Dear La Salle Academy,
With only a couple of days left of school, I can confidently say that I have enjoyed the last four years and wish it was not ending so soon. This school has been my second home and going to college, it will be a difficult transition for me. I have created so many amazing memories and have met so many great people who I consider family now. I knew coming into this school that I would enjoy it, but I never expected to have had the experience I did. The person I am today is because of everything you have taught me and have done for me over the years. You have provided me with intelligent teachers who really care about me and my well-being. Though some teachers have their own teaching styles that really didn’t work with my learning style, they still have a nice personality and I am happy to have met them. I am so appreciative for every single person I have met through classes and after school activities. The thing I value most in life is friendship and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to create many special bonds with special people.This is letter is to thank you for everything you have given me and I feel I should thank everyone who has made an impact on me.
Thank you to the five people who make me smile everyday, and love me for my weird self. Thank you to the girl who’s birthday I will never forget and I will never forget you. Thank you to the extremely talented violinist who just makes me want to hug her every time I see her because of her cuteness.
