Come and get your love

To those who see beauty in the world- I commend you.

Clare Demer- you have the voice of an angel, and it lifts me to heaven.



Will you be nick’s valentine?

<3 Vigg


To: Susan Keyl

Can I help you with that tire? Best of luck this week.


1) dear you.

do you know me?

I think you do

2) We walk often in my dreams

treading soft over clouds and

quick through sand

3) sometimes we

even hold


4) Our words fall like rain

some we can catch and

others flow by

5) Stars sing us secrets

their quiet voices

deafen all doubts

6) colors bleed through the years

leaving me

with only a faded memory

Ms. Balzer:

You will eventually forget me but I will never forget what happened in your class.


To: Liana Yee,

El trueno con su chispa,

Viajando bajo la oscuridad, corriendo,

Bajo las lagrimas y gritas, bailando,

La luz dando linda vista,

Brillando lo que se oculta,

Un rio surgiendo por la montaña,

Liso como la seda callendo de tu cabeza,

Las nubes finas besando la montaña,

El sol subiendo con los labios,

El toce fino de cada madrugada,

Cada flor mirando todos nuestros sueños,

El viento fiesco rosando,

Por la piel en mi cuello y cara,

El trueno con su chispa bailando.


To the first person for whom I fell “head over heels”:

You don’t even know. Your lessons are now a part of who I am. There are some birthday cards that one keeps for a lifetime, to take out and look at when one is 90. Nothing but good memories.


Due to my mother having been seriously ill & hospitalized, this has been the most difficult month of my life. However, after having missed three weeks of work, I was welcomed back to UHS with such compassion and understanding that something good has come of the bad. I would like to thank everyone at UHS for making what could have been a stressful return to school into a happy homecoming.

-Ms. Glass


Aida- you could cheer anyone up. Thanks for being a ray of sunshine.


Katherine R.

You might be the only one at UHS that knows a dance called the Blackbird. That’s pretty cool.


To Carolina Baker, my favorite Republican/ wannabe Celtic woman ever. I hope you have a great day!

Love, Allyson

To: Tania



Dear Tomas Montez,




Laura Marie Van Slyke,

It is a supreme disappointment that I have only just started to get to know you. Apparently we are secretly the same person, or maybe we knew each other in a previous life. Hooray for New Year’s resolutions, as I believe that is where it all started. May the following weeks be filled with antique stores, secret gardens, plenty of good music, and revelations in the sky. I think I will always put lemon on my avocadoes now.


To: Allyson Yoder

You’re my favorite sister of all, and I’m really going to miss you next year! I’m sorry you’ll have to visit me in Indiana, and not North Carolina.

Yazeed Loonat,

Little mouth, GO!



Dr. Coffey,

Thanks for encouraging us to take time for what really matters. I promise I’ll return your books before I leave UHS.

To Dominic Badalamenti

I love you so much,

I’ll wait for as long

As it takes.


Kayla West


Dear Jared:

Thanks for showing an interest in my… interests

<3 P


Oh Josh,

What makes you so wonderful? The rest of us are struck dumb at your magnificence.


Dear Celia A.,

You are my favorite. Do I have to use words? A rainbow, a thunderstorm, or the view from a mountaintop would do a much better job at explaining how much you mean to me.

Eight hours will not break us apart next year. <3 <3 <3


Laura Van Slyke,

Without you, I’d be in a ditch on the side of the road! Or “on the other side of the door”… Sans toi, les émotions d’aujourd’hui ne serait rien que la peau morte d’hier. I love you I love you I love you.

<3 Celia

Roses are red, & sometimes they’re thorny…

When I see you, I get…


I know what you were thinking.

Zack Kennedy-

You’re my WD for life!




Emma W. (Woodhouse?)

Your wit never ceases to dazzle me. It is an immense priveledge to share in the company of your eminence. Let’s go contra dancing.



You give me the will to live, you are the reason I get up in the morning. Be mine, forever, my heart is yours.



Vanessa Martinez

I will be yours forever and ever. My life would definitely suck without you!

I <3 you!

Laura- I haven’t known how to tell you, but I’m in love with you. I figured this was the right way.

Happy Valentine’s Day!


Mia, Baby grrrrl, you are just so fine. I can’t help but love you. Let’s go celebrate our love! Happy Valentine’s Day!



