On Casey’s last day of school, June 12, 2015, parents were invited to go to their child’s classroom for class award ceremonies. I eagerly went, gratefully leaving the little ones with their Teta.
I was the only parent who came, and the whole process was incredibly informal, taking about five minutes.
Casey’s teacher, Ms. Lingle, gave out awards for a variety of reasons. Casey received four awards:
1. Perfect Attendance for the Year
2. Excellence for the Reading EOG
3. Excellence for the Math EOG
4. Paper plate award for Most Likely to Become President
I don’t know why, but I teared up when he got the paper plate award. He got his last, and I felt that it was such an honor that his classmates would see him as a worthy candidate for president.
I know that they are 4th graders, but that meant a lot to me. It made me feel that I am raising my son right.
I made Casey take pictures with his awards. I was, and am, so proud of him!
