Cassie Miller: Hi Bella!! it's been so fun getting to know you these past few years and I had such a fun time with you at Stone Harbor (those brunches really slayed). I hope you have an amazing time at BC!!

Veronica Melendi: Thank you for being an amazing Baggywrinkle leader this year and an awesome person to talk to during PE! Best of luck next year at BC, I'm sure you will do amazing!

Miranda Wang: Thank you for being a great Windward leader this year! I really loved attending Windward meetings and wanted to thank you for making the environment really welcoming and calm. Good luck at college and in the future!

Ms. Cohen: Isabella, you rock. Thank you for all the ways you've contributed to this community, and especially the Archives! Please come back and talk to me about all the Great Books you've explored.

Maya Yie: Hi Isabella, congrats on finishing high school and good luck at Boston College next year!

Ms. Farshety: Isabella, you have been an island of calm and consistency over the past four years, even while managing to keep coming up with different and unexpected things. Who else would teach themselves to read Japanese during lockdown?! It’s been a delight being your advisor the past four years!

Ariel Alleyne

Ms. Cohen: I have loved seeing your amazing cartoon style-- whether it's the Cyclops and his sheep or a scene from a video game of Beowulf. I hope that whatever you do you keep drawing and bring all of those around you joy and fun.

Ava Shannon: Hi Ariel! Thanks for being such a great senior sister sister and giving me lots of helpful advice. I loved hearing your stories about some of the funny things that happened during your time at the upper school. Wishing you the best of luck at college!!

Hannah Asirvatham

Annabelle O'Brien: Thank you for being such an amazing tennis captain this year! It was such a fun season and we will miss you next year!

Phoebe Kanellakos: Congratulations on your graduation Hannah! So happy that you were my senior sister this year, and I wish you all the best. I hope that you have an amazing time at college!

Ava Guarino: Congratulations on your graduation Hannah! So happy that you were my senior sister this year, and I wish you all the best. I hope that you have an amazing time at college!

Diana Reig: Thank you for leading our tennis team this fall! Every practice was enjoyable and our team always supported each other. At matches, everyone had great teamwork and you helped us all grow as teammates through fun tennis games and bonding activities. Thank you so much for leading us and I hope you have a great experience starting college in the fall!

Ms. Cohen: You may be the person I pass most in the halls. That, or you're just so willing to say "Hi!" and briefly connect, that it feels that way. Thank you for being an important member of your class and for all of those hallway encounters.

Claire Bugliari

Lila Gorke: Hi Claire! I really hope you had a great senior year. Thank you so much for being such a great senior sister to me and for helping me throughout my first year at kps! Good luck next year at BC!

Lilly Eccles: I'll miss you Claire!! Thank you for everything you've done for lacrosse, we love you!!

Ms. Cohen: I am going to miss your smile, your eagerness to try something new out, and the intense intellectual spirit you brought to "Identity & Graphic Novels."

  Gretchen Cadranell

Aila Kennedy: Dear Gretchen, thank you so much for being a friendly face in the halls these past couple of months! I wish you all the best in college and strongly believe that you will kill it. Washington and Lee doesn't know whats coming to them. Come back and visit - Aila

Ms. Cohen: Gretchen, We will always be connected through our love of ornamentation, all sorts of neat old things, and the joy of taking things out of picture frames. I will miss your strong, confident spirit, but I know that your next community will benefit from all of your knowledge and creativity.

Rhyan Brown: Gretchen, thank you for being an amazing friend these past two years. Seeing you in the hallway everyday always brings a smile to my face. I wish you the best in college and I will miss you so much! 💛

Gabrielle Liberman: Gretchen, You were one of the first upperclassmen who really made me feel welcome here at Kent Place when we met on the volleyball team in freshman year. When we first met, you immediately introduced yourself with a smile and made me feel at ease. I had no idea what it would be like coming into this new sport I had never really played, but you made it so much fun. Your power on the court was awesome to watch and your team spirit was always present. This year, it's been a little different for us. You went up to varsity volleyball (and killed it by the way!) and we started just seeing each other around the school. Every time you said "hi" to me in the hallway, it brightened my day. People might say it doesn't really matter but I think the mark of a good person is when they say hello just to make someone feel welcome. Both years I've been here, even in small ways, you've made me feel welcome and have always been kind and approachable. I hope you have an amazing college experience! Thank you for being you.

