Dear Shayna B.,
We’re all really sad that we’re graduating from middle school soon, and we’ll miss each other. We worry we won’t talk to each other after going to different high schools. Any advice for keeping in touch?

Truth is, some of you will probably go to the same high school. Get each other’s number. On top of that, you’ll make new friends and you and your old friends can always hang out. And on top of that, you have months before you guys graduate. Also I’m sure you’ll be more than happy to leave all the bullies behind. You guys can repeat eighth grade. Double the grade, double the friends! And there’s no limit on how many times you can repeat a grade!
Summer vacation is a great time to visit your friends. Once high school starts you’ll be VERY busy. You must always remember to wear nice outfits and pack nice lunches though, because Mystery Meat Mondays should never become a thing. Just remember to always be friendly and don’t sign up for school lunch.
Best of luck,
Shayna is a sixth grader and knows what kids in elementary school and middle school are going through. She can be reached at [email protected] She’s looking forward to hearing from you!
