Dear Brooklyn City Schools Community and Graduating Class of 2021,

I want to start off this Hurricane Watch by dedicating this message to the Brooklyn High School Class of 2021. Your graduation this year comes as the world is recovering from a global pandemic. This year you have defined your legacy and the impact you will leave on your fellow classmates and teachers will be felt for years to come. 

You will be the class remembered for enduring schools being closed, and remote and hybrid learning being the pathway to your commencement.  You not only endured, but you excelled through these difficult and challenging circumstances.

Your attitude and spirit in the face of the many restrictions placed upon you are unequalled.  You followed new, and often changing, protocols to attend school, while continuing to participate in various extracurricular activities and athletics. You did all of this, and yet you still maintained an unparalleled positivity.

Let this be a lesson for your life. For there will be circumstances in your life that you will have no control over but will affect you just the same. It is my deep hope that in the years to come, when you look back to your high school experience, you will remember that you prospered throughout the challenge of our lifetime.

To the Parents and Family Members of the Class of 2021 - Thank you for your partnership and support this school year. The senior year for our children is traditionally looked upon as a celebration of 13 years of a student’s academic career. It did not go unnoticed that this year has also had a dramatic impact on you as parents. I cannot thank you enough for your persistent positivity and guidance that allowed your student to succeed this school year in spite of a pandemic.

I have never been more proud of a group of students than I am of the Class of 2021.

Remember - you will forever be a Hurricane! Congratulations and Best Wishes!

Dr. Theodore Caleris