Ms. Farshety: Gretchen, no matter how great a storm was raging around you, you came into each advisory with a warm smile and a can-do attitude. Even a tree falling on your home couldn’t break your stride. It’s been a delight being your advisor and teacher the past four years!

 Francesca Callejas

Maya Yie: Hi Francesca, I loved being in Mock Trial and Comp Sci with you this year and it was so kind of you to dance with me at Semi! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck at Barnard next year!

Seema Parmar: Hey Francesca! I walked into the first day of compsci with a bit of trepidation - I knew only a couple people in the class and I was nervous sitting across from a senior I had never properly met. I quickly realized that you were not, in fact, the scary, silently thinking “wow, this girl has NO idea what she is doing” senior I was imagining (although I realize you could totally be thinking this, I wouldn’t know). Over the next few months you listened to my repetitive problems, was patient during countless class warm-ups, and never failed to wave at me in the hallways. I am so grateful to all of your help this year, and I am not overstating here how much I enjoyed getting to know you this year. I realized that we are indeed very similar, but that doesn’t stop you from adding an interesting perspective to many discussions (ranging from writing styles to serotonin). You bring positive energy to every interaction, and I am both continually in awe of this passion and strive to have the same energy towards others. So I just wanted to say thank you for this year (and I’m writing this on 5/12, so its certainly not goodbye yet) - your enthusiasm, hard work (yes), sheer intelligence, and leadership inspire me every day (or more honestly, every time my code doesn’t compile). It has been so nice having someone that understands the way I think (and in many cases similar situations too) and you can expect to be a tour guide next year. - Your (diagonal) compsci table-mate (seating changes can't keep us apart)

Miranda Santiago: Hi Cesca! Thank you so much for everything this year; I’m so grateful for all of your guidance and kindness. Thank you for showing me around the school, and thank you for being someone I can always count on. I’m going to miss you so much, but I hope you enjoy your time in college!!💙💙💙 Love you! Miranda

Jasmine Algarin: Hi Francesca!!! I'm so proud of you and I'm going to miss you so much. You're so amazing and you've been so nice to me and just everyone. <3 Swim was so fun with you! I'm going to continue to bother you so you better look forward to it

Ms. Cohen: Thank you for all of the passion you've brought to your DEIB work, for a really interesting psychoanalytic approach to 'Frankenstein', and for all of your other thoughtful, sincere work. Congratulations on an amazing Upper School career!

Meagan Canfield

Madison Stevens: Hi Meagan! Thank you for being an amazing senior sister for my first year at KP. You made my freshman year a success from the start. Your personality makes you so fun to be around as you are kindest person. Thank you for everything and good luck at Bucknell as I know you are going to do great things!

Ms. Cohen: Remember when we went to the NY Botanical Garden? I have such a fond image of sitting quietly watching Yayoi Kusama's mirrored balls clink and shift in the little pond. Congratulations on graduation; you're awesome :)

Abby Casamassina

Sophia Gandhi: Thank you for being a great GSA leader, I really enjoyed going to GSA this year. Good luck at UMiami and congratulations!

Jushua Zheng: Hey Recycling -- I can't believe you're graduating. I still remember when we were in Algebra together and you were the only 8th grader that would talk to me lmao. Now you're going to be a college student and marine biologist (really cool). Anyways, I'll miss you a lot and I wish you good luck on your next step. - Josh

Scarlette Liftin: Thank you for being a great Senior Sister, Abby! Good luck next year in college!

Ms. Cohen: Abby! You don't know how much I will miss our talks. From clarinet to the renovation on your house to sea slugs and Sebastian the Ibis, I have learned so much from you. And your Morning Meeting announcement diligence will be hard to replicate. Whenever you're in Biscayne Bay or out on a boat off Miami Beach or even the Seaquarium, remember me! I was there once too :)

Nia Gitau: Hey Abby! Thanks so much for showing me the ropes in Starboard and having so much patience with me. I had a lot of fun working with you to post Morning Meeting announcements. Have fun at UMiami! Starboard will miss you :)

Emma Chan

Isabella Deng: Greetings Emma :DD You're a really funny person and it was really fun talking to you this year! Thanks for letting me use your locker as a primary food source (dw I didn't take any milanos...yet 💪 ) Thanks for all the helpful advice you gave and tolerating how much I annoyed you (headpatting strikes again..) You'll do great in Harvard and I hope you have fun!

