to play our amazing music. I look forward to all of your text messages and I hope they don't stop when you are making us proud @ vassar

 

Siena Shah: Hi Vanessa, I loved meeting you this year!! Thank you for reaching out to me before school and making my freshman year experience so much better and more comfortable!

You’re so incredibly talented and hard working, and I’m so glad that I got to work with you this year! From Mock Trial to Chamber Singers, you always put 110% into everything you do, and it’s clear to everyone around you. You’ve been such a big role model for me this year, especially in mock trial, and I can’t wait to see what you do next!! Good Luck at Princeton, Mock On!!!

Evelyn Grissinger: Gabby!!!! i’ve loved seeing you around the halls and on my dog walks these past few years. the energy you bring to everything makes one of the coolest people ever!! congrats on princeton and i wish all the best in college!

Isabella Deng: Hey Gabbyyyyy!! Thanks for being a great friend this year! I'll admit that was a little bit scared of you as a freshmen, but that def changed as I got to know you better! From helping me with my History 9 EOL during our KP Singers EOL w/ Diana to Music for Change to your constant friendliness and confidence, you genuinely inspire me every time I get to talk to you. It never fails to brighten up my day whenever you say Hi! and your smile makes everyone else smile. I hope you have an amazing time at Princeton (and lower your gmail screen time) and get to come back to see us crush it at both STAR and Music For Change next year 💪 :)

 

katie mackay: heyyyyyyyy gabby!!!! i wanted to start off by saying that u are an amazing person and i am so grateful and proud know u and be friends. seriously like u have so many like good qualities that i literally marvel at. ur smart and hardworking and good at talking to people and funny and nice and a good friend and honest and outspoken and sweet and u match my energy and cool and friendly to ppl u dont know and literally like the epitome of a good person and i could keep going but then the note would be even longer than it is. i am like overflowing with pride for u and thats kinda weird bc im like 4 years younger than u but like whatever uve always treated me like ur friend and some baby little freshie or middle schooler (when i met u and said my name was gabby) and even when i first met u like i could tell u were cool and funny and now that ur all grown up and are gonna graduate im really sad but happy because u deserve everything and you work so hard its like impressive and i will hug u so tight when u graduate but ur gonna do so well and i cant wait to see how u succeed. im gonna miss u so much ☹️happy grad gabby!!!

Priyana Manglani: GABBYY!!!! I am going to miss you so so much! You were an incredible Mock Trial captain and I have learned so much from you. You have inspired me and I will continue with Mock Trial for the rest of high school. CONGRATS ON PRINCETON!!!! You're going to do amazing! Good luck with college and please visit!!!

Allie Ha: GABBY DABBY BABBY, Heyyy ! Thanks for being a role model and the one to always put me in my place when I say something outta pocket. It's so fun third wheelin you and your "lauver" (get it... lauver - laufey). Anyways, you're actually so inspiring and mature, and I'm aiming to have the drive and determination you always have when you set your mind on something. Don't leave to get milk for too long, and don't hurt your eyes reading emails for over 3 hours. It's funny freaking you out (in a healthy way lol). You're such a great friend and role model, love you soo much and don't forget to visit me at Princeton too (get it... cause' i live on princeton rd). This is from your toob twin, have fun at smart kid nerdy college ! GOOOOOOO TIGERS 🐯🐯🐯 !!!!!!

Allison Ameo: Hi Gabby! I just wanted to say thank you so much for being an amazing friend, Mock Trial leader & overall person. You've done so much for the team - not just been a leader but a funny, confident friend to us all. The team will never be the same without you! <2

Emma Cardoso: Hi Gabby! Thank you for being a great senior sister! You always have the best advice. You were a great help and made me feel so comfortable transitioning into 9th grade! I hope you enjoy yourself in college!

Vivienne Vengroff: Gabby, You are such a fun and extraordinary person. Your extravagance will shine through wherever you are. Keep being you!

Talia Sarafian: You are my icon. You are so insanely smart and an INSANELY good singer. As a singer myself, I look up to you and aspire to someday develop even just 1% of your capabilities. Kent Place will miss you, except for Ms. Bianco because of your constant stream of questions that are so high-level that even Steve Jobs probably wouldn’t be able to answer them. You better keep that going at Princeton – the day you shut up will be a sad day for humanity because I’m sure your inquisitive nature and amazing voice will lead you to do amazing things. -Talia

Mia Ramos: Gabby thank you so much for everything you have done for our mock trial team. You are the most amazing lawyer and such a hard worker. I look up to you so much and am continuously inspired by you. You are the most dedicated, helpful, charismatic person and I am so glad I got the privilege to know you. I will miss your party bus rides home from big mock trial wins. Expect many mock trial related texts next year. I'll miss you so much, but I know you're doing big things!

Nia Gitau: Hi Gabby, you’ve been a huge inspiration to me throughout our shared time at Kent Place. From Mock Trial to Chorale, you have always been kind, understanding, and a wonderful leader. You’re genuinely one of the most talented, funny, and intelligent people I have ever met and I know you’re going to do amazing things at Princeton. I’m going to miss you so much!

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Gabby!!! I'm so so so grateful I got to know you this year during Mock Trial!!! You're such an incredibly talented lawyer and Mock Trial leader, we couldn't have done it this year without you. On top of that, you're a CRAZY amazing singer???? She does it all. You're so funny and always make our Mock Trial meetings & competitions so much fun, things really won't be the same without you next year. I'm seriously going to miss you and your Mock Trial announcements, bus ride parties, and everything else. Goodluck at Princeton, especially on their Mock Trial team, and keep in touch!!! Love you <2

Alex Jones: Hi Gabs :D!! I'm gonna miss u so much when u leave for Princeton. You've been an amazing mentor on the swim team for me and just generally a really good friend since I met you. Have fun :) (but pls visit i'll miss u too much).

Drew Henry: I'll miss bio with you Gabby! I hope you find out how they juice those dragons - Drew

Colette Gentile: May it please the court, members of the jury, opposing counsel, and Gabrielle Liberman. I cannot believe this is our third year doing a lot of things together: Chorale, math, and of course, Mock Trial. From eating cold fries from the Committed Pig during County Finals two years ago, to our late night phone calls as co-counsels last year, to taking down every one of your iconic (and occasionally unhinged quotes this year), you have consistently made me laugh without fail. Not to mention, I am always impressed by your dedication to Mock Trial and how you are so passionate about it. You are funny, you are smart, and–how can I forget?–aggressively smooth. You have helped me out as a shy freshman witness to being Director of Outreach and everything in between. There is no one I would rather laugh about bad Mock Trial jokes and…research a certain school with. Bask in your sassiness, ask those rhetorical questions, and if I ever lose MyKPS, I know where I can find one. I’ll miss you next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Isha Talpade: Gabby!!! My oh my has our bio table triumphed, succeed, thrived and most importantly bonded. You truly are an amazing person...your love for learning inspires me and I know you will be up to great things in the coming years. Have a fantastic time next year and please visit once in a while. :) 

Ally Longo

Jasmine Wolstenholme: Hi Ally! So happy I got to know you at soccer (and occasionally history club) over the last few years, congrats and good luck at Colgate!!

Kaitlyn Troiano: Thank you so much for welcoming me into a new environment, you are so sweet and kind. I loved playing Kent Place soccer with u! You were an amazing captain and made soccer so much fun and exciting. I learned so much this year from you on and off the field. I am really going to miss you next year, but I wish you good luck in collage and hope you have a spectacular time at Colgate!

Kai Markley

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: KAI!!!!!! It's my fav puritan!!! I’m so so so grateful to have been in Chicago and Something Rotten with you, and that we met and became friends. You’re hilarious and an incredibly talented actor, along with being a super incredible Mock Star leader!! You genuinely make me laugh so hard, and always cheer me up. Your hard-work and dedication to each and every single one of your roles along with Mock Trial is amazing and so inspirational. I honestly don't know how I'm going to do next years musical & Mock Trial season without you, I'm gonna miss you so much. Even though I wish you could stay for longer, I know you’re going to kill it at Tufts next year - stay in touch!!! Love you lots <333

Allison Ameo: Kai! Thank you so much for being an amazing Mock Trial Leader, friend, and inspiration these past two years. You're always there, inside and outside of Mock Trial, to give pep talks and humor whenever needed. Thank you for being such an awesome friend to everyone you've ever known. I know you'll have an amazing time at Tufts!!

