And Over Again

Welcome to Andover, new students. Welcome home, returning students. Juniors, stay true. Experience all that Andover has to offer, surround yourself with all that is new, but never forget who you are and why you are here. Lowers, be smart. In the words of the Dead Poets’ Society’s John Keating, sucking the marrow out of life doesn’t mean choking on the bone. Uppers, fear less. Keep your chins up and know that all it takes is discipline and determination to get out alive. You will survive. Seniors, love more. Appreciate the beauty of this school and the beauty of our class. The countdown’s begun, the hour glass has tipped over. Finish out your Andover career without regrets. Every September brings a fresh start. Every year at Andover, we don’t just grow older and wiser, we grow stronger. Here’s to 2009-2010.