Joshua Zheng: Hey Emma -- I can't believe you're going to graduate...that's just weird to think about. Thanks for being there for college and academic questions, just sending me random cat videos, and being a good friend in general. I couldn't have survived french without you lmao. Anyways, I wish you good luck on your next step and I hope you can adopt a cat :D -- Josh

Maya Yie: Thank you for being an amazing Ballast EIC! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck at Harvard!

Helen (Ruo Han) Wu: It was so nice to get to know you this year!! Congrats on college and graduating this year, and have so much fun next year!

Jasmine Algarin: EMMAAAAAAA I'm so happy and proud of you, you always slay. I'm going to miss you so much, you have no idea. Always remember me when you're famous <//3 Again, I'm going to miss you a ton, so you legally have to visit ! ilysm (try to) have fun in college <3

Ms Cohen: An important poetic quotation for you: it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I’m telling you about it

 

Leah Cohn

Veronica Melendi: Leah!! I had so much fun acting in plays and in Perf Co with you. You are an amazing writer and actor! Best of luck next year at Syracuse, I know you will do amazing!

Zoë Espiritu: Hey Leah! You have been an inspiring senior sister and have helped me out a lot. It was really fun watching you act in Silent Sky! I wish the best for you at Syracuse University!

Alice Carr: Leah, being in silent sky with you was such an incredible time. You are an amazing actress and a perfect lead for the play. I wish you all the luck at Syracuse University!

Maya Yie: Thank you for being an amazing Ballast EIC this year! Thank you for always being willing to help, replying to my emails, and working with me on all those layout issues! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck at Syracuse!

Sekai Marques: hi leah :D im so glad to have met you these past three years. i honestly think that you're really cool, funny and an a m a z i n g actor (legit how are you so good at this leave some talent for the rest of us-). you're basically just good at everything, and i think you're probably one of the first upperclassmen i really connected with. perfco won't be the same without the rest of you and the seniors, but i know that wherever you're going that you're gonna absolutely kill it.

Lilly Fanelle: I am so happy that we got to do so many shows together! You so incredibly talented and I really appreciate all of the times you have given me advice. You are so, so sweet, and you seriously give the best hugs! I am going to miss getting to perform with you and chatting with you too next year!

Ms. Cohen: Your performances in plays, musicals, PerfCo, and even the teasers in Morning Meeting have brought me such delight, drama, and amazement. Thank you for your acting, singing, and hilarious timing.

Addison Ismael: Thanks for being such a great peer ed leader and sharing all of your stories with us! Have so much fun in college I will miss you!!

Katie Coyne

Ms. Farshtey: Katie, actions always speak louder than words, and your actions speak of your amazing depth of warmth and kindness. You encourage and support everyone around you. It’s been a delight being your advisor the past four years!

Ms. Cohen: Katie, I can always count on you to smile and say "Hello!" You will also forever be a member of the original English 9, block G, aka GRINGLISH!

Adaora Dadson

Corryne Watkins: Hello, I just wanted to say what a great senior sister you have been and how much I appreciate your efforts to make this year as comfortable fo me as possible despite me being completely new to the school. I know that you will go off and do amazing things and I am excited to see what you will achieve as an adult. Thank you.

Ms. Cohen: You have made every year fun, funny, and so spirited. This is a clip from when we "Netflix Party" watched the Princess and the Frog in the spring of 2020. So glad you were in that chat to lift our spirits and tell us which songs "slapped." :{P

Nana Yaa​ Oduro-Manu: Adaora!! You were a very good prez and I hope you have a great fall at WashU. Go make Ghana proud!! 🇬🇭🇬🇭

Nia Gitau: Adaora!! I'll always remember you as being one of the first faces I saw when coming to KPS. From being an amazing GLI counselor to a fabulous BCA leader (thank you so much for forcing me to come, it ended up being my favorite club), you bring such great energy and joy to everything that you do. I'll never forget your welcoming nature and awesome sense of humor. Go slay at WashU!

