While I was in Atlanta Elizabeth got an award for high scores on last year’s STAR testing. Daniel got the award every year he was at her school and she’s once again keeping up with her older brother. And even though he doesn’t go to school there anymore, he also got an award for his fifth grade STAR scores. Then this month, report cards came out and Daniel got a 3.8 GPA for the semester and is officially an honor student. He got an award and a sticker at a ceremony at the middle school gym. Then just yesterday, without telling us to come and watch, Elizabeth got two more awards. Sandy and I are so proud and know they will keep making us so.
We went to an awards ceremony at school where Elizabeth got an award for being a good role model. The award was for the character trait: Being Giving. I never thought she was that “giving,” and don’t know what she could be giving away. But there it is, and we are very proud of her. Good job, Elizabeth!
Daniel and Elizabeth both got school awards yesterday. I think it’s the first day that both got awards on the same day. Elizabeth’s was for “Excellence in Reading Comprehension.” Daniel’s was for “Most Persuasive.” I know that Liz is a very prolific reader and really does seem to understand most or all of what she reads, but I have never thought of Daniel as all that persuasive. We’ll see at report card time if he’s persuasive enough to get his teacher to give him good grades.
Daniel and Elizabeth both got school awards, Liz for being a good author and illustrator, and Dan for academic achievement. Both got the awards in a ceremony that Sandy went to but I couldn’t because of work. The ceremony surprised us since it came so soon after we got back from Hawaii. We are so proud of both of them.
We’re so proud of Daniel’s getting a STAR testing honor student award tonight. Last year Daniel’s school spent a whole week taking California’s Standardized Testing and Reporting exams. Some kids did well in the Language Arts portion and got awards, some kids did well in the Math portion and got awards, but Daniel did well in both. Everything up to here has been written before (see here). Now having done it two years in a row, we are doubly proud of him. Great job Dan.

We were surprised when we found out the school gives awards to kids who do well. Some kids did well in the Language Arts portion and got awards, some kids did well in the Math portion and got awards, but Daniel did well in both. The last couple of years he got some ambiguous “enthusiastic learner” awards, but this one seems to actually be a measure of learning performance. Good job Dan!!!!