Colette Gentile: Kai. Oh. My. Gosh. I actually cannot believe you are graduating in just a few weeks. It feels unreal that the first time we met was over fours years ago during GLI, and I remember thinking that you seemed so cool and smart. And I was right! I’m even more glad that I’ve been friends with you for so long too. From our crazy scenes in theater to rocking the mock and laughing about silly moments on trial, I am grateful for the memories we made, and for the fact that I know I can come to you know matter what. You are so supportive and understanding - truly, you are the BEST cheerleader I could ever ask for, and I am beyond grateful for your pep talks and support, whether it is in the middle of a competition or while we’re on the bus and you’re calling in from living your best life in France. I am going to miss you and catching up with you in the hall SO MUCH next year, but you are going to do great things. Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Ceci Hirawat: KAI! you are one of my best friends and i am so lucky to have gotten to know you over the past few years :) from carpools to room-cleanings to hot chocolate runs, i know i can always rely on you and your friendship has been one of the best parts of my life. i can't wait to go visit you (often, don't worry) and hear all about the incredible things i have no doubt you'll be doing! you are such an inspiration for me and i wouldn't have our friendship any other way. i love you so so much, go jumbos!

Claire Cherill: Kai, It's crazy to think the first time we ever had a one-on-one conversation was only a year ago and across an ocean. I don't think I got closer to anyone as quickly as I did to you on that trip. Late nights bonding over horrible twilight movies and some (creative) photography are memories I will never forget. That trip truly is my Roman Empire (unlike yours which is, literally, the Roman Empire). I am always astounded by your deep interests and connections to the things that you love (ex. columns, Doctor Who) and your same dedication to your friends and those around you. I don't think I know anyone else who can go from being the voice of reason to that of chaos so quickly. I'm going to miss our Latin talks and frantic show debriefs, but I'm sure they will live on even outside of the Kent Place hallways. You are such an incredible person and an even better friend, and I know that you will do amazing things in college and beyond. Best of luck, and don't forget to watch out for any environmentalists come over from Freiburg!

Lorelei Gustafson-Johnson: KAI!! I am so lucky to have met you last year and have done FOUR KPS productions with you! You are an amazingly talented actor (this applies to mock star too of course -- your "Dev-on" (yes that pronunciation) Morris was absolutely hilarious and so well done) and I am so fortunate to have worked with you. My favorite show with you was definitely Clue; I loved being "searching the mansion" buddies!! 😊 I am going to miss you sooo much next year Kai, so please make sure to come back and visit! ...and make sure to come see ITW and LW! I also hope to see you there at auditions to help Lesnik/watch 👀! I also wanted to say... thank you so much for always giving me the best pep talks before anything that is nerve wracking (Mock Trial, KP shows, life, etc.), you always put my mind at ease!! Seriously though, before the semi-finals I was SOOO nervous and you totally calmed me down -- thats a serious talent and always so helpful, so thank you so much 💗!! Anyway... I know you will go on to do amazing things at Tufts :) Please make sure to write me and update me on college life... I wanna hear all about it! I'm going to miss you so much Kai!!

Mia Ramos: KAI! you are spectacular, not only off and on stage, but also in court. Being a witness with you during my first year in mock trial has been a dream come true and I will forever value the nervous moments together before finding out the verdict. I loved doing shows with you these last two years and I am so proud of everything you have accomplished. You're going to do amazing things at tufts!

Nia Gitau: Hi Kai, you’ve always been such an easy person to be around, and I’m always going to remember your kindness and encouraging spirit. Congrats on graduating and I can’t wait to see what incredible things you’ll do at Tufts!

Willa: Hi kai I am sooo glad that you were at my table this year in apes it would not have been the same without you like actually.

Kendi Littletree: Hi Kai! Thank you so much for being a cool senior sibling this year! I was super lucky to be with someone with similar interests, such as theater. I think you are super talented and whether or not you decide to pursue theater in the future, I have confidence that you will succeed. Also, CONGRATS BEING THIRD IN THE STATE FOR MOCK TRIAL! Thank you for also listening to friend drama and offering some solid advice. Good luck going forward!

Julia Messerman

Amelia Ing: Hi Julia!! Thank you for being such an amazing senior sister. My first year at Kent would've been a lot more difficult without your help. I know you'll be great in college and beyond that. Thank you so much again for everything this year, you were the best senior sister I could've asked for!

Cassie Miller

Angela Hong: Hi Cassie! Thank you for being a wonderful Science Club Leader! I will miss talking to you and asking you so many questions! Thank you for helping me in Computer Science and Multi, and I'm so thankful for all the advice you have given me. Good luck in college!!

Colette Gentile: Cassie! I am so glad I got to know you this year. Thank you for being such a friendly (and funny) table mate in math and for being there to cheer me on through AP Chemistry when I need it most. I know I can always count on you no matter what, and I am definitely going to miss you next year. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Isabella Deng: CASSSSISIIEEE! So glad I got to know you this year! You are always rlly friendly, funny, lively, and super duper smart #STEMinist. Thanks for all the great advice you've given me abt my classes, and I'll miss just seeing you in the halls and giving you any updates on JR year. I can tell that you're so insanely passionate and committed about whatever you do--whether that be com serv or science--and thats really admirable. Congrats on John Hopkins, you deserve it so much, and I hope you visit!!

Margeaux Morial

Maya Hardy: MARGAUX!! I'm going to miss you so much next year. Thank you for always being someone that I could talk to about anything and being such a fun person to be around. You give the best advice and I will miss our car rides and talks soo much. I know you are going to do so amazing at Howard.

Nia Gitau: Hi Margeaux, thanks for always being a friendly face in the hallways and at BCA! I had so much fun going to SDLC with you last year and having you in my math this year, and I’m going to miss your jokes and great energy. Have fun in college!

Vivienne Vengroff: Dear Margeaux, Having you as a senior sister has been so special. A lot of girls had senior sisters who never talked to them or only talked to them sometimes. But that's not the case with you. I could tell how much you cared about being a good senior sister by how you would make an effort to say "hi" to me every time you saw me at school. That attitude and compassion for me, is exactly how I want to act when I get a freshman sister in three years. And even outside of school, like at Jack and Jill or at the Trattoria, you would still be kind even though you didn't have to. I am so so so sad to see you leave but I know that you will be amazing, caring, and passionate wherever you are for the rest of your life. I hope you will remember me as an example of how your kind actions truly impact those around you. Your essence is the perfect combination of extraordinary and comforting. Thank you so much for everything, keep being you! Love, Vivienne

Angelica Nwachuku

Ananya Mehta: Hii Angelica, I'm so happy you were my senior sister this year!!

Sophia DiSarno: Angelica, I don’t even know where to start. I am going to miss you SO much next year. Thanks for always being so real and someone I can count on to talk to, about track or anything KP. Penn got the absolute best and you’re going to kill it next year.

Annabelle O'Brien 

Chloe Poole: Yay! You made it! Congrats on BC!! You'll have so much fun and I know you'll do great there! You were the best peer ed leader ever and you always made it so entertaning!

I'm going to miss you so much and catching up in the hallways. You're going to do amazing in college! Good luck and please visit!!!

Lauren Osuala

Alex Jones: HIIIII LAUREN!!!! I'm gonna miss my literal Kent Place big sister. Every time we see each other in the hallways you've never once missed saying hi to me and that says a lot about the kind of person you are. I think your very sweet and kind, and I know you'll continue to be that everywhere you go :D. Love you!!!

Kyrae: I wish you the best in your future life!! Congratulations on college, and I know you’ll do amazing things!!!

My'Asia Bennett: Hey Lauren! This year has gone by extremeeeeeely fast and I can't believe I'm saying bye to you soon. You've made this year so much better for me, more than you even know. I'm so glad I got a senior sister like you, someone who is so similar to me. You're really a huge inspiration for me. Even though I hate to say goodbye, I know you will make it to wherever and whatever you want to be after KPS. If you continue volleyball, best believe I'll be the first one in the stands watching. Please keep in touch! Love you!

Nia Gitau: Hi Lauren, thanks for being so kind to me since my first day at Kent Place! Seeing you in the hallways always brightens my day, and I’m going to miss your presence at KPS so much. Enjoy college!

Nia McDaniel: Hi Lauren! I'm so glad I got to know you this year. Thank you for always being so kind to me and always saying hi to me in the hallways. I'll miss seeing you around next year and have a wonderful time in college!

Vivienne Vengroff: Dear Lauren, I hope you know that you are loved by the freshman class. Thank you for being fun, kind, fierce, and beautiful inside and out. It was so fun to see you at teen conference!! Love, Vivienne

Kara Pantozzi

Chloe Cranmer: Hi Kara! I wish you the best at college and you were such a good senior sister.

