Another day, another ceremony. Today was the Kitty Ward Elementary 1st Grade Award Ceremony. Etta planned to look her best so she picked out a cute dress and wanted me to curl her hair. Here she is before leaving for school.
There are seven first grade classes with anywhere from 19 to 25 students so you can imagine how long it took to get through them all. We were fortunate that Etta's class went first! Since our last name happens to be at the end of the alphabet she was one of that last to get called up. Mrs. Carley gave Etta the Gold President's Award for Educational Excellence, meaning she has straight A's! She was also given an award for demonstrating Responsibility throughout the year.

When I was picking up Etta at the end of the day she rushed over and told me that Mrs. Carley forgot to announce another award she earned, the ST Math award. ST Math is a computer program with math problems that she's been working on at home. She was pretty excited because she said only a handful of boys in the first grade got it and she was the only girl to get it.
Eric and I are most proud of her straight A's. She's a hard worker and enjoys doing well in school. Let's hope she keeps it up!
