Tara Balan

Georgia Post-Lipnick: Dear Tara, I still remember the first time you slid into my dms and flexed all the ppl you had dmed before. From njys to bioethics you have helped me get through the days where all I wanted to do was go back to bed. You always know just what to say. I'll miss you and the squad so much <333

Seema Parmar: We're soaring, flying, cuz your the best senior sister I've ever had! Good luck next year!

Sarah Brandstaedter: TARAAA, who would have thought Scarlet would bring us to this point?? I can’t imagine high school without you. Thank you for always being there for me no matter what. Hopefully, we can go on more walks/runs soon. Have the best time at college! Can’t wait to visit you!!

Georgia Rabin: TARA!!!!! OMG!!!!! Thank you so much for being the most amazing friend this year, and for bringing HSMTM and Victorious into my life! I am so glad we became friends this year. You always make me feel at home, and I love our texts about Miley, Ricky, Shawn and Camilla, Olivia Rodrigo, and about the awkward moments we’ve had LOL!!! I am so lucky to be your friend. Thank you for bringing me back into my Taylor Swift phase, for being a bioethics queeeeeeeeen, and for being one of the funniest, smartest, kindest people I know!! I know that we wont stop texting about the latest Disney shows we are watching, but I am gonna miss you SO MUCH!!!! Anyway, here is a picture of Nini and Ricky, just for you:

Ruby Pollack: Tara where do I start. You have been my longest KPS friend, and I feel like I have gone through so much with you. From Scarlet to lady drags, your friendship has made this journey worth it. I'm going to miss your jokes, and our Kate Z rants. But most importantly, I going to miss a person I could always count on to lift my spirits. You are going to do great things at BC, and I hope to see you in Tokyo 2021. I'm going to miss you so much, but please reach out when you're in town.

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Tara, I know we were never that close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. It was awesome being in Bioethics together this year and I really appreciate it when you were willing to switch rooms with me in Georgetown. I admire how friendly you are and open to talking to all different types of people. I liked having someone to talk about Taylor Swift about and I love your passion for pop culture... and swimming. I will miss you a lot next year and I know you will do great things in college and beyond. -Eliza

Eirian ​Huang: tara, you are my queen and i will miss you a lot next year~~

Zarah Bari

Sofia Keri: Good luck next year!

Elizabeth Mastrangelo: Congratulations Zarah!! I have looked up to ever since you were a freshman and I am so proud of you! I was so sad when we weren't in the same math class this year and I will be even more sad when you aren't at Kent Place anymore :( Thank you so much for all of the advice and laughs. Love you and miss you <3 - Izzy

Aya ​Mtume: ZARAH! i’m gonna miss all of the crazy antics that you pull during school or hearing your screaming from all the way across the building. i love that you always speak your mind and stand up for thosee who might not have a voice and i’m really proud to be able to say that i worked with you with DivCO this year which was really amazing. i know you’re gonna kill it at colgate next year and i’m amazed that you made it through senior year without getting suspended lmao. NEVER CHANGE. ily!

Grace Martin: Hey hey. I cannot believe you're graduating. It seems like not that long ago that you scared me on revisit day. I'm so glad we became friends. Thank you for all the rides and fun times. I'm gonna miss you so much next year. <3

Clare Buckley

Sophia Famular: Dear Clare, You were always super nice and funny during soccer. I remember when you called John "sir" and all the other fun times in practice. I hope you have a wonderful year next year!

Alex Sinins: Hey Clare! I’m gonna miss you so much thanks for all you brought to soccer, JSA and the school! You are the sweetest and most kind human ever! I love you so much 💞💞

Veronica Melendi: Thank you so much for showing me around KPS the first few days. You are a great senior sister and I wish you the best of luck next year! I'm going to miss you! :-)

Aya Mtume: ¡hola! i would write this entire message in spanish but i think i can save you the trouble of trying to translate. i still remember freshman year spanish class with you and maggie in the corner as you’re getting yelled at by dr. andrade. good times. you’re such an incredibly sweet person and such a great president of SNHS even though we didn’t get to do our bake sale :( but despite that minor set back i know you’re going to CRUSH IT at georgetown!!! ILY! ¡espero que te diviertas el año primero! (let’s hope i said that right)

Eliza Lox: Hey Clare, I know we were never really close but I want you to know that I appreciate you. I loved having spanish with you for two years and being on JV softball together. You are always to generous and kind to everyone you meet which is something I really admire. I will miss you and I know you will do great things in college and beyond. -Eliza

Kelsey Burrows 

Sofie Cozine: Hi, Kelsey! I hope you're doing okay in quarantine. I know it sucks, especially for you and the other seniors, that we aren't finishing the year. Everyone is going to miss you guys so much! You're a great senior class and you are a great senior sister. Even though I'll miss you, I know you're gonna do great things in college. Have the best time at Cornell, I know you're gonna love it! You have such a bright future and I can't wait to see what you accomplish when you graduate. You're gonna kill it in college, good luck!

Aya Mtume: BIG RED!! i’m sooo excited for you and i have been since the beginning of this year! i can’t believe that a couple months ago i was screaming GO BIG RED at the top of my lungs to scare girls on the other volleyball teams. you’re an AMAZING volleyball and softball player and i can’t wait for you to carry on your success in college. the volleyball memories will never go away and i have to admit i’m gonna miss tasing you in the hallways and watching you fall off of chairs or you tasing me. HAVE FUN AT CORNELL THEY AINT READY!! ILY!

Haley Murray: The thing I will miss most about you is probably, your hugs. I’m so happy that we got to have your senior season for volleyball – and cannot wait to see you play softball in college! Thank you for being my uber when my parent did not love me. Love you so much and cannot wait to see you thrive at Cornell. <3 Haley

Maddie Canfield

Grace Martin: I'm gonna miss you so much next year. I had so much fun with you in trebs last year (big rip). Thanks for always looking out for me ! I can wait to see al the great things you do next year! <3 Grace

Zoriana Horodysky: Maddie- You'll do really great things at Syracuse and I'll miss you! You're an amazing senior sister and you will be just as amazing at college!! Xoxo, your freshman sister, Zoriana

Aya Mtume: hello madeleine. i’m not even sure if i spelled your first name correctly but if i didn’t i gave it a little spice ya know, a little added flavor. anyways you’re LEAVING ME AGAINST MY WILL? how dare you. but seriously i’m gonna miss you next year. i’ll especially miss our dance parties in the bathroom, violating each others’ personal space, almost getting t-boned in your car, that one time that we were on the same club volleyball team and you showed up like twice (long live conquest), sitting on you in the senior lounge, making fun of your dancing, and many more things that i can’t think of at the moment but trust me they’re up there somewhere. i’m so so so proud of you for getting into syracuse like you’re doing big things. don’t be surprised when i randomly show up and force you to take care of me for a weekend. school just isn’t gonna be the same without seeing you in the hallways and immediately going up to you just to get in your face and stare you down for no reason. it was truly the highlight of my day sometimes. but this is getting long now so i just want you to know that i will really really miss you next year and i know you’re gonna do great things next year. love you!

Subha Chopra 

Kay Lyon: Thank you so much for being a great role model on the robotics team. I really appreciate all of guidance, and I learned a lot from you. Good luck next year!

Charlotte Betz: You have been an awesome senior sister, and I love being on the robotics team with you! I am going to miss you sooo much!!

Ruby Pollack: Hey Subha, I'm so glad that we have become such good friends from robotics these past two years. Honestly I do not know what I would have done without you. I know you are going to do awesome things in Georgia Tech, but I'm going to miss you so much :(. Vist robotics when you come back!!!

Eliza Lox: Hey Subha, I know we were never really that close but I want you to know that I appreciate you. I liked having graphic design with you last year cause even though I didn't know you you were willing to talk to me. You also always seemed very confident in knowing the things that you liked which I always admired. I will miss you. -Eliza

Quincy Clew

Olivia Kwon: G'day My Lady, I am going to miss you so so so much. Thank you for just always being there for me and making me smile 24/7. Thank you for bringing me french fries. Thank you for just joking around with me in chamber or during rehearsal or literally anywhere. I'm gonna miss your hugs next year. They are really good hugs. You will forever be a pimp in my heart. <3

Nyatché Martha: You're amazing. You were so good in 'O Holy Night' at Star. I'm gonna miss you!

Elizabeth Miller: hey girl. I just wanted to say that I will miss you so much next year and I know you will kill em at college. You are such a talented singer and such as an amazing person in general! I will miss all our conversations and facetime calls and chamber will not be the same without you next to me :(

Kayla Kim: Thank you for always being so kind and sweet to everyone! I'll miss you in chamber singers and physics. Good luck at Skidmore!!

