To all of the eighth graders and teachers who want to listen, here is a story from my point of view about our last year at South Middle School.
This year was a blast. I have had so much fun with all of you. I am sorry if I do not know you. I bet that people who I did not know were really sweet and nice. For the people I knew, my girl Sheriddan R and my best friends, Tylor H, Chelsea Martin, Chelsea Moore, Brittany Banta, and my cousin, Lauren Bynum, I will miss you.
And how could I ever forget the guys?
I know a lot of you have been there for me and that is why I am writing this goodbye letter. Most of all, I want to thank Emily H, Breezy L., and Sheriddan. You girls have been the ones who I could talk to no matter what. The main reason I am writing this note is not just to say goodbye but to say thank you to all of you that I have said and others like Alex N, Danielle K., Arlisa A., and Vone' Britt.
I want to thank you because not only have you helped me with my homework or other things, you have also helped me through so many of my biggest problems from home.
Not only do I want to say goodbye to all of my friends, but also to my teachers.
-Mrs. Yonkers, even though we had some problems at first, I'm really glad that you had thought I could hit higher than a high C.
-Mrs. Powell- I loved your class; it was so cool. It stinks that I have to leave it.
-Mr. Biggers- I don't even have words to say how much I want to thank you for everything and even the personal advice that you have given me.
-Miss Medlock- I want to thank you for showing me how to open up when I read poetry and thanks for helping me with everything.
-Mr. Wolf- Thanks for letting me have a blast in your class; maybe I'll see you when I come back to visit.
-Coach Burr- Thank you for getting me back into shape. I had some awesome times in your class.
-Mr. Wallace- I had so much fun in your class. It was unbelievable. My favorite activity was when we boiled the pennies and then turned them into different colors.
-Mr. Turner- I want to thank you for showing me how to open up when I write my papers. You have also taught me to have a voice when I write papers, even my prompts. So thank you and I have had a blast.
And last, but not least, I would like to say goodbye to one of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Doerr. Mrs. Doerr, I would like to tell you that you have helped me so much with my math. You have showed me things in math that I have never heard of before. I had a few troubles,but other than that, I had a great time.
The one I owe the most would have to be Mr. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell, I really hope that you are reading this. You have let me get away with some things in my years here at South Middle School. Thank you for giving me the chance to have fun at school.
So here is my goodbye letter to everyone that I know at South Middle School. It has been an experience that I will never forget. So thank you for everything everybody. I will miss you all so very much. Maybe I will see you in the future, so have a great year and s great summer and don't forget that I will miss each one of you very much.
Good luck and goodbye.