Kaitlyn Wang: KARAAAA! Orchestra will not be the same without you! The three of us have been together for a while and I'm gonna miss that so much next year. I wish you all the best with your future endeavors! Wish us luck with the freshmen :))

Sawyer Pappas

Talia Sarafian: Sawyer, I’ve really enjoyed having squash with you these past two years. Your deadpan humor is going to be missed, but I’m glad we at least have Willa to be your successor. Don’t worry I can train her. I will miss you next year at nationals, though I can’t say I’ll particularly miss the long car rides with Piper where we would all marinate in uncomfortable silence until someone said something, and then we would be silent again. But that’s okay because I’m not always much of a big talker and I’d fall asleep most of the time anyways. In all seriousness, you are incredibly sweet, smart, and funny, and I hope you have so much fun at UNC. And I’m expecting your name in astrophysics textbooks within the next 20 years. Good luck, but you won’t need it. <3 Talia

Allie Ha: Heya Sawyer badoyer,
Thanks for being the literal best senior sister I could ask for, and this isn't just simple and shallow flattery okay? I hear how most freshmen's senior sisters don't talk to them 💀, so I honestly feel so honored to be really REALLY REALLY good friends with you. Now, I have unleashed the inner beast within me and you have finally seen my true colors (I SWEAR I'M NOT WIERD). You still owe me that tennis match, but I too still owe you a treat to our next hangout. Hopefully you know my entire life story as I promised from the beginning of the year, and I'm still waiting to meet your sister and have that family dinner. Don't leave for college too long mom, I'm gonna miss you, just remember that neglect is not good and you've GYATTT to visit every day. Don't work too hard, love ya, and stay a mogger, mugger, and all of the above. I think you should give me your wardrobe. I'll miss you a lot and will talk about you to the freshmen class next year to carry your legacy on. Never stop fluting. GOOO TARR HEELSSS.

(i found my other earring !!!!!!!!)

Shriya Patel

Sophia Gandhi: Shriya - I don't even know where to begin. I cannot believe you are graduating HIGH SCHOOL. Our days of bharatnatym and bollywood dance with Ms. Aditi feel like just yesterday. I'll never forget practices in your basement next to the containers of labelled towels and doctors coats. I know you are going to do AMAZING things in college and beyond, best of luck at Lehigh!

Maddie Popolow

Ava Kwon: Thank you for much for being such a great senior sister. I’m so excited to see what you accomplish as you move forward to college! So happy for you and congrats 😊

Colette Gentile: Maddie! It has been AWESOME getting to know you. I don’t think you realize how funny you are, especially on the rare occasion you start singing STAR songs in class. Not only that, but I’m grateful for our Math Lab debriefs. Even when I’m stressed about some wacky questions, thanks for being there to make me feel seen and heard and for making me laugh. I’m going to miss you next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Sophia Gandhi: Maddie - thank you for being such an awesome flag football team captain! You are an incredible role model, and truly embody what it means to be a student-athlete at KPS. You are amazing both on the field and off, and the team is going to miss you so much next year. Thank you for always leading and encouraging us, and I know you are going to be amazing at UPenn.

Angela Hong: Hi Maddie! Thank you for being a wonderful Math, History, and Science Club leader! I will miss your entertaining conservations at our Multi table, and good luck in college!!

Phoebe Kanellakos: Congratulations Emma Claire! I will miss you so much next year! Good luck at BC :)

Diana Reig

Evelyn Melendi: Hi Diana - You were an amazing science olympiad leader this year and I had so much fun being on the team with you. You were so helpful with everything. Good luck next year!

Gracen Hill: Hi Diana! you've been so nice to me and a great senior sister! have fun at college!

Isabella Deng: *DIANNNAAAAAAAAAAAA* (sing that to the one direction song "Diana" in your head while reading this), I'm so so happy I've gotten to know you better this year thru Coriste and just seeing you around! I've always enjoyed our tea spilling at Coriste and discussing all things chemistry🧏‍♂️ . You are always so sweet and kindhearted, and it never fails to brighten my day whenever we say Hi to each other in the halls or in the library. Your passion and hard work has always inspired me, whether that be with piano, infertility awareness, com serv, and more, and thanks so much for all the advice youve given me abt kps classes! Congrats on UMich, you deserve it so so much! can't wait to see all the things you'll do: I can see the headline already "Dr.Reig eradicates Cancer". Bacteria better watch out for this genius. 🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️🙅‍♀️

Nia Gitau: Hey Diana, thanks for being a great Science Olympiad captain and friend! You’re genuinely one of the kindest and smartest people I know, and you have such a calming presence. I’m going to miss you so much, and I can’t wait to see what you do at UMich!

Olivia Zhang: Diana, this is a bittersweet moment. I'm so sad to see you go, yet incredibly happy to witness all your hardwork and dedication pay off. You've been an extraordinary mentor and have given me some of the most invaluable advice. I have no doubt that you will achieve anything and everything that you set your mind to, and I eagerly anticipate the day you come back. You serve as a huge inspiration and deserve everything the world has to offer.

Sophia Gandhi: DIANA! I always feared this day would come :( It has been absolutely incredible to get to know you over the past couple years through tennis. You are such a kind and caring person, and I am going to miss you so much next year. I love seeing you in the halls everyday because you have the cutest little wave, and I had the best time playing tennis with you and your parents. Thank you for everything, from laughing over PSAT memes at tennis to helping me with AP chem. The Reig family has nothing short of the most kind-hearted and genuine people I've ever met 💗 You are so incredibly smart and I know you are going to do the most incredible things in college and beyond. Please come back and visit!

Angela Hong: Hi Diana! Thank you for being a wonderful Science Olympiad leader! I will miss sitting next to you and chatting with you in Computer Science! Good luck in college!!

Claire Cherill: Diana,
I still remember the first time we ever played together in KPK. I was in third grade, and you were in fifth. You would always leave a little before me, and I was always so sad when your mom and this Jacquelyn girl came to pick you up. Years later, I'm still sad to see you go, this time from Kent Place entirely as you move on to college. As a bio goddess and comp sci queen, I know that you will do amazing things at Michigan and beyond. Science Olympiad will miss you dearly, and we will never be the same without your keep calm and think about trees attitude. I'll miss you and best of luck!

Rachel Reiter

Allison Ameo: Hiiiii Rachel!! A SENIOR?!?! YOU?!?! no... You'll always be a junior in Orchestra to me; though your flute-faking skills have quite improved. I remember when you encouraged me to go out for Mock Trial, when you gave me a hug because I had thought I got a minor and was crying, (almost, if i hadn't died so many times) crushing you in laser tag, and laughing every day in Orchestra because of you. Thank you for being such an awesome friend these past two years and I will miss you so much next fall!

Ceci Hirawat: rachel!! i love u so much and i'm so grateful to have gone through 4 years of phases with you :) excited for our last panera-beach summer and i can't wait to hear all about college when you're home! please don't get almost arrested :)

Charlotte Rodemich: Hey! Joining in new this year, you have helped me so much to adjust to Kent Place! The first week of activities was really fun and I am very thankful for your help. I hope you have a great summer and good luck! Thank you so much!

Claire Cherill: Rachel,
I have had the most fun getting to know you and be your friend these past years. From laser tag fun to orchestra shenanigans I always know it's going to be a great time. I'm going to miss your humor and knowing looks, and the hilarity of our little flute section. It's not going to be the same without you next year. I cannot wait to see what you do in college and beyond, and I wish you the best of luck.

Isabella Deng: Hey Rachellll!!! Glad that being in AP Chem together and chaperoning the (extremely lame and forgettable🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄) middle school dance this year + our "shared life circumstances" if you know what I mean have brought us together! You are so so smart and nice, and I always really enjoy getting to talk to you! Bonding (chem pun intended) as chaperones was so fun and i enjoyed our tea spilling :) I will def take your advice abt choosing colleges next year into consideration, and hope you have a magnificent Oberlin experience!

Sajni Shah

Angela Mathew: Thanks for all the support you've shown me this year. Wish I spent more time with you and come visit me. You're gonna rock it at Cornell.

Claire Cherill: Sajni,

It's been wonderful getting to know you these past years. Though we've had our fair share of awkward conversations, I've always felt we had a sense of solidarity, as we have quite a lot in common. I always appreciate your sense of humor and our occasional shared knowing looks. You've been an incredible Science Olympiad captain and teammate, and things won't be the same without you. I can't wait to see the things you do in college, best of luck!

Colette Gentile: Sajni! You are one of the coolest people I know and I'm glad to have been in math with you this year. You are such an inspiration and I loved getting to see your project on machine learning (which was so impressive!!) I'm going to miss you next year. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Dvita Bhattacharya: Sajni, my friend, my co-researcher, my future family member,
I am so happy that I got to know you these last 3 years. You've been the best Science Olympiad captain and have always been there for us with advice, random conversations and awkward emotional support. You're one of the smartest people I know and I hope that you'll use your powers of engineering for good in the future, and not to construct killer bots. You've been a part of my Kent Place journey since I first joined this school, and I can't imagine not seeing your face in the halls next year. Science Olympiad won't be the same without having out-of-pocket conversations with you and pestering you to introduce me to your family :( Regardless, I know you're going to do amazing things in college and I can't wait to visit you at Cornell (and UT Austin).

