Our big boy is finished with first grade! He's had such an amazing year, and we've been blessed with an amazing teacher that Jackson adores. Mrs. Hicks was the perfect teacher for Jackson for first grade, and we are going to miss her so much next year. I even cried when writing out her thank you card because she meant so much to us! She has a heart of gold, and a passion for teaching these little kids. We couldn't have been happier with her!
Jackson ended the year with making all A's and only 1 B the entire year! Whoo-hooo! He went from reading on a 0.4 AR level to a 2.5, and his DIBELS scores were through the roof! He is well prepared for second grade, and we are so proud of out boy!
Enjoy the pictures from Awards Day!
