Just before graduation, we asked the Class of 2020 for the most important piece of advice they have for rising 8th Graders. Here is what they shared, in no particular order.
Work hard, but find the fun in your last year. Make the most of it!
Embrace challenges. If you think you should do something, do it. Have no regrets.
Cherish all your memories because you don't know when it will be taken away.
Do your high school essays sooner rather than later.
Don't give up even when it's hard, but also have fun.
Don’t stress too much. Eighth grade was definitely my most stressful year. Just keep in mind that everything will turn out ok in the end.
Just enjoy 8th grade and don't worry too much about high school.
Have a great 8th-grade year! Everything will work out, work hard, and finish the year strong.
Work hard, do good deeds, be nice, and have fun!
Enjoy your time with friends, but be ready to work hard.
Enjoy your last year. It's so cliche to say, but it really does go by fast.
