Star Student

(PIC: HEIGHTS family night - world's largest ice cream sundae?) In the midst of my nervousness last week, I did not share Shayla's wonderful news. She received the "Student of the Week" award for her school. The information read "Shayla was nominated by her teacher for always doing her best, being polite and helpful and for having a smile for all." We love this little gal so much!

Although she loves the one day a week she goes to another school for her gifted instruction, she is not real happy about being put in an advanced math class. The theory is they are doing 5th and 6th grade math together so that next year she'll do 7th grade math as a 6th grader. I really don't know much more, but she keeps telling us, "Just because you're good at something doesn't mean you like it and you want to do more of it. I don't like math." When I took her to school today I did talk with her teacher about it and she's going to talk with Shayla. Since Shayla thinks her teacher "walks on water" that should help.

Here are some pictures I don't believe I've ever shared. PICTURES: March 2003 - living in the Ronald McDonald House of NYC (Chrsiti 5, Shayla 4)

Congratulations Shayla on your "Student of the Week" accomplishment! But, I bet IF the rules would allow, YOU would be chosen Student of the Week EVERY week! :)
