Whew…. Day 5 leads us to Thursday. Today.
Last night was crazy. I found out that the awards assembly was actually scheduled for today and not Friday like I originally thought. I had to find someone to keep my students for me so I could go see my oldest get an award. We knew he wasn’t getting an honor roll award, but I had gotten a note that said he was getting something. I have a wonderful, wonderful friend who graciously agreed to keep my students. (I think she secretly loves keeping my classes because she loves little ones)
I waited and waited and waited to see what award he would get. The school makes the students be self disciplined. I love that! They have what are known as SAR. Student Accomplishment Record. The student deducts points from their SAR if they are not where they are supposed to be, forget their homework, have gum, are disrespectful to others, etc. Students who maintain a 90 average for the 9 weeks are recognized and given a treat. The principal decided that those students who maintain a 95 average for the 9 weeks needed special recognizition. So they created the ROC. Really Outstanding Citizen award. The teachers put the names of the students who have maintained a 95 or above average in a “hat” and pull 2 names. At the awards assembly, those students are recognized.
And today, my sweet big boy, who did not make honor roll and was beyond embarrassed about it was honored for being a “Really Outstanding Citizen.” I could not have been prouder of him!
