Accelerated Reader Awards ~ 2nd Grade

AR Rewards time once again!

It was by invitation only once again, which is understandable b/c the entire school (CDC, K-5th) fills the bleachers on either side, which only allows for limited space in the middle of the gym floor for parents/grandparents.

Once again, they had an awesome selection of goodies; drones, VR cameras, Pie in the Face games, emoji pillows, smart watches, scooters and so on.

McKayla was 2nd place in her GRADE with 188.6 points (up from 3rd in 1st grade)! 1st place was her "boyfriend", R, who had 220 points!

Decisions, decisions
Ring around the toys?

I think McKayla had an item picked out already but was trying to be polite at first but when she knew she shouldn't wait any longer, she made a bee-line for......

An emoji pillow!

Can't you tell by the grin on this girls face how happy she is?! She told us that she was going to put this on her bed and as soon as she got home, she was going to kick back and read her books and play on her phone. 😀

Her teacher told her after the awards ceremony that if she applied herself the full school year like she did starting in January (where she earned 54.6 points!), she could see her easily reaching 1st in her grade next year. That means Mommy and Daddy will buckle down and take her to Family Reading nights on Tues and Thurs to help her reach her goal........if she can help us remember. Haha

(A 5th grader earned 1,000 pts and won a bicycle and a trophy! McKayla's eyes were HUGE when she saw that and I could see her little mind working out how she could reach that goal.)

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:
------------------------------------------------------------------------ FAWN TO FAWN OR BRINDLE ONLY
Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