Gabriella DePlasco

Veronica Melendi: Gabriella!! Thank you for being a great role model for the past three years. You are such an amazing actor and writer and I loved performing in plays and being in Perf Co with you! Best of luck next year at Skidmore, I know you will do great!

Ms. Cohen: I've learned about so many great books from your Lit Loose leadership! And I always respect knitters, crafters, and good friends. Congratulations :)

Sekai Marques: hi gabriella :D, im gonna be honest when i first met you in my freshman year i was very scared of you. not in a bad way ofc, but i always thought you had a very intense no-nonsense personality. however, the more i got to know you i learned that on top of sometimes being our sole advocate against ms. walden, you're also just an amazing person/actor in general. honestly i think you and the other current seniors are some of the first upperclassmen i really connected with. perfco isn't going to be the same without you guys, but wherever you're headed you are going to kill it :)
 

Lilly Fanelle: Hi Gabriella, I am so happy that we did so many shows together. From helping me not get tangled in my Silvius costume to joking about Mr. Glossman-isms and other funny Far Brook moments, I will miss performing with you! Good luck at Skidmore!

Emma Claire Quinn: Lacrosse has been so fun the past two years with you! Have fun in college next year!

Alana DeVirgilio

Chelsea Cui: Thanks for being an amazing peer ed leader! I loved being in peer ed with you, Cadence, and Allison. It made the days when we had peer ed a little better. I hope you had a wonderful last year of high school!

Ms. Cohen: Keep skating, arting, thinking, and being a great member of the Class of 2022. You rock :D

Angela Hong: Dear Alana, I can’t believe you are graduating already! I still remember skating with you a few years ago, and now, you are going off to college!! Thank you for being the best senior sister! I am so grateful that you were my senior sister and I hope you have made many memorable experiences and friendships during high school! I hope you will make new memories and enjoy your exciting journey through college! I am going to miss seeing you in the hallways and seeing the bright smile you always have on your face! Good luck in college and I hope we can continue to stay in touch! Hopefully, we can go skating sometime together!! Sincerely, Angela Hong

Ms. Farshtey: Alana, you consistently amaze me with the depth of your thoughtfulness and kindness towards others. I have no idea how you manage to be so warm and friendly when you have to get up so early in the morning to go skating. It’s been a delight being your advisor the past four years!

Julie Fischer

Miranda Wang: Thank you for being an awesome member of the squash team this year! You really helped make the team welcoming to new players (including me), and your jokes and advice always made practices and games a lot of fun. We will miss you next year!

Maya Yie: Hi Julie, I loved being in your math class this year! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck in college next year!

Lilly Fanelle: Bonjour Julie, it was fun to be in Chamber Singers and sing Soprano 2 together. I also loved being in French Club, as well as having math together! Bonne chance à l’université!

Ms. Cohen: I recently saw an amazing plate you put together for French Club, and I knew right away it was you. Thank you for investigating Dante with me, for being so kind and caring to all you meet, and for sharing a little piece of your English journey with me this year. Bonne chance!

Sekai Marques: hi julie :D, we didn't get to spend too much time together but i just wanted to say thank you for being such an awesome treblemakers president. from my whole text message/group me fiasco to scheduling last minute rehearsals, you and kathryn were always on top of things and made sure we sounded amazing while doing it. good luck to wherever you are going and thanks for making this past year a good one :)

Ms. Cohen: Ella, you bring passion and dedication to your studies, and I still remember how fun it was to learn how you think and write working together in English 9.

Iman Handy

Abby Werbel: Hi Iman! I would like to start off with you are absolutely insane at volleyball. Not only did you get hundreds of kills but you made a boss team captain. You are also one of the friendliest people that I have ever met. You always make sure that us freshman on volleyball are okay and never fail to put a smile on my face. Im so sad that I only got one year with you but I know that you will slay at Harvard!

