8th Grade – Who am I?

Who are our eighth graders? We have Rebecca and Micah and Dylan and Marina, but who are they really? Do we know? Do they know? On Thursday, February 17th, our eighth graders participated in a program with eighth graders from Beth Tfiloh and Baltimore Hebrew Day Schools. This program, entitled, “When I Grow Up, I Want to Be…” was an opportunity for the students to see themselves as individuals as well as part of a larger community. It was a chance for the students to analyze who they are and who they want to be in terms of academics, spirituality, athletics, personality, and more. Though we often think of our students interacting with students from other schools on the field or the court, these “rivals” came together and accomplished a great task. By identifying who they want to be, they can begin to set goals for themselves for the future. There is no stopping our eighth graders from achieving great things.
