So…I get this notice from the school that Jason and I have to attend this function for outgoing 6th graders. Admist the 22nd anniversary, Jeff’s graduation the significance of this ceremony was lost to me…we get all geared up to go only to find that it’s the 6th & 8th grade recognition night for Academic Excellence. It was very much like a graduation…it was nice to see all the kids in Elkhart Community Schools who are excelling. It was also nice that I was able to see my niece walk across the stage after my son. He achieved this award by having higher than a 3.5 grade point average his entire elementary “career”. I am blessed to have such an amazing son.
