"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters compared
to what lies within us." Ralph
As you embark on your journey through middle and high school, remember
to follow your heart, to be true to yourself, and to be kind and empathetic to
others. That will seem very hard to do sometimes but, Killington
Elementary School has provided you with the tools to dream big, to value
yourself and others, and to take responsibility for your decisions and
actions. These are the ingredients for becoming a successful, responsible
student as well as a trusted and respected citizen. With this knowledge
and the support of family, teachers, coaches, and mentors, you will have
the necessary tools to build a healthy, happy, and successful future.
Killington Elementary School is very proud of the fine students you have
become! The class of 2017 will always remain in my memories as artistic,
creative, intelligent, sincere, and, most of all, contributing members of the
community. It is not uncommon for KES alumni to return periodically to
visit. You are now part of that alumni family of Killington Elementary
School and we will always welcome your return visits with open arms.
This graduation is one of many ceremonies you will experience in your life
and emotions will often seem bittersweet; bitter because we will miss you,
sweet because we couldn't be more excited in knowing that there is a world
of opportunity waiting for you!
"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no
path and leave a trail." Ralph