Alyma Karbownik: IMANNN!! I'm so happy for everything that you've done and accomplished and I know for a fact that you will do great things in your future. It's going to be sad not seeing you at school in the hallways or at practice, but I know you're moving on to bigger and better things that you very much deserve. I really appreciate everything you've done for me and the conversations we've had. I won't forget what you have done to the team and to me as a person. Good luck in college and beyond that and I'm excited for you!!!!❤️

Ms. Cohen: What a great Class President! It was such a joy to work with you as a leader and a student. You rock :D

Tanseem ​Arampulikan: Dear Iman,
Thank you so much for being an amazing senior sister and I’m so proud of you. You have been such an inspiration to me with your confidence, volleyball skills, and social skills. You welcomed me into the upper school with candy and other treats after practice and we went to 16 handles in Livingston downtown. Not only that, but SDLC and the committee was so fun with you. You were confident and brave in taking risks and I applaud you for that and I inspire to be like you one day. You have been such an inspiration and you’re definitely someone I look up too, congrats on Harvard!!! You’re gonna slay

Sherry Harney

Arabella Hubbauer: Thank you for being a part of Arts Committee this year! You have such great ideas! Keep being creative :)

Logan Corrales: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! Thank you for being the best senior friend I could ever have had. I'm gonna miss you so much :ccc please come by and visit. Honestly you could show up to my house and I'd let you in. I love you, don't forget to call!! - Logan

Ellie Hegeman

Chelsea Cui: Thanks for being a great assistant captain for the ice hockey team this year! You were really funny and made all of the boring practices better. Also, you're role in Silent Sky really made me laugh. Good luck in college!

Abby Werbel: Hi Ellie! Thank you for making this year such an easy transition for me as a Freshman. Not to mention you are so funny especially during your performance at Perf Co. Thank you for being so kind and approachable and I know you will do great things in the future!

Veronica Melendi: Ellie!! Thanks for being an amazing role model in Perf Co (and in Radium Girls... I know that was a while back.) You are such a fun person to perform with and it was great that we were able to do all those scenes together in Perf Co this year! Best of luck next year at Northeastern, I know you will do amazing!

Alice Carr: Ellie, doing silent sky with you was so much fun, you are an incredible actor and such a fun person. You are going to do so well at north eastern, I wish you the best of luck!

Ms. Cohen: Ellie, great Presidenting. Thank you for letting me learn from you, have fun with your class, and for Always Being on Time.

Lilly Fanelle: I am going to miss you so much next year! I'm so glad that we got to do so many shows together! The Peter-Williamina friendship/rivalry is a KP Theatre memory I will never forget (especially when I got to yell and make fun of you onstage!). You are truly such a sweet and funny person and you also give great advice! Good luck at Northeastern!

Sekai Marques: hi ellie :D im so glad to have been a part of kp theater/perfco with you these past three years. you are probably one of the most hilarious people ive ever met, and i really enjoyed all of our backstage conversations during silent sky and being in perfco with you has been a blast. i had a lot of fun writing the botched proposal piece with you and i think it went really well :D. tbh you and the rest of the theater seniors are probably one of the first upperclassmen i really connected with in kp theater, and im really going to miss you guys. thanks for an awesome 3 years :)

Eirian Huang

Chelasea Cui: Thank you for being such an amazing senior sibling this year! You really helped me out in the beginning of the year. I hope you have a wonderful summer after graduation!

Emaan Jan

Sophie Capone: Good luck in college Emaan! Thanks for being the best doubles partner ever!!

Ms. Elizabeth Farshtey: Emaan, you have an incredibly joyous presence and you fill the advisory with light. I have loved “meeting” Fluffy and seeing pictures of your baby cousin (who is actually getting kind of old now!). It’s been a delight being your advisor the past four years!

Ms. Cohen: I love when we exchange Hello's and smiles; you have been shining since I first met you in English 9.

Grace Jones

Nana Yaa Oduro-Manu: Grace!! I’ll miss you when you’re gone but I hope you have a great fall semester. From our talks whenever we saw one another, to you being a great VP and bringing me food. See you at convocation!

