The night of Graduation

Good afternoon my magnificent 8th graders, 

Hope you and your family are having a nice Sunday/Father's Day!

Tomorrow is a big day for each of you! It's hard to believe that it has arrived. All your hard work in preparation for the day will so be worth it. I have shared with you the order for tifillot tomorrow via your KSA emails. Take a minute to review it, please. 

When we were at Friendly's on Friday, I took a few moments to look around at each of you and admired just how much you have grown. Yes, it is true that there is a huge transformation the summer before 8th grade, and there is also tremendous growth during the year. Each of you has grown physically, emotionally, and intellectually. You are ready to move on, despite your feelings (of various degrees) of not wanting to leave and my feelings of not wanting you to go. And you will be fine.

So what should you do tonight? Read your speeches out loud 1-2 times. Make sure you have your outfits picked out for both the morning and evening. Review with your parents when you need to be at school for both the morning and evening. And, if you have any questions, I'm just an email away.

Remember, you are ready. Tomorrow is going to be awesome!!!