Evelyn Melendi: Hi Sajni - It was so much fun being in science olympiad with you the past two years and you were such a great leader. Good luck in college!

Medha Sahay: Sajni, you are so nice and smart! I thoroughly enjoyed briefly being on A :) Have fun at Cornell!

Nia Gitau: Hey Sajni, from robotics to Science Olympiad, you’ve been such a great role model and friend for the past three years. I can’t wait to see what amazing things you do at Cornell!

Angela Hong: Hi Sajni! Thank you for being a wonderful Science Olympiad leader! I will miss asking you so many questions and thank you for helping me with Multi this year! Good luck in college!!

Shivani Shah

Colette Gentile: Shivani! You cooked. You served. You ate. You made multi so much fun this year, and now you’re off to college! I am really glad to have gotten to know you, because you are so cool and honestly never fail to crack me up. Not to mention, I always LOVE your outfits. And if you ever decide on some multi-inspired baby names (Lambda? Rho?) or find yourself in the trenches of academia, know that I’m here cheering you along. I am going to miss you so much next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Katherine Mao: Hey, Shivani! It was great to have you as my Senior Sister for my freshman year! I wish you the best of luck in college and I know you'll do great!

Maya Shpilsky

Deysi: You were such an amazing saber captain the past two years. You taught me so much and I wouldn't have the skills I have now without your guidance throughout my freshmen and sophomore years. You'll do great in college :)

Sam: Hi Maya! You're the best senior sister ever. Lunch was a lot of fun(even if we only ever talked about Mr. Obod's), and I loved making pinterest boards in FAB. Thanks so much for picking me up outside the CFI that one time; congrats on Cornell!

Taylor Sieg

Annette Hickey: Good luck at Charleston Taylor!! They're so lucky to have you on their team but, i'm still making you come back next year to play with me.

Charlotte Forde: Thank you for being a great senior sister!! You are so sweet and made my transition to KPS so much easier! Good luck at Charleston! You will do great things!

Colette Gentile: Taylor! From one “Amour Plastique” fan to another, I am so grateful to have gotten to know you in French this year. You are kind and absolutely hilarious - seriously, whenever we were paired together for practice conversations, it was so much fun seeing what ridiculous advice and wacky scenarios we could come up with. I’ll definitely miss watching all of those music videos in class with you (and requesting a certain one, of course) next year, but I know you’re going to do great things. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Louisa Gordon: Taylor!! golf has been so much fun with you the past 3 years, i'm going to miss you next year! -Louisa

Sophia Gandhi: I am going to miss you so so much next year Sarah. Thank you for always looking out for me and being an amazing student-athlete role model.

Amirah Ali: Mock trial has been so much fun and cramming for roles we just found out we might play was stressful but doing it with you made it realy fun. I will miss having you on the team next year!

Colette Gentile: Katie! I am really lucky to have gotten to know you. From math, to chatting about Evening of Dance, to giving me advice on the CHP (and our shared book), you have been so nice to me, and always made me feel welcome and seen. I am going to miss you so much next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Lorelei Gustafson-Johnson: KATIE -- MY FAVORITE MOCK STAR!! I am so grateful I was able to do Mock Trial with you this year!! I had an amazing time on the team working with you and everyone 😆 I also wanted to say thank you so much for saving me during the competition I was away -- I know you absolutely KILLED IT and were such a #mock_star 🌟 You truly play the best trust fund sympathetic and likable frat bro ever (that phrase is a mouthful and some parts of that definitely conflict, but YOU DID IT AND YOU SLAYED IT!! :)) I know you'll do amazing in college (YAY BC!!) -- please make sure to come back and visit!!! I'm going to miss you so much!! ❤️💛

Mame Somuah: Dear Katie,

Colette Gentile: Brooke! It is INSANE to me that you are graduating soon!! I will never forget our incredible male harmonies from “Hello Girls” (and those lovely, stylish, totally very comfortable pants). I will never forget “Chicago” with you, or “Clue,” or any other production, or how you have been a wonderful friend to me since we first met when I was a freshman. It has truly meant the world to me to have you by my side. I am going to miss you so much in Chorale and in general next year, but you are going to do great things. I promise I’ll keep in touch, but make sure to answer the call! Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Angela Hong: MIRANDAAAAA! Thank you for being a wonderful and amazing Windward Leader, Community Service President, and friend! I will miss talking to you, asking you so many questions, our weird conversations/jokes, and laughing with you! Thank you soo much for all the advice you have given me, and I won't forget all the weird trends and Discord messages you have shown me. I enjoyed sitting and playing with you in Orchestra (remember how all our music fell during STAR?), and don't worry, I was never laughing at you when we were playing together. :)) I will never forget our Chinese New Year trio, or how you decided to not play with Maya and I at the Chinese New Year Assembly. But anyways, I will miss you so, sooo much and good luck in college, and remember to visit me sometime!! Also, we should have our spice competition that has been delayed for quite some time, and don't get drunk when you drink beer (aka Kombucha) :)))
Ok, I know this is probably too short, but don't worry, I'll write a long letter for you soon! :DDD

Chloe Poole: Miranda!! I'm going to miss walking to your house and trying to find you as you're all the way up slayton! Squash was so fun with u and nationals was even better! Getting your lisence in august is crazy but you're so close! I bet you'll be a great driver! or a terrible one who knows?! Have so much fun at collage!!! love ya!

Claire Cherill: Miranda,
It has been such a pleasure to get to know you, and have the privilege to learn from you these past years. I am truly convinced there is nothing that you cannot (and do not) do. From your amazing ethics skills, your scientific prowess, to community service reign you are truly a renaissance student and one of the most ambitious and well-rounded people I know. In everything you do, I feel like there is something to gain from following your example. Beyond your academic weaponry, you are also so incredibly kind and funny. You are such an amazing person to be around and the school is not going to be the same without you next year. I cannot wait to see what you do in college and beyond as I'm sure it's going to be something spectacular. I wish you the very best of luck!

Colette Gentile: Miranda! Thank you for being such a kind classmate these past few years. You are so smart and so friendly, and an absolute math ICON. When you change the math world someday, I cannot wait to brag and say I knew you as my opposite expert witness in Mock Trial in high school. I am going to miss you so much next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Hailey Downey: miranda, thank you for being an amazing community service president! you are so sweet and i am going to miss you next year!

Katie Mackay: MIRANDAAAAAAA!!! U DID IT! U GRADUATEDDDDD!!! im so super duper proud of u and i am writing this note basically to thank u and to wish u good luck forever. u r such a good and sweet perosn and i gonna miss u on ethics bowl and our little chats in the hallway and wish u all the best in college! YASSSSSS HAPPY GRAD RANDY!!!

Nia Gitau: Miranda! You have been such a great Community Service leader for the past year. Beyond that, you’re also one of the sweetest and smartest people I’ve had the privilege of meeting. I’m going to miss you so much, and I’m wishing you the best in college!

Olivia Zhang: Miranda, I will be counting down the days until you return from college. I can't express enough gratitude for all the support and guidance you've shown me this past year. Besides being an incredibly gifted person, you've become like a big sister to me. I can only hope to be a small reflection of the amazing person you are today. I'm confident you'll overcome any obstacle in your path and achieve phenomenal success. I will miss you so incredibly much - make sure to stay in touch.

Talia Sarafian: MIRANDA!! You are so smart, kind, and funny and you have a very unique aura. You made me feel comfortable from day 1 and I’ve always enjoyed our matches together. Looking back on all the conversations, laughs, and memories we’ve shared together, I’m absolutely distraught that you are leaving next year and we won’t be able to share even more. I know you’re like really smart and everything and could probably go straight to grad school right now and still be in the top 1%, but maybe you should consider repeating your senior year so you can stay a little longer. Kent Place squash will miss its favorite ethics beast next year. (miranda > ayushi any day) <3 Talia

Natalie Weker

Allison Ameo: Weker! You've been a hilarious (even if that humor is sometimes questionable) and friendly face since I've known you. Thank you for being caring, someone to laugh with, and giving me the nickname LJ when we first met. You're going to do amazing things in Scotland but I'll miss you a ton!

