Damaris' 4th Grade Awards Ceremony

As most everyone knows, I homeschooled Damaris for 4.5 years. We put her into public school in November of last year so we could help her adjust before we relocate to Lubbock where she will also be attending public school. It's been a difficult adjustment not only for Damaris, but also for Russ & I. The rewards of how Damaris has adjusted were shown today.

I couldn't be a prouder mom! Last week, we received notice that Damaris was receiving some awards at school today. Of course, Russ & I attended.

The first award Damaris received was for the outstanding achievement in 4th grade music by a girl.

The second award Damaris received was for "A" Honor Roll.

The third award Damaris received was for outstanding achievement in reading. She was one of two to receive this award in her class.

The final award Damaris received was the most prestigious and highest award that could be received. It was for outstanding citizenship by a girl in her class.

Here is a picture of Damaris and her teacher Mrs. Cheek.

Thanks to each of you who have prayed for and with us and journeyed with us on this new experience for us all. We are so blessed to have each of you as a part of our lives.

    Damaris, your smile shows how happy you are. We're so very proud of you! You did a great job! Keep it up next year and in the years to come! God has great things in store for you! We love you! G Pa and B Ma Wolfe

  6. Damaris, besides making your Mother, Father and all the rest of us proud, you have made yourself proud. My Dear wonderful Damaris, you will exceed in every thing that you do in life. Remember, God is with you and with God all things are possible. Remember you are such a special youn lady.

  7. CC: do they offer Spanish classes at Damaris' current school? or at most schools in TX? I noticed how many Hispanic children there were. I am sure it's quite useful there.

    I love how Damaris looks like she's having a difficult time at one point holding on to so many awards! Yay Damaris!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!! On to 5th grade :o)

  8. @Amy - there were 5 fourth grade teachers at Damaris' school, 3 of the teachers were part of the block that Damaris was in & they kids rotated to all 3 teachers; the other 2 teachers were in another block and that block taught some in English & some in Spanish; I'm pretty sure most of the schools offer Spanish; Damaris did 2 years of Spanish when I was homeschooling her, but didn't do any this year
