Mrs. Pyles 11th-12th Grade English

June 2017

The 2016-2017 school year seemed to go by so quickly at times.  It was a year filled with memories and work.  Learning about the beginning of our country’s literature was a major part of this year’s English class.  One of the more important themes of our earliest writers centered on the providence of God and His involvement in the daily lives of each individual.  Though later writers drifted from that belief, the truth is unchanged and can be demonstrated in so many ways in our own lives.  Reviewing the basics of sentence structure and punctuation one more time showed us the intricacies of God’s design in the gift of language with which He allows us to communicate so well.

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 on completing your final year of high school!  Seniors – graduates, as you step out into a new adventure, don’t forget the lessons you learned in English – and in all your other classes.  I am privileged to have been a part of your academic world for the past two years.  I pray God’s richest blessings on you as you continue your education.

Congratulations to the juniors also.  I am so proud of each of you – June Kim, Kaitlyn Nelson, and Rachel Speakes – for the Superior ribbons you earned at the ACSI Southeast Regional Creative Writing festival and look forward to seeing your poems and story published in this year’s book.  Let’s do it again next year!  Enjoy your summer break, and I will see you in August!
