Dear Family and Friends,


   Geoffrey will be graduating from Oaks Christian High School in June. 


One of the most significant events of his senior year will be a senior retreat. As part of the retreat the parents are asked to write letters to their graduating senior. The school has also asked us to extend this letter writing opportunity to any extended family and friends who have played a significant role in Geoffrey‘s  life up to this point.


These letters will be given to the seniors during the senior retreat in March; they will have private quite time to read all the letters they receive. This is the most impactful and meaningful time of the entire retreat. These letters are supposed to be kept a secret from the seniors. Although it is an 8 year tradition at Oaks, we still want to do our best to keep it a surprise.


It would mean a great deal to our family and even more to Geoffrey, if everyone receiving this email would participate in this process.


The letters can be about whatever you want. Let me give you a few suggestions to help get you started.


  • Encourage him
  • Thank him for being a part of your life
  • Challenge him
  • Remind him of his importance and value to you
  • Reminisce about old times 
  • Plans for his future
  • How proud you are of him
  •                   His accomplishments
  • Praying for God’s plan for his life.
  • How much you love him


Please don’t try to cover all of the above in your letter. Just pick out what is important to you and what you think would be meaningful to Geoffrey. Geoffrey will value your letter simply because you took time to write it to him.


Now the deadline part. You can email your letter to me and I will put it in a sealed envelope for you. Or, you can mail it to me and I will be sure it gets to the school.


We must have the letters in our hands no later than February 18th. If you are going to mail your letter, please plan accordingly.


Our home address is:

1525 N. Agusta Ave.

Camarillo, Ca 93010


If you have questions, please feel free to call me anytime on my call at 805 914 8174.


We love all of you and feel so grateful and blessed for the love and support you have shown us and Geoffrey over the last 17 years.


Thank you,

Laurie and Steve
