MOUNT ZION HIGH SCHOOL
WE GOT NEXT
CLASS OF 2019
August 6th, 2018
Welcome Class of 2019!
Whether you are returning or new to us this year, I want to welcome you to your best year yet. Senior year can be a blur as you keep one foot in the present and begin to stake the other very firmly into the future. You have a great deal of information to take-in, so I will give you my advice in bullet form:
Take care of one another - there is potential for a lot of foolishness between here and May. Many seniors make mistakes that they never could have imagined. Steer yourself and your classmates steadily. Talk with parents. Get help from an Adult. Don't carry burdens in isolation or try to solve problems too big for you to handle.
Tend the garden - all of you have mandatory courses towards graduation. Take care of these every day. Procrastination and senioritis have extended too many of your classmates' high school careers.
Keep your ears and eyes open - opportunities and timelines can come pretty quickly. Be ready for them. Have your resume and draft scholarship essay on-hand.
Leave your legacy - what fingerprints will you leave on Mount Zion High School? How will we be better, how will the community be kinder, because you were here?
Best of luck for this year. You can do this and it will be your best year yet.
Richard Robinson, Senior Advisor
