On the Eighth, From the Eighth

As announced yesterday, each month we will present some work from an eighth-grade student on the eighth of the month. 

Any student interested in submitting creative work for our monthly posts can email a submission to and Mr. Vogelsinger and his team of editors will consider it for publication on our site. We are excited to work with as many writers and artists this year as possible!

We begin our year of eighth-grade poems published on the eighth of the month with a poem about identity:

I Am
tired, bored, loving, artist
daughter of Denise and Robert
lover of the arts and pencils
who feels anxious and scared
who needs art to breath and music to think
who gives happiness to others
who fears heights, spiders, the dark, and lightning
who would like to see every country and experience every culture
who enjoys feeling free and needed
who likes to wear baggy clothes
resident of the Milky Way Galaxy
