A Big Bite-Graduation Edition-Seniors 2021

 Every year I attend Franklin High School Graduation.  I head to the cafeteria to see the Seniors, my former 4th graders, to take a picture with them and find out their plans for the future before they walk into the gymnasium.  Then, on Friday night, while they are enjoying the all night party, I post the pictures to the blog.  This has been one of the highlights of my career; getting to see my students, all grown up and heading out into the world to blaze new paths and make their mark.  This year, just like last year, I have had to come up with a different plan.  I emailed as many of them as I could track down and asked them to create a slideshow for me to share, just like I would  any other year. This year's Senior class is one of the BEST!!! They are my "Newtown," class and I will NEVER FORGET THEM. Some of them have stayed in Franklin but many have moved on.  These incredible JFK Ladybugs are going to do so many amazing things with their lives; there are going to be teachers, doctors, artists, engineers, business people, and scientists. One of these outstanding seniors, Matthew is joining the wrestling team at Sacred Heart University and this is just WONDERFUL!!!!  Some of them are still deciding what they are going to do with their lives and that is OKAY!! It is difficult to know what you want to do EXACTLY with your life when you are 17 or 18.  They will figure it out, I know, because they are hard working, determined and special human beings.  Go forth Ladybugs, be happy, live in peace, follow your dreams and make yourselves proud.  I'm already proud of you.
