To our most esteemed administrators, staff, and teachers, dear parents and family members, beloved friends, ladies and gentl emen, the day has finally come, our middle school promotion. It is with great pride and privilege to be able to address all of you up on this grand stage, as we express the happiness and love we feel in our hearts today. It’s middle school promotion after all, we’re finishing one step of our education.
We do not need an award or medal to prove that we have something special within us. We are all blessed with many talents and are worth congratulating. If someone were to ask me about how many times I’ve thought about this day, I would have to say that I’ve thought about this day so many times I could have memorized each imagined scene. But none of the imagined scenes could compare to the mesmerizing scene I am greeted with right now.
Like many of you, I am excited to be here. Not only to address the “freshman class of 2019-2020” but to also be standing in the exact same spot many Rancho Milpitas Middle School presidents have stood years before me. We’ve all been in school long enough to realize that we’ve come a long way in our journey indeed. And now that we’ve passed the challenges of middle school, it’s time for us to move on to an even bigger fight- high school.
Life is a never ending battle, which means we are going to face many challenges, even in high school. Sure, we solve problems by ourselves, answer our tests individually, and go about our everyday life on our own, but one cannot deny the importance of those around us. Our parents, family member, friends, teachers, administrators, and even the lady who serves us lunch, have played vital roles in helping us be where we are today. All of them have made it possible to see through the challenges and come out of them as stronger and better people. As we move to our next step in life, always remember that you have support and guidance when needed.
Remember, Dons, we have come a long way, and we have earned this moment! Celebrate and enjoy this well-earned promotion! Congratulations to the future class of 2023!
