Senior Letters

Senior Letters

One of the traditions that I started at LPS was something we did all three years I was there. My high school (Go Spartans!) had a tradition of having the senior teachers write letters for a student they felt close to, and giving it to them their last week of high school. I continued that tradition at LPS and had other teachers and admin help me write a letter to all of our graduating students. We would pass them out at graduation (an event all our seniors would definitely be there for!) and help them celebrate their successes one last time.

I had the privilege of collecting and helping pass them out at graduation, and it was just a little reminder of how much I love my students and what I do. I hope I like my students and coworkers as much at my new job as I have loved my last.

Have you ever written a note of congratulations for someone? Anyone you mentored or watched them graduate from their program?

Love,

Wax Seals

I have a habit of collecting arcane and trivial things, such as wax seals. I have a few now that I like, and use often when sending out formal letters like party invitations and thank you notes. My parents know my hobbies well, and thoughtfully gifted me with a new wax seal and colored wax. I was so excited to use it on my thank you notes. I was pretty pleased with the results!

New Seal

 

What do you think? Are unique seals, handwritten letters and waxes a thing of the past? Do you have any unusual hobbies?

Love,
