I know you guys are gonna go on to do amazing things and I’m so sad that I’m not leaving school with y’all. Nana yaa you’re my favorite old soul to be around. You give great advice and you have a warm personality. (Forever aunties baby 😜) Sydney you’re like my older sister. You’ve helped me through so many things and I can’t thank you enough. Ariel!! Your also like my sister! You’re actually so funny and your smile lights up a room. Your laugh is contagious and your so great to be around. I want to thank all of you for letting me join your group when I had no one at the beginning of the school year. Even when you guys leave, I will still work hard to make you guys proud! I will miss our gossip session and our talks about my latest oppositions. I will love you guys forever!

Physics Class Block E

Ms. July: Dear physicists,
It has been a great pleasure teaching you Physics this year. It was not necessarily easy, but definitely fun experience for me and I truly hope for you too. Thank you for your engagement, eagerness to learn, support, and understanding. Teaching you, reminded me how much I loved Physics when I was a high school student and made me realize how much I love to teach it now.
Thank you all for being amazing, funny, hardworking, and companionate human beings. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and certainly know that you will succeed at anything you set your mind to.
Bon Voyage!!!

Science Olympiad Presidents (Sneha and Roshni)

Diana Reig: Roshni and Sneha. I can’t believe the time has come to see off our beloved Science Olympiad founders and presidents. Thank you for creating a wonderful, positive environment during every team meeting and for all your words of encouragement leading up to our competitions. You helped make Science Olympiad one of my favorite activities to participate in and I know that we will truly miss you next year. Natalie, Sajni and I will do our best to continue your Science Olympiad legacy and we hope you’ll come back and visit. We all really look up to you and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for both of you. Congrats on your graduation and good luck at Penn and MIT!!

Science Olympiad Seniors (Sneha, Roshni, and Sophia)

Dvita Bhattacharya: Congratulations on graduating!! I am going to miss all 3 of you so much next year - Science Olympiad won't be the same without you guys there. Since freshman year, Science Olympiad has been one of my favorite extracurricular activities. Between our *highly* productive after school sessions and chaotic competition days, I've made some of my best friends through this club. Thank you so much for forming and being a part of it, as well as being there for all of us as our mentors and team captains. You've been there for us with emotional support, course recommendations, your mom jokes and cookie cake. You're like my school parents (except for Roshni, you're my slightly unhinged uncle), and I'm going to miss you so much next year. Good luck at college and make sure to text us :)
PS: Sophia you still have to teach me Patristocrat ciphers and the sacred secrets of Codebusting

I wish you both the best in college!!!