Eliza Lox: Hey Quincy, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. I remember this one time freshman year when I was walking alone in the hall on the way to an assembly or something and you just started talking to me and asking about how freshmen year was going and it was really nice. I was pretty insecure so it meant a lot to me. I mean I knew you a little bit from field hockey but you didn't play most of the season and I didn't really talk to anyone so I was surprised that you even said hi. Anyway, I thought that was really nice and I admire how you are so willing to listen to other people like when I was talking about god knows what during PE that one time. Listening is definitely something I need to keep working on but you have helped me see why it is so important. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. -Eliza

Leah Cohn: I can't believe my mom is leaving me to go to college next year. And I hope you know by mom I mean you. I really don't know what I would have done these past two years without you always being there for me when I needed to talk or needed advice. I have had so much fun with you at Delbarton One Acts, however, I don't think I will survive them without you next year so get ready for many calls. I am going to miss you so much next year and we need to visit each other. I loved this year when we got to talk in the halls, during Genius time, and when I learned from you on how to be the best wing woman. You truly deserve an award. I also loved it when we listened to music in your little bee of a car and talked in the diner parking lot. That was so so fun. I can't wait to see what you will accomplish next year in college and hear about all of the crazy memories you will make!

Eliza Cohen

Samara Green: I hope you have the best time at Bucknell and you were an amazing senior sister! xoxo- samara

Eliza Lox: Hey Eliza, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. Thanks for always being entertaining and annoying Dave during tennis. I was also impressed by your driving that one time we went to CPK, that was pretty fun. I like having someone with the same name as me cause I don't know that many Elizas. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. - The other Eliza

Eileen Cohn

Madeline Estey: Eileen! I'm going to miss you next year! Thanks for all of the track memories and for being just the sweetest person ever :) "Runn-ningg" forever. Good luck next year!

Eliza Lox: Hey Eileen I really liked doing POL with you. Me, you, and Maya were a good squad my firs your doing it. I had so much fun when we went to support Maya this year and you are just a really genuine and kind person. You showed me what it means to love poetry and how to not be afraid and recite it. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things in college and beyond. -Eliza

Leah Cohn: Although you are a senior Eileen, in my eyes you are still in the 5th grade. Maybe that's because you still act like your ten years old or because I'm just so, so, so much more mature than you. I guess I don't think of you being a senior because I knew we would always be in the same school, living in the same house, and I would always have you by my side 24/7. I knew that if you were a senior, you would soon be heading out of the house and not sharing a wall with me that I can knock on whenever I need help with Latin homework. I've got to say that its been hard to come to terms with you leaving, but what makes it all OK is where you are heading. An amazing college that you have worked so incredibly hard for and so many new adventures that you have to tell me all about. I've been so fortunate to have you as my best friend for sixteen years and spend every minute with you. You have made me so happy with your hugs, even though they do suffocate me at times, the way you make me laugh until I can't breathe, the recipes we've created together that let us say need some improvement, the bike rides, the stories you've read and made with me, the countless hours you've sat by my side to help me with homework that I deemed impossible, the Taylor Swift songs we memorized as kids and sang together in front of the mirror, the back yard games we created, and the mass quantity of cookie dough we've made every time we've been home alone. I could go on and on about the memories that we've made together but what's really important is that you know that I love you so much, and no matter how far away we are from each other, you will always be my best friend. You better call me all the time, still ask me if your outfit matches, and help me with my homework, because we all know I'm not going to get through junior year without you. And I will be there for you too, whenever you need me, and whatever you need me for. Because we've been there for each other since day one and no distance will ever change that.

Margo Costigan

Madeline Estey: Margo, thank you for being an awesome co-leader and friend! I've had so much fun doing robotics with you and it's not going to be the same next year :( Good luck at Tufts!

Vivi Ng: Thank you for being such a great senior sister! I will miss you next year and I know you will do great! Good luck and thanks for making senior sister activities super fun! You're the best!

Kay Lyon: Thank you so much for being a great leader and role model on the robotics team. You are so welcoming and positive. Because of you, this past season was so much fun. I'm going to miss you next year!

Eliza Lox: Hey Margo, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. You are always so sweet to everyone around you and are a really good listener which I admire I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. -Eliza

Ruby Pollack: Hey Margo, I can't belive your graduating :(. Thank you for being the best robotics leader I could have ever wished. When I first walked in to fall 2019 robotics meeting, I was so terrified and stressed thinking that I would not fit in. You were so nice, warm, and accepting and your presence really made my robotics experience. You are going to KILL IT at Tufts, but I'm going to miss you much. Please come back and vist!!!

Liz Cotter

Iman Handy: Hi, energizer bunny twin! I can't believe I have to say goodbye to you but I'm so happy that I was able to play and celebrate on the volleyball court with you. From meeting at McCool's to that time Miller blocked Adelina from SPF, laughing with you has been a major highlight of volleyball at KP for me. You set such an amazing example both years as captain and I HOPE YOU GET THE CHANCE TO COME TO A KPVVB GAME WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS. LOVE YOU LONG TIME!

Alex Sinins: Hey Liz! I’m gonna miss you so much next year! Student affairs won’t be the same without you and the positivity that you always brought will be greatly missed! Love you!

Sophia Miller: I hope you have a really fun time in Nashville. I went one time when my brother was visiting Vanderbilt and I loved the city. I remember this one place called Hatti B's Hot Chicken which had really good food. I just hope you have a really fun time and enjoy your college experience

 

Perfco Juniors (Nina, Nyatche, Sabrina, Quinn and Molly): We love you and are going to miss you so much. Thank you for always supporting us and encouraging us and for being such an amazing role model. We are going to miss your humor and kindness more than anything. Thank you for making Perfco so wonderful. <3

Scarlett Gibby: Liz! Thank you for all of your enthusiasm this year! You made every student affairs event so much fun! I'm going to miss you so much next year!!

Mrs. Ray: Liz, I will miss hearing your voice coming down the hall and your smiles at camp. Please keep in touch! I wish you the best next year and in the future! Good Luck - you are an amazing girl!!! Mrs. Ray (Cam & Carson)

Arden Meyer: Hi Liz! I'm sorry that we aren't going back to school and that I can't see you anymore in person! :(( I'm missing lax season right now! Good luck at Vanderbilt and I hope that I see you over the summer!

Claire Bryant: Thank you such much for being an amazing student affairs president. You obviously put a lot of work into the committee and it payed off. You will be a hard act to follow. I will also miss the energy you bring to the volleyball games. Congratulations on finishing high school and good luck next year!

Haley Murray: To the best noodle I know. Every time I hear your name all I can think about is the fit that you wore on your 1st day at KPS. I am so grateful to have played volleyball with you and have gotten to know you over the years. I cannot wait to see all that you do at Vandy, love you so much. Thanks for introducing me to Andrew! <3 Haley.

Aya Mtume: lizabee. where do i even begin. from the moment that you decided i was cute enough to spend time with me when i was in seventh grade, to now, as i’m writing this sis note, you have been one of the most incredible friends to me for these past 5 years. that’s REALLY insane to me. there’s never a dull moment when we’re together and i cherish every single memory that we have made. to name a few: agreeing that wall-e is a disgraceful movie to the disney franchise, exchanging equally bad stories in the beginning of the year, conquest and our favorite coach pj, meeting your grandparents, going to basketball games and being the loudest ones in the gym, and of course, you LOVING my private story dedicated to you, burp time. i actually burped while writing that so just think about that. the fact that i can never recall a moment where i was genuinely mad it you is very telling of our AMAZING friendship that we have made. you make me laugh until my stomach hurts and i will never EVER get tired of watching you try to wink because i know you can’t do it. i just want you to know that i felt like the coolest 7th grader when you and lane would come up to me just to say hi or just to hug me. it made my day. and to this day, you have always been my perfect boyfriend height so when i find one you’ll be the only one that can compete with him. i hope that you one day find your over-six-foot lover and that you

Jill DiTomasso

Elizabeth Mastrangelo: Congrats Jill! I am so proud that you are graduating, but I am sad that you are leaving me :( Love you <3

Chloe Miccolis: Hi Jill I hope your quarantine is going well. Im so sad we couldn't play lacrosse together this year. It would have been so fun. Miss you!!

Christiana Nwachuku: hey jill! i am going to miss you so much next year. i had so much fun practicing with you and i wouldn't trade it for anything. you are such a kind-hearted person and i wish you the best of luck in college queen. i know you are going to kill the haverford lax scene!

Phoebe Eccles

Eliza Lox: Hey Phoebe, I know we were not really close but I liked having spanish with you and it was cool to have a friend in the grade above me. You are a really funny and genuinely nice person. I will miss you a lot next year and I know you will go on to do good things at Amherst and beyond. -Eliza

Georgia Post-Lipnick: Phoebe! I actually don't know what I will do without you next year. Thank you for being that person I can hug at the lunch line or in orchestra. You've given me such good advice and have helped me get through freshman and sophomore year. Thank you for just being there ALWAYS. I LOVE YOU TO AMHERST AND BACK!

