Good Morning parents, special guests, teachers and staff, Mrs. Dietz and Mrs. German, and obviously: 5th grade class of 2015-2016.
My name is Paola and it’s an honor to tell my speech. The reason I’m here because I’m about to leave Daly Elementary. It’s really sad and happy at the same time; since that I’m leaving this place and I’m heading to middle school. Wow, I can’t believe this is almost the end of 5th grade. All of these memories I’ve had here will sure be missed…The moment of going to the 6th grade is EXCITING!
I would like to tell my experiences of both my old school and this school. They were somewhat rough and sufferable back then. Don’t worry. It’ll be quick. I promise.
Back then when I was in Brunswick Elementary, I’ve found it hard to make friends, because I was insane (possibly like Darian, sorry Darian). And some people found out I went to school a year earlier. I was struggling in school as well. In Pre-K, I’d get blamed for everything, even though it’s supposed to be their fault, and by “they,” I meant my Pre-K classmates. For example: One time, there was this girl named Jasmin (or Jasmine I can’t remember) shoved me on a playset (or dollhouse I can’t remember) so HARD my back felt like it broke. I’ve cried but the Pre-K teacher lectured me because I’d somewhat broke the playset. Even thought it was supposed to be Jasmin’s fault.
In Kindergarten nothing exciting happened.
After I’ve finished 1st grade, I moved here. I’ve started 2nd grade and met my 2nd grade teacher: Mrs. Brunk. Nothing excited happened that year.
In 3rd grade I met Ms. Deleon. She was a really nice teacher. I’ve met more people in 3rd grade, I’ve learned many new things and one time, we get to make ice cream. It was vanilla flavored, but it was delicious!
4th grade was one of the best school years in my entire life. I’ve met my 4th grade teacher. Her name is Ms. Schaffer (Now known as Mrs. Walker), she was really funny and she made me and my classmates laugh. Alot. One time we threw a surprise for her. It was one of the best parties and I’ll never forget that.
5th grade was similar to 4th grade. I met Mr. Fitz. He might have similar characteristics to Ms. Schaffer, because one year he took over 1,000 pictures. It was just like 4th grade all over again!
My goals for the future are:
- To be an artist when I grow up, I know it won’t give me lots of money, but I don’t care.
- Become an excellent skilled Major League Gamer (or, MLG). I love gaming.
- Go to Harvard or Yale University. One of the best universities all time.
There are many more goals I’m looking forward to, but for now, let’s just say: And the “List” goes on…
Before I end this speech, I would like to thank all the people who’ve helped me throughout all the school years. Here we go!
- My teachers. Pre-K to 5th. You have taught me many wonderful things.
- My friends. Both Brunswick and Daly. Especially Daly (I’m not comparing, but I’ve been to Daly for 4 years, and Brunswick for 3 years…). Like: Abigail, Jasmine (not the Brunswick Jasmin), Devonis, Lionel, Derek Lee, Darian (♥∇♥), Nyima, and the list goes on.
- My family, such as my Mom, my Dad, and my brother, Rafael.
- …And the list goes on…
Thank you all and remember: “You should never give up. No matter how hard the situation is, always believe that something beautiful is going to happen.”
Thank you everyone. You’ve been a great audience. Have a nice day everyone.
