So proud of my little student of the month! He has had a bit of a difficult time adjusting to classroom life with 24 kids vs. 10 last year...add to that our move right before school started, and a new (relatively) huge school, and he had some pretty good reasons. But, he has pulled out of it and is starting to enjoy school again. The most exciting part of getting student of the month for him was the pizza and cupcakes that he got to have with the principal! :)
Here is what his teacher wrote about him (and he was the only first-grader out of 3 classes!):
"The first grade team selects Preston as student of the month for January.
Preston has an inquiring mind. He demonstrates curiosity about learning and thinks of a variety of ways to solve problems. He explores ideas and articulates his thinking processes. Preston is responsible and determined student. He acts with integrity, honesty, caring, kindness, and respect. He is a friend to all."
