I want to write this letter to inspire you for next year. I know exactly how you feel because I also got kept back. Last year, in the last days that I had with my friends I spent sometime crying and making cards for the new 6th graders.
I didn’t go to 8th graduation last year for two reasons. First, I wasn’t graduating so I thought there was no point for me to come. I didn’t want to celebrate with others. Second, reason is because that day was my birthday.
My advice is you shouldn’t do what I did. At least come to the graduation to support close friends and cherish the big day with them. I’ve seen you work in tutorial and you’re really smart and you should show that to people, teachers, and tutors. There is nothing wrong with showing people what you’re capable of. There is a reason for everything that happens. I just believe that if you put enough effort next year you will be happier and more successful.
What kept me so positive this year at MATCH and a reason for me to work hard, was my mom. She kept telling me how upset she was and that I had to be a role model for my little sister. Your probably thinking how can I be a role model for my younger brother ZZ? It doesn’t matter that he is a little boy, showing him that doing your homework is important and making your mom happy will teach him important values right there.
My advice to you is not to give up and put effort and most importantly “do you”! Don’t focus on drama/gossiping let everything happen and if it doesn’t involve you, you have no reason to care. Take this chance of repeating, as a 2nd chance to be better and improve.
Next year, I’m going to come to YOUR graduation and when they call YOUR name you’re going to be so happy because you know that you deserved that diploma.
Good luck. Take care.”
