End of 1st Grade Awards

First grade finished on Thursday last week. Very proud of Hudson for receiving several end of year awards.

Skittles Award for bringing the gift of Ingenuity to the class. Mrs. Phan spoke highly of Hudson's clever, original and inventive ideas. (I was just happy it wasn't the "Verbose" award for talking too much in class.)

Hudson was one of four students in his class to earn his Math Super Star award. He earned this by doing extra math homework each week that introduced more advanced concepts than what the class was doing in the normal curriculum. (I have to admit some weeks this was viewed as fun and some weeks as a major drag, but he did it enough to earn the award.)

And finally an end of year recognition for representing the six character traits that the school expects each student to model. While I think all the kids get this one, I really appreciate what Bee Cave Elementary does throughout the year to teach and model these - trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.

1st Grade Class Picture

I'm about two months delinquent in publishing this, but here is Hudson's class picture. Mrs. Phan has been a fantastic teacher for Hudson - the perfect combo of firm structure delivered with a very soft tone and voice.