Georgia ​Rabin: PHOEBE!!!!! I have loved getting to know you this year and just being crazy with you and Tara and hanging out in the math lab. Thanks for saying yes that one time I asked you for a ride LOL... too bad ur car stopped working :( ANYWAY, I’M GONNA MISS OUR CONVOS AND SEEING YOU IN THE HALLS NEXT YEAR ILYSM and I can’t wait to see you when you come back for visits!!!! I miss you so much already  :(((

Lilly ​Fanelle: Dear Phoebe, Thank you for being an amazing senior sister. You have been so helpful and so kind to me. Thank you for helping me feel welcome at Kent Place. I have had such a good time hanging out with you in Orchestra and Meraki this year (cello power!). You are going to do a great job in college next year! ~ Lilly F.

Janet ​Luo: Words can't describe how much I will miss you ~ how much I do miss you. You're one of the first people I met coming into high school and from that point on, you have given me confidence for these next few rough years and have motivated me to be my best, weird self. You are the kindest, funniest, swiftiest goofball and I'm so proud to call you my friend. I love you so incredibly much! Never change! Amherst is so lucky to have you:)))))

Noe ​Nalavala: Congratulations!! I know it's sad that were in quarantine right now but I'm so proud of you. You're going to do amazing at Amherst next year. I enjoyed having a great cross country and winter track season with you!!

Emily Eichenholtz

Paulina Kachalova: Hi Emily!! I'm not sure if you remember, but I certainly do. When I was an 8th grader at LCJSMS (Summit represent!!) and you were a freshmen at KP, you were the one who toured me! You had math class in the annex with Dr. Pantozzi, and took me to Science Club. Fast forward three years, and we are in the same Physics lab group!! It is such a time, and I wouldn't have asked for another lab group. Besides getting our physics done (physics grind), at least for me personally, I know I have a lot of fun in that lab group. Have fun at the awesome program you will be attending, and continue being the genius that you are!!

Karla Perdomo: I’m gonna miss you like crazy!! Thanks for being the best big sis and train buddy I could ever ask for! I couldn’t imagine train rides without you!! You’re gonna do big things!! Love you 😘

Annika Bhatia: Hi Emily! Thanks for being a great senior sister this year and I hope you have a great time in college! I’m really sorry your senior year got cut short, but I hope you had the best time in quarantine!

Nyatché Martha: You are a phenomenal person. Your style amazes me. Our conversations on the train will be sorely missed. You will also be sorely missed. I know that you're going to go out there and do great things. Love you!

Stacey Espiritu

Grace Martin: Hey homie! You made it! I can't even begin to express how thankful I am to have you in my life. Thank you for being the best friend I could ever ask for, always sticking by my side, and never failing to hype me up. I don't know how I would've survived these two years without you, and I don't know what I'm gonna do without taking laps around the school during conference or having aux on rides to the train station. I'm gonna miss doing life with you but I can't wait to see all great things you accomplish next year. I love you always homie and don't forget to come visit! <3 Gracie

Zoe Campbell: I am going to miss you more than you could imagine and I can not believe I have to play without you next year. Thank you for always having my back in everything and for the endless laughs. I am so proud of you and I know you're going to do great things at Cornell. Love you more than Trace loves you (ripb-ball).

Caitlin Williams: I'm going to miss you so much next year. My freshman year would have never been the same without you. You were one of the people that really welcomed me to the team and made me feel like a part of it. Good luck next year and I hope you come back to visit a lot.

Olivia Kwon: Stacey, Thank you so much for everything you have done for me in Senate this year. I have learned so so much from you this year and am just extremely thankful for your guidance and example. Congrats on Cornell - you are going to kill it!! Olivia

Riley ​Wagner: I am going to miss sitting next to you in chamber :(( Thanks for always making chamber more interesting than it is!!

Haley ​Murray: I remember our days in middle school when you used to wear your goggle glasses which have now turned into Bundy glasses. Your energy is unmatchable and I cannot see where this energy takes you. I am so proud of all you have done and overcome. I will miss our group hangouts and can’t wait to see all that you do in college and life. Good luck at Cornell. Love you so much. <3 Haley

Anushka ​Vaishnav: Congrats! I know you will do so well in college! I will miss you so much! Have fun!

Aya ​Mtume: stacey. sticcy. stacey asparagus. spooky. chicken. whatever other nicknames i hate for you. this is gonna be hard to write because i don’t want you to leave me. but my goal of the sis note is not to make you cry (even though you probably will anyway). instead i wanna name a bunch of memories that we’ve made together. let’s start from the beginning. picture this. seventh grade. zappias. an eighth grader that you know walks by the window and does a double take while you and your friends chowing down on your plain slices and garlic knots (you would later find out that she in fact saw you and your friends in the window before and pretended to notice you so she could have someone to hang out with). you wave to her and tell her to come in and eat with you. little did you know that eighth grader would become one of the most important people in your entire life. except we don’t have to picture it because that actually happened (you were the eighth grader in case you don’t remember). from that point on you were my person. we spent everyday after school together in either starbucks, greek grill, or mccools to pass the time and procrastinate doing our homework even though that’s what we told our parents that we were doing. for 5 years you have been my person. FIVE YEARS. you have genuinely known me since i was 12 years old and the fact that you’re about to leave me for college is crazy to me. it seems like just yesterday i was cheering you on at your 8th grade graduation. but now here we are. we’ve literally watched each other grow, even though i’m still the one that solves your relationship problems and makes a script so that you can confront someone and you’re the person that listens to whatever dumb thing that i have to say on facetime and spoil me with dunkin every once and a while. not seeing you everyday in the hallways is kind of freaking me out. knowing that the last time i was ever physically in high school with you was all the way back in march, even though we make up for it with facetime every day. but now you’re growing up. i’m gonna miss going for drives listening to our playlist, getting bubble tea, obsessing over random foreign men, you letting me make bad decisions, watching the adventures of moomin over facetime, debating helen keller’s existence o_O, getting chipotle or chic fil a, and most of all, your hugs, especially since your hair always smells nice and you never smell like sweat. you’ll always be the first person i wanna talk to after learning something new and the first person i call to rant to when i’m angry. you’re really my best friend. and even when we’re apart you’ll always have ynka (and i expect my moominpapa). i don’t really know what i’m gonna do with myself when you leave me but i know you’re out there doing you and being true to yourself and i love you for that. when you get all your new cornell friends you better not forget to call me once in a while and expect MANY visits to the point where you would think i went there. i guess i have to end this because it’s getting super long but i’m really really gonna miss not seeing you around and not being abole to get a hug. but i’ll know where to find you so it’s ok. mahal kita chicken.

 
 
 
 
 

Vivienne Germain

Lily Valverde: THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! Thank you so much for being the best senior sister! I learned so many things from you throughout the year about kps. I loved our Able baker meet up, the chocolate hearts, and surprise donuts and cookies! Hopefully we can meet up after this is all over (maybe during the summer?) and catch up! This year was so fun at Kent Place and a pretty easy transition. I hope you have such a great time at Harvard! You will be missed :( - lily <3

Nupur Ballal: Hi Vivienne! It has been great talking with you and getting to know you this year, whether it is chatting during senior sister activities, or reading your insightful text messages that closely resemble five paragraph essays (jk I love texting you). I wish you the best as you go into college next year; I'm sure you will excel at Harvard. I enjoyed the time we spend together, and I hope we can stay in touch!

Charlotte Betz: You are really super awesome, thank you for being a part of my Kent Place experience. I will miss you so much, but you are going to rock college.

Caitlin Tam: Thank you for being a great club leader of Starboard! It won't be the same without your passion and commitment to the club. I'm sad to see you leave but I know you're going to do GREAT things at college. Don't forget to come back and visit Starboard! 

Lilly Fanelle: Dear Vivenne, You were such a creative and supportive castmate. I’m so glad that I got to know you and act with you this year. I know that you will do incredibly in college next year. As they say in theater, break a leg! ~ Lilly F.

