Sam came home from school on Friday and presented us with an award that he had received at his 3-6 assembly. It was one of those rare awards from the Assistant Principal, one my boys have never been recipients of. It was the Assistant Principal's Award : For excellence in Improvement and Application - Great improvement in completing tasks within time frames.
Sam has been having trouble finishing tasks (the boring ones) in class so we've been working on trying to focus and complete things at school and home. The other week we received a note home from the teacher telling us he has been trying really hard in class and had been finishing his work. It was really lovely of his teachers to let us know that he was trying hard and improving. But it really makes the children feel special when they receive awards in front of the school for their hard work. Even though Sam doesn't really think he's been doing anything different, we know & his teachers know he is a wonderful boy who will try his best and has such a lovely spirit. He's been growing up alot lately and has been responsible and caring to his whole family. I think you're a keeper Sam, one of my treasures.
