I wouldn’t worry! 8th grade is such an amazing year in whatever school you are in. You rule the school, and it’s great! I’m sure you’ll have fun with which ever job you get. Just make the best of it, and do your best to have a blast!August 30, 2011 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #811820maskingtapeMember

8th grade was my favorite year in elementary school. there was always activities, and fun things planned. special trips and special things that just the 8th graders are allowed to do. also you rule the school. the younger grades look up to you. be sure to be a good role model and have a good time! time does fly!August 30, 2011 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #811823aries2756Participant
The only difficult part of 8th grade is preparing for High School exams. Aside from that it is all about reaping the rewards of all the hard work you put in to get to this point. You will be working on a Year Book, on a graduation trip, on graduation itself, on a graduation trip and on leaving your mark on the school. It will be about doing your best to be a good role model for the younger grades, maybe doing cheesed to help them or help out in the community and trying to be the best graduating class of the school. Don’t worry about it.
Speak to your parents about which High School is best for you, then speak to the Guidance Counselor in your school to start working on getting the applications in order. Then get a tutor if necessary to bulk up for the exams. Don’t borrow trouble, everyone survives 8th grade with little or no effect at all. Usually it is the most fun of their lives until they get to Senior Year. Enjoy!August 30, 2011 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #811824Queen BeeMember
Hi, GumBall. Eighth grade was the best year for me. Make the most of it!
Since aries2756 brought up high school, I just want to offer some advice: go to the high school YOU want to go to. Don’t let teachers or parents make the decision for you. But of course respect your parents. Remember that you are the one who will go through those four years, so pick the best place for you.
Hatzlacha!August 31, 2011 12:03 am at 12:03 am #811825sarahbarah2Member
Just finished 8th grade and it was the best year so far! You have so much to do it went by so fast and I wish I can do it all over again! Now I’m worrying bout starting high school but still dnt be at all worried it will be a blastAugust 31, 2011 1:19 am at 1:19 am #811826kapustaParticipant
Eighth grade is probably one of the easiest years of school. Its mostly working on yearbook/graduation and is not so much actual “school”. There is also a certain element of fun just because its an “in-between” stage where you get some benefits of the younger grades and some benefits of high school. Have fun and enjoy spending time with your friends.
Welcome back, btw.August 31, 2011 1:31 am at 1:31 am #811827stickynoteMember
Gumball: Although 8th grade looks daunting and scary you will see that actually its fun and exciting.
In a couple of years (or in the next couple of months) you will look back and say I was scared for 8th grade??
Meanwhile, most of us in the CR are reading this post and thinking I don’t even remember 8th grade.. and thats her biggest worry 🙂 But yes on your level that is a concern that you are facing.August 31, 2011 5:08 pm at 5:08 pm #811828