Claire Cherill: Natalie,

I have been putting off writing this note for the last as I knew it would be the hardest one. I chose to finally type this out while talking to you (5/12, check the receipts, you'll laugh), and you kept asking what I was working on. It's hard to keep a straight face and not give away what I'm doing, though I'm pretty sure you're onto me already. Even while looking at you it's hard to think of what to say, as there is so much. But for the sake of word count and consideration for other readers, I'll keep it short.
To begin, you should know that you are one of the most incredible, kind, funny, intelligent, and wonderful people I know. When I think of you I, remember hot summer days exploring the streets of Germany and Switzerland, and recall even hotter nights trying to figure out how to turn off the stupid heated towel rack. I think the bonding over that hotel room, which I am still convinced smelled like black pepper, may have been the catalyst for our friendship. I didn't think the smell of spices and sauna-like heat could ever result in so much joy, or that I could be so grateful for it. If we had not become close over that trip I doubt I would be the same person today. Whenever I am unsure of what to do next, or just want to share random updates about my day, you are always the first person to come to mind. You have helped me grow in so many ways, as a person, a student (thank you again for the help with derivatives), and beyond. No matter the reason, I know you are always there to support me, with a hug, explaining some math, or even a well-timed joke.
Next year, once we are no longer in the same place every day, things will be different but I'm sure that being your friend will be no less wonderful. I am so glad to have gotten close to you this year, and cannot wait to see how things grow and change for the better in the future. I look forward to more days of laughing over candied canned yams, environmentalists, choices regarding cats, and (unfortunately.) eggs. I am positive that you are going to do amazing things in college and beyond, and wish you the very best of luck, though I doubt you'll even need it. No one deserves the wonderful things ahead as much as you do. <3

Evelyn Melendi: Hi Natalie - I had such a great time in science olympiad with you. You were an amazing leader too. Good luck in college!

Jasmine Wolstenholme: Natalie… Hysterical, hardworking, heartfelt, heroic, hip. Thank you for being such an incredible soccer caption, and JSA leader! GOOD LUCK at St. Andrews, physics legend!!
 

Medha Sahay: Natalie, I'm so grateful that I got to sit with you in comp sci! You're a great Starboard EIC and you will do amazing things at St. Andrews :)

Nia Gitau: Hi Natalie! I can’t believe you’re graduating already! Though at times your sense of humor can be jarring, you’ve truly had a (mostly) positive impact on my KPS experience. Thanks for giving me good advice, braving the Montclair bus with me, and overall having such a fun and lighthearted presence. I already know I’m going to miss you so much. Have fun doing crazy physics at St. Andrews!!

Angela Hong: Hi Natalie! Thank you for being a wonderful Science Olympiad leader! I enjoyed being in the same Multi and Computer Science class with you! Good luck in college!!

Colette Gentile: Natalie - bonjour, mon ami! My favorite Woman in Physics™ - I don't need to attend a Night of Deliberation to prove that, though I would anyway. I am so glad we had math and French together this year, because t’s been nice having you as a friend in both classes. You are funny, you are smart, and I can count on you to make me laugh or fill me in about anything. Class is definitely going to feel empty without you next year, and I am going to miss you so much. PLEASE come back from the UK so we can go to Club Convergence again! Bonne chance à l’université and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Julia Wu

Justine Wu: I’ve many bad opinions about you, especially after you smashed whipped cream into my hair. Still, you’re the only person, apart from our parents, who knows about my weird interests, so I hope you don’t underestimate our bond. Since you’re my sister, you’re basically my pre-programmed bestie, so I’m sad to see u go, but I wish you the best <3

Sarina Sheth: Thank you Julia for being so welcoming as my senior sister! It was lovely meeting you and I really appreciated you always being a friendly face in the hallways. Good luck and wishing you all the best!

Isabella Deng: JULIAOIAIAIAIIAAIAIAA YFGUIHUOIJHUIGYFUGIHOIUGIYHOU. Let me start this Sis note but saying how absolutley ICONIC you are in every shape, way, or form--from aceing and crocheting during Calculus to throwing cough drops during STAR. You are lit my unhinged counterpart and i am so sad that you are leaving meeee :((((. I am so happy that being in the same calc class has brought us together--i couldnt have passed calc without you even though you absolutley completley oblierated and ruined the curve (#smhhhh 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦). You are super duper smart, so kind, and your talents are super admireable #Steminist #braveANDbrilliant. I am so thankful for your help with some of my classwork and your advice on stuff this year :). I will miss just talking to you when I see you around or spamming you unhinged yet memorable photos, personality quizzes, memes, cat photos, AP RIZZ practice tests, feedback requests for my solo at STAR, screen time stuff, you get the gist. I've always enjoyed talking to you about random things and wondering about the wonderful world of Reddit and your childhood. But anyways, wherever you go I will be WUHUUUUING (get it???) for you and have leHIGH hopes for you!!! Never forget to speak up, and Congrats on graduating!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you will visit (or Lehighs gonna get a surprise visitor /ominous//////) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Morwen Xu

Amel Jean Baptiste: Thanks for being my senior sister! I hope you have a good time at college!!

Claire Cherill: Morwen,
It's been so much fun getting to know you this year. Even though we didn't start talking until what feels like pretty recently, I've always felt like we were able to have such honest and interesting conversations. I'm going to miss our school trips and shared frees. I know you're going to do amazing things in college and beyond, best of luck!

Colette Gentile: Morwen! Thank you for being such a friendly and supportive classmate these past couple years! I am lucky to have gotten to know you. I know you’re going to do awesome things in the future. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Isabella Deng: Heyyy MORWENNTTT!! I'm glad I got to know you better starting from commencement last year, when we talked abt genshin and how you almost traded Xiao for your left eye.....You are super duper ubber smart, friendly, nice, and I've always enjoyed talking to you this year by the bench! Thanks so much for all the advice you've given me this year and I have fortunately now learned not to place as much pressure on grades :). I have you have an amoizing time at RPI and become a super Stemmy women.

Nia Gitau: Hi Morwen, I’m so glad we became friends over the last few years! Have an amazing time at RPI – I’m going to miss you!

 Maya Yie

Angela Mathew: I've been so lucky to have known you this year. You never fail to amaze me. I will miss seeing you in track. Good luck in college! Come visit me!!

Colette Gentile: Maya! I cannot believe you are going off to college next year! I am so grateful to have been friends with you these past few years. You are an insanely good Mock Trial witness and an incredible violinist and composer. I'm always amazed by how talent, smart, and kind you are! I'm going to miss you next year. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Drew Henry: Congrats Maya!!! I'll miss having soccer with you as well as hearing your debates in bio. Good luck with everything - Drew

Jahnavi Ponnolu: Hi Maya! CONGRATULATIONS ON GRADUATING!! You have been an amazing senior sister and you are so amazingly talented. I hope you have the best time at your college. Orchestra and Ballast will be missing a great leader. :)

Jasmine Wolstenholme: HII MAYA!!!! OMG, I am going to miss you so much! You are truly the most incredible person ever. Funny, kind, compassionate, hardworking, so smart, literal best ever! Thank you for some amazing memories as co-goalies and good luck at college, you’re going to crush it!

Nia Gitau: Hi Maya, you’re truly such a talented and inspiring person. Good luck in college – I know you’ll do great things!

Angela Hong: Hi MAYAAA! Thank you for being a wonderful and amazing Ballast EIC and Orchestra President! I will miss talking to you, asking you so many questions, and our random conversations! Thank you soo much for helping me in Music Theory (I would fail MSM theory classes without your help) and for all the advice you have given me! Thanks for always accompanying me at lunch at 1:25, and I will never forget our Arts Festival Performance last year and our Chinese New Year duet and trio. I also enjoyed participating in biology competitions with you! I will miss you so, so much and good luck in college and remember to sleep earlier!! (Don't worry, I will too, hopefully) :DDD
Also, remember to visit me sometime!!

Anna Gambuzza: It is so fun doing track with you and talking on all of our runs!

