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!
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.)
