Yesterday Morning the middle school had it's 6-7 Grade Awards. We had gotten a letter that our son would be receiving an award, however, we did not know what for. We never told Zach that we even got the letter, that Dad took the day off from work, or even that we were coming! Even as Zach walked right passed us coming into the auditorium, he did not see us. The night before, he said to us, "all we really are doing tomorrow is the awards ceremony.""Oh really", I told him. "Do you think we should come?" He quickly got defensive and said it was too late to find out if parents can come to the ceremony. Little did he know. We were pleasantly surprised and so excited for him, to not only receive 1 award, but 4. First he got the perfect attendance award. Then came a scholarship award for his 94 average for the year! Wow... that wasn't enough, he got a science award for achievement, then an award and medal for continental Mathematics league(I don't know if this is something we are supposed to know about or not).
With the school year starting off with living 45 minutes away, and getting up very early to drive to school, plus just moving across country, I must say we are beyond proud of Zach and his accomplishments! Great Job Zach!
