you believe it? You are now halfway on your journey to becoming an eighth grader! Wow! Time really does fly when you are having fun,
working hard, and, most importantly, when you are writing lots. I want
to congratulate you on your hard work and progress during the first two
quarters; I also want to urge you to work even harder during the next
five months: the harder you work, the smarter you will become and the more fun you will have doing it.
