I have been going to school since I was four years old and, that means that I have been attending school twenty to twenty two years, including kindergarten, middle school, high school and now college. As every student, I had my ups and downs in school; I had some failures and some successes. One of the failures that affected me the most and that I will always remember was the time that I was in high school during my junior year. I failed almost all my classes and, I only passed two classes and with a C. In the other hand I had some really good success. The most recent one and the one that I am still happy about is getting my Family Development Credential. We learn from our mistakes and also from our successes, these two times in my life
On February 11th, 2016 I attended the Houston Independent School District’s (HISD) school board meeting. I received a first-hand experience of how educational decisions are made and I also witnessed all the intricacies of the process. An article entitled Understanding Your School Board states that “school boards are entrusted by the public to translate the needs of students into policies, plans, and goals that will be supported by the community” (www.tasb.org). In other words, the board and its members are responsible for making and enforcing essential decisions for the school district. They are ultimately a strong determining factor for their students’ academic success.
Dear administrators, teachers, parents, beloved friends, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 8th grade graduation. It’s a pleasure to be standing in front of you today on this beautiful day to express the happiness we all feel.
June 14th, 2014, was a memorable day filled with joyous smiles, caps and gowns, and the reaching of a major milestone. Occurring over a year ago, my high school graduation took place on that day, and because of my family, it is a very special day in my life.
For those of you who are terrified of going into Junior High...don’t be. It’ll be a breeze, at least for most of you. Just remember that you have help all around you whether it’s a teacher a classmate or a even your parents. I can remember a time when I was in Elementary School and I was afraid to transfer into Jr. High. Well now I’m afraid to go into High School. That’s why I’m here to help you through your fear. Some of the most important things in Jr. High is your academics, your personal responsibility, and your social life.
Hi, Mrs. Anderson! It's Tabbi and I was wondering about the eighth grade graduation video. Every year Mrs. James made a video that included baby pictures and other pictures from there time at Norwood. So, with Mrs. James no longer at Norwood will the graduating class still get a video? If no one is making a video who could I get in contact with to see if I could make the video. I would love to volunteer my time to make a video they will enjoy for many years to come.
Many individuals believe that attending college directly after high school is a life changing experience This stance can hold true for many reasons regarding the positive aspects for the completion of a college degree. Students should attend college directly after high school because they are more experienced and have great opportunities and benefits rather than waiting to go later on in life.
Thank you so much for the offer, but I had foreseen the results and accepted the outcome. The news definitely was still very disheartening, especially after all my time and dedication to Relay this past year.
I would like to thank everybody attending this afternoon, and indeed, it's a very special afternoon. Everybody here has made such a great impact to each of these proud graduates sitting here, including myself. Each one of you present today in this afternoon will share this momentous occasion to bear witness to this crucial point in our lives.
Good afternoon parents, teachers, and most importantly classmates. It has been one long ride and I’m proud to say that we finally made it. This night is about all those late nights we stayed up studying or finishing a speech the night before even if we had a whole month to do it to all the great times we had hanging out with our friends at lunch and outside of school. Sadly all good things have to come to an end. However, this day shouldn’t just be about reminiscing over what we are leaving behind but looking forward to what life has to give to us, many of you will go on to live prosperous lives and leave Yucaipa but unfortunately that isn't the case for all of us. I would however like to give a shout out to my family for always supporting me when I felt like giving up on school, everything I do is for them, and lastly I would like to give a thanks to my friends and girlfriend for all the crazy stories we have together. I would like to share a few of those stories if you guys don’t mind.
Good evening and welcome teachers, parents, family members, guests and my fellow graduates. Dr. Seuss once said “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” Today we are gathered here to celebrate the final chapter of our elementary school book. We are graduating with the knowledge that we have successfully concluded an important step in our lives and that we are about to embark on a new challenge. This change is inevitable, but what is not inevitable is how we choose to go about it. We will soon say farewell to some of our closest friends, teachers, principals, and the overall feeling of walking the halls at Fatima. Personally I’ve always loathed denouement. It’s a frightening feeling not knowing what’s next, but its unavoidable, it’s a part of life.
As we grow up and finish school we typically forget a lot of people along the way. We grow away from friends, new people move in, others move away, our interests change, and we are separated into more specific classes, but there is one exception, our elementary school teachers. Our elementary school teachers are some of the most influential people in our lives. They are some of the first people our parents leave us with when they go to work. As we enter elementary school, we may cry as our parents leave us and we often feel abandoned in a new place. That feeling soon changes when we are greeted by the welcoming, cheerful face of our first teacher. This is why I want to become an elementary teacher. I want to make an impact on the lives of children from the very beginning.
Who here has attended Vaughn since elementary school? Do you remember how every morning on student would lead the pledge of allegiance to the entire school. Well, I was that kid once - I didn 't want to do it, but my class nominated me so I have no choice. That day, I came late to school that day, and I didn 't even eat breakfast; I just ran through the cafeteria and went into a full-on Sprint toward the stage. There were already the other two kids holding the flag of the United States when I got on the stage and Mr. Palma hands me the mic and says, “ Don 't be nervous.” (As if that is really going to calm me down.) I walk up to the center of the stage and say, “ Put your right hand over your heart,” and everyone proceeds to do so. My
Delivering a commencement address is a great responsibility; or so I thought until I cast my mind back to my own graduation. The commencement speaker that day was the distinguished British philosopher Baroness Mary Warnock. Reflecting on her speech has helped me enormously in writing this one, because it turns out that I can’t remember a single word she said. This liberating discovery enables me to proceed without any fear that I might inadvertently influence you to abandon promising careers in business, the law or politics for the giddy delights of becoming a gay wizard.
