Goodbye 7th Grade Poem

Goodbye 7th grade,

And hello to 8th.

I have walked your hallways too long.

I smile and cry

to think of goodbye,

but I know I will bring

memories of you along.

Summer approaches,

Finals come out,

students tell others of vacation plans.

But I can only sit here and wonder

how 7th grade has made me the person I am.

I have learned so much

in this past year,



and band.

But I have more importantly gained

new friends,

new memories,

to help me hand in hand.

And though I am happy that summer’s arrived,

I take a deep breath and sigh.

Why does life pass so quickly?

Why does 7th grade have to end?

The answer:

It doesn’t.


Author’s note:

This is my last required blog post of 7th grade! I hate to say it, but I am probably not going to write on this blog for a long while.  7th grade has taught me so much, and I can’t believe I am going into eighth grade and then a year after that to high school! I have gone through eight years of school so far and I still live on in them through the good memories I have made (except for maybe kindergarten through 3rd grade).  But we all have to let go at one time or another, so finally, goodbye to 7th grade…

  1. The good news is that your blog is patient, and it will be here when you decide to return to it 🙂

    Seventh grade will miss you, Ingrid, but off you go in a few weeks to new learning and new adventures!
