8GA8 Slide Show
Saturday th June 5 2009
You wake up and it hits you
Don’t lie. You know you’re going to miss it
No more opening circle
No more corny skits
No more pancakes
No more new friends from other schools
No more apprenticeships
No more college trips
No more aggy Team Leaders
In the Beginning
You only talked to kids from your middle school
Now even the Rogers and Mildred girls are friends
At 8GA this year youâ€Ś
visited lots of colleges….
applied and got accepted to great high schoolsâ€Ś
But what makes 8GA so special are the people: the apprentices, the CTs and Writing Coachesâ€Ś
And the Team Leaders usually forced it, but it is always because we care.
Team Leaders make sure you do your homework
We dress up in costumes
We genuinely like hanging out with you
Weâ€™re happy to go to work, because our job is working with you!
We keep in touch with you after your go to high school and connect you to summer jobs and good programs
We check you in. And call your mom if youâ€™re late (itâ€™s just to make sure your safe, really)
We plan special events to showcase and celebrate your hard work.
We celebrate your accomplishments and your growth into high school ready young men and women!
We paint funny pictures on your face, because why not?
We hold you to high expectations, and we know in a few years, you’ll look back and you’ll understand why.
But Team Leaders donâ€™t do the work of 8GA alone, an army of CTs and Writing Coaches volunteer their timeâ€Ś
because we believe in you
and want you to have the opportunity to succeed.
It all started at GO WEEK
One thing is clear â€Ś
in 2013 8GA8 will graduate from high school and enroll in college!
Alumni For Life
So many memoriesâ€Ś