Isabella Deng: MAYA. Ma Yi. 🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜🐜Mama Yie. Maayayyayayayyayaayyaa. Yie Zi the Leaf Queen. Before you start reading this, please keep in mind that I wrote this SIS note in mind for it to be the LONGEST SIS NOTE KNOWN TO MANKIND sooo buckle up and perhaps grab a few tissues because I know you're gonna cry. Picture this. You're a sophomore strolling down a beautiful hallway, soaking up that ancient, brave and brilliant, air, enjoying your day when BOOM! Some really tall, 5'5 freshmen (now 5'7 junior) comes up to you and asks for you to sign some petition. You look down at that petition, and you see some strange unhinged threatening message about it threatening to gouge your eyeballs out or something of that sort (even though I OBJECT and claim it was something silly about taking away your cookies !!!!!). Whatever the petition wrote, you were a little-slightly shocked, and on the car ride home that day, you can't help but ponder to yourself "WHO WAS THAT PERSON, and WHAT DO THEY WANT FROM ME?????" This interesting feeling about me was soon amplified when we were on spring track together later that year and I sent you a gamepigeon word hunt very out of the blue that you STILL havent responded to despite my constant cajoling and begging :(((. But regardless, I'm sooo happy we became good friends in sophomore year--as you wrote with your own blood/black gel pen in my yearbook, our friendship has been quite--"interesting"--to say the least. It's fun doing the weird side eye glance/glare/eyebrow raise that we do when we see each other in the halls (i think im cursed to bump into both you and angela all the time....) , and I'd say we have an "interesting" (word of the month!) tendency to be paired with each other--from the fact that we shared our solo at STAR to how we were right next to each other in our articles in the KPS magazine. Jokes aside, you are genuinley one of the most special people I have ever met. You are so so amazingly kind, mature, empathetic and wise. Being friends with you has helped me see the world in different ways, and thank you for all the support you've given me--you have defintley had an lasting impact on me :). When the "incident" happened, you were always there for me and I'm so grateful for your kindness and support. I've learned so much from our friendship and im so incredibly happy we became friends. I will miss just seeing you around in your little usual study spots, or you screaming "isaBELLLAAAA!!!" whenever I've said something even remotely slightly unhinged (which happens a lot), glaring at each other as our eyes beg and grapple for an explanation to why the other is coming down to lunch at 1:25am due to an enormous amount of hw, our hugs and life conversations, or recieving your incredibly formal, SAT grammar section level perfection texts and emails in response to my much more colorful and energetic ones. You've made a huge impact on both me and KPS, and I can't wait to see what you do in whatever college you go bcuz yOu StILl woN't tElL mE 😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕😕. But wherever you decide to go, just know that they are insanely lucky to have you and I know you'll be amazing and succeed whereever you go :). Never be afraid to use your voice, and just try not to get too caught up in working so much and solving all the worlds issues and trying to completely eradicate world hunger and winning a grammy at the same time and being your little overachiever self that you forget to lay back once in a while. Anyways, while this note isn't blurry like my other notes, while it is a LOT longer, and I sure hope that at least a singular tear has shed by now. Or maybe you're doing that weird thing where you want to laugh at one of my jokes but they're too innapropriate so you do this weird thing where you just pucker your face, shake your head and sigh aggressively, and roll your eyes. But regardless, just know that you are an amazing and special person, and as much as I wish you would maybe fail PE and stay at KPS, we will all miss you a lot but I know you will be magnificent and iconic at your next destination :). Love you and don't forget to keep in touch :)). (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Gray Young

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Gray!!!!!! I'm so so so happy & grateful I got to know you this year, you're genuinely such an amazing person. DEA has been so much fun with you as our leader, and I don't know how we're gonna go on without you here. I absolutely love our chats in the hallways, you're so sweet and I'm obsessed with your fashion + hair!! You always know how to make me feel better or to lend a listening ear, which I'm incredibly grateful for. I'm going to miss you so so much next year, but even so, I know you're going to do amazing in college!!!! Love you <33

Annabelle Lesnik: Thank you for being a great senior sibling this year! Good luck on your future!

Ava Zinna

Avery Delaney: Thanks for being the best senior sister, I love Senate with you!

Colette Gentile: Ava! It’s crazy to me how long we’ve technically known each other - over 10 years(?), back from when we used to dance together and our families went to the Park Avenue Club when we were really little. I’m glad to have gotten to know you better in math these past three years! My friend once told me I was basically you in a different font, which I take as the highest compliment because you are insanely smart, fashionable, and talented. Thank you for always believing in my AP Chemistry skills before I even took the class and for encouraging me no matter what. I’ll miss you in math next year! Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Annalisa Abbate

Nia Gitau: Hi Annalisa, it’s been so fun being on Mock Trial with you for the past two years! You’re such a sweet and genuine person, and I’m really glad I’ve gotten to know you. Wishing you the best at Cornell, and I hope to see the Mock Trial Musical in theaters one day :)

Rowan Tabora: Thank you so much for being an amazing comp sci buddy, I'm definitely gonna miss our laughs and working with you to debug codes,. You're such a supportive and positive person who lights up the room and I hope you have an amazing next four <3

Kavya Ballal: Hi Annalisa! Thanks for being a good senior sister, it was helpful learning information from you and talking to you at the beginning of the year. I also enjoyed going to Windward. Wishing you the best on your college journey!

Amirah Ali: I know i already wrote you a letter but I wanted to say how amazing you are. In mock trial you were always coming up with new ideas and managed to be likable despite being on trial for fraud. You have always been someone who I've looked up to and good luck wherever you go.

Colette Gentile: Annalisa Abbate. Mockstar. Rockstar. Like, an actual rockstar, a guitarist, singer-songwriter, star of my personal favorite one-woman show: Mock Trial: The Musical. It’s so strange to me that our first practice together was so long ago, when we were both starting out on the Mock Trial team. And it’s even more strange that this year was the only time we worked together! Nevertheless, I looked up to you as a freshman, and last year, and now. I have seen you tackle the toughest roles, from an unassuming pawn shop clerk, to a silly social media influencer, to the one and only Ellis Kirwin (who WAS found not guilty!). You are kind and smart and so dedicated to everything you do. I’m so grateful to have gotten to know you, and I’m going to miss you SO much next year. Please come back and visit us and do encore performances of your hit song (I know I’ll be waiting!). Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Anna Aggarwal

Chloe Poole: Have an awesome time a college Anna! You were such a good senior sister and I loved doing the activities with you from the beginning of the year! Good luck with whatever you do! You got this!!

Sofia Wanosky: Dear Anna, It was so much fun running cross country and track with you. Despite the challenges, it was great getting to know you, and I wish you all the best in college!

Jasmine Algarin

Alex Jones: HIII JASMINE! I love you so much and hope you have a great time at college :) I'll always remember our freshman-year friend group and playing Splatoon with you and Imani. LOVE YOUUU!!

Auburn Wilson: Jasmine, I'm gonna miss you so much next year. I'm gonna miss gawking at Harambee music with you and hearing about your extensive X-Men knowledge during Physics. I hope you have a great time in college and we will miss you so much! :)

Colette Gentile: Jasmine! I know we only got to know each other this year, but I am SO glad to have found someone else whose comfort movie is Bohemian Rhapsody, and so glad to see a friendly face in the mornings when we are always the first two people in the language hallway. Here’s to many more rewatches of Roger Taylor busting out the drums and the nearly-identical lookalike of Brian May. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Emily Foerster: Hi Jasmine! I’m so glad I got the chance to meet you this year and be your freshman sister!! I loved having lunch with you at the beginning of the year and seeing you in the hallway! You’re so nice and funny, and I hope you have a great time at The Worcester Polytechnic Institute!

Isabella Deng: Jazzzyyyy!!!!!! Im so happy that staring you down during STIX and talking abt jojo siwas bizarre adventures allowed me to get to know you :) You are always so nice and friendly, and thanks for always just waving and saying hi in the halls—it always makes my day! It was always fun hearing about your KPS lifer experience, and you also always bring a positive energy into everyhting you do and I hope u bring that to WPI as well. Your lifer legacy has been legendary, and hope to see you at STAR next year!

Nia Gitau: Hi Jasmine, I’m so glad we became friends! Thanks for introducing me to some great TV shows and music. I already know I’m going to miss hanging out with you in the language hallway. Have a great time at WPI!

Megan Altier

Riley: Hi Megan, thank you so much for welcoming me to a new environment. It was so nice getting to know you this year, congrats on Wake Forest!

Sophia Gandhi: Megan - You probably don't remember this, but when I was in fifth grade and you were in sixth, you were my tour guide on the day I came to visit KPS. You were incredibly kind to me, and included me in classes and at lunch with all of your friends, which made me feel so welcome at KPS. Having been able to sit next to you in Bioethics last year felt like such a full circle moment, and I can't believe you are now graduating. Thank you for being an amazing partner in class last year, and for welcoming me to KPS all those years ago. I know you are going to go on to do amazing things at Wake Forest!

Jocelyn Ameo

Allison Ameo: Hi Jocey! I honestly can't believe (and don't want to acknowledge) that you're already going off to college. I know you've grown a lot since then, but it truly feels like we were in elementary and middle school playing with legos in your bedroom yesterday. I've been doing this little sister thing for 16 years so I don't know how I'm going to survive without you. I love your singing, your baking, your rambles about the new show/book/comic you love (*cough cough* batman *cough cough*), your jokes (which I ASSUME won't ever go away), your hard work, your crafts, your podcasts, your driving (and parking) skills, our tv shows, your debates, your indecisiveness, and your kindness (because sometimes I can be a little annoying, or a little upset, and you'll always be there no matter what). I love you so so SO much Jocelot, and I will miss every part of you while you're being awesome in Connecticut. Thank you for being the best sister I could as for. Love, AlliCat <3

Amirah: Hanging out with you in fencing has been so much fun and I will miss not seeing you in the halls. Good luck in college!

