HERE) and the second was picked by me. (I got them from Mrs. Parnell's TPT store HERE ) Both of these were perfect for what I wanted to say to each child. Also, my entire class placed on the AR reading race against the 4/5 grade class we have been competing with, so everyone got a ribbon, certificate, and pencil. To top everything off I had several kids that acheived honor roll and perfect attenance which means they were put in a drawing to win cool prizes. And low and behold one of my kids won both a perfect attendance AND honor roll prize. WOOT WOOT!
Friday was also graduation day for our three seniors at the school. This year I was close to the two girls because I was lucky enough to be their FEA (Future Educators of Alaska) Adviser. I even was able to take the one in pink to Anchorage for the first time in her life for a pre-teaching conference. I think that made this year's graduation all the more special. I clapped and hollered when I heard their accomplishments named, cried with pride, and celebrated their movement to the next step of their life.
Alright back to the grindstone. Two more days until school is out and only 6 until I get home to Indiana!
