A Tribute to the High School, by Joy Levin

The closing of the high school this year was one of the saddest events in Imhoff Waldorf history.

“Don’t cry because it’s over , smile because it happened” – Dr Seuss The strangest thing about looking back at an experience is the fact that you find yourself questioning whether or not you enjoyed it as much as you should have.