Claire Cherill: Jocelyn, I've had such a wonderful time getting to know you these past years. Your amazing sense of humor and terrific jokes never fail to make me laugh. I don't think I know anybody else (surprising, knowing the Brits in my life) who would walk into school with a personal kettle in the morning. I can't wait to see what you do in college and beyond, and I wish you the best of luck.

Colette Gentile: Jocelyn! I am so glad to have gotten to know you in and out of French this year. I think you have the most impressive impressions of anyone I’ve ever met. Grandpa, French fisherman, you name it - you never fail to make me laugh. I’ll miss seeing you in French and watching you in PerfCo productions next year. Best of luck in college and beyond!

Nia Gitau: Hey Jocelyn, even though you did once tell me that I’d be the first to starve in the winter, I’ve really appreciated your friendship over the years. We’ve always had the most interesting discussions, especially when you interpreted my dreams. I’m going to miss your jokes and insane baking skills, and I can’t wait to see what amazing things you do at Wesleyan!

Pranavi Raina: Dear Jocelyn, Thank you for welcoming me into Kent Place in the beginning of the year and reaching out. You helped me settle into this school and gave me confidence that I would fit in. We may have not seen each other too much or had much in common but you were so sweet to me and I really appreciate everything you have done for me. Love, Pranavi

Sophia Gandhi: JOCEYLN - I am going to miss you so so SO MUCH! I am so glad we were put in the same french class when you were a freshman, because it has been so fun getting to know you AND listening to your wild skits in french class. You are such a funny and kind human being, and I am going to miss you so much next year. No french class will ever be the same. Have the most incredible experience at Wesleyan, tu vas beaucoup me manquer (yes i had to use translate for that)

 

Isabella Deng: HEYYYY JJJJJOCELYNNNNNNNN!!!! I literally love u so much and i cant believe you're leaving KPS :((. You are genuinely so sweet, kindhearted, and you never fail to make me laugh :) From your sick-epic-tight baking skills to ....interesting ideas during WrinkleBag to your incredible Perf Co performances, you are super talented and never fail to brighten up the KPS community. I've always enjoyed hanging out and chatting with you this year and will miss seeing you around, but I hope you visit and have a great time at Wesleyan (it's your lasdt day, jocelyn) P.S Attached to the SIS Note I have attached a picture of a cookie--a perfectly normal cookie--because all cookies are so perfect and perfectly normal and do not resemble concerning politicians :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Sylvia Andrews

Ella Donohoe: Hi Sylvia, I know it has been a very short time that I have known you but it has been great! You have been so sweet to me over this year and I have loved doing all the activities with you. I wish you the best at college thanks for everything!

Lucy Bashforth

Caroline Hand: Lucy!! I am so happy for you but also so sad to see you go! I will miss you so much but know you will do great things at UCLA!! xoxo, Caroline ❤️❤️❤️

Hayden Mulligan: Thanks for being such a great senior sister! Soul cycle was so much fun! Good luck next year, I am so excited for you!

Aadya Bharadwaj

Amirah Ali: Thank you for being an awesome team captain. You taught us all the basics of fencing and without you i would have no idea what Justin goes on about. The whole foil squad will really miss you next year. I wish you all the best <3

Karanina Asuncion Hoang: Hey Aadya! 😋 I wanted to write this note to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible welcome you gave me when we first met. Seriously, I was like, "OMG! AADYA is so COOL, SMART, AND has the BEST FASHION SENSE EVER!" Your warmth, humor, and kindness instantly put me at ease and got me even more excited to start my freshman year at Kent Place. Thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions and guide me before my freshman year even started. Instead of feeling stressed about starting a new high school year, I was more excited at the prospect of starting a new adventure and meeting new people at Kent Place. Having someone as a smart, very cool, and relatable senior sister really helped me transition into high school, and it was because you made such a difference in my perception of Kent Place. I am truly so grateful to have you as my senior sister. As you prepare to graduate, I want you to know how much you inspire me! You are really an amazing role model because you are a living example of what I should aspire to be by the time I am a senior at KPS. Your warmth, humor, and unwavering support made my first year experience at Kent Place incredible! Although your journey at Kent Place may be coming to an end, I know your impact will be felt long after you leave, and know that your impact will be through how I aspire to take on as many opportunities at KPS because of watching and listening to your advice that you’ve given me through the years. I'll miss seeing you around and exchanging a "Heyy” in the halls but I have no doubt that you will continue to inspire and uplift those around you wherever life takes you. Rutgers better lock in because they now have the coolest, smartest, and funniest senior sister and Scarlet Knight on their hands! Here's to the next chapter of your life and all the adventures that await you! Please don’t forget about me when you are off to college… keep updating me on your adventures because I cannot wait to hear all about it! Congratulations, Aadya! 💕 Wishing you all the best, Kara 💗

Deysi: Thank you so much for being such a good foil captain! I had a lot of fun learning from you, and truly everything you've done! Have fun in college :)

Avery Bonner

Nia Gitau: Hi Rhyan, you’ve been such a great role model in SDLC, BCA, and Kaleidoscopes! Have fun at Northeastern!

Mira Lalani: Hey Rhyan! Thanks for actually being the best senior sister ever and always bringing me food. I'm so sad to see you leave but I am so excited to see everything that you accomplish! Good luck at Northeastern! I will miss you so so so much.

Colette Gentile: Rhyan! I am SO grateful to have been friends with you these past few years. Working with you at GLI is one of my favorite parts of the summer. From our debriefs at lunch, to trekking in (and complaining about) the woods, to binging “Anne With an E” on the bus (which I promise you I’ll finish one day!), and everything in between, you have been a huge inspiration and the person to keep me sane when some of the campers pull some lunchtime shenanigans (you know what I mean). I’m going to miss you so much next year, but I’m looking forward to at least one more fun summer working together. Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Sophia Bullione

Audrey Hong: Hi Sophia, Thank you so much for welcoming me into the KPS Upper School community! You were such an amazing senior sister, and I'm so happy that I got to know you! Good luck at John Hopkins! Audrey Hong

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: Alice, my favorite lady with a baby!!!! I’m so so grateful to have been in Chicago and Something Rotten with you, you're such an amazingly talented actor. You’re so sweet and have a great sense of humor, I’ve had so much fun in the musicals with you, all of us are seriously going to miss you next year. Goodluck at Wisconsin, and keep in touch!!! Love you <3

Ceci Hirawat: there is nobody else i'd rather spend insanely long bus rides and disappointing volcano hikes with; you are one of the funniest and most talented people and i know you're going to make us all so so proud at wisco :) just don't forget your roots! i loved cheerleading, cell-blocking, hiking with you and i'm going to miss you so incredibly much <33

Emmie Kimball: Hi Alice! Thank you so much for being such an amazing senior sister. You are so sweet are nice. Congrats on Wisconsin, you are going to do great things there!

Thank you so much for getting me Starbucks and playa bowls-they were very yummy! Wish you the best for the future, thank you so much for being so kind and thoughtful ❤️

Geo Thatch: I've loved getting to know you through theater and bianca jagger. You are gonna kill it in college and ill miss u in spanish!!

Jasmine Wolstenholme: Hi Alice!!! I absolutely loved getting to know you in Costa Rica, and am going to miss you so much next year! You’re so funny and amazing to be around and are going to crush Wisconsin next year!

Mia Ramos: Alice! I don't know what I am going to do without you. I am so glad that we got to spend time with each other during both the winter and fall shows. You are so incredibly talented and I am so glad I got to share a stage with you. I will forever miss all of our post rehearsal hang outs and trying to cram lines at Boxwood. Thank you for bringing everyone starbucks before rehearsal and cough drops when we are sick during tech. I am going to miss you so much next year and I expect to see you front row center. I love you endlessly, don't miss me too much<3

Colette Gentile: Alice Carr! You will always be Annie Jump Cannon in my eyes. I actually cannot believe you are graduating soon! I am beyond lucky to have gotten to know you in theater and dance tech the past few years. You are unbelievably talented on and off stage. It has been really awesome to have you by my side since joining as a freshman and auditioning for “Silent Sky” together, and working on so many more shows and dance projects. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and for making me laugh. I am going to miss you so much next year, and dance tech is going to feel more empty without you, but I know you’re going to do great things. Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Kathryn Cepeda

Jane Cepeda: Dear Kathryn, I am so excited to see you do big things at Georgia!! I am so proud of you and I can't wait to visit! Thank you for everything and I am forever your biggest fan! Love, Jane

Meredith: Kathryn!!! Thank you so much for welcoming me into the school this fall. Thanks to you my transition to a new and scary environment was that much easier! I hope you have an amazing collage experience and live it up for the next 4! Thank you again for being amazing!

