Eighth grade at Spring View has been amazing and I have loved it. I had great teachers and learned so much, plus laughed a lot. I was sad to leave that school, but I am so excited to go to high school!
Promotion was awesome because I got to give the closing speech, which I had to audition for in front of my classmates and my four core teachers. This was a huge deal for me because it means that my teachers actually liked me. Plus, I love public speaking. I was super nervous to give the speech at promotion because my entire academy of about 140 people and their whole families would be watching me. I practiced A LOT to the point where I practically memorized it. Doing over and over in my mirror helped a lot and then I had confidence in myself to do it. When it came to the day I presented it flawlessly and everyone was clapping loudly. My grandpa even gave me a standing ovation.
It was a pretty exciting day for me; I gave a speech and it was last moments at Spring View Middle School. I got a couple awards, too, for my hard work and leadership. I am pumped for high school and can’t wait to see what happens because I know that Spring View had prepared me for it.