Jenna Smith: Thank you so much for everything you’ve given to GSA over these past 3 years! You made this club what it is today, and I hope you know how much we all appreciate it and you. You’re incredibly intelligent, hardworking, and a force to reckoned with. I’m so glad that I get to call you a friend! I can’t wait to see how you take on the world! *virtual hug*

Alex ​Pereira: Vivienne!!! Honestly I don’t even know what to say. I could never fit all of the thank you’s I owe you into one note, but here are a few: thank you for inspiring me, for having faith in me, for always challenging me to be my best self, for vastly improving Starboard through your work ethic and passion, for the hours you’ve spent with me planning new initiatives and reviving old ones, for telling me all of the Starboard history and lore that I will one day pass down to future leadership, and for the 100s of hours you’ve spent being the best co-EIC I could ever ask for. Starboard wouldn’t be what it is today if it weren’t for you, and your legacy will live on. I’m so incredibly proud of you and can’t wait to see you kill it in college and beyond <3

Georgia Rabin: Viv! WOW! You have been such a role model for me these last couple years. From the *interesting* Bazzlebub or whatever that was called last year to the always INCREDIBLE Project Prisms, you have been such a leader. You are smart, hardworking, fun, and have been a great friend. Project Prism in my opinion was one of the best nights of the year (this year AND last year), and you have helped to make KPS a safe space for many many people. Whatever lies ahead for you is amazing!! Never forget that YOU GOT THIS and that I can’t wait to see you when you come back to visit!! P.S. never forget the great vegetable off last year HAHA!!! :))) Anyway, I’ll miss you and I’m sorry I never wrote anything for Starboard.

Leah Cohn: What am I going to do without you in the theatre next year! You truly have become my partner in crime and will always be known to me as my sweet cousin. Gosh, I can't believe we only became friends this winter, I feel like I have known you forever. I am going to miss you so much but I hope you have the best time in college. You have worked so hard and I am so looking forward to hearing about all that you accomplish in the future. Some of my favorite memories I've had with you was when we danced around in the theatre to help each other memorize our lines, simply saying "Orlando" to you on that bench in the scene I really just teased you in, sharing how we each took naps between scenes during tech week but you were just able to magically wake up when you had to go on, and simply getting to talk when we were waiting for our next cue. We really need to visit each other next year and please remember me when you become a famous actor, mathematician and/or scientist!!!

Catie Gilhuley

Bridget Daab: Congratulations on everything you have accomplished this year. I hope your next four years at Princeton are amazing. You have been such a great senior sister, I was so lucky. your dedication to the things you aspire to was inspirational for me, so thank you. you're amazing and good luck.

Leah Cohn: I've got to say Catie, I am going to miss you next year but really I am going to miss Stevie. Without you at school next year I will have no one to talk to about him! I might be your favorite Cohn but he is truly my favorite Gilhuley. On breaks please send pictures of him in his little hats, those always make my day! I wish you the best of luck at college next year and I hope you have a blast. I am going to miss you so, so much and I can not wait to visit you!

Clara Schreibman: I’m going to miss you next year! Thanks for being so helpful and welcoming. You are the best senior sister I could ask for. Remember me when you move to Switzerland or Sweden (my b I forget).... and design better juvenile detentions and prisons! Congratulations on everything!

Thank you so much for a good freshman year, arabella :)

Kayla Drum: Maddieeeeee. I’m going to miss you so much next year, and I can’t believe we’re never going to school together again :(. Playing volleyball with you is always so much fun and I was so happy we got to bond 14s and 15s (even though I wasn’t really on your team) on a team together. You’re such an amazing person and you’re going to do great things in college and after. You better come back and visit and stay in touch! love you- Kayla

Aya Mtume: maddie! being on the volleyball team with you for the past 3 years has been amazing. there’s so much that i learned from you being on the team that i will carry on next year being a libero. you gave me someone on the team to look up to and it’s always nice seeing you yell after every play and scream “push one!” i’ll miss you next year and i know you’ll crush it at carnegie melon!! congrats!! (i was going to attach a cringeworthy video of us from my freshman year but i'll spare both of us the embarrassment)

Haley Murray: I don’t know how you are doing to do Comp Sci when you can’t figure out zoom but whateva. I’ve love getting to know you over the years even though half of the time you’re mean to me. I’ve loved hearing about your “gossip”, especially about Sedrick. Love you! <3 Haley

Natalia Hanchuk 

Zoe Campbell: Thank you for everything you taught me about the yearbook. I genuinely would have been so loss without your help! So glad we got to struggle together over spring break making the layouts, it was always a good time. I wish you all the best at Villanova, I know you'll do great things!

PerfCo Juniors (Nina, Molly, Nyatche, Quinn, Sabrina): Hi Sofia!!! PerfCo juniors just wanted to let you know how amazing you are. You inspire us every day with your creativity and humor. You can easily make everyone laugh and lighten the mood. You are passionate and an incredibly talented writer which we all admire. We already miss your funny remarks and crazy ideas. We are inspired by your commitment especially in times when you have to fake a heart attack or act as a clock. We miss you so much! Be careful of flimsy theater chairs in college that may trap your foot!!

Haley Murray: Sofia, Sofia, Sofia. Words cannot express how much I will miss you next year -even though we will stay in touch bc its not really a choice. I will always cherish your MM announcements, times in latin, your advice, and our time at Disney on ice. I love you so so much and cannot wait to see where you go in life. <3 Haley

Lillian Gabriel: Congratulations on graduating!! There was never a dull moment with you from all the welcome activities to dressing as men for the AMAZING play. Thank you for being an exciting, hilarious, and welcoming senior sister who really let me see what’s awesome about Kent Place. I know you’ll do great at Northeastern. Good luck and I hope we can stay in touch!

Aya Mtume: SOFIFI!! we go wayyyy back. all the way back to middle school orchestra and when you still loved pizza. thinking about the fact that we were in SHREK THE MUSICAL together is heartwarming and cringey at the same time. i remember how sad i was when you graduated in 8th grade, but i still knew that i would soon be joining you in the upper school. but now is different which is INCREDIBLY sad. but don’t worry, i’ll be fine. i’m going to miss you soooo much. i’ll miss your hugs, and your encouragement, and your corny jokes, and listening to you complain about calc or physics in the hallways. you’re such a lovely human being and i wish you all the best in college (not that you’ll need it). love you!

Lizzie Herr

Sophia Famular: Dear Lizzie, Thanks so much for always making soccer practice more entertaining! I loved Calabria and all the other fun stuff we did, or didn't do, during practice.

Alex Pereira: Thank you for your friendliness and kindness ever since I was in 8th grade and you gave me a wonderful tour of KPS (and answered all of my millions of questions)!

Best of luck next year!

 

Isabella Diaz: Hi Grace! I'm gonna miss you so much next year. Im so sad we missed out on golf this year but I'm so happy we had so much fun for the first two.

Lily Kaplan: Thank you so much for being a great senior sister! I loved all our time together from soccer to lunch in town to our google meet. I remember our first scrimmage was against Summit, I was playing sweeper, and I was nervous because I had really only played with a u, but you hyped me up and helped me to play well. Have a great time at college, I will miss you next year!

 

Gretchen Cadranell: Hey Grace!! I cannot thank you enough for always being so kind to me and being there to make me feel better.

We really got to spend a lot of time together in the end of last year in Community Service and during the summer at GLI, and I am so glad we did! You are such a great team player but just as great of a leader. Thank you for helping me out, and being willing to say "yes" even to an impromptu interview! I will miss you and wish you all the best in college!

Jenna Smith: It feels so weird to say goodbye —especially through the internet— almost incomplete. You’ve been such a great friend to me over these past three years and I honestly have no idea how to thank you for it. Thank you for letting me lean on you whenever I forget how to form coherent sentences in Ethics Bowl competitions. Thank you for the genuine passion that you brought to the Community Service Committee. Thank you for being you! I know you’re gonna kill it out there!

Ellie Michalchuk: I can not express to you how much I am going to miss you next year. I’m going to miss our block H study halls, community service chats, fun times at swimming, and seeing you everyday in the hall way. I know that I can come to you with any problem. I can’t tell you how helpful it has been to have such a supportive friend like you. You are going to do great things and I can’t wait to see you at Dartmouth on my way up to Canada! Haha. <3

Eliza Lox: Hey Adithi, I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. I loved being in community service together with you throughout high school and you made it really special. You are such a genuine person with the kindest heart. You taught me what community service really means and how to be a leader. I also liked being involved with POL together. You are also so intelligent and I remember hearing you talk about your bioethics project made me want to take the class as well and I thought your topic was so cool. You are so inviting to the underclassmen too which is important when you are a leader. At the same time you are always willing to have fun and be light hearted. I really looked up to you in those things. I will miss you so much next year and it will be weird without you. I know you will do great things in college and way beyond. -Eliza

Emmy Wheatley: Adithi, thanks for being such a supportive, caring, and open person these past few years. It means a lot that you were always there for me and I am so glad that we got to spend the time we did together in Community Service. I'll miss you next year but I know you'll do great things! -Emmy

Madeline Estey: Adithi, I'm going to miss you so so much! I'm so happy we have gotten closer this year :) I always enjoy spending time with you, even if it is via FaceTime! Thanks for telling me about your latest knitting project, letting me rant, talking about tv shows w/ me, running together (FaceTime runs >>), and for physics help (oh god, thanks for putting up with that). You're going to do amazing things in college! Expect many more FaceTime calls :)

Hopefully, see you soon, and don't forgot to reach out when your home!

