Dear graduates, today is a very special day in which your teachers, siblings and parents are feeling very proud of you. They have high hopes for you, and they believe in you! Take a look at them now, and you can see them smiling and snapping photos so they can remember this moment forever.
Today is a good day to hug them and thank them for all they have done for you throughout the years, because even though this achievement is yours, it couldn’t have been possible without their help. For today marks the day in which you begin a more independent journey. You are entering Middle School, where you will learn lots of new things, from learning to organize your schedule and remembering the right classrooms, dealing with 13 subjects at the same time, to getting to know yourselves and keeping good relationships with all the changes and challenges this stage in your lives brings.
Today you close one chapter of your lives, and welcome a new one full of challenges and new adventures. We wish you the best of luck, and the wisdom to be able to use the tools you have acquired, in order to shape your future as well balanced individuals. Congratulations!
