School Awards! I passed as a parent! :-)

Today was the assembly for school awards.  Lil'Gal rocked it out of the ball park!

Her and her buddy, Ray-Ray brought first grade reading to a new level.  Also, the kindergarten class all read a minimum of 50 books this year, making this the first year they were recognized (with medals) for their reading abilities!

This is one of the reasons why I love our little school.  The teacher dedication to reading and math (and second/third grade science, blech!  Juuuust kiddin'!) is awesomely unbeatable!

Though, we are working on our way to transfer into the bigger school within our area because it is getting to be that time in their life -- and our little school doesn't teach past fourth grade. [Hush WonderMom, bite'eth your tongue'eth -- she doesn't want us to transfer.] ;-)

Here is my Lil'Gal (The First Video; there is a secret surprise video at the end of this post).

Here is Farmer, Jr.  I clipped the beginning trying to turn the flip cam back on.  The replacement batteries were low as they hadn't been recharged in awhile.

94.5 AR points accumulate or calculates to somewhere around 200 books.  It depends because chapter books are longer but typically only count for .5 points; though, a few count for more than an average book.  I dunno.  But, he done good!

Here is the big kicker!  We only had two first graders this year in our school.  ONLY TWO.  Out of AAAAAAALLLL the Lutheran Schools across the USA our two students beat the pie out of the rest of the schools as a class.  Many of the Lutheran schools have admissions of 100, 200, etc.  Though, there are some smaller schools like ours.

Lil'Gal and her adorable pal, Ray-Ray tore those big schools with more first grade readers a 'new one.'  If ya' will,  --------------->;  Me, Proud Mama!!!!

And, with that?  Tomorrow we end the 2009-2010 school year with a party and dismissal at noon.

SWEEEEEEEET?  TOTTTALLLY!  [I don't know why I have to keep saying that...]

Nearly 95 AR points? Wow!!
Happy summer to you all. :)

We've got 15 more school days here, and then GRADUATION!!

But before graduation for my oldest, the 14yo and I are joining his band on a 21.5 hour field trip next Saturday. Yes, nearly 22 hours. Meet at the school at 4:15am Saturday morning, return to school at 1:40am Sunday (IF the bus is on time). And then we will be at the 9am worship service because MM is preaching that Sunday! (Graduates do that here at our church.) But that's looking ahead. This weekend is about relaxing in preparing for the next 3 weekends!

Go enjoy your summer. You earned it! :)
