Well….done! U RoK!

Stamey, Molly
Molly, love your ability to laugh and smile but yet takes things seriously when you have to. SAS was never the same.

Where you go, adventure awaits. Whatever you do, avoid Snowy Waters!
Molly, I was so sad I didn’t get to have you in Calculus this year. I would pop in to 2nd period with you all because I missed my former students :/ Also because I might have been bored.. but mostly because of you all! I pray that you would be blessed with more wisdom, discernment, and boldness in all that you take on. Keep on being you: bright, safe, welcoming, and loving. -Mr. Lee

Your humor is so great and never at the expense of others. Your caring for the well being of your fellow man is so impressive for someone of your age. The future is yours for the taking. I cannot wait to share my Manoli stories with future robotics kids. Be safe and stay the course, sir. Always all my best.

Tran, Tia
Tia, I remember the quiet girl who doodled in her notebook in the back of the room in ninth grade. What a contrast to the confident woman who smiles and serves it in front of the entire school! May your chameleon streak serve you well in the uncertain — but certainly brilliant — future.
Hey Tia, congratulations for finishing up high school! It’s been really fun getting to know you both in Algebra 2 and outside of class too! So, by now I feel like you have moved on to work at braganza tea by now since you’ve hopped around boba shops! HAHAHA. Anyway, keep pursuing your passion and curiosity!

Trimbell, Genevieve
Not everyone thinks that being the best writer around makes you the best overall person. But I do. By that measure there’s going to be a lot of envy surrounding you as you emerge into what we all agree to call the real world. It’s scary to think what you could achieve.
Genevieve, From Algebra 2 to Calculus AB you were always one of my hardest working students. I have always been impressed by your maturity and ability to process complex ideas in a way that makes sense for you.

Haddy, I have never had you in class, but your leadership this year in BSU was outstanding. I watched you lead the Step Team as you all created and implemented a Step show that blew us away during Black History Month. The leadership you showed in creating and performing in our BSU assembly that examined racism in the PNW was superb and enlightening to all. It was an honor to work with you and I look forward to hearing about the great things you’re doing in the future! Congratulations on your graduation. Mr. BC

Vu, Timothy

Shorewood was lucky to have you as part of our community, and we wish you all the good things!

Wong, Haley
Haley – I believe the universe brings people into our lives for a reason. And I am so glad that I listened when asked to coach the girls team. The universe knew where I was supposed to be. The hard work and efforts and your dedicated energy are unstoppable. You are inspiring many around you – when you aren’t looking. I know you will move forward in every way with positivity and carry your light and let it shine bright.
Haley – you were such a bright spot to our Honors Bio class! I appreciate your work ethic and am so impressed with your ability to manage your golf commitments and school commitments. Best of luck to you! Mrs. Mann

Wright, Caleb
Caleb, I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to be your teacher for awhile. Keep standing tall, working diligently, and asking great questions. Expect the best from yourself, and encourage the best in those around you. There is nothing you can’t accomplish, and I’m looking forward to hearing about what your adult self becomes.
Dear Caleb, I consider it my great blessing to have been your teacher for the last two years. The kindness you showed me when I became part of the AVID family made coming into that tight cohort easy. I’ll miss our conversations and your unique look at life. We can pick up where we left off when you visit once this is all over. Good Luck in your next chapter of life.

Wymer, Gentry
Gentry, It has been my pleasure getting to know you over the last 4 years! Of all the students I have taught I know you are going to do well after high school since you know yourself so well and have such confidence. I have appreciated talking about nerd culture during lunches and I want you to know you will be missed. Best wishes in all things!
Gentry, your energy and humor was a highlight of English 11 last year. I am glad that I had the chance to get to know you last year in English 11. Congratulations on your graduation! I know you will find your place in the world because you know how to share your passion with the world.

Wynd, Jackson
Jackson, I remember when you were just getting started at Shorewood after a cross-country move — you were so quiet! I love to remember that when I see you in front of the whole school with the drumline, owning it. I know you’ll find your place as you move forward — congratulations! -HL
Jackson! Your quiet demeanor in class is just a cover for your AWESOME stage presence in the drumline! Keep both of those good parts of you going as you head out into the wide world!

Yang, Anita
Anita, I’ve always admired your can-do attitude. You seek to challenge yourself always, and manage to bring creativity and levity even in difficult circumstances. I know you’ll meet whatever challenges that lie ahead with grace and greatness. -HL
SAS will never be the same. Your laughter, jokes, and (usually) upbeat attitude helped the underclassmen learn what life at SW is really like πŸ™‚ I’m going to miss your ‘let’s argue about something’ mentality, but how nicely you always debated!

Yared, Joseph
Joseph, you’ve been a bright light in the halls of Shorewood from the moment you walked in. I’m sure your ready laugh, compassionate ear, and curious mind will light your way into whatever amazing future you choose. -HL

Hannah!!! US History!!!!! I loved your willingness to dive into US History curriculum, and the fact that you care so much about people, and our world. Your passion for social justice shines through, as does your general curiosity. Keep at it and enjoy a lifetime of learning!

Thank you for being such a positive presence at Shorewood. Congratulations and best wishes to you in your promising future!

Zapanta, Ben
I know this year was not easy for you and I’m guessing an international pandemic has not made it better. Just know that I’m rooting for you. When you wrote in my class about some of your struggles, they reminded me of my own attempts at figuring out what matters and what it’s all for. It’s not easy for anyone. Just know that you’re not alone.
Ben – I really enjoyed having you in class. Your classmates LOVED you! You have the ability to make people laugh and feel good. Wishing you a happy life full of big adventures.

Zekarias, Senay
Senay, I can’t believe I got to be your teacher for not one, but TWO years! How was I so lucky? While you were definitely a joker, You never managed to let your sense of humor run too far; you always knew when to knuckle down. Congratulations, and best wishes for your future. -HL
Senay, It was such a pleasure having you on our Culinary Arts team this year! Your hard work and quick wit were very much appreciated by all. Best of luck for what I am certain is a very bright future. Chef D

Zirkle, Kevin
Kevin – It has been fun having you in various Math classes. Your quiet sense of humor and ability to roll with whatever comes your way has been a joy to see. I am excited for you to get out into the world and have the opportunity to engage in something that best suits you!
Kevin, Even though I never formally taught you it was a blast getting to know you in homework club. Even though you didn’t want to be there you kept a really good attitude, even with my bad jokes. I saw so much growth in you your freshman year and even though I haven’t gotten to talk to you much since then I want you to know that I believe you are going to do great things after high school. I wish you the best in all of your future endeavors!

Zobrist, Jonathan
Blake, I can’t wait to see what you do after high school. Every day in class I had the feeling that you were capable of just about anything and that it was just the hidebound traditions of high school (i.e. me) weighing you down. Not only that but you never failed to think about how your actions affected others. You always seemed to think about the greater good. Good luck in whatever you choose to do.
Blake – so grateful to get to know you in class. You are kind and respected by others. Best of luck on the journey ahead. Know that you have everything in you to be a success! Mrs. Mann
