Annie’s Graduation Speech

Categories: General Knowledge Fund

Please take a moment and read through Annie’s remarks, which she gave during our Recognition Ceremony in May.  Each year, our Adolescent Community (Junior High) graduates are asked to give a short speech during the Recognition Ceremony.  Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing their words. 

“I came to the school for my last year of Kindergarten, and am now graduating from the Junior High.  The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the school is the teachers and the opportunities we are given.  I fondly remember exploring kelp forests and coral reefs, traveling through the city, and telling ghosts stories around a campfire.  I also remember the not-as-great times such as setting off the fire alarm when pan-frying chicken, and an unfortunate incident involving plastic wrap and quartered potatoes, and forgetting the cheese for mac-and-cheese.

These are just some of the things I will remember for the rest of my life, and the lessons I have learned from attending the school have made me into who I am today.  I just want to thank my parents for sending my to an amazing school, and all of my teachers for always being there to help me and for supporting each and every student who attends this school.

Though I am sad to leave, I know that everything I have done here has prepared me for the future, and now I feel I can face that future with confidence knowing that I will always have friends in the students and the teachers here at Wheaton Montessori.”