Kyrae Brock: Congratulations!!!!! I can imagine that this year has been difficult, but you did it! Even though we didn't get to hangout much this year, I hope that we will be able to in the future. Thank you for being a great senior sister and helping me feel comfortable and welcome at this school. I wish you luck at college!

Ms. Lisa Cohen: Ms Grace Jones (and I say your full name from love and respect... not the other meaning, hee): I will never forget the insight, strength, and power you bring to the study of literature. From your summer reading of JD Salinger in 9th grade to Tracy K. Smith in 12th, your perspective has always enlightened and delighted.

Crystal Jong

Isabella Deng: Where to begin? Attending that random December P.E class and meeting you was a good decision I made. Thanks for all the free food, fun times, and memories of beating you in every single video game possible (please stop sucking in valorant) ! :DD I'm going to miss those headpats (ouch), continuously annoying you, stealing your sandwich, and you just not being in this school for the rest of my three Kent Place years, but you'll do greeaatt in RPI! (Ms Lee would not be proud of my probably-run-on-sentence) This sounds a lot different from my usual messages and it might sound cheesy but I do appreciate you a lot, and hope we can meet again in person one day :D!

Joshua Zheng: Yo Crystal -- I refuse to believe that you'll be graduating in a month. I can still remember when we were in middle school and you kept getting detentions for wearing that one hat. I'm glad that we could stay friends and I want you to remember that we will always be, no matter where you end up going. If you get exiled to Siberia, I'll find some way to send you a letter demanding why you got yourself exiled. I'll always be here for you. You better come visit or I'll make a surprise visit to RPI -- Josh

Logan Corrales: CRYSTTALLLL!! FENCING QUEEN!! Your memes were beautiful and I hope to continue your legacy through the next two years. I'm gonna miss you next year!! Please come back and visit your fencing team <3. I can't believe I have to do puzzles alone next year but maybe one day you can do one with me :) Have a wonderful time in college!! - Logan

Maya Yie: Hi Crystal, I loved being in your math class last year and your dedication in solving that cube/block puzzle was impressive (there’s a photo attached)! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute next year!

Helen (Ruo Han) Wu: Thanks for being my Senior Sister, and congratulations on graduating!!

Sophia Chimenti: It's been really nice having ap compsci and ap physics with you these past years :) best of luck at college!!!

Anyra Kapoor

Sonia Gulati: Thanks for all you did for me this year, I had a great time getting to know you. Good luck at Georgetown! :)

Kathryn Cepeda: Thank you for being the best swim captain this past Winter!! I will never forget all of our laughs and I wish you the best in college!!

Sahana Kapoor: Happy grad sis I love you queen u are gonna slay at Georgetown and hopefully leave some clothes behind for me to keep thanks bae

Miranda Wang: Thanks for being a great ethics bowl team leader this year! When I was a new member on the team, you taught me a lot about ethics and how to think about issues from different perspectives. From beating Pingry at regionals this year to going to nationals in person, your leadership was really inspiring and you have helped us so much. We will miss you next year! Good luck in the future!

Elizabeth Farshtey: Anyra, you approach each moment in life with remarkable calm and dignity. I don’t think we ever finished a conference on-time, because discussions with you were always so interesting that I kept wanting to hear more of your thoughts. It’s been a delight being your advisor and teacher the past four years!

Ms. Cohen: Anyra, in the one year I've served on Senate when you were in 9th grade, I thought, "Wow, I wish she was actually one of my senators" (not implying I'm not fond of Cory Booker). I always vote, and if your name ever appears on a ballot, count on me.

Neera Kapoor

Ms. Cohen: To an excellent hoopster, scientist, writer ... and for all the ways you humbly accepted Most Lost Things... Sometimes Late... but Most Cool. Happy 2022 :)

Caroline Hand: Congrats Neera! I am so happy and excited for you! I hope you have so much fun in college. Have fun at Cornell! :) - Caroline

Quinn Walters: Congrats on graduating Engineera!!!! Bball was so much fun with you and her personality always added to a tough day!

Kelsey Katt

Anabel Wheatly: Thank you so much for welcoming me into the upper school! I hope you have a great time at college!

