Now on to some bragging. This morning they had an awards ceremony for all of Kindergarten. For her class she recieved an award for Academic Excellence, (showing student mastery in the classrom) Citezenship, (Setting a Great Example of Leadership and earned by one girl and one boy in each class) Honor Roll for the 4th quarter, and a certificate for earning Honor Roll all 4 quarters. I was so proud and you could just tell she was so proud of herself.
I had a parent/teacher conference with her teacher on Monday and she told me how proud she was of Alexis and all she has done and specifically told me how all the kids in the class really look up to her. They want her to help them read, they want to play with her, and she is really sweet to all of them. I'm so glad that she has learned not only academically but socially as well. She also told me she is doing great in all areas including reading at a second grade level.
One more thing I have to write down is what her teacher wrote on her report card... She said, "Alexis is an exceptional student, she is so eager to read and learn about the world around her. She finishes the year with a Developmental Reading Score at level 22 which means she can read almost any book she picks up. Her writing is superb, she gets her thoughts down on paper in a legible way and far exceeds all KDG standards. She's been recommended to participate in the gifted program and is promoted to First Grade for the year 2011-12.
Random. Ryan and her friend Jake. I have no idea WHY they thought this would be fun but they did it for a few minutes before I realized I have my camera take a picture. She loves her friend Jakey.
