Last Day of 7th Grade and P.R.I.D.E. Award

Isabelle finished up seventh grade at Jackson Middle School! It was a very eventful year, with football and basketball cheerleading, choir, sign language club and the school play. She was also on the Honor Roll each quarter (all A's and B's in her classes). It was also a pretty big year as Isabelle seemed to have grown immensely! She started wearing makeup and contacts instead of glasses.

The first day of 7th grade:

The last day of 7th grade:

The middle school holds an awards assembly on the last day of school. They give out P.R.I.D.E. awards as well as awards for perfect attendance, straight A's, physical fitness (score top 20% in fitness tests) and an Archie Griffith award for athletes.

I received a call from Isabelle's Language Arts teachers, Mrs. Rutan, letting me know that she chose Izzy to receive a P.R.I.D.E. award! These awards are given to students who excel in class, not only with good grades, but also serve as roll models to their peers. Mrs. Rutan was really impressed with Izzy and had many good things to say about her. These awards are kept a secret from the students until the day of the awards.

Parker and I got to attend this awards celebration and Isabelle was quite surprised to see us there!

Isabelle received a drawstring bag with the logo above, and a card from Mrs. Rutan at the assembly:

Next school year, Isabelle will again be a cheerleader for football (she chose not to cheer for basketball again), in symphonic choir (a choir that goes to competitions) and she made show choir! She is very excited about all three of these accomplishments!

Congratulations to Izzy!!!
