Zach's First Sleep Away Camp

There were lots of nerves last night and this morning as we got Zach ready for his first sleep-away camp.  He and all the 5th graders at Heritage Elementary left this morning for Camp McDowell, where they will hike, canoe and learn a lot about Native Americans and environmental science.  I know that he will have a blast but it's still hard when you see how nervous they are about going away.  Can't wait to pick him up on Wednesday afternoon and hear all about it!

Awards Day at Heritage Elementary School

Both Grace & Zach had their Awards Day at Heritage Elementary today.  The Sixth Grade Celebration and Awards Day was first and then I went to Zach's class for his Awards Day.  We are so proud of both Grace & Zach.  They both worked so hard this year and had a great 4th and 6th grade year!  Grace was recognized for being on the A/B Honor Roll and she also received a Certificate of completion for fulfilling all sixth grade academic requirements.  I can't believe she will be in 7th grade and in middle school next year!  Where has the time gone?

After the sixth grade celebration, I went to Zach's class where they did a reading and awards were presented and then a video of snapshots taken through the year was shown.  Zach received several awards based on his grade point average in his class.  He received the Math Achievement Award, Reading Award, Science Achievement Award, the Accelerated Reader High Point Earner Award and his class voted him the Best Boy Reader.
