Sorry for the late post, it's only now that I find the time and the mood to create this post. We badly need additional helper at home before my ML finally ends...
My little girl graduated from preschool last March 23. The ceremony lasted for less than an hour since it was made exclusive for preschool while the elementary and high school students had their own on a different day. Overall, it was short & sweet and very organized, nobody could come close to take photos during the program. I could feel the traditional way of kid's discipline, the kind that I think kids nowadays need to make them tougher to face real life challenges in the future.
One thing I would like to comment about SJA school is that they are very conservative in giving recognition. During the ceremony, only the 1st and 2nd honors were called upon the stage and parents were not asked to give the medal to their child. Academic awards were simply given to the student during graduation practice. No special awards at all, unlike the neighboring school that gives award to all of its students (which I also don't prefer since it defeats the purpose). I am not a stage mom nor someone who expects an award for my child. But I think, students who did very well deserve that form of recognition with their supportive parents or guardian. That's the only concern that I have. I know, no school is perfect and despite of its flaw, I do like the teaching and values inculcated to their students.
Reese, congratulations!!! Good job anak in finishing preschool and to our surprise, getting an award. We know all along that your reading skill is better than kids your age. We will always be proud of you, with or without it. :)
We had our little celebration afterwards at Robinson's Magnolia Ice Cream House.
