A Letter to the Class of 1993

This heartwarming letter was written to the Class of 1993. When an alum sent it to us, we knew we had to share it, especially right after our class of 2016 graduated!! It is so great to know that even 23 years later, St. Teresa hasn’t changed. We always have been and always will be a family.
“Hey St. T, Class of ’93, an open letter to you all: My daughter is getting ready to graduate high school next month and oh, what a difference it is from our time. She went to prom last weekend and when she came home and I asked her how it was she said, “Great, it was a lot of fun, but there were so many people there I didn’t know.” This does not shock me at all because you see, she attends a school with over 2,000 kids. It is a sign of the times (and also a public school of course). It breaks my heart that she does not have the many close bonds that we all had growing up. Some of you, I have known since preschool and others, I knew all 4 years at St. T. Yes, we may have had close quarters at times but we KNEW each other. We knew what people ate for lunch, who their parents/siblings were, and we knew that we could count on each other. A lot of time has passed and as is life, we have gone our separate ways but I want you all to know that I am thankful for the time we had together and that we were really able to build strong friendships. Kids today pass in the halls of these larger schools and see strangers, I only saw friends. I hope you all are doing well.” – Traci ‘Clifford’ Boksa
