The last day of school.
The school year has been a great success for both Melody and Malcolm. For Melody, although it was a bit of a rocky start she did very well with the adjustment of starting school. Here's an excerpt from her report card: "Melody had a very successful Kindergarten year. She learned so much and is well prepared for Grade One. Melody says the most important thing that she learned in Kindergarten was to count to 100 because 'some people don't know how'. Melody was most proud of the work that she did in writing because "I used to not know how to write'. We had many varied experiences during the Kindergarten year. On behalf of the family, we'd like to thank Mrs. B for her efforts this year. It's certainly been a great experience for our daughter. Also, despite all our homework woes, Malcolm did really great too. We're very proud of him. In fact, at the end of the year he was one of the kids chosen to receive both the Citizenship and Effort awards in his class. Here he his being recognized at the end of the year assembly. Mrs. Moy: Here's an excerpt from Malcolm's report card: "Malcolm has had a successful year in grade three and a very busy third term. He enthusiastically participated in many activities including: Jane's Walk, the Burnaby Village Museum field trip, and the Mad Science Workshop. Malcolm is one of the first students to lend a hand without being asked; it is common to see him helping a teacher tidy up, simply for the sake of being kind. He feels that his greatest achievement this year was, "reading because now I am great at reading". Malcolm states that his greatest challenge thi year was, "math because it was hard". Here's a good comparison, between the first day of school and the last day:
