See photo of Ms Chaffee-Cohen and me on Back to School Night your 9th grade year and have feelings. What kind of feelings? I dunno.

Lit Loose Club Leaders
Nia Gitau: I really enjoyed my time in Lit Loose! Thank you for making this club so much fun and cultivating such interesting discussions in every meeting. You both really made Lit Loose special, and the club will miss having such great leaders. Good luck next year!!
Seema Parmar: I wanted to start this note with a pun about partial derivatives or triple integrals but after 5 minutes of contemplation I think I’ll leave the jokes to you all. We have been through many leaderless discussions, wonderful (or wasteful, depending on the perspective) Wednesdays, a progression of an ever increasing number of variables, and many more math jokes. I’ll just say this simply - you all are my role models in both math and in other various respects. I knew many of you last year in math. We were in this hybrid environment, I was afraid all of these intimidating juniors would dislike me, and we had an impending AP exam. Even though you all undoubtedly had more work than me, you helped me out and added humor to a stressful April and May. Throughout junior year, it was actually a recollection of the example you had unknowingly set that year that helped me get through more work heavy weeks. Some of you I had in 9th grade or just this year. Either way, you all influenced me (and my work ethic) in class this year. There were many days I had been on the verge of zoning out as another example full of unfamiliar letters was written on the board. But all of you would attack each problem with curiosity and vigor. It is this dedication and determination that is so awe-inspiring. But that isn’t all! You all communicate so clearly with both each other and the teacher, and are able to articulate both your ideas and frustrations so fully - you set an example that I hope to someday carry on. I have no doubt that you will all go on to do amazing things, math related and not. We joke around in class, but it is difficult for me to express just how much I admire each of you. I know I will never have another math class like this again. Finally, I just wanted to say thank you. The energy you brought to the classroom was (is?) impeccable. You all are not just math leaders, but future-engineers, current dancers, student-government leaders, (ethicists?), frog enthusiasts, physics scholars, my-math-role-models-since-third-grade-in-math-league, my neighbors (haha), musicians, and my role models in other classes as well (such as Spanish or Chemistry…). It is these unique talents that bring unique perspectives to our math classroom and I truly believe helped learning multi so much easier but also helped me learn so much about all of your talents that will help me in the future. So in easier terms, our class has curl but our divergence is zero (I think). Good luck next year!
Nia Williams and CC Wolf
Ms. Cohen: You're a great pair of friends and Dora the Explorer Blanket lovers. Congratulations :D
