Students of the 6 Weeks

At my girls' elementary, the teachers pick 2 students each 6 weeks to be the 'Student of the Six Weeks'. It is a very big honor to be picked and ALL of my girls have been picked this year. Bailey was picked LAST 6 weeks, and this 6 weeks, Avery and Parker got chosen. They have a ceremony after school for them to be recognized. They are called up one by one and afterwards there are refreshments. The kids just love it and feel so special. I am SO proud of these girls.

Mr Adams (the principal) and the girls. Jude was feeling a little left out I think and jumped in this one. :)

I CANNOT find the pictures of Bailey at her ceremony, so...here is a picture of her and HER teacher Mrs. Sharp (at Halloween). We LOVE Mrs. Sharp. I feel like a bad mom for not having HER ceremony picture, but what can ya do??

Avery and her FAVORITE teacher, Mrs. Varner. What are we going to do without Mrs. Varner next year. This is a teacher that Avery has said she wishes was her Grandma. Now THAT's a teacher!!


The thing that I think is cool about Avery is that she does NOT make straight A's or even straight B's, the teachers chose her for trying HER hardest and being a great girl. I just love that it isn't ALL about the child's grades. Avery would NEVER get chosen if it was JUST about grades. I am SO thankful that she has great teachers this year that think she is sweet and special, just like I do.

Notice Parker's nervous feet. I thought that was so cute.

I know everyone has heard of Mrs. Reese by now, so.... here is Parker with HER favorite - Mrs. Reese.

WAY TO GO GIRLS!!!

  • Way to go! That is so neat.

    I still can't believe how grown up Avery is. Wasn't it just yesterday she was born?

  • What an awesome accomplishment for all of your girls!!! I also think it's neat that you don't have to be the perfect straight A student to get that award. I know that made Avery feel good. =) You have such good kids. I worry about the day Dylan starts school....I'm afraid he won't bring home any "good behavior" awards after his day today. ha!!!! Things went good tonight btw......he got in trouble.....but learned a good lesson....I THINK. We'll see on Tuesday!!!! =)

  • Hey Nicole! Remember me? LOL! I closed down my blog months ago because I had some interesting things happen with it. Anyway, I was going through my old blogroll and thought that I'd peek in here to see how you all are doing.

    Your kids are adorable! You must be so very proud of them. :)

    If you wouldn't mind sending me an email, I'd like to talk to you about something. I couldn't find your email address on your blog. So, if you email me at livinginmymind@sbcglobal.net I'd really appreciate it. :)

    Thanks so much, Nicole! Enjoy those kiddoes!
