Thank You For Teach­ing Me About Social Justice

by Ruby 20

Hi Teach­ers and Admin,

I hope every­one is healthy and finding ways to stay enter­tained. My mom and I have spent the past few weeks racking our brains on what the perfect gifts would be to show you guys our appre­ci­a­tion for your commit­ment to creat­ing an envi­ron­ment that has enabled me to grow and learn. Waverly has been inex­plic­a­bly special to me, and the teach­ers and admin of my last few years have had a profound effect on my quin­tes­sen­tial Who am I?” teen-hood quest. Through Waverly, I have found a deep passion for social justice, so we thought an appro­pri­ate gift would be to make a dona­tion for any orga­ni­za­tion of your choice in your names. Each of you, please let us know an orga­ni­za­tion that is near and dear to your heart. I miss you guys a lot a lot a lot. 

Best,

Ruby
