Submissions for the 8th grade graduation speeches and poems to be included in the program are due Monday, May 16. Two speeches and one poem will be chosen for presentation at the 2015-2016 BYMS eighth grade promotion ceremony, a 25 year old tradition.

 

All eighth grade students have the opportunity to submit a poem or speech. The final speeches will be presented during promotion and the final poem will be published in the promotion program.  

The specific requirements for the speeches are that it must be one and a half to two pages typed and double spaced.The poems must be 20 lines to one page and single or double spaced.
“Students are benefited by this because they are being a part of their final memory at Bernardo. Students watching the speeches typically identify with what is being read and can relate to those experiences,” stated Mr. Kish, BYMS 8th grade teacher, Activity Director, and Language Arts Department Chairperson.
