It is my pleasure to welcome friends and teachers to graduation day at the ALA academy. How do we measure the time we’ve spent in ALA academy? In the beginning, we measured it in class periods, counting down the day to eventual freedom. As the days and weeks passed, we measured it in semesters, and later in years as we moved from being those first level students, to becoming graduating students who thought they had it all figured out. As young people, you will leave ALA academy and go many different directions. However, you will always have your foundation here. A foundation that comes from the combined efforts of your teachers and families. That foundation includes strong academics, but also much more. It includes the work that you have done to learn to fix your own mistakes, to talk problems out with a friend to come to a resolution that serves everyone, to think independently about your learning and goals, and yes, most importantly a foundation built on respect. You will build on that foundation as you continue to discover who you are in your next exciting steps of life. Congratulations my fellow graduates of the level five. Wherever we go and whatever we do, may we always be friends when we meet again.
