By Naina Sharma, 

This year has been an emotional rollercoaster, that we have finally got through. There have been many ups and a few downs, but we’ve got through it all, as a community.

The Ascend community. The students, teachers, and the staff have all worked remarkably hard to make this year amazing!

It has truly been an amazing experience being a part of MYP this year.

We would like to thank all our teachers for being so supportive and helping us through hard times. Even though some of you are moving on, you will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and will always be remembered in our school.

Thank you to Ms. Rohini, who has not only been our teacher and supervisor, but also a friend, and someone who helped the student not only with academic related problems but personal problems as well. Thank you for always supporting us.

Thank you Mr. Sakhar, for always being someone we could come to with all our problems, someone who would understand our jokes, and relate to us in a way that helped us. Thank you so much for being an amazing middle school head!

Thank you, Ms. Judith and Mr Adoyo, for being more like friends to us than teachers in the time that you have been here, thank you for supporting us, and thank you for being some of the coolest teachers we’ve had!

Mr Henry, Mr Amit and  Mr Thomas thank you for being someone who has guided us through the school year and thank you for helping us solve our problems, and allowing us to be free in your class, and thanks for being so passionate and persistent to teach us.

Ms. Leslie, Ms. Shital and thank you for helping us make the school year full of fun and laughter, and thank you for helping us make the dance amazing!

Also a thank you to all our specialist teachers, Mr. Carl, Ms. Saumya, Mr. Andrew, Ms. Sushma, and Mr. Bernat, for teaching us to branch out our creative skills, through different forms of arts and design, and through different languages!

Most importantly, thank you to all of the students for being such amazing learners, and making the school year the best ever! After all, what’s a school without students? Ascend would not be the same without each of you, thank you for always being enthusiastic and happy to be at school! To the students and teachers who are moving on, thank you for being here at Ascend and making it a really special year. We wish you all the best moving forward, you will always be a part of our school. Good luck!

This year was filled with fun, and learning. Thank you to everyone for making this year so special! Have an amazing summer, and an even better school year in 2019-2020!
