Great Grade 8 Graduation


If you have been reading my blog you already know that my daughter Jade graduated from Grade 8 this year. She told us that she was picked to be Valedictorian. What a proud moment for Mom and Dad!! Well she topped that at the graduation ceremony!
The ceremony started.... and the procession started walking in.....the Master and Mistress of Ceremonies welcomed everyone to the Grade 8 graduation.
Mr. Sales presented all of the students with their diplomas.
Once all the diplomas were presented they moved on to presenting the two other awards available to students.
One award was the Principal's award. This award is given to the student who is always willing to help, goes above and beyond the call of duty, thinks of others before themselves, and shows initiative and leadership. This award was presented to My Jade!!! This picture shows her receiving the plaque from her Principal.
The second award available was the academic award. This award is given to the male and female student who have achieved the highest marks in the class. The student also completes more work than is expected.
This award was presented to My Jade too!
We are so very proud of her. She set goals for herself at the beginning of the year and she never stopped working until she reached those goals.
She really is who I want to be when I grow up!!!
Chow for now,
Jacqui

oh, that's so wonderful! I'm showing this to my Serena bean so she can see what she too could accomplish in the next few years if she sets her heart on a goal!

Congrats to Jade (and hugs to her momma)