You are alright I guess. Happy Valentine’s Day, sort of. We kind of like your bangs too.

Mia & Laura


I’ve seen you sitting in the Icecats stadium. I think you’re mad cute. Let’s hang out after a game or something.



Your ginger complexion drives us crazy! URAQT.

Mia and Laura


We are secretly in love with you.

2 anonymous people

Communists are red;

You casualties are blue.

Freshly baked baguettes are hot and so are you!


<3 France


Not even the entire state of Illinois could keep us apart next year.

Stay beautiful!



Mallory Hiedeman,

It makes me secretly happy when people mistake us as sisters because I do believe we were separated at birth. I love you so much it’s ridiculous. As is the back of yo head. Gum would be perfection. You are perfection. Thanks for being a fantastic best friend. Happy Valentine’s Day!


“All you need is love.”


You know I need you like a heart beat!


Dear Sophia,

Your smile, or the hope, the thought of it,

Makes in my mind such pause and abrupt ease

As when the highway bridge gates fall.

This is a message to anyone who has ever resented Valentine’s day.

I am one of you. Every year when this day comes around, I see the clouds of red and pink as icons of commercial satisfaction. This year, I want it to be different.

I may not have a “significant other,” but what would that change? This Sunday, I want to see the Love all around me, because only my cynicism can make it disappear. I will spend Valentine’s day amongst green, yellow, blue, and purple. I think Hearts can be found in millions of places beyond cards and balloons.

You are loved.

Dear Beatrice,

You are so beautiful & Mrs. Balzer-ish. I love our long talks about life & boys. You’re amazing.

<3 L

To: Tonatiuh Pilli From: Anonymous

Roses are red, violets are blue, this is so cliché…unlike you.

Could there be an “us?” People say we’d be fine. So let’s find out. Let’s go somewhere sometime. Who am I, you ask? Your friend knows the clue. And I know that I would just like to keep you. So go on, ask him- you know you want to. Take hold of the mystery, Tonatiuh. 🙂

Lizzie Ruiz

You make me happy when skies are gray!


Darling Christina Hyde,

You are the best. I don’t know how I would have survived middle school slash life in general without you by my side to three-way-bomb a certain someone or spend the super bowl with. Every moment I spend with you is a new adventure. I love you and that’s a fact.

Are you ready for my Basilisk to enter your Chamber of Secrets?

<3 France


I heart you!

Thanks for the memories.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Lissette Ruiz

I Love You CF!

Dear Forrest from Hellogoodbye,

Marry me?

Evan Keyes

You are so cute!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Allegra Amend is the guacamole to my tortilla chips.

Love, Allyson


Rachey Poo,

Roses are red

Violets are blue

Sugar is sweet

We’re seniors foo!

To Nic Varela—

I love you Nicholas!

You’re my brotha from anotha motha J

Sarah Barah,

You are the strongest person I know and I love you so much. You keep me sane from the crazy UHS atmosphere.

<3 Leanne

Mia K. Spiri

Dear Mia,

You are the Lindsay Bluth Fünke to my Tobias Fünke. I would join the Blue Man Group for your love. Hopefully someday we’ll be like Lucille and George Bluth. Or Lucille and Buster Bluth.



To: Victor

From: Victor

Hi, this is Emeric

-Love Reed


Dearest Katie,

My love burns for you with a fiery passion equal to a thousand suns. I can’t wait for our trip to Arkansas. Be mine forever, president of the Pretty Committee!



I wanna be your 1st derivative…

So I can be tangent to your curves.

<3 France

Emma Wohl,

You are the reason for the teardrops on my guitar. But for the record, if you are ever stranded with a flat tire again, I’ll come get you. I’ll be the Kellie Pickler to your T. Swift!


Dear Rachel,

You are a lovely lovely friend! I am so glad we met each other freshman year and that my first impression didn’t stick with you forever. You make my life brighter.

Love, Katie

If love were cow blood,

I’d be a slaughterhouse,


If love were goat blood,

I’d be chupacabra.

<3 France

Love I Vigg You!

Dear Liz,

It has been a long time since we first started being best friends. I knew from the moment I saw your beautiful fiery hair that we were destined to be. You always except my strange thoughts and behavior, and I will always love you!

Love, Katie

Joshua A. Yoder,

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:

No, there’s too many.

