Today is Commencement Day, Graduation Day. For those of you who have Senior siblings and friends, this is a day that everyone of you should be looking forward to… In 2 or 3 years that will be you walking across the stage and I hope to see every single one of you get there!!! So with that said, it’s called Commencement Monday for a reason, so let’s get there.
For Commencement Monday, I want you to think about the word commencement. It means to a new beginning or start. It’s funny that the last day of your high school career is called Commencement, but it makes sense as well. The last day of H.S. is your first day as an adult out in the real world starting a new adventure and chapter in your lives. So for today’s extra credit, describe a moment in your life when you started something new. Maybe it was your first day at Hancock or at a job. How did you feel as you commenced the new chapter of life? Respond in the comments and receive 5 points extra credit.
As we reach the END, please keep working diligently towards our end of the year goals! Please see me if there are any assignments you are missing or grades that you feel need improvement. Continue the hard work as we reach the final stretch towards SUMMER.
