In accordance with St. Paul Academy and Summit School tradition, the Opinion Board has been transformed into the Thank You Board for the last two weeks of school. Upper School Council, which moderates the Opinion Board, creates the Thank You Board to offer a space for members of the school community to thank students, teachers, peers, colleagues, and anyone else deserving of thanks.
Among the students to post notes on the board is junior Milo Wittenberg, who offered thanks to his history class. “I think it’s important to have a forum in which to express one’s gratitude because that so often goes unacknowledged in this community,” Wittenberg said.
The board is still open to announcements and opinions, but USC hopes that its primary function will now be for expressions of gratitude. “The Upper School Council put up the Thank You Board in order to foster a thankful community as the school enters into the stress of finals and to end the year in a positive light,” USC co-president junior Claire Walsh said.