Charlotte Post-Lipnick: Thanks for being the best senior sister ever! I loved being your freshman sister and I especially loved being in chamber dancers with you. Your senior project was amazing and being in the dance was so fun. I'm so sad I won't be able to see you before you go to college, but I wish you all the best and I hope to see you soon!

 

Paulina Kachalova: Hi Eleanor! I am so so so proud of everything you have done and I am going to miss you so so so much next year. You make Chamber Dancers so much fun and I love saying "that means a lot!" when you compliment my outfits (okay, maybe that one time you complimented my outfit). Knowing you, I know you will accomplish huge things in college. But don't forget about us! I will miss having someone to talk to about ~quirky~ music, but if you find new music, you can always send it to me. If you have any vlogs, you can always send them my way. Thank you for introducing me to 745 -- life changer! I don't really know what else to say because I am not a good sentimental writer, especially when there are no emojis for me to use, but I truly do wish you the best of luck on everything (even though you don't need it because you are amazing on your own), and I can't wait to perform your senior project when your a freshmen in college!!!

I'm so sorry that your senior project didn't exactly turn out the way we had all hoped, but it's so amazing and I really hope you'll be able to come back next year to perform it with us. I'm gonna miss seeing you in dance every week, and make sure to come back to visit when it's my turn to choreograph! We love you!

ILY!

 

Janeyce McCray

Isabella Diaz: Janeyce! I am gonna miss you so much when you leave for college. I have loved being in high school with you and you are my literal golf role-model. I'm so thankful for our C-block selfies and the times when you helped me with my spanish hw or consoled me after I stabbed myself in the leg with a pencil on the bus. Don't forget cash money and I when you're golfing with your new team (rip). Honestly, I'm gonna miss you so much girl you mean a ton to me.

Anyway, thanks for all the crazy stories during tennis season, and Mike and I will see you next preseason! :)

Caroline McGinley: Sorry your 14 years of school at Kent Place had to end this way. I know you were looking forward to Senior Spring with your classmates and of course graduation. It's safe to say I will be extremely jealous of you next year while you are travelling the world while I stay in New Jersey living as an only child for the first time. I'll miss not having you around and doing tik tok dances together. So proud of you for making it to exactly where you wanted to be.♥

Aya Mtume: garse mcginley. where shall i begin. for starters i was gonna attach a video of me with rigatoni in my hair from star last year but i can’t attach videos but i’ll just let you know that it exists in my phone. i was also going to try to attach a video of you rubbing dirt in your palms so just letting you know that of video of that exists as well. but anyways, you’ve been such a great friend to me and you’re a genuinely hilarious person. seriously your halloween costume almost made me pee my pants. but you’re also very insightful and i enjoy listening to your speak so eloquently about not so sophisticated conversation topics like the ones we’ve had in the senior lounge this year if you know what i mean. you’re always down to have a laugh nd you also stand up for yourself which i really admire about you. i will seriously miss you next year and this will be the first time i’ll go to kent place without you being there so just let that sink in. your eyebrows have had an amazing glow up which i am proud to say i’ve witnessed and i know that will take you far in life. so go and enjoy your michigan men, but keep me posted. go kill it. ILY

Eve Miller

Pilar Torres: Congrats on almost graduating Eve!!! You are going to do AMAZING things at UVA and I am so glad that we got to play all three sports together. You were always so nice to me and I really appreciate that. You made each sport so much more fun, especially on bad days (like when our entire lacrosse career fell apart in one game). Thanks for being so funny and keeping the moment light espcially when we both agree that frustrating things are happening. I am going to miss you so much next year!!! Please come back and watch some games!

Riley Gonyea: Evie, you will be missed next year! You have been a key aspect to my high school experience and next year will be so different, and definitely not as fun, without you. Thank you so much for always talking to me in the hallways and making a quick chat turn into a 30 minute long conversation. I can't wait to visit you at UVA! <3 Riley

Christiana ​Nwachuku: grace!! i'm going to miss you so much! it was such an amazing opportunity to have you as my captain for track. you are such a sweet person and i can't believe you are leaving already. i am going to miss you telling me to stop complaining everyday lol. i know you're gonna kill it at princeton, good luck queen! you'll do amazing. also please come back and visit! i don't know what i'm doing without you there!

Elizabeth Miller: Ok so I just wanted to say that I love you so much (even though you didn't come to my party when i was 3) and I know you are going to do so well at Princeton! Expect many visits! I will miss you so much next year and I'm not exactly sure what we're going to do in chamber without you (R.I.P. Sop 2s). I love you so much!

Keili Murphy

Sophia Famular: Dear Keili, Thanks so much for always making sports fun for me! From frozen bananas to "Not Today Sophia Famular!" you always made me laugh. I hope you have a great time in college!

Alex ​Sinins: Hey Keili! I’m gonna miss you so much next year! I’m so excited and proud of you taking the next step of your life! Who would’ve thought we’d be here from camp at school when we were little. You are always such an inspiration and your positive energy is contagious! Love you and thanks for everything you do!

Grace ​Martin: Hey RAT! Even though you are SCARY girl, thanks for helping me survive stats and teaching me how to play basketball. I'm glad i'm not scared of you anymore. Thank you for motivating me to do my problem sets even when I really really don't want to. I don't know what i'll do without you reminding me what to do in basketball, but you better come visit to BALLING. I can't wait to see you thrive in college! Love you!

Zoe ​Campbell: To my best friend for the past 3. Words can not explain how grateful I am for you. I am so sad to see you leave but I know you are going to do AMAZING things at Gettysburg (expect many visits). Soccer, softball, but especially basketball will not be the same without you. See you for your year 5. Love you K!

Caitlin Williams: You made this past season so much fun to be a part of and the practices will never be the same without you. Thank you so much for welcoming me to the team. I will miss you so much next year. Good luck and I hope you come back to visit!

Elizabeth ​Mastrangelo: Congrats Keili! I will miss fooling around with you on the soccer bench :( I am actually very sad that you are leaving me to run alone next year! Love you and miss you! -Izzy

Sarah Brandstaedter: Keili, through the good and the bad, I can’t imagine not having you by my side. You have done so much for the upper school and have made my time at KP with you the best. Not seeing you in the hallways is going to be super hard, but I know you’re going to be doing amazing things at college. Thank you for all of the advice, all of the talks and all of your help. I wouldn’t be the same without you. Go kill it, superstar! And, don’t forget to come visit once in a while :) Love you xo

Mrs. Ray: Keili, You will truly be missed around school and in my office! Keep in touch forever! You are a wonderful person! And the Ray Family loves you! Hugs to you! Mrs. Ray, Cam & Carson

Annie ​Woodall: Thank you so much for being there for me this year, I really appreciate it. You have been a great role model for me and I know that you will do amazing in college!

Haley Murray: Madame President Keili: I have 0.0 clue what I am going todo without you. I will miss seeing you bag in the lib, without you ofc bc you never actually do work, and hearing your laugh in the halls. I also have no idea how chamber will sound without you next year because of how talented you are. I’m so grateful to have spent 2 years in Latin with you and so happy out friendship had grown. I am so proud of you and cannot wait to see you thrive at Gettysburg. Love you so much. <3 Haley

Shefali Murti

Lindsay Hausman: Thank you so much for being an awesome senior sister this year! I had so much fun getting to know you, and I know you are going to do amazing things in college next year!!!

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Shefali, I know we were never really talked much but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. You are such a kind and genuine person. I had a good time carrying in the Bridges lunches with you and Isabelle when no one else wanted to help and I found that you are an easy person to just talk to and have a good time with. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things.

-Eliza

Haley Murray: To the Latin god herself, I cannot believe you are continuing your latin career through becoming a Trojan. I will miss you dearly in Latin and seeing your face in the halls. <3 Haley

Aya Mtume: shefali. for many years now i have walked past you in the hallways of kent place school. but now that you’re leaving i’m gonna tell you all the things that you may have forgotten, but i sure didn’t. to start off, when you claire and i randomly hung out at her house and in town when i was in seventh grade, when you had to do a presentation about cyberbullying with the fry guys (a classic), and many more. but nothing will top sitting at basketball games with you and talking about our collective love for the man of our dreams, DB (abbreviated for security purposes). there’s no one else that i would rather spend my time stalking this boy or playing evil apples with you liz and stacey over facetime. i’m sooo happy for you and the fact that you’re going to USC (which i predicted by the way) and i know you’ll have an amazing time. ILY!

Nika Naumovich

Giordan Ismael: Hey Nika! Thank you for being such a good senior sister this year and for giving me lots of great advice! Good luck in college, I know you will do amazing!!

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Nika, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. I liked having Chorale with you and see how dedicated to music you are and fun to just joke around with. You have a great laugh. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. -Eliza

Tyler Newman

Megan Wu: Hi Tyler! Thanks for always being a friendly face in the halls. I still remember my first day of school, you took me to the field house and helped me get settled! I know you will do amazing at Stanford, and I hope we can keep in touch!

