Field Trip, Awards Day & Graduation

Banks has been super busy during these last two days! Yesterday the Kindergarten classes went {along with PreK, 1st and 2nd Grades} to the Huntsville Botanical Garden. A couple of teacher friends emailed me these pictures:
They said it was wonderful! Hopefully we can make it back one day this summer.
Today was Awards Day. Here he is accepting his Awards from Ms. Lowery:
He was awarded the following: Math Award {for being able to count to 100 by 1's, 5's & 10's}, a Computer Achievement Award {for Great Technology Skills}, a High-Flying Success Award {for DIBELS Benchmark in ALL areas} and a Star Reader Award {for reading 180 books this year}.
Tonight we were back at school for their Graduation Program - Look What We Can Do!

They sang several songs and then received their diplomas from Ms. Lowery and Ms. Davis:
After his program, we let him pick where we went for dinner. Not surprisingly, he picked the Mexican restaruant down the street! Afterwards he shared this special dessert {a treat from Nanny Nan} with us:
Banks - I can't believe your Kindergarten year is almost over...it has truly FLOWN by! I know you are going to be just as sucessful in 1st Grade at your new school! Only 4 more days of being a Kindergartener!
