Well, it’s one week away.  I’m so proud of you guys.  You worked hard for it.  Not one of you was *given* the grade.  There were no gifts.  All of your hard work has finally paid off.

  4. i feel happy finally going on to high school && a little nervous, too. but i think i’ll be okay. this year was pretty stressful as i had to study hard in my other school, only to find that i’d be moving && starting ,almost, all over again. although, i’m proud of myself that i made it, all on my own. the only thing hindering my ultimate happiness in graduting, are my other friends who will no be with me on the stage. also, that i have to spend four years of my life in one school. well, anyways, good luck ms. vermeulen in moving to another subject for teaching. && thanks for taking the time to teach me all the things i needed to know to gradutate.

  9. i cant wait till we are out of here.

    – i think the hardest final was the math final.

    – i dont really remember the hardest thing in 8th grade.

    -my parents are coming and so is my friend and her parents which are like a second family to me.

    i cant wait till graduation. WERE GRADUATING FINALLY!

  10. I am soo glad that graduation is almost here because the closer we get to graduation the closer we get to the end of school. If I had stayed at my other school I would have been out june 1st. I think the hardest final for me was the social studies. Social studies has always been the hardest for me. For graduation it depends how many people we can bring. but I am going to bring my family and maybe some friends. I am so nervous to start high school because it isn’t the same as junior high. Congratulations to the class of 2007 !!!!!!!

  11. man i dont no i came to dis school with a 3.7 gpa on ma first progress report i had all f and then i brought all ma grades up to at least a D+ i get so close work so hard then to not be able to graduate cuz of a reading profincency man i could have stayed in sac for this or even stayed in oakland. i dont no maby i dont see the same way the disrict sees it or the way the tachers see but i still think that ive earned the right to graduate

  15. i am really happy that some people are graduating
    so we will have a good time in great america.

  16. im kinda nervous about graduation, but 4 some strange reason im more excited about great america!…….even though i’ve been there a million times but it’s gonna be really cool to spend our last days together at a very fun place and away from school!!! None of my finals were that hard because i studied like crazy for history and math has always been “my thing”…LA was easy and science was fun. The hardest thing about eighth grade is grades…im trying to graduate with a 4.0 and im not for sure what my final grades are yet. So far i have about 10 family members wanting to come to gradation but only 5 or 6 are for sure!! Goog luck to everybody( graduates)

    The hardest Final was actually Language Arts, which was pretty easy. all the finals are easy.

    The hardest thing about 8th grade is… trying to stay out of trouble. i’ve only gotten 1 DAR

    My Mom, Grandma, Grandpa, other set of grandparents, and maybe my Aunt and Uncle. I don’t know if my dad is coming…

  29. Well first of all I want to say congrates to everyone who is GRADUATING…….. Im super dooper excited to go to Great America…. Also want to say good job to everyone who is graduating because the school year was really hard!!!! Good job to everyone who is walking down the walk way thing….:)…..Congradulations to the class of 2007!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!!!!

  30. yes graduation i cant wait. my family is coming. my hardest final was probably history.

  31. Yes im graduating it came to me as no surprise but the greatthing is that my two closest friends made it mari and sheriese im so proud of them! The hardest final for me was your magazine i didnt get it and it kept me up for days on end but the easiest part of 8th grade was loving my teachers, you cant enjoy school if your teachers dont enjoy you.ohhh yea my graduation people, my parents are coming along with my aunt and my siblings along with other family memebers and maybe some of my older friends from sierra

  32. yay its almost grad day and i cant wait till we go to graduation and its gonna be so fun!!! every thing went smoothely and i think the only problrm for me was the weather we had last week.. man it was hot.. the final wasnt that hard and it was like takeing a regular test to me and i didnt stress out at all.. and yay we r so close to the end of the school year!! im so happy!! and every time someone says great america i get extremly excited to go… I really cant wait!! i wish this week would go by super fast…&& I think that some of my relitaves are commeing and my friend from B.E. thats gonna come and yeah its gonna be fun.. im a bit nervous for graduation but at least im gonna be there…

  33. i cant believe we are so close to graduation! im so psyched..the hardest final was the math one. hmmm. hardest part of 8thh grade? i would have to sayy the last month because everyone else is getting out of school and we still have a WHOLE MONTH! i cant believe the school year is basically over. :[ im excited/nervous for high school. GO T-WOLVES! :]
    word of advice to the 7thh graders: take care of the school nextt year && set a good example. good luckk.

  34. I can’t believe I’m graduating! Of course my parents are coming, and my two sisters and brother, and my grandparents. It’s just too bad I can’t bring my whole family.

  35. I cant wait for graduation day or great america Im so happy I actually made it me with the help of my parents for always taking me to the store for my projects they are so proud of me I hope I got all A’s my dad said every A i get is 20 bucks wooooooooooohoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;)

  36. this year went by so fast i cant believe it. it is so hard t believe that we are gradating in just days. congrats to the graduating class of 2007 weve worked hard to get this far. it is going to be so much fun.

  37. I cant believe it!!!! Im graduating!!! But only a couple of more days until we graduate and go to Great America!!! I was so worried that I wouldnt be able to walk I was about to cry! But Im glad its over with and that the school year is almost ovger. The only thing i hate about ending a school year its that I wont be able to see alot of my friends and things are going to change, and im not a big fan on changing. But anyways here are my answers to the questions:
    1)My hardest final…hmmm…I would have to say none of them because they were all pretty easy and I thought they were going to be harder. The only thing was i worried about the math one the most because math isnt my best subject.
    2)Well i would have to say that the hardest thing in eigth grade was making sure that I turned in all the homework and that all my projects were turned in on time. We also had a million things to do and it stressed me out but i made it through.
    3)Im taking my mom and dad, and my best friend Kim from Brock Elliott. I wanted my brother, who lives in Texas, to come down for my graduation but he couldn’t T_T. I was sad but then i got over it because he just got out of high school and he has alot of things to take care but im just glad that he is going to come over during the summer ^^.

  38. AM S000 HAPPy iM GRADUAtiNg!…iH WAUH S000 MUCH PRESSURE THiS yEAR tHEN N 7tH GRADE!
