What I will miss about Shattuck-St. Mary’s…

May 05, 2015


We asked our seniors to answer this one question: “What will you miss most about Shattuck-St. Mary’s next year?” During the final weeks of school we will share their thoughts with you. We know what we’ll miss next year - our Class of 2015.

From Daryn Finkelstein’15

I spoke with an alum from the class of ’51 the other day and he said, “I don’t come visit here to meet my old friends or to see the place I used to call home. I come here to find the little 13-year-old boy I used to be, if I look hard enough I can always find him again.” I will miss the shy 8th grade girl from The Woodlands, Texas. I am going to miss the innocence - the moments I didn’t realize would become fond memories. All of those times I thought life couldn’t get any harder, and then it did… I will miss the 2nd time I graduated from the Middle School, feeling my heart shatter as I said goodbye to my lifelong best friends. I remember my first edge class with the figure skating team two weeks before school started, intimidated out of my mind to skate in front of the seniors. I remember making a fort with my roommate on a headmaster’s holiday. I remember waking up at 6am just so some friends and I could go to the coffee shop before finals. I am leaving that girl behind. I am going to miss her.
