Dear incoming 8th grade students,
Welcome to the next chapter of your academic journey! I am incredibly excited to have you as an important part of our school community.
Eighth grade is a time of great change and growth.

You will be challenged academically, socially, and emotionally. But it is also a time of great opportunity. You will have the chance to explore your interests, make new friends, and prepare for high school and beyond.

I know that each one of you is talented and capable. I am confident that you will rise to the challenges of eighth grade and achieve great things.

I want you to set high goals for yourself, work hard, and persevere when you face challenges. I want to remind you to be yourself, to be kind to others, to have fun, and to embrace the incredible people and opportunities our learning community provides.
