8th Grade Graduation We had a great Graduation ceremony last night! Thank you to all of the teachers, staff, students and parent volunteers for making it happen!

I think they provide great insight, from a student’s perspective, of what their experience was like at our school. Print copies of our student speeches from last night are available at the end of this Flyer. I encourage all of our families to take a few minutes to read them.

Graduation Speeches

Payton Tiner Graduation Speech

Good evening Mr. Boothby, my amazing teachers, the MMCA staff, all our families, and most importantly my fellow graduates. I would like to thank you all for being here, especially our families, because without them we wouldn’t be here… mostly because we can’t drive ourselves yet. My name is Payton Tiner, and I am honored to be up here speaking to you today. I first came to this school as a shy fourth grader, but since then, I have learned so much, and grown as a person.

Thank you to my teachers and peers who have given me the support and encouragement to not only be able to write this speech, but actually stand up here and deliver it to you today. So much has happened over the last five years. In fifth grade we thought school would be closed for two weeks, and clearly that was not the case. Those hectic years of virtual schooling and masks were difficult, but it has made 8th grade even more special than it would have been because it has been our only “normal” year of middle school.

In three months, we will all start high school, and a lot of us are going our separate ways, but we will always have the memories we share from MMCA. Like the time in seventh grade, when we went down to the park and played truth or dare as an entire class. Turns out I have some very creative-minded peers. Or when we went to Six Flags last year to learn about physics, but what I actually learned was how high-pitched some of you can scream. Some of our memories together are just as small as complaining about an assignment, or the Monday Mile, but they are still memories that have bonded our class together.

I don’t know about my fellow graduates, but I have been thinking about our graduation for a long time. I remember talking about this day with my friends as far back as fifth grade. I remember talking about my dress and my shoes and how excited I was to be done and move onto high school.

But now, standing up here, all I can think about is how much I will miss this school and these people. I think cliches and inspirational quotes can be kind of cringy, but you really can’t have a graduation speech without one, so I’ll just leave you with this one from Kevin Horsely…

“Your memory is the glue that holds your life together, everything you are today is because of your amazing memory.” Thank you MMCA for being our glue. Thank you for your time, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.

Silvan Shergill Graduation Speech

Good evening, friends, parents, siblings, and fellow graduates. We are gathered here today to celebrate the graduating class of 8th grade and to congratulate them for the many years of hard work that they have put in to be here. As most of you know, my name is Silvan Shergill, and I am honored to be giving this speech to you guys today.

First, I would like to thank all my teachers who helped me along the way with my education. They have guided me along the journey, and I can’t thank them enough. They taught me many valuable lessons such as making mistakes and how to learn from them.

I also wanted to thank all my sports coaches, especially Mr. Boothby, for making sports at this school extremely exciting for my teammates and I. They have helped us become better players and better people, and I can’t thank them enough. With our success and growth this year, we ev

en got a football banner for JV and Varsity. Shout Out to the Jasons.

Next, I would like to thank my parents. My parents have always been there with me through every step of my life and have provided unconditional love, support, and motivation through everything. Without them, I would not be the person who I am today, and I am so grateful that they are such outstanding people.

MMCA has provided us with such amazing memories, like when my teammates and I were on the basketball team, and we played random music on the speakers as loud as possible to the point where the opposing team was so confused about what was happening. We were all just having fun, and just laughing. These types of memories help teach me to enjoy the little things in life.

I cannot believe I have been at this school for 7 years, and I am grateful for every day this school has given me. One day you are getting excited for the first day of school, and in a blink of an eye, you're graduating. Time moves by so fast, and I am thankful to be spending it here.

Thank you, MMCA, for this fantastic journey, life lessons, and the friendships it created for me. Thank you for all the field trips, meaningful activities, and stories that will stick with me as I move on to high school. Thank you to all the classmates who made this journey fun and exciting, and I wish you the best of luck on your new path.

Now, before I end my speech and get off the stage, I would like to say a quote from Sun Tzu. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Thank you!

Cori Nicholson’s Graduation Speech

Teachers, parents, and fellow graduates thank you for coming to this celebratory day, and thank you, teachers, for giving me this opportunity to speak. As many of you may know my name is Cori Nicholson.

Boy, what a time, it feels like I was just a little kindergartener sitting on a bench wondering where my mom was. And now I'm here, standing on this stage, on nearly my last day at MMCA. It's been nine whole years, but some of my fellow graduates have more years under their belts.

So many things have happened throughout our lives here at MMCA, but I think we can all agree that our favorite memory at MMCA would be the Sac. State aquatic center, I remember all of us being lined up in kayaks and having people run across jumping into the cool water.

Also, playing tug of war with a big rope, and having Mr. Barnes overpower us, making us fall.

Most of us would also consider the middle school dance as something we’ll never forget, where it is there that it was universally decided that if two people were dancing we would circle around them taking photos or videos of the cute couples. Lastly, some of us will never forget running for our teachers or parents and having to repeat ourselves over and over “ I can’t disclose this information at this time, could I get you my supervisor?” during the mock disaster. Shout out to Mrs. Crouch for teaching us these skills that will last forever.

We are so grateful to everyone who has helped during our years here at MMCA; thank you teachers and staff for helping and giving us grace through our hardships. I especially want to thank Mrs. K for helping me when I needed it most, for being understanding when I made a mistake, pulling me out of the sea of letters and numbers, and saying “Alright let's get these ovs under control!”

As well as, Mr. Baldonade for teaching me life lessons for the past nine years; If it weren’t for you I wouldn't have my love for music. Additionally, Thank you Orange and GreenRoom teachers for being humorous during the rocky path of Covid-19. Most of us still have that amazing experience of going to Sly Park! I’ll miss the candy Mrs. Melendez would give us, Mrs. Thomas’s snacks her kids didn’t want, Mrs. Watkins's amazing songs, and Mr. Barnes’s mints. Yes, food is the way to persuade us. As stated by Mrs. Oslick ``You're just toddlers that can reach things.”

Oh and of course most importantly, thank you MMCA, you have been the school to teach me my ABCs and 1,2,3’s you have taught students everything From their manners in a

nd out of school and how to do taxes when we are older. Thank you, because without you all I don't think any of us would be where we are today.

Thank you for listening.
