The school year is coming to an end and like many I’m excited to graduate and ready for summer. However, before we go and leave the Telstar to the future staff, I’d like to write about how much I love the amazing students amongst our fourth period journalism class.

This is my second year in journalism with Mr. Strattan and I’ve enjoyed both years, although this year I’m so happy to say everyone in the class is very friendly and we all love each other. I’ve never been in a class where every single person gets along (for the most part) and is genuinely comfortable to be themselves. Mr. Strattan has been an amazing teacher and I’m so glad my friend (Aria) convinced me to join the class, which I will never forget. Mr. Strattan is definitely my favorite teacher and I’m glad I had the opportunity to have him for two years and I’ll most definitely be returning later on to visit and bother him.

I really don’t know what I’m going to do when I don’t have a pitch meeting every Friday and we’re not pulling all our chairs together in a circle to discuss our agendas for the upcoming week. Will the tradition of a light bulb filled with skittles be given to the person who gave the best feedback continue? Will John Kraus continue to give each team their five minutes for discussion? Will creative media persist on sitting “outside” the circle? It’s crazy to think I won’t greet Mr. Strattan everyday at the door (he always holds open) and walking in the classroom to acknowledge everyone in the room. I’ll never be able to joke around with all the members of creative media (Noah, Steven, Ali, Jarryd, and Shane) and play Roblox with them, after we’ve finished our work, of course.

I’m going to miss each and every one of you so dearly, you all hold a special place in my heart. I’m so proud of how we’ve all matured and grown as writers, editors, and producers. Telstar is something I’ve always been so proud of and never once hesitated to share it with anyone or add the icon to computers around me! I always appreciated my other teachers who read and gave great feedback on the articles that took a lot of hard work.

I really hope the next staff members carry on the love and traditions we’ve all started and cherish the time they have with Mr. Strattan and each other. I hope they keep up with the birthday wall, birthday and holiday celebrations, and most of all the wonderfully produced Telstar we all value. Thank you Mr. Strattan and each and every person in the class for the dedication and hard work! Good luck to everyone I’m leaving behind, sadly, and the future staff of journalism.
