8th Grade Ending

Middle school is coming to a close for me. In just 13 days, I will never attend another middle school. As hard as these past few years have been, and as much as I have wanted to leave them behind, I can’t help but miss some of the memories already. I have had some amazing teachers that have changed my life forever, and that I know my mom is thankful for too. As I slowly work my way through 3 years of memories, things just come into my mind, that I will never forget.
