Senior Tribute Letter

May 2020

Greetings MAST Parents & Guardians: 

I hope this correspondence finds you and your loved ones well.  During these unprecedented times, MAST is making great efforts to balance social distancing with maintaining strong connections with each other. It is especially challenging for our Senior Graduating Class that has worked especially hard to earn their well-deserved graduation ceremony and diplomas. To help commemorate this amazing accomplishment, MAST is starting a new tradition entitled “The Senior Tribute” Project. This project is designed to honor and celebrate the achievements of this year’s graduating seniors. 

Our 2020 seniors may have lost much of their Senior year to COVID-19, but we still have this wonderful opportunity to give them notes that share our hearts. Prior to their graduation ceremony, we want to furnish each senior with a virtual envelope containing letters of congratulations, special memories, and encouragement. These letters can also come from other family members and friends who want to commemorate this great accomplishment to our Seniors.

We would like to invite you to write letters to any seniors who are special to you. This project gives you the perfect opportunity to share all the things that you want to say in a format that these special young scholarscan treasure for years to come

We hope that you will take part in this project. Your letters will mean so much to them! 

There are two options for getting the letters to us so we can organize them for each Senior: 

Option 1: Hand write a letter and upload and scan a picture of the letter to the attached google form. 

Option 2: Type a letter within the form. 

(Within the google form you also have the option of including photos that represent special memories that you have with the graduate). 

A copy of this letter will also be placed in the envelope with the graduate’s diploma and official transcript. 

We want all letters to be personal and confidential as well as surprise on Graduation Day. As a result, please do not share your special message with our scholars. The deadline to submit your letter is June 10th, 2020.

Thank you for all you’ve done (and continue to do) to support our seniors! 

With profound respect and gratitude, 

Allika Thompson-Young 

Principal
