Today we got off to a great start! It was so nice to see your familiar faces and hear about your summer. While it was nice getting caught up, we also need to keep our eye on the prize, “MOVING ON UP!” As 8th graders you have a big year ahead of you..your last year in middle school! It can be a challenge as you prepare for state tests (ELA, Math & SCIENCE!), you may also be involved in sports and/or clubs, you also have to make time for your family and friends and other responsibilities….all while needing to focus on your daily academics. It can be a lot, I know! However, we, your teachers and support staff are all here to help. You could reach out to literally anyone and we will help guide you, help you build a foundation to become young adults. No, it’s not going to be easy…there will be peaks and valleys, but you learn from mistakes, you learn to seek and accept help, speak up for yourself, support yourself. LIVE. It starts here, it starts now, because we are MOVING ON UP!
To get you started here are some of the class resources that were handed out today. If you need a Spanish or Creole version please email me and I will get one to you.
Wishing you the best year yet!