Nina Choi

Lorelei Gustafson-Johnson: NINA!! Where to start! I am so lucky to have gotten to know you this year!! You are such an amazing arts president and you always make committee meetings so fun! I am always looking forward to the next meeting 😊 Also, I'm so glad we had Portfolio together! I swear our conversations in that class are always so interesting... I think that Weathersby might be at least a little sick and tired of us by now haha. I will miss you so much in AP next year :( I wish that KPS could fail you in PE (kidding!!) so you could stay around for another year. But even tho I'm gonna miss you a lot -- I just know you will thrive at UVA!! Please come back to visit us often!! COME BACK TO SEE THE SHOWS NEXT YEAR TOO!!!! 💗 I'm gonna miss you SOO much!

 

Jordan Hall: Nina, you are such an amazing field hockey player and such a nice person in general! I’m so glad we met through Johnny and field hockey!! You’re going to do amazing things in college!! Good luck!

Love, Jordan

Nora Clow

Caroline Gilbert: Hi Nora! Thank you for all the help you gave me this year. I enjoyed meeting you, and I hope you have a great time in college!

Lauren Herman: I had so much fun in your senior project and I'll miss you so much!!

Claire Collins

Samantha Heck: Hey Claire! Thank you so much for being the best senior sister ever! KP dems is so much fun with you! You made my transition into Kent Place so easy and fun. Thank you for being my senior sister!! Have the best time at college!!

Colette Gentile: Claire! Surviving calc was so much better (and so much more fun) with you by my side! I’m really glad to have gotten to know you, because you always know how to lighten the mood and keep me grounded (and you're the first person I've met whose favorite song is "Christmas Wrapping"). Not to mention, rocking the mock was super fun with you as well, especially belting out “Unwritten” on our bus rides to and from competitions. I am going to miss you SO much next year! Best of luck in college and (and Riverdance this summer) beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Logan Corrales

Emily Foerster: Hi Logan!! I’m so so so incredibly grateful that I got the chance to meet you this year and become friends with you. You are one of the most caring people I’ve ever met, and you’re so incredibly talented. Doing Something Rotten and She Kills Monsters with you were two incredible experiences that I’m so glad I got to have with you. I love doing Pep Squad and Improv Club with you, and I’m going to miss hanging out with you in chorale so much. You’re one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met, and I’m going to miss you so much next year!! Good luck at Case Western, and make sure to talk about me in your oscar’s speech. 💕💕💕

Colette Gentile: Logan! Or should I say Mama Morton? Or Roxie? Nancy Nostradamus? Lilith? I still remember when we did Poetry Out Loud together back when I was a freshman (can you believe it was that long ago??) and you were always so kind and funny, even when it felt like we were speaking jargon. Not to mention, you are INSANELY talented and I always love seeing your performances in the shows and cabaret and everything in between. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have had you as a friend since freshman year. I am going to miss you so much next year, especially seeing you first thing in the morning and you randomly bursting out into theater songs, but you’re going to do great things. Please come back and visit (dance tech, at least!) Best of luck in college and beyond! :) (Check for picture in the Photo Gallery)

Allison Ameo: LOGAN!! Remember that time when I met you and ran away? Yeah, good times. Well, I think I've warmed up to you a *little* bit. And by a little, I mean you have become like another sister to me. Your amazing hugs, visits during my free, awesome earrings, humor & contagious laugh, phone games, running (despite the asthma) in life or death situations (like laser tag or hide n seek) - there are so many reasons why I love having you as a friend and will miss you so incredibly much next year! Thank you for being so amazing just as you are; school, orchestra & life in general will be forever changed without you. <3
 

Anabella Mendieta-Frost: LOGANNN!!!!! It's my fav ever!!! I'm so so so so happy & grateful I got to know you and become friends these past years, especially in Chicago and Something Rotten. You're SUCH an incredibly talented singer and actor, I was genuinely in awe each time you sang in the musicals. You always know just how to cheer me up and I'm so so grateful for your support & help. Your commitment to each and every single one of your roles is something I truly admire and I really look up to you. I know you can't stay for longer, but I don't know how I'm going to do next years musical without you. I'm going to miss you so so so much, especially our hallway conversations, captioned .5s, bonding over our shared heritage, long vlogging videos, and everything else. You're such an amazing person, and even though I wish didn't have to leave, I know you're going to go off to achieve incredible things at Case Western. Keep in touch!!!!! Love you lots <3333
 

Camila Trainor: Logan, congratulations on Case Western and good luck on your further endeavors! I’m sure you’ll do great studying history and continuing your acting career!
 

Geo Thatch: Gonna miss punching u in the halls </3. Seriously, you're a really great friend and im gonna miss you loads in college next year. Just you wait im gonna pull up.
 

Sam Calanog: Hiii Logan!! You're so so funny and I love chorale and Dance Tech with you(PTSD sea fever). You're so good at acting and singing and improvising lyrics to hamilton songs<3. Have fun in Casewesternnn!!
 

Sophia Gandhi: Logan - I can't believe you are graduating. I remember it like yesterday when you were in 7th and I was in 6th and we were put in the same triplet group at Woodloch. You were so kind to me and you've always been both absolutely hilarious and incredibly caring. I know you are going to do amazing things after you graduate, but I'm going to miss you a lot.
 

Vivienne Vengroff: Logan, you are so amazing! You are so bright (your aura and your brains) and your glow always shines on those around you! Keep being stunning!

Charlotte Cote

Catie Gorke: Congratulations on graduating! You were a great senior sister and I hope you have so much fun in college! Good luck next year!

Phoebe Kanellakos: Congratulations Charlotte! I will miss you next year.

 

Elle Dambrot

Brooke Dambrot: Elle, I'm gonna miss you so much next year but Colgate is so lucky to have you! You're truly an amazing person and the best sister ever. I'm so proud of you and I love you so much!!!

Colette Gentile: Elle! I cannot believe how long it feels like I’ve known you. I still remember that Green Key Zoom call from over three years ago now when I was the only attendee who showed up and it was practically the two of us talking the entire hour, despite there being seniors who wanted to get a word in. I have missed your crazy stories in math and getting through French with you, and I’ll definitely miss you next year, but I’m glad we get to catch up in the halls because you are one of the most effortlessly funny people I know. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

Vivienne Vengroff: Dear Elle, You are so sweet and caring. Your kind and gentle smiles and "hello"s are always a treat! Not to mention you are an amazing dancer. Keep doing you! Love, Vivienne V.

Ava Pardilla: Dear Elle, Thank you for reaching out to me in the beginning of the year, your note made me so excited and really helped my nerves surrounding joining KPS. I seriously appreciate what you have done for me this year, I couldn't have wished for a better senior sister. I can't wait to see what great things you do next year and hope that you the best time. I'll miss seeing you around school, but I know that you will have so much fun in college. I'm not sure how you're feeling about leaving, but I just wanted to assure you, my older sister is a freshman in college and she was so nervous to go, but she met her best friend and is having such an amazing time (so hopefully that helps you a little). Have such an amazing time you will be missed! Love, Ava

Sophia Esposito

Nia McDaniel: Hi Sophia, so glad I got to know you this year. You are such an amazing dancer and you choreographed a fantastic senior project. Have a great time in college!

 

Maya Franco

Colette Gentile: Maya! I cannot believe it’s been almost three full years in Dance Tech with you. I will never forget our iconic choreography from so long ago and how we almost performed to a very particular song just a few weeks ago (you know what I mean). Thank you for always being a friendly face in class! Pilates will not be the same without you. Best of luck in college and beyond! :)

 

Vivienne Schuppe: Hi Maya! Thank you for being such a sweet senior sister this year! Finding out we had so much in common the first week of school made me a million times more comfortable. Thank you for bringing me Starbucks and Bagel Chateau (and thank you for trying again after the first Starbucks debacle) and for saying hi in the halls. I hope to see you at Able Baker more after school gets out and to see you around Maplewood this summer. Good luck next year!! Love, Viv!

Marissa Garnica

Remy Cinquino: Thanks for being the best senior sister and teaching me all about KPS! Good luck in collage and i’ll miss you!!

 

Gabby Gaston

Sophia Gandhi: Gabby - It has been such a great experience getting to play tennis with you for the past couple years. You are super sweet and talented both on and off the court, and I know the team is going to feel different next year without you. Thank you for being such a great teammate, and have the best time at William and Mary!

Tessa Chow: Thank you for being such a kind and helpful senior sister to me this year! Have fun at William & Mary!
