Last Day of First Grade!
As of today, we officially have a 2nd Grader! Wow. What a year! First grade was the first year for Cannon to be at school all day, and the first year to eat lunch at school, and his first year of Chinese Immersion. He spent half of his day learning in English, and the other half learning only in Chinese. We really loved his teachers this year, and he flourished! He made leaps and bounds in math and reading levels, and he learned another language without even realizing it!
I am sad to leave these teachers behind, but we are excited about the year to come.
This was also the last year for Cannon to ride the bus to school. I made sure to snap a picture of his last time jumping off the bus after school. And I had a little tear! He loves riding the bus! Our school boundaries got changed, and our neighborhood will be going to another school. We will be permitting back to the same school, to stay in the Chinese Program. So, he'll be hitching a ride with Mom or Dad from now on!
Harper and I met him at the bus stop with cheers... and an air horn! I think this may be the last time for that too, because he was pretty embarrassed! Hee heeee!! Cannon is sooo much like his dad, a no-nonsense kind of guy!
To celebrate, we went to lunch. Cannon chose Training Table. And a round of root beer floats. Cheers!
And to top it all off, a PERFECT report card! Highest marks all around! I don't think he realizes what a big deal this is! I hope these kind of report cards continue to come home every time!
I hope he never loses his love of learning and reading!
WAY TO GO, CANNON! A Graduate of First Grade, you did it! We love you and are so very proud of you!!
