Final School Days

This is our last day of all three on the same schedule as they will be in three different buildings from now on with different bus schedules.
A very stressed Makenna melted down immediately after a test last week. Apparently she cried out something along the lines of, "That's it! I can't do this anymore! I'm quitting school, getting a G.E.D, becoming a stripper and changing my name to Velvet." Her bewildered teacher calmly responded, " received a 99% on your test". God bless him. She was beyond exhausted as she wrapped up multiple projects, writing assignments and finals. All indications are she is ready for summer.

For the first time in the school's history, an entire class passed all the levels in music class and were asked to perform a song called Joy in honor of a classmate they lost to cancer last year. 

By contrast, Kate and Ty each celebrated multiple free days, lots of playtime and creative assignments. Kate participated in her 4th grade celebration where her teacher reminded the entire class they were special and could do anything they set their mind to. She made sure each child got a warm hug and personal words of encouragement. To say we have adored her the last two years would be an understatement. Kate shares stories here and there about the ways this teacher goes above and beyond in her quest to help each and every student. She is a blessing and just as she told Kate, we too have a special place in our hearts for her. We politely asked the principal if we could take her to middle school with us but we were denied.

Miss Heid presented his lanyard with a hug

Kindergarten celebration was beyond adorable. Ty was pumped when he was presented with his lanyard and declared a first grader officially by the principal. He and his sweet friend, Ashlyn enjoyed chatting throughout the ceremony. As it turns out, her mother and I did as well.

Both Kate and Ty were acknowledged with awards on the last day of school. Ironically, they both received math awards. I text the oldest three demanding an explanation and Erin swiftly responded, "I can count to 32 and that is all that is required for my job." Touche.
