My two favorite days each year are the opening day of school and graduation day. These calendar bookends reflect a natural alpha and omega of the school year, particularly for those of us who have spent long careers in education and whose lives are so closely intertwined with these well-established milestones.
Later today we will honor the 331 members of the Class of 2022 who represent the 153rd graduating class of Wellesley High School. Many of these students have been with us from Preschool or Kindergarten and, as such, I’ve always believed that graduation represents our capstone project as an entire school district. These students could not have arrived at this point in their lives without the support, care, and instruction that you provide each and every day.
Whether you are in attendance today or not, please know how appreciative I am of all that you have done to help our graduates along the way. Congratulations on a job well done!
Best regards, David
