This blog post contains the obnoxious rantings of a very proud to the point of bragging parent. Mom can't control herself, so if you find this type of ranting to be too much...just skip reading today!
Hi everyone and happy Thursday! Last night was Holden's SIXTH GRADE HONORS NIGHT and he made us all so proud!!!
Here he is with proud Mom (OMG...she had HEELS on too!)
The entire sixth grade was honored for all of their achievements...academic, artistic, athletic, attendance and citizenship!
Do you see Holden in the white shirt and tie? This was the presentation of the Jr. Beta awards.
Here is Holden posing with his teacher, Miss Schellinger!
She has been such a GREAT teacher for Holden because she really challenged him this year and made him WORK for his good grades. PERFECT prep for Middle School next year! She also made learning a lot of fun for the whole class and Holden has declared that she is his new "alltime favorite teacher"! Wow...that's a big honor!
Here is Holden posing with some of his "besties"....
You've already met Seth (he's Maggie's human brother) and then there's Parker, who he's been friends with since first grade!
Here he is with his buddy, Kain
CONGRATS to all of you gentlemen!
All in all...Holden brought home the following honors:
President's Outstanding Academic Achievement Award (signed by President Obama!),
Band Award for participating in the Middle School band program (he made the HONORS BAND for next year too!),
Athletic Award for participation on the school Basketball Team,
Academic Spell Bowl Award,
and an award for his membership in Jr. Beta
I got to personally kiss/congratulate Holden when he got home (stoooopid "no dogs in school" rule again!).
WAY TO GO HOLDEN!!!! We're SO SO SO PROUD of you!!!!
