Grade 8 Inspirations

Grade 8 Inspirations is an exercise in reflection, a formal speech, and one of the highlights of a student’s Middle School career. Through the program, each eighth grade student works with a faculty member to develop an eight-minute presentation about something or someone who is a source of inspiration. The speech is an opportunity for students to share their passions with others in the community. Family members and the person who is the subject of the Inspiration often attend, and the supportive atmosphere created by the audience is uplifting. This is another example of how we build a sense of community in the Middle School.
