We thank God for the blessings of this school year. God of all times and seasons, as we move towards the end of this school year, we turn to you with hearts filled with gratitude for all you have helped us to learn and be. Throughout this year, our school community joined together praying, studying, laughing, and sharing all the ups and downs of our time together. Every time one of us extended a helping hand to another, every time we forgave each other, every time we put our trust in you, your son Jesus Christ, was present among us. May we carry the love we have experienced this year out into the world this summer and always. Amen.
