This week has been a lot of good stuff. Finals Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday was the 8th grade trip for a National Harbor boat ride on the Spirit of Baltimore; lunch, dancing, and picture taking.
On Thursday was rehearsal and awards ceremony. Becca was nominated for the The Treuchet-Crumbaugh Citizenship Award which is giving to students who display an altruistic character, consistently helpful and is an "all around good student". The 8th grade teachers nominate students and then the faculty picks one boy and one girl. From the 400 8th graders, Becca was one of 37 kids nominated...Becca and her friend Jake WON the Citizenship Award. We were shocked and thrilled. Her reaction when she went to receive her award was priceless. It was an exceptional day celebrating her.
Friday was the day, Promotion Ceremony, Moving on Up to High School. Hard to believe we were going to have a freshman in high school. It would be a bittersweet day, but one of celebrating Becca.
