Max Lunievicz: Grade 8
On Friday, October 16, a Buckley tradition commenced for the 2015 – 2016 school year. Every year, the eighth graders write a speech about a personal experience, topic, event, or person to share something about them that makes them unique. Speeches are read to the entire school during a Friday assembly, which family and friends of the eighth graders are invited to attend. This not only gives them a chance to offer the Buckley community an insight into who they are, but it also gives them a taste of real-life public speaking.
Jack Davis and Andrew Mazza presented their speeches to the school as the first two eighth graders. They began a great year of speeches with their two topics: Jack Davis talked about the importance of caring, while Andrew Mazza talked about the importance of the simple things in life. In addition, Teddy Brita and Iman Ghanchi both gave their speeches on October 23. Teddy’s topic was the importance of humor in our lives, and Iman’s topic was the importance of friendship.
As we look into the upcoming months, we look forward to the many more speeches to come! Good luck to the class of 2016!