Giulia Baglioni: Good luck next year!! :)

Chelsie ​Nacelus: Dear Tyler, Wow.... I can't believe you're going to college, and that I'm actually writing a sis note for you! It's been an amazing three years and I am so glad I've gotten to know you and discover just how amazingly special you are and have become! Thank you for being my mentor, showing me opportunities and basically taking me under your wing. Thank you for always smiling and saying hi to me in the hallways and for just simply for being there. From NJSCC to AfroPuff, it's been so fun getting to know you and learning about myself while I've done so! I can't say it enough, but thank you for everything! You deserve all the best, I'll miss you next year :)))

Francesca ​Callejas: Hi Tyler, Thank you for being there for me and answering all my crazy questions! I'm going to miss you a lot, but I am so excited to see all the amazing things that you do! Good luck at Stanford! From, Francesca

Alex Pereira: Tyler, it’s been so awesome getting to know you these last few years! I’m really gonna miss seeing you around next year but I know you’re off to do amazing things in college. I’d say good luck but you definitely won’t need it!

Caitlin ​Tam: Hi Tyler! Thank you for being an AMAZING Green Key president but also a great friend. I will miss you so much next year but I hope you have fun at college because I know you are going to KILL IT in CALI!

Karla Perdomo: Thank you for being such an inspiration in NJSCC and Green key! I hope to one day follow in your footsteps! I wish you all the best at Stanford! You’re going to do amazing things!! I will miss you so much!

Afia Oduro-Manu

Emma Chan: Hi Afia!!! TYSM for always being my kpop meme/cute animal pictures supplier. I could never have gotten through the les mis dance scenes without you. Hope you'll have a great time in college and see a lot of samoyeds in the future!!!!

Nana Yaa ​Oduro-Manu: Good luck in college I'll miss you... I think ;)

Sara Richardson: I'm sure you've been hearing this a lot, but I'm sorry that you were robbed from your senior year. It's a huge milestone in people's lives and the fact that you can't experience it to its greatest extent must be hard. I know you will achieve great things in your future and I hope you don't let this obstacle stop you from doing your best.

Olivia Kwon: aFIa!! you are the best chamber partner in crime a girl could ask for!! thank you for letting me bully you all the time and hanging with me during classes (even tho it was assigned seating that's besides the point). chamber will never be the same without your incredible presence. you are gonna kill it next year!!! olivia :)

Giulia Baglioni: Hey Afia, we had block G gym together just wanted to say good luck next year!

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Afia, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. Geometry and Softball together my freshman year was a good time. It was always fun just talking and joking around together. I saw how driven and hardworking but also genuine you were which I really admire. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. -Eliza

Kayla ​Kim: Thank you for tolerating me sitting next to you in Chamber Singers and for three years of latin (you're truly the CEO of the latin language) and I will miss your STAR memes. Keep on being an icon, ex-xc star. Good luck at Bowdoin!

Nyakera Ogora

Abby Nibauer: hi nyakera, thanks for being my squash buddy the past 2 years and putting up with all my silliness and bs while we were playing. much love, and the squash team will miss you <3

Julia Pampush

Georgia Rabin: Julia! I know that we haven’t talked much this year but I wanted to say THANK YOU for running two of my favorite clubs and for making them into safe and special lil communities. DivCo and FAB are two of the best parts of my week so thank u for running them with such eloquence and passion. You’ve been such a role model for me!! Also, your aMaZiNg outfits have really inspired me to be myself and to become more creative with my fashion too :) (I’m still learning tho LOL). I wish we had more time to get to know each other bc ur literally the coolest, but hopefully you’ll come back and visit!! I’ll miss seeing you in the hallways and in clubs. Anyway, HAVE A GREAT TIME AT COLLEGE NEXT YEAR!! Ik ur gonna do amazing things!!

Anna Peterson: Hi Julia! I am going to miss you so much next year!! Soccer and Portfolio will not be the same without you! You are the best and going to kill it at UPenn!!

Luna Markels: Hi Julia, I'm so happy that I got to be your freshman sister this year, you've been so nice and fun to talk to and i'm gonna miss seeing you in school next year. I know it must be really hard to be a senior right now and I'm so sorry that you won't be able to experience some things the way you were hoping for like prom and graduation, but hopefully there will still be a way to do those things in another way. Also, even though senior year might not have ended the way you wanted it to, it must be super exciting to think about college at Penn (!!!) and everything that is ahead of you. Kent Place is really gonna miss you next year, I know I'll miss you in Spanish class and Divco meetings and FAB and all the other amazing things you do <3 <3 -Luna :)

Nyatché ​Martha: Thank you so much for the constant reaffirmation and support during Project Prism! You are an amazing leader so it really meant a lot to me.

Aya Mtume: pamps. this year working with you has been absolutely amazing and i love that you love DivCo so much. you’re such a hard worker and so dedicated! thanks for all the hallway hugs and letting me come to your house even when i was just a wee freshman. those memories will last forever and i’m so sad that you’re leaving me :( butttt i know that you’re gonna have the time of your life at penn so live it up! ILY!

Mira Pantozzi

Christina Galdi: Hey Mira! It's Christina your freshman sister. I just wanted to say hi and that I miss getting to see you in school. I know that we got to do a zoom call together but it's not the same as seeing you in the halls. I wanted to thank you for being such an amazing senior sister and for reaching out to me in the beginning of the year. I still remember getting your card and a text welcoming me to Kent Place. When I got to school that day I was so excited to meet you and I loved eating the munchkins you got me. I know that this isn't how you thought your senior year of high school would be, but I hope that the rest of the year is still enjoyable for you. Good luck at college next year! I'll miss you!

Kiley Parker

Heidi Rosely: I’m so happy for you Kiley! I’ll miss you so much next year. Thank you for everything!

Sonia Parmar

Liz Khidekel: Thank you for being the best senior sister and making KPS like a second home!

Maggie Sher: Good luck at college queen! I’ll miss you so much at mock trial thanks for being an amazing lawyer and making us laugh<3

Seema Parmar: I know you'll do great next year! Good luck!

Ruby Pollack: Hey Sonia, I'm honestly getting a bit emotional writing this, but I can't believe that you are graduating. I have loved our time together being the only kids FORCED to do the 1 fly at every meet. You are so kind and wonderful, you have made my time at KPS so enjoyable. Swim would have been so different without you there, and I wouldn't imagine a better "club" swimmer to be my friend. You are going to KILL IT in college, especially if you make the swim team( wink wink). I am going to miss you so much, and please reach out when you're in NJ.

Lane Patterson

Iman Handy: I just can't imagine not playing on the court with you next year, like oh my Jesus. I've always looked up to you ever since I was eleven years old, it's CRAZY to think that you're going to college. But I LOVE YOU go do big things and PLEASE COME TO A KPVVB GAME WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS!

Amanda DiTommaso: hi lane, i'm sorry that you and all the seniors never got to finish your senior year. You were a great senior sister and I will miss you! hope you have a great time at UVA! the school will miss you but everyone knows you are going to do great things!

Haley Murray: My dear Lane. I’m so happy that I’ve gotten to know you over the years and am so grateful that we’ve gotten to play volleyball together over the years. I’ve loved seeing you play, and get prettier and prettier every year. I cannot wait to see you thrive at college and will miss you so much. Love you forever. <3 Haley

Aya Mtume: lane. i’m so sad that you’re gonna be leaving me but i know you’re onto bigger and better things in the upcoming years ahead so i’m gonna stop being selfish by being all sad. but that will never erase all the amazing memories we have had for the past 5 years together. i remember when you first adopted me on the soccer team when i was in 7th grade just because you thought i was cute. that was a day that changed EVERYTHING. after that i was sitting with you and your friends at lunch and being friends with a bunch of 8th graders, who eventually left me and went to the upper school but it was ok because i knew i would join them the following year. unfortunately we don’t get that this time and you’re leaving me for good. you’ll never truly know how much our memories mean to me. from goofing around at volleyball practice, to belting FEFE at the top of our lungs, to allowing me to make questionable decisions at parties, we’ve done it all and i’ll never forget any of the time that i’ve been able to spend with you. even though we didn’t get to finish all of our monthly selfies, i’m really REALLY satisfied with the amazing relationship we’ve built over the years. expect some visits in the future. go kill it. love you!

Audrey Perry

Alex Sinnis: Hey! I’m gonna miss you so much next year and soccer won’t be the same without you! So proud of you and everything you’ve done! Love you!

Ava Nalavala: Congratulations Audrey!! I'm so proud of you and know that you will do amazing next year at Wisconsin!

Maeve Phelan

Caroline McGinley: Sorry your time at Kent Place had to end this way. Thank you for being such an amazing senior sister I am so happy we got to spend time together! Have so much fun at college next year!

