Proud Parent Moment

We had a very proud parent moment today at our house! Tiaree got a package from her school in the mail today. It was a letter from her principal and a certificate from the Utah State Office of Education. Here is what her letter said:
"Dear Tiaree McGee,
Congratulations on your outstanding academic achievement! The enclosed certificate is your recognition for placing in the top ten percent nationally on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills in the area(s) listed for the 2008-2009 school year. This signifies the effort you extend each day as a student at Falcon Ridge Elementary.

I challenge you to continue to set goals, work hard, and strive to do your very best. This will help prepare you for a successful future. I am extremely proud of you.

Best Regards,
Karen Thomson

Yay for Tiaree! These are the areas she tested in the top %10: Reading, Science, Language, Social Studies, Core Total and Total Composite. She has a nice certificate signed by her principal the State Superintendent and the Chair of the Utah State Board of Education! I am so dang proud of her! Last week's parent teacher conferences were really good and her teacher showed us her scores, but I had no idea she was in the top %10 NATIONALLY!!!

Jarik had a wonderful PTC too! He is reading way above grade level and understanding everything he reads. He is passing off his addition and subtraction facts too. I loved going to PTC this year because they have been so good. Nothing but good to report. Well it's always been that way with my kids and I love that!! :) I love having bragging rights!! LOL!!