Dear Primavera Class,

I love you guys so much! Thank you for being my family away from home. Happy Valentine’s day

Love, Carolina

Dear Lauran,

Soul mates since BOOST. The Format. Moon tans. That is all I need to say.

Your Secret Admirers

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Dearest Beatrice,

You will never know how much I appriciate and admire you. It’s been you and me baby since freshman year when we would spend hours giggling in math center and drooling over SAT (and every other boy we could possibly think up code names for). You are a fantastic person and the only one I will ever trust with my hair before formals. Stay beautiful, stay classy, and always know that you are better than your average PLS (I would know!!). Love you forever.

– the other lord of the Lauratrice

Dear Eldon,

No matter what happens I will always care about you, you’ll always have a special place in my heart. But of course, it doesn’t need to be Valentine’s day for me to tell you that. Thank you for being there. I miss you.

Love always,

Well, you know who.

Stevie Musser,

I do miss you. We don’t hang out enough but I still love you!

Dear Josh,

Do you remember the book ‘Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, Honey is Sweet and Your Feet Really Stink’? I want you to know that I do not feel this way about you.

Love, Allyson

Yo dogs, I love you guys. Just everyone. A few names would be: Morgan, Andrew, Victor, Colin, Alyx, Felipe, Blaine, KT, Brendan, Joss, Josh, Matt, Tynan, Maryam, Helen, Emeric, Nicole, Andrea, Kaylee, Ryan, Marcus, Shawn, Alex, Thomas, Will, Jessica, Mackenzie, Chris, Gabe, Brooke, Jesse. Heart you guys.

Zz Mae,

I don’t even know if you’ll read this, but I want you to know I love you with all my heart!

Dear Katie,

You are so fabulous. Everyone loves you and I’m lucky to know exactly why. Thanks for being such a great friend.

<3 Leanne

Dear Mrs. Mcdonald, you’re super cute!

From a student.


Tidra, how are the twins?

Dear Nina Foushee,

You are the most caring, dedicated, interesting, brilliant, beautiful, strange and hilarious person I know. Seriously, without you my life would be but an avocado that lacks the lemon juice and salt it so obviously needs to be interesting. I love you. Let’s have a fantastic breakfast together Tuesday and a fantastic junior year.


  1. I’m going to miss this school.

  2. I love this school.

  3. David Herring says:

    Dear Admirers,
    You should know that I already have two excellent babysitters and am not currently looking for more. If, however, you would like to be considered in the future, you should submit copies of your Red Cross and CPR certifications; your personal best scores for Wii golf, bowling, and if applicable Wii Fit obstacle course on both the beginner and advanced levels; and your recipe for reduced fat gingerbread dinosaurs.
    Mr. Herring

  4. Mr. Herring you’re so silly!
    And you were right, I do regret not submitting something! ahaha. 🙂

  5. One of the many American People says:

    In the note regarding Yazeed Loonat, it should say “mouth” not “moth”

  6. Ms. Workiewycz says:

    Although the public media has moved on to yet another disaster, the people of Haiti are still, and will for a long time to come try to recover. Please donate a dollar to any member of the Red Cross Club. 100% of all monies (several hundreds of dollars, so far) go directly to the Southern Arizona Red Cross!
    In March book drive donations to World Care. Bring unwanted books (in good shape) to T-11.
    Ms. W.

  7. As a freshman (hence the name), I wasn’t entirely certain if this was something I wanted to get involved in…. but seeing how lighthearted most of this was, I regret not having the guts to put something into those delightfully corny boxes! Next year awaits….

  8. someboddyyyy says:

    can i add one?
    You’re better then the best
    I’m lucky just to linger in your light
    Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that’s right
    Completely unaware
    Nothing can compare to where you send me,
    Lets me know that it’s ok, yeah it’s ok
    And the moments where my good times start to fade

    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Ohh, you make me smile

    Even when you’re gone
    Somehow you come along
    Just like a flower poking the sidewalk crack and just like that
    You steal away the rain and just like that

    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Ohh, you make me smile

    Don’t know how I lived without you
    Cuz everytime that I get around you
    I see the best of me inside your eyes
    You make me smile
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild

    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Ohh, you make me smile
    <3 u know who

  9. I absolutely love this school.

  10. are you guys going to do this again this year?

  11. David Herring says:

    Yes, we are. Boxes are already in some of the English classrooms. We hope to have everything set up and start advertising this week.
