Moving Up Day

Official school vacation at my kids’ school started last March 25 for high school and March 26 for elementary students. Both dates marked the most awaited event for students, their respective Recognition Day.

Naomi received the Model Citizen Award for maintaining marks not lower than B in the lists of behavioural assets such as Self, Interpersonal, and Work Habits inside the classroom.

Khalil, on the other hand, was awarded three certificates. I have posted about it here.

Hubby and I are proud parents because their efforts for the past 10 months have been rewarded.

This year, none of the two kids made it to the GLS Harvest of Achievers where the general average should be 91 percent or higher. They felt a little disappointed at first, but we assured them that we are very proud of them whatever award they get this year.

I wish to post our pictures taken during Recognition Day, but I’m having difficulty inserting image. I promise to post it next time.

Anyway, share your unforgettable moving up day story with us at Mommy Moments.

Award and certificates

Naomi’s final grade was short of .3 percent to qualify for the elusive Harvest of Achievers Award. But according to her adviser, she remains in the top three among the honor students in her class. She got an average of 90.97. The grade to qualify to receive the Achievers medal is 91 percent. Sayang noh? My daughter is disappointed at first, but she’s not the kind who will sulk the whole time. She promised us to do better next school year.

She got a Model Citizen Award for her performance in her class. And just after doing my business at the registration office, I saw the copy of their school paper where two of her poems were published.

Khalil didn’t make it to the Harvest of Achievers as well, but he received three certificates during Recognition Day. 

With or without an award, I’m still happy for my kids because I know they did their best without Mommy’s help.

Congratulations kids. Pagbutihin pa next year ha.:)