Catherine Pothier

Sarah Brandstaedter: I don’t think my high school experience would have been the same without you. Swimming was always so much fun, even if it meant we had to struggle through the 5 free together. Thank you for always giving me the best hugs and laughs. Can’t wait to see you kill it at Georgetown!! Have the best time and expect many many visits xo

Zoë Ralph

Madi Moore: Hi, Zoe! Hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this quarantine. Even though I'm only a freshman, I know how important senior year is as a high schooler and I can't even imagine how you must feel about Corona messing it up. I just wanted you to know that even though I can't relate to how you must feel, I'm always here to talk to. I know that you are going to do so well in your future and I'm so excited to see what you do.

 

Christiana Nwachuku: no amount of words can describe how mad i am at you for leaving me. HOW RUDE! anyway, i am genuinely so fond of the memories that we made during the szn including but not limited to: forced starbucks runs after practice, hurdling (let's pretend like I did), and you trolling me and samara. i am going to miss you so so much and covid is so rude for taking away our last szn together. who am i going to force to drive me everywhere? madison refuses to do it :(( you are such a kind, sweet soul and i'm really going to miss you much more than you can imagine. i can't thank you enough for being such an amazing person to me. you're gonna do amazing at penn and i wish you the best of luck queen!! please, come back to visit at least like thirty thousand times, gracias!

Samara Grannum: Wow Zoë I cannot believe that we're here already and that this is it. We've really been through it from kindergarten to know and I just cannot believe that you are a senior and that you're graduating. I honestly could not even tell you when we first became close so I think I am just going to start in Iceland. You, me, Haley and Maddie were inseparable that trip and I think that is when I started to literally tell you everything. When we all pretended to be characters from K.C. Undercover, I was Judy of course and you were Ernie. And when someone kept falling off of their horse we laughed the entire time which was horrible but we still did it. Fast forward to high school where you were with me through it all. Coach Salamon was a whole adventure and we got through it. Remember Captain Zoë and side kick Samara. I still wish I was there to see you fall in the 400 hurdle race at Lawrenceville I would pay money to see that. But I did get to see you get concussed which from my end did not look like a concussion so sorry for laughing. I cannot believe you roped me into doing track let alone hurdle but here we are and I wouldn't change it for the world. I still do not know why you ever allowed the throwers to take me for two weeks but I have forgiven you. We have cried together to get out of track events I've made you cry a couple times and I still cannot believe that you made me cry over sneakers I got from the lost and found. When we slept over at Josie's and we shared a room and just all the good times we had during Winter track, not as much spring track but we still had some good times then too. Track is not where the fun stopped because then we got put in the same calc class. Even though it is not the most exciting it's still something we did. And of course there is BCA where you do like 90% of the work and me and Aya just put our names at the end but that's okay. I will never forget all of our calls and meetings for planning a presentation which consisted of 95% talking about stupid stuff and 5% planning. When you got your license I knew I had my own Uber driver and that we were gonna have the most fun on our adventures and I will never forget when I had to be your back up cam and I made the little beep noises and sped up when you got closer. Zoë you have been there for me through it all and I don't think you understand how much I am going to miss you next year. Thank you for all the bagels and the laughs these past few years and I truly don't know what high school is going to be without you. I have no idea where I am going to go when I am mad at my friends for a stupid reason and then go into the senior lounge to talk to you because I will be the senior lounge. I am so so proud of you and I know that you are going to kill it at Penn. Expect many visits especially since I will finally be able to drive. I can't believe we aren't together for your last few months of high school because we were going to have so much fun in spring track. If you have any gripes grievances or complaints you know I am always here. I love you so much and you will always be one of my best friends.

Haley Murray: Well, well, well, the day has finally come. I cannot believe you are leaving me Zoe. I have no idea what I'm going todo without hearing your laugh in the halls and seeing you around. Thank you for all of the fun over the years and especially for letting me bully you in Primary School.

Aya Mtume: ZOË!! (you see i did the little dot thingys)!! this year has been really fun and i’m glad that we got a lot closer. bca is especially fun since we get to try to boss samara around even though we both know she isn’t gonna do the work anyway. making cookies and going to get the bca poster this year was a really fun time. we really turned bca around with an awesome forum and the meeting of the CENTURY right before all of this corona stuff. i’m really glad that we were able to have those difficult conversations like we really did something and i’m proud of us. i’m so proud of you to, doing all of this stuff and running bca while applying for colleges and being flooded with work i honestly have no idea how you did it all. i’m also relaly happy that you were on divco exec board with me too and were always there to help me with calc when we both didn’t know what was going on (even though you stole my textbook and had me going on a wild goose chase for weeks but i forgive you now) i’m sad that you’re leaving but i know you’re gonna do great things next year. love you!

Mikaela Rice

Maddie Estey: Mikaela, I've loved dancing with you these past few years! You're senior project is amazing and I can't wait to dance it next year!

Helen Pertsemlidis:  I have had so much fun dancing with you this year! I love your Senior Project, and I can't wait to perform it. You are such an great dancer, and your choreography is amazing. We will all miss you so much!

Paulina Kachalova: Bonjour Mikaela. I hope everything is swell. I am going to miss you so so so much next year in Chamber Dancers and French :( I am also sad that we won't be able to attend the Physics field trip together -- I was looking forward to that. I love being necklace buddies with you, and you make me laugh so so much. I will miss talking with you and Eleanor during stretch, and making fun of your baby feet. Even though I never got my CD back, its ok! I know you will do amazing things in college, and I cant wait to see you at Evening of Dance next year when youre a freshmen in college! Exciting and interesting times. Have fun, and good luck!!

Sophie Schmitz

Zofia Juricova: so excited to keep seeing you be the best everywhere you go, especially at Johns Hopkins<3 i love you forever and can't wait to give you a detailed tour of Slovakia when we save up for your ticket;)

Julie Fischer: Hey Sophie! I'm so glad we got the chance to know each other throughout these past couple of years. From deadly hikes in the mountains to beating Oratory and going to regionals, you've always been a mentor to me and I love you so much. JSA won't be the same without us making fun of the guys from GL. I'll miss you and I hope you'll come visit the mock trial team and watch us kick butt at regionals next year. Next time we see each other we're gonna have to refresh our handshake too because its been so long hehe.

Astrid Burns: I'm gonna miss you so much next year! Sorry for not doing mock trial this year haha. I still expect dog updates even while your in college. Good luck in college, I'm gonna miss you!

Maddie Estey: I'm going to miss you next year Sophie! You're so smart and I know you'll do great things :) Thanks for everything this year, from helping me de-stress about English to ranting about... crazy stuff. Good luck!

Maggie Sher: I’m gonna miss you sm my mock trial queen!! thanks for being such an amazing role model and the sweetest and smartest<3

Jenna Smith: My dude! I cannot believe you’re graduating— these years have gone by so fast. In addition to being a killer in the courtroom, you are such a kind and genuine parent to the middle schoolers. I’m gonna have some big shoes to fill next year with them. Speaking of which, thank you for being a great friend to my little sister. She loves you almost as much as I do. I’m going to miss you so much next year! Just know that if you’re ever feeling down, I’d be more than happy to send memes. Good luck with school (not that you’re gonna need it). I’ll call you when we crush Oratory next year.

Riley Wagner: Thank you for always being there for me through everything, and for sitting with me at lunch all the time. I will miss you so much next year, but I can't wait to see what your future holds :) I'm so proud of you and everything you've accomplished. Keep killing it best friend!!

Xenia Schmitz

Georgia Rabin: Xenia!! Thank you so much for all of the rides this year!! I loved getting to know you better and talking about school, running, and life in general! You are so amazing and kind and fun and I am so grateful for your help this year. I love you lots and can’t wait to see what amazing things you do next. I’ll miss you next year!!!! Come back and visit! :)

Zofia Juricova: hi xeni this is my 234802398th note to you this year. just wanted to repeat myself and say ily and will always admire you:) you know the reasons because i mentioned them in my senior day letter that was probably longer than my chp history paper sooo just wanted to remind u of that ok bai

Elsie Shi

Julie Soldat

Kayla Kim: Thank you for showing interest in my bingo back in December. I appreciate it.

Audrey Alix: To my long time bff- i'm not crying, you are. I can't sum up the last three years of our friendship in a sis note, nor do I think that is possible. Thanks for always picking up the phone when I need to talk, and making me laugh until I cry on our long drives to school (I forgive you for the time we went the wrong way down a one way street). I'm hella glad you have a key to my house so that you can yourself in, even when you show up to say hi to Brody and just leave. Basically, I am going to miss you so so so so much. You make me laugh, constantly. Once I get my licence, believe me i'm going to visit. I'll pick you up and we can drive to Emory. Road trip. Family dinner at my house tmrw @8 be there be square, ily. <3.

