I go to Gainsborough Public Elementary School. I am in Grade 8. I am known as the “King/Queen” of the school this year. I feel very grown up. I love being the oldest kid in the school. My friends and I are told that we are examples to the younger kids in the school. That means we need to be good. I remember looking up to the grade eight kids when I was younger. I remember thinking how big and wise they seemed to be. Now that I’m in grade eight, I hope that the younger kids see me as wise.
I want to be a music teacher or maybe a nurse. My school counsellor helps me plan for high school. I am nervous because I know I will not feel like the “King” anymore. Things will be so different. I am excited because I will be meeting so many new people!
I am looking forward to my graduation. I will wear a pink, silky dress. My shoes are a light pink, too. My date’s name is Chad. He is very nice. He is a good friend. I have known Chad since I was a little girl.
I know that my future will be a bright one. I will miss all of my friends but I know we will see each other again someday.
