Not an awards ceremony has gone by at my seven-year-old daughter Haley's school that she didn't get an award (usually about three or four of them) in the two years she has been in school now. Last week was the last awards ceremony of the year, and it was no exception. This ceremony included year-long awards, and among the many certificates and acknowledgements Haley received was what is called the "Superintendent's Honor Roll". This award goes to children who have a GPA in the 93% to 100% range. Haley has received this honor the entire year and as part of the yearly awards she was given a medal for being on the "Superintendent's Honor Roll". To add a bit more bragging, Haley has maintained a 100% average the ENTIRE YEAR in ALL OF HER CLASSES!!!
Here she is receiving her certificate and medal from the principal of her school. That's the assistant principal off to the left in blue.
Here she is in the group of children who also stayed on the superintendent's honor roll the entire year. The blonde-haired boy beside her is from her class.
Here she is post-awards ceremony in her classroom with her certificates. In hindsight I should have had her hold them in such a way that you could see all of them. She received the "Superintendent's Honor Roll", the "Citizenship" award, and a certificate for reading for being the top reader in her grade level. She should have received an award for perfect attendance, because she hasn't missed a single day all yeard, but the lady who runs the front desk and is in charge of attendance and I can't seem to agree on that.
Here is Haley with her medal, which is surprisingly nice. I was expecting something really cheap and thin, but it's actually nice and thick and heavy.
And here is Haley with her first grade teacher, who she just loves.
Congratulations, Haley! I am so proud of you!!
