And Then It Was Over: My Last Few Weeks of Middle School!

Thanks for coming back for this month’s blog post! This month was filled with a lot of great times while wrapping up the school year. From getting ready for high school to enjoying my last year of middle school, this school year was quite a ride! Without further ado, let’s get right into my favorite month of the year--June!


Early this month, I had the opportunity to perform at my violin recital, which was great! I played Concerto in G Minor from the Suzuki Books, with piano accompaniment. After the recital, we got a lot of snacks and food that I enjoyed:)



I also recently submitted my silver award project. The Girl Scout Silver award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn and the second highest award a Girl Scout can earn. For my silver award, I created a welcome packet to help incoming sixth graders assimilate into middle school life better. At the Wattles Fifth Grade Graduation, I was honored by Mrs. Brasington, the principal, for my welcome packet. I am pictured with Mrs. Garver, my fifth grade teacher, who helped a lot with this project, in the second picture of the gallery. Also, I am pictured with Mrs. Brasington in the third picture of the gallery. This welcome packet was distributed to the fifth graders at their graduation for them to look at before they enter middle school!



One of the most enjoyable parts of June was the eighth grade party that the parents put together for the eighth graders. My friends and I had a great time enjoying our last few hours together before graduation. We got to eat delicious food, get our face painted, and take pictures at the photo booth!

The next day was middle school graduation, where we went through many rehearsals to make sure graduation would go well. Baker is the only school in the Troy School District where its students feed into different high schools at a wide degree--Athens, Troy High, or IA East. That’s why our graduation is different from other middle schools, because we know that we won’t be spending the next four years with the classmates we have been with since kindergarten. After getting presented with our certificates and other awards, I took pictures with my other classmates as we said goodbye to each other.

Well, that was sort of a lie, because I ended up putting my birthday party on the day after graduation, so that was not the last time I got to see them. It was great to celebrate my birthday with my closest friends from middle school!



That’s it for this month’s blog post! Thanks for reading and I hope to see you back here for next month’s post!
