Steps

Dear God,

Today we gather to thank you for this incredible year of learning and friendship.

It is through you we have had so many laughs and memories, and it is through you that we are here right now. Despite the difficulties of this year, we have done our best to rise to the occasion and to truly be a light in darkness.

Today, we have come to celebrate what we have accomplished this year, and to look forward to the next.

 We thank you for our teachers, who have bestowed their wisdom upon us;

We thank you for our fellow students, who are here with open hearts and open minds;

We thank you for our community, which is perhaps the most loving and supportive of all.

Amen.

-Offered by Sarah Long

 

Yesterday afternoon, our sophomore class made one giant leap forward. They have (almost officially) set aside their titles as “sophomores” and can now look fully ahead to being juniors in high school.

Over the past year, they dealt with covered countenances, daily health questionnaires, and one-directional hallways. Without their lockers, they carried heavy loads from class to class, up and down four flights of stairs. They experienced lunchtime conversations muffled by plexi-barriers. And they did it all without complaint.

They set the tone for the freshmen, many of whom began the year with traditional nerves exacerbated by Covid-19. Having already acclimated to the spirit of "Welcome Home," the Class of 2023 showered their hospitality and trademark exuberance upon the incoming freshmen and- in so doing- allowed our entire community to exhale with pride.

With prayers, reflections, and awards, this Class of 2023 reminded each other and the rest of the STA community yesterday that they are a remarkable group of young men and women, for which we are very grateful.

Saints Pride!
