Who did you interview for the SAS 8th grade gift to the school? What were his/her suggestions?

It is better to ask thought-provoking questions than to know all of the answers.
Write about this quote. What does it mean to you? Do you agree? What are three questions that you have been wondering about?
You are the leaders of our school. The students from preschool to middle school look up to you and will miss you when you graduate and go on to high school. Some of you have been at SAS since preschool and you have friends and teachers who have known you most of your life. What would you like your legacy to be here at SAS? A few years back the 8th grade students began the "gift to the school" project as a way to say aloha and farewell to SAS. The first year, the students purchased the materials to build the benches that we use for sports events in the courtyard. The year before last, it was the mural that hangs on the exterior kitchen wall. Last year the students made the "Walk With the Saint" tile footprints that add color and personality to the courtyard. What do you think would be a good project that would benefit most of the students and teachers at our school? We should start planning now so that we have the whole year to make something wonderful happen before it is time for you to say goodbye. What do you think will benefit the school most? Describe your idea and we will discuss and vote on one or two of your suggestions.
Write about something you did this summer.
Maybe you visited a new place, met someone new, learned a new sport or game, or tried a new food. Here's the catch: You must have at least 26 words that begin with a different letter of the alphabet. Find a way to include a word that starts with a different letter until all 26 letters have been used. Good luck!
