The end of the first trimester has come. The girls had great report cards. Ava had an interesting first trimester of 4th grade because her teacher had back surgery and they had 3 different subs over the 3 months. Luckily the regular teacher, Mrs Brown, is back now and hopefully the 2nd trimester will be more of the normal schedule for the kids and they will have their grades back up and on the honor roll. Leah is in the 2nd/3rd grade combo class and is rising to the occasion of being with older students. Mrs Overmyer loves Leah a lot. Both kids seem happy in school and are doing well.
Both of the girls were tested for GATE and they got achievement ribbons at the awards ceremony. Leah got the Respect award and a participation ribbon for the Reflections Art contest. Ava got Outstanding Citizenship. We are proud of all they are accomplishing and very happy for their successes.
