In only a couple of weeks, Chippewa’s eighth graders will be leaving the school’s doors and entering a new milestone in our lives. We will enter our final stage of mandatory education, and as we leave the school once and for all and are no longer considered Chippewa’s students, a solemn atmosphere will cloud over our heads while still jubilant about what the future will serve us on a golden plate.
The great thing about Maine West (and Maine East) is the many different opportunities the high school presents to us, and I’m willing to spend my time there starting out with athletics and applying to their newspaper (hopefully they accept me!), along with finding many new friends and creating more memories, both good and bad.
As I continue through life, I would remember this school as a stepping stone for a higher education, in which children thirsty for knowledge enroll and get educated by qualified teachers who were once in our positions. I would remember the amazing teachers who taught me and fellow classmates at Chippewa Middle School, and it would be a pleasant memory to remember the good times.
But for now, I’m excited to open more doors as I progress through life.
