8th GRADE PROMOTION INFORMATION
8th Grade Promotion Speech 2021
“Rise Up and Fly Away”
Our theme song for this year is “Fly Away” by Tones and I. In the song, she says,
No one knew how low I was feeling
I was scared to reach it all
Knowing I was here for a reason
But I was scared that if I tried, I’d fall
So where do I go now I’m in it?
I never thought it’d be like this
Dreaming all my life and I did it
Thought the grass was greener than then it is
Think about how this year with Distance Learning has been unexpected, difficult, and overwhelming for students. Think about how most students have risen to the challenges they faced and “flew away”, or succeeded. Think about how students will use the skills they learned and mastered through distance learning in their future. Distance learning was HARD for a lot of students, but you did it! You promoted! You succeeded! What will you do when you “fly away” from Fern Bacon?
