Today was the last day of school which means it was Josiah's last day of elementary...next year is Middle School...I'm excited for him, but it's hard for me to believe he's done with elementary already...
Anyway, they had an awards ceremony today. We were so proud to see what he was awarded! He was nominated to be a Student Ambassador this year for Freedom Elementary and so they had those kids stand to be recognized for their leadership at Freedom throughout the school year.
Then they started handing out awards...
National Physical Fitness Award
Presidential Gold Award for Excellence
-- To earn this award he needed to maintain at least a 3.5 GPA and 85% average or higher on standardized testing throughout their elementary years.
Holding up his Presidential Gold Award for Excellence. We were invited to go to the ceremony and we knew ahead of time that he would be honored with either the Silver (maintained 3.5 GPA throughout elementary) or Gold (GPA and standardized test score results throughout elementary) but they told us it would be a surprise that day which award they were given. We were so proud either way, but he told us as they were calling the Silver winners he was really hoping they wouldn't say his name. :)
Way to make the most of your elementary years...I pray you would continue to strive to do your best in Middle School as well. We love you and couldn't be more proud!!
