To the Graduates

Graduation Cap and DiplomaThe Manchester NH high schools will hold their graduation ceremonies on Saturday, June 13th at the Verizon Wireless Arena. In honor of those students and all the graduates, here are some words of wisdom that you can share with them. These statements come from Jordan Catapano’s article, “The Friday Five: Words of Wisdom, Quotes for Graduates.”

“‘It’s not about the content, it’s about the skills you’ve learned.” Students may not need to remember the specific details of each book they’ve read, but they certainly need to remember how to analyze a piece of communication. They may not need to recall every formula they devoted to memory in math class, but they do need to be able to think critically and logically.

“Good decisions come from good knowledge. And good knowledge comes from good learning.” If anything, students should have learned how to learn. If they want to be successful, they need to know how to acquire the information they need to reach their goals (links to an article from TeachHub about goal setting).

Character is just as important as knowledge.” While schools have worked rigorously to endow students with a priceless set of academic skills, students’ success depends just as much on what type of person they are. Kind, forgiving, rational, patient, caring, communicative, moral, responsible students are the ones most likely to lead enriching lives.

“True learning is life long.” A little cliché, but essential for students to understand. At some point, they need to take the reins of their education and pursue the passions, interests, and necessities that will empower them throughout their life.

“Take advantage of your relationships.” As students steadily transition from children to adults, they need to forge strong bonds with the professionals around them. Instead of looking at adults as merely “parents” or “teachers,” they need to begin seeing them as peers who have invaluable advice, experience, and perspectives that can serve to put them in a better position for success.

Congratulations to the class of 2015!             Graduation Cap
