The Zehr kids! Elijah and Macklin had awards day school this week. Elijah received awards for Outstanding Achievement in Social Studies, Top 5 in multiplication and division and Outstanding Achievement in the Science bowl. He also received a plaque for being on the Principal's List (straight A's) the entire year! Macklin received awards in 1st Grade Spelling, 1st Grade Reading (the speediest) and Hand Writing Mechanics (the irony overwhelms me.....I thought she was taking after me on this one, clearly she has overcome her genetic predisposition for terrible handwriting!). She also received an Outstanding Achievement award for being on the Honor Roll all year! After Macklin's award ceremony we went to her class room for a presentation of the play Alphabet Zoo. Macklin's role was Elmer the Elephant, the narrator. She gets her acting genes from her Aunt Amanda who also served as the narrator in her first grade play :0)~ I really could go on and on about their teachers. They have been such a blessing to our family and truly work to make a difference in the lives of children. Now.....let SUMMER BREAK begin!
