SO Incredibly Proud!

Today, at my son's school they had their annual "Character Counts" assembly. They pick 1-2 students from each class that exhibit the 6 Pillars of Strength, which are:

  • Trustworthiness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Citizenship

There were about 20 or so kids in all being honored today and my son was one of them! Each of the teachers did a little write-up about each child and why they thought they should be recognized and the bit about Alex by his teacher was so sweet. I'm going to try to see if she will email it to me so I can scrap it. I was able to get a few pictures but he was standing in the back so it was really hard to see him. I got some afterwards with his certificate.

My 1st grader was also recognized by his teacher with a special ribbon. In addition, to honoring the students who exhibit all 6 pillars they also recognize 1 child from each GRADE (6 total) who exhibit one pillar and my 6 yr old got the ribbon for being a Caring person from his teacher.

It was all very cool and I can't wait to scrap it.
