BHS Student Spotlight

BHS Student Spotlight    BARTLETT HIGH SCHOOL - STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

 

We would like to take the opportunity to highlight some of our remarkable students. 

9th Grader Olivia T. submitted the following to her English teacher who thought this was worthy of passing on"

"...I do not make promises a lot, if ever.  I made a promise to myself starting the new year 2021...that I would TRY.  Just the word TRY.  Nothing else but to try.  Of course, that could be applied to many instances...try to become smarter, prettier, healthier, even greater.

To me, the word "try" echos many meanings, but they all have one thing in common and that is to try before giving up.

I promised myself to try...try anything, try everthing, try something...but to just try."
