8th Grade Graduation Speach
Julianne Milani
May 31, 2012
Period 2
Graduation
In 5th grade I never wanted to leave Wolcott. I thought middle school was just filled with mean teachers, more work, and mean kids. I guess I was just stereotyping because that’s not at all what it had turned out to be. When I first walked through those doors to Sedgwick I was feeling a whole mix of emotions like happy, scared and excited. In 6th grade everyone still had their groups they hung out with in elementary school and we barely talked to kids we didn’t know. Top of The Sixes was a great way to meet new friends. We all got along really well and we enjoyed working with Mrs. Lotstein and it was so much fun! I remember 6th grade like it was yesterday. One last memory I had in 6th grade is when we were doing that huge research project for Mr. Celio and Charlotte and I were in the Mexico group. The night we were showcasing our project I remember that me and Charlotte were doing the dance we made up with our maracas and she accidentally flung some icing from the cake onto Mrs. Martinelli. 7th grade was a super fun year. That’s when everyone really started becoming friends with other people and soon we all became really close like one huge family. Even the relationships between the students and the teachers were close. One teacher that really helped a lot of people find their talents was Mr. Tracey. When he did Hairspray and Grease I bet there was a lot of people who participated, and they never would have been comfortable getting on that stage in front of all those people and showing off their talents without him. Then 8th grade comes along, our last year at Sedgwick. It was strange at first with all of our friends from the year before being at Conard and it didn’t feel right. Eventually we got used to it though and by this point we have all had our up’s and down’s. There has been happy moments and sad moments but overall it has been an awesome middle school career for most of us. As much as we say we

    We would work on little projects and go on field trips, so by the time I could go to school I had already experienced a lot. I knew how to read and write very well. I remember my first grade teacher, Mrs. Woods, the most. She always went out of her way to teach us new things, and would never tier of answering questions; I was one of those kids who had a million. Mrs. Woods started to notice how much I liked to write. During playtime, I would sit at the table and write short stories and "roses are red, violets are blue" poems. She started giving me individual writing projects to take home for the weekend. I loved it! I would get so excited that I would start working on it as soon as I got home.…

    Middle school was both exciting and frightening. It was exciting because I was able to switch classes and it made me feel older, however it was frightening because I had to impress more than one teacher and adjust to their teaching methods. The first day of middle school was different because that year my father could not see me off to school. My father died unexpectedly a few weeks before my first day of middle school which only added to the stress. Overall my first day was still pretty exciting because I knew I was going to meet new people. I was excited to see some of my old friends in the same class with me. I thought the work was going to harder since I was older, but it was not much different from elementary.…

    In first grade, it was my first year in public school so I didn’t have as much friends as the the people that were in kindergarten last year. When I walked into the room, both of my parents on each of my side they introduced to my teacher then I sat in the empty seat. The person assigned to sit next was a girl named Chloe. At first sight, I mesmerized by the amount of silly bands she had. At that moment I knew I had to be her friend.…

    Freshman year of high school was an exciting and nerve wrecking time. The first week of school I stuck close to my friend from middle school. We had hung out over the summer nonstop and were extremely close. That first week we did not see each other much during the school day. All our classes seemed to be different except our lunch periods. This friend was someone I trusted and let influence me, for better or worse.…

    Middle school was really weird time for me. It seemed like it was the most dramatic / drama filled. Our school at St. Peters was messed up, anything that could happen did. I've had teacher come up to me and ask for answers to what happened. Students doing bad things and etc. Also middle school to me was so fun, because people who I like got in trouble because of me. If you weren't my friend at St. Peters you better hope that you weren't mean to me, because if you were the teachers would find out what you did and they get in trouble.…

    It’s a bler, trying to look back on when I was a preschooler, so first grade was a mess. First grade is a life changer. Going to Tri-Point in Piper City not even for a full year. Tri-Point is a small old school just like ROWVA. I remember changing schools because my parents got a divorce. We moved to Peoria and lived there with my mom's parents. I got transferred to a Catholic school. Every Wednesday the whole place went to church right across the street. It was the worst thing ever sitting in the old creepy church listening the Father talk about only “God” knows what. My teacher's name was Mrs. Heartstick, no I did not make the name up. She grossed me out. He hands very dry and cracked, they looked like an old man's hands who had worked his whole…

    Spenser and I were always active and out doing anything and everything we could think of. Everything from sports to catching cray-fish in the little creek in his back yard. We went together like chips and dip. Our best memories would have to be fishing. We would fish all the time. While we were fishing we could share anything. We could talk all day and fish and no matter how many times we did, it never got old. In high school we added a new friend to the circle; Stephen. Stephen was just like us in every way. He fit in perfectly.…

    Hi, I am just your average student that is now in 8th grade. I know it’s a big transition from the underdogs to the middle level because you might think that you won’t be with your friends or the teachers will be mean. Let me clear your mind, you always think of the negative when you experience change but it’s not so difficult. Yes some teachers can be meaner than others and some teachers might not like you as much but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the teachers like you or make them see that you are a good student. 7th grade is the best year in middle school because you aren’t starting a new school and your aren’t just about to live for high school. 7th grade is the year that you don’t have to worry so much about your future…

    Kindergarden was one of my most favorite years. I had the nicest teacher, Mrs. Tocheck. She would always play games with us like hiding and seek in the dark. Kendrick and I would always hide together and Mrs. Tocheck would never find us until she said she gave up and we would come out of hiding. Every day we would have stations set up during free time. There would be a dollhouse, a painting area, and a toy area. I would always go and paint pumpkins in October and bring them home to decorate the house. One time Kendrick, Ethan, and I made a huge fish made out of about ten pages of…

    Middle school was an adventure of awkwardly dressing and thinking you are cooler than you actually are. I remember growing up hearing the horror stories of that age and how hard seventh grade was compared to everything we have ever faced before. Seventh grade was the glory year. I hated my science teacher with a passion due to her non caring attitude, but I loved my English teacher. The best part of the entire year, was lunch.…
