We had a proud moment as parents yesterday. Dylan received an award at the school's 2nd trimester awards ceremony. He was presented the "Personal Best" award and a gift certificate to eat at Claim Jumper. The following is the little blip that was said about him for receiving the award:
Dylan is very deserving of Room 17's Personal Best award. His outstanding effort in all academic areas is an example to his classmates. He approaches every challenge with a smile and a can-do attitude. Dylan takes his time on each assignment and, as a result, consistently produces beautiful work. We have enjoyed watching Dylan blossom in first grade. Congratulations, Dylan!
I spoke to Dylan's teacher after school and she said he wrote, "Today is the best day of my life" in his journal. I think he was pretty excited. He is looking forward to Garth's return so we can go eat at Claim Jumper.
We are so proud of Dylan's accomplishment. He has come a long way from the first day of school. We are so glad that he is respectful and hard working at school. (We don't always get that from him here at home, but I think that is kind of normal.) It is so much fun watching him learn and grow in so many different areas. Keep up the great work Dylan. We are so proud to call you our son.
