An 8th grader's view of the first dance.

The First Dance

Sweat. Pizza Grease. Soda spills. Ear-blasting music. All of these things immediately remind me of my past dances at Sutherland. They are an essential part of the Sutherland experience. Unfortunately, by the eighth grade year, the majority of students are slightly tired, and look forward to high school prom and the renown Eighth grade Formal Celebration. I especially noticed this when I went into a sixth grade classroom and asked who was planning to attend the dance. Nearly all the students responded with yes. Comparatively, when I went into an eighth grade classroom, only one student was coming. Eighth grade, why are you less enthusiastic? We should be the leaders of the school, being models for the younger students. Let's not lose our sixth grade enthusiasm!