 

Audrey Alix (2): Hey hey! So your graduating! Wow I remember when you were a soph and I was a wee freshman and we were goofing off on snow days, getting food together, riding down Shawnee mountain, and spending hours doing nothing together. Holy guacamole. So, you have been one of my bffs since then, and boy what the heck and I gonna do without you. Dang. Anyway, I am proud of you!! Thanks for making me laugh and smile constantly, being my literal mother, driving me to school every morning, watching horror movies with me, playing exploding kittens, and hangin with me. Just keep my house key, you'll need it for when you visit. I love you! - Aud

Abby ​Wall: Julie!!! I have had such a great year talking to you and getting your advice on everything. I love you and i know you will have so much fun in college!! Never stop wearing your fish clogs and I'll never stop wearing my heelys

Ellie Michalchuk: JULIEEEE I am going to miss you so much next year. I remember when I was a freshman on the JV volleyball team and you were the absolute sweetest. I am so grateful that you are always willing to help me and talk to me about anything. Thank you for being such a supportive friend. I know you are going to do great things next year!! <3

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Julie, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. I love how easy you are to joke around with but also how you are willing to have serious conversations when necessary. You are an interesting and easy person to talk to. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things. -Eliza

Leah ​Cohn: I'm going to miss you so, so, so much next year Julie! Although sometimes you can be quite cruel, especially when you tell me how cringy my acting is or how much I look, sound, and act like Eileen, you are still one of my favorite seniors. I'm really going to miss annoying you in the halls next year, you pulling my curls from behind and me knowing immediately it was you, you allowing me to sit in the senior chairs for a bit, and you bullying me to go to your clubs. I loved playing patty cake with you, being inspired by your insane ab workouts after play rehearsal to not eat more than one of Ms. Stevenson's lollipops, and putting makeup on before windward coffeehouse. Oh, and we can never forget when you chased after me just to prove you could pick me up, you did get to prove you point by eventually doing it but it was a terrifying experience and I have be scared since. But in all honestly, I am going to miss you so much next year and I really am so happy that we got to become friends over these past two years. I can't wait to hear about all of your accomplishments in college and all of the crazy memories you will make there. Thank you for always making me laugh and making memories with me that I will never ever forget.

Astrid ​Burns: Thanks for being so nice on the volleyball team this year, I'm gonna miss you on the team next year, and getting rides from you, and decorating your christmas tree. You were super helpful during the season and made it a lot more fun. Love you and I'll miss you!!

Madeline ​Estey: Julie! I'm so proud of you and I know you'll do awesome things at Lafayette! Throwing was a time and I'm sad the squad dissolved (whoops rip). Thanks for always letting me rant to you, it's always fun in a weird way. I'm gonna miss you, expect many visits!!

Ryenn Engles: Hi Maggie! I am really really going to miss you next year. I had so much fun with you during our wonderful mud run in which we entered your mom's house! I assure you I will never forget that, as I don't know if I have ever laughed harder. Also, I am going to miss you during soccer and athletic association. You were always the life of the party and I know that nobody can ever replace you on both the team and in the committee.

Tara Ghose: Hi Maya! I hope you are doing well :). I miss you a lot and I hope you have the best time in college. You are so amazing at so many things such as singing, clarinet, writing, sports, poetry and much more, which inspires me so much! You are going to do the most amazing things at Northwestern! Love, Tara

Seema Parmar: To the best clarinet teacher ever, good luck next year!!! I'll miss your poems!

Eliza ​Lox: Hey Maya, I know we were never really close but I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you. I am so happy that you and Adithi convinced me to join POL. It brought out a whole different side of me and pushed me to recite in front of the school, even though you saw how anxious it made me at first. You helped me see the importance of literature and poems in a new way. You have such as love and dedication to that arts which I admire. That day that we all went to support you at POL was so much fun and you were inspiring. I have looked up to you as a leader these pass few years and I hope I can continue on with POL without you. I will miss you next year and I know you will do great things in college and beyond. -Eliza

Tabitha Weidner

Kayla Kim: Hi crisis mom! I don’t know how I would have survived three years of high school without you. Thank you for being the first person from the class of 2020 I wasn't completely terrified of when I was a freshman (although you did scare me for six months but that’s another story). I will always cherish the fun mems we had, like when you chased me down the hall because of a newspaper, I decided to fight you with a fork, harassing you in the junior lounge, and when we both sent duolingo memes to each other via instagram dm’s and the mail. Fun times. Thanks for always doing a video chat whenever both of us are procrastinating on our homework, or one of us has made a bad decision, like sending risky texts or dying hair blue (that's not going to change even when you're in boston). Northeastern doesn’t know what’s coming! (please get rid of the husky mascot, I strongly dislike it) I’ll try not to have so many crisises, but idk how I'm going to get through my last year of high school without you. Thanks for being a Real One. The emo hours are already beginning to hit as I write this :') (while pocrastinating of course) - egg crisis
i decided to write A Poem in honor of your departure
roses are red
violets are blue
duo will follow you to boston
and if you don't continue using the app...

Paulina ​Kachalova: Hi Tabitha!! Congrats on Northeastern, I know you will do great things there! I just want to say thank you for being such an amazing Physics lab group partner, and Science Club leader. Our Physics lab group is a time, especially when we are stressing about when an assignment is due. Thank you for providing a fun time with good snacks at Science Club, and we will miss you next year!! Have fun in Boston, and keep doing you.

Serena ​Zheng: To Tabitha: Thank you for being the best senior sister I could ask for. I hope Northeastern treats you well and that you don't miss your cats and dog too much. Maybe you could sneak Minty in your suitcase? Anyway, I'll miss you and I hope you'll visit :) - Serena Z.

Sara Wheatley

Leah Cohn: Sara!!! I still can not believe that you are going to the same college as Eileen. I am so happy that becasue of this I will be able to see you more next year. I would have been so sad if I could only catch you stealing my outfits during the breaks. Boy would that have been tragic. Hopefully though when you are a FROSH in college (haha got you back for when that was my name freshman year) you won't be still copying me. But only time can tell. Anywho, I'm realizing now that we have know each other since I was in 6th grade. That's crazy! At that time I still thought you were cool, wow, I'm sure glad things have changed. But, nevertheless, these two years of high school with you have been so fun. Looking back, I loved arriving in the senior parking lot creepily at the same time as you every morning for a good month, being a inspiration for your outfits, and you teaching me how to go insane during Sticks. I can't wait to visit you next year and hear about and see all that you accomplish in college. Emmy and I will drive up together so we can annoy you double the amount! How fun!

Sydney ​Humes: Hi Sara! I hope you are doing well during these bad times. This will all be over eventually and then we will be able to continue with our daily lives. Until then, stay positive and try to find the good in this bad situation.

Paige Willsey

Sydney Pence: Dearest Paige, I will miss seeing you all the time next year but I know that you are gonna kill it at UVA. Don't worry when you come back we can definitely hang out (I know you were worried). Maybe even a neighborhood walk? Anyway don't forget about me and Im so excited to see all you achieve!! <3

Ava Zaleck

Alex Anderson: Hi Ava! I hope you are having a fun time in quarantine! Thank you for everything you have done for me and all the questions you have answered. You have been so helpful and kind to me. Although some of your senior year didn't go as planned, I know you will kill it at Michigan! I will miss you at Kent Place! - Alex

Isabelle Zeidner

Elizabeth Mastrangelo: Congrats Isabelle! I miss ~fooling~ around in French with you and messing up our presentations together. I can always count on you to make me laugh. Maybe someday I will go to Bohemian Raspberry. I can't wait to see all you do! Love you!!

Mary ​Carter: Izzy, I know that you are going to do amazing things at Wake Forest and I am going to miss you! You have been the best senior sister I could have asked for and I'm happy that we were able to play field hockey together!

Leah ​Paul: Izzy!! Thank you so much everything:( You're so supportive and encouraging and I literally don't know how I would've survived the past two years of field hockey without you! I hope your college experience is the best ever and that no one trips you as bad as you think I did... Anyways, I'm so grateful that we were able to get closer this year and can't wait for you to come back and play with us whether the ref lets you or not. I'll miss you so much :,( but thank you again for just being the best. Love you <3!!

Jessie Zietsman

Jessica Park: Thank you so much for what you've done for me this year! I really appreciate it. You helped me through this school year and answered my thousands of questions. Good Luck at UPENN next year! I will miss you <3

Anyra Kapoor: Jessie!!!!! I am so so sad that you are graduating and leaving Kent Place this year. You have truly made my first 2 years in the Upper School so memorable with all of the wonderful car rides and hallway talks. Thank you for always responding to all my random questions and giving me advice with everything. Also, thanks for making practice bearable. You are truly the kindest, and most hardworking person I have spent time with. Eric would be so proud of you :). To many more last-minute starbucks runs, crazy driving, and chicken pot-pie. Love you so much!
