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? 

Ask your English Language Arts teacher for assistance
