In lieu of assembly…

Distance ed for the most part is pretty great but there are a few things the kids miss out on. Phys Ed is a little bit tricky, being part of a team is hard to do and having that sense that you’re part of a bigger community who are all cheering you on can be tough. At the end of last year, Jack won the achievement award for his year 5 class. Since then, I’ve been trying to figure out a nice way to present it to him… maybe a special dinner, I was thinking we could do it at the team retreat we jut had. But nothing really felt right. We ended up doing it this morning… just the four of us before classes started and then I asked him if I could put something on here instead… to show him how proud we are of him! So if you want to pretend you’re at our imaginary school assembly and send him some words of encouragement, feel free!

He’s a pretty special kid… he not only works really hard and does a great job with school but he’s got a huge heart and he’s one of the most encouraging people I know.

Congratulations Jack!
