For 8th grade awards night we waited and waited and waited for Rebecca to get called up. The list was long. And we continued to wait. Kids who got commendations in P.E. and Spanish and Language Arts. Kids who showed marked improvement in their grades over the past 3 years. Kids who got President's Academic Awards for 3.5GPA for the past year and half.
And then my kid and a small group like her. President's Awards, commendations in classes, and straight As for the 3 years.
To say we are proud is an understatement.
|Rebecca getting congrats from her science teacher.|
|Becca and one of her best friends, Alison.|
The evening was a dress-up affair and just about every kid looked so very sharp. Grandma even brought Rebecca flowers.
|The crew, minus dad and grandpa.|
After the awards we went out for ice cream.
|Tried to get a decent DQ photo. Take 1.|
|And Take 2. Never mind. |
|With far too much time waiting for stuff in the MS gym....|
The following night we were back in the Saunders gym for Becca's final chorus concert. She wasn't very happy with it, but made it through.

And today I had a few minutes and a project I've been meaning to do for a while. The kids were on the Frogs summer swim team for the past 3 years and have amassed quite a few ribbons. The cap tore at one point but Becca didn't want to throw it out, and what do you do with all those ribbons anyway? Well, here's an idea and a little something for Rebecca's room in Jordan:

Congratulations to your daughter regarding her many accomplishments!! I also wanted to tell you that I love the idea for displaying all the swim ribbons! Well done!ReplyDelete