Lizzy Washburn: Kelsey!!!! I'm gonna miss you so much next year!!! NJ swim forever:)))) Good luck in college!!

Ms. Cohen: You are one of the rare students I have had the pleasure of teaching for 6 trimesters. Your fondness for history, for making literary and cultural connections, the quiet strength you bring to swimming and academics have impressed me each of those trimesters. Maybe you'll take that Paterson class in college and continue on your local lit journey :) (but no pressure, there's many good classes to take!).

Nikki Kintiroglou

Abby Werbel: Hey Nikki! Thanks for always being a boss senior. You are so nice and fun to be around! Your advice for me and Tina is always so helpful. I’m so sad that you are going to be leaving this year but I know you will slay at Tufts! :)

Tina Kintiroglou: Hi Nicole. I hope you had an amazing senior year. Thanks for spilling tea and listening to all of my rants. Go Jumbos🐘. Thanks for driving me everywhere and letting me be in your BeReal. You're pretty cool and I think I'll visit you when you're in college. You should let me sleep over in your dorm. Can't wait for you to drive me even more in the summer!!! You should get me an invite to your little vacay so I don't have to play tennis. This is a bit awkward because you just walked into my room while I am writing this but you don't know. My computer's gonna die soon so I should probably wrap this up. I am gonna miss the morning rants. Have a great summer #HAGS. Have a nice day. xoxo, your favorite sister;)

Nedd Kirsch

Sophia Gandhi: Hi Nedd!! Congratulations on UVA, you're going to do amazing things! Thanks for being a great senior sister :))

 

Maya Yie: Hi Nedd, you’ve always been so kind and friendly and I loved being in math class with you last year! Congrats on finishing high school and good luck in college next year!

Ms. Cohen: Don't dress your cat in an apron Just 'cause he's learning to bake. Don't put your horse in a nightgown Just 'cause he can't stay awake. Don't dress your snake in a muu-muu Just 'cause he's off on a cruise. Don't dress your whale in galoshes If she really prefers overshoes. A person should wear what he wants to And not just what other folks say. A person should do what he likes to - A person's a person that way.

Addison Ismael: Thanks for being an amazing peer ed leader and sharing all of your stories with us! You were so welcoming to me in the beginning of the school year at soccer and I really appreciate your kindness. Have so much fun in college!

Ms. Cohen: What a great Morning Meeting announcer! Also, this is a strange thing I think will surprise you: your name was once part of my many passwords on my computer during COVID. I don't know why, but the Whitney Biennial, Grace Martin, and Gingermints from Trader Joes all found themselves together one day and became part of how I logged in to Zoom and email and everything else. I hope it's an honor and not too much pressure (I mean, the Whitney Biennial was really carrying a lot of the security weight, I think).

Lilly ​Fanelle: Hi Grace, I have loved getting to sing with you for so many years in Chamber Singers and NJYC. You are so talented! I wish you the best of luck at UVA!

I wish you good luck on your next step and I know you'll do great at Hamilton :D -- Josh

Colette Gentile: Congratulations on senior year, Kelsa! You have been such a great Senior Sibling to me.

Plus Krispy Kreme.

I loved having you as my teammate and thank you for always being there for me to cheer me up! I loved protecting you in sticks, especially when you were hiding in a closet and I had to be a distraction.

I am so happy for you and I know you will do amazing things in the future. Make sure to come visit me!!!!

This is the giant Laestrygonian who shows up to eat some of Odysseus' men. Here's to you, Jaileen! For your love of poetry, ideas, art, and having the courage to say 'Just Kids' was "okay."

You're going to go on to accomplish amazing things, I hope you're ecstatic about the journey ahead of you and I wish you all the best in college!

Elizabeth Farshtey: Zoe, it seems impossible to me that there was ever a time when you were not part of our advisory, because you are so much a part of us.

Ms. Cohen: South into Jersey on I-95 rain and windshield wipers and someone you love asleep in the seat beside you, light on all sides like teeth winking and that smell like baking bread gone wrong and you want to die it's so beautiful–– you love the enormous trucks floating in spray and the tall smokestacks rimmed with flame and this hammering in your head this magnet drawing what's deepest in you you can't name except to know it's there.
