4 Lessons From Albert Einstein - A Grade 5 Commencement Speech

Good morning! I extend a very warm welcome to our Parents, Relatives, Faculty, fellow Administrators, and most importantly, to our 58 smiling fifth Grade students…the class of 2022 here in front having just received their Lower School certificates on our 177th year as a school. Congratulations! Today is your special day—the crossing from the comfort of the known, our Lower School, to the new and unknown to many of you, the Middle School. New classrooms, a new dining room, a new library, new teachers, and new classmates. These are indeed exciting times ahead for you and likely a small bit of nervousness may be mixed in with these feelings, too.

Five Ways to Lose All Your Money in High School

Welcome to high school, the premier destination of financial instability, second only to college. You’re going to want to take a seat, literally, because the moment you stand up and do anything, it’s probably coming out of your pocket. Now it’s true, one of the last things high school students will ever care about is their market presence and portfolio management ability, but when college hits, and they’re stranded without the luxury of a parent’s income, they’re going to be wishing they had a plan and that they had saved a little more. Everyone’s financial circumstance differs, and coming up with a suitable plan to fit your specific needs should be tailored to your skillset, so presenting you with a general template won’t work. Instead, I’m going to share with you, from my experience, some of the largest money black holes to which a high school student can fall prey.

Here are the five ways to lose all your money in high school.

  1. Go to the movies. People, stop buying the popcorn, treats, and sodas! I’m not crazy, right? That junk is expensive and bad for you. Where did this notion of a ‘movie-going experience’ come from? In today’s age of technological advancement and time wasters, there are so many other areas where a student can spend his or her time.

A Senior Looks Back

When I was asked to reflect about my time at Sewickley Academy, it took me a little while to decide what to write about. I began by going through the years in my mind to try to find a great story to tell, something that is really funny or something that defines me as a student. I considered the time I wanted to be the next field hockey star in fifth grade, or when I wanted a lead role in the fifth grade play, or maybe even that time in middle school where I thought I would be the next star lacrosse player. All of those didn’t work out quite as planned.
