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.:)

Good and bad news

 I’m sharing good news and some bad news today. The good news is that my daughter’s effort to get a better grade has paid off.  She is included in the list of Achievers for the second grading period. A student should have an average grade of 91 percent to be included in the A-list. Her grades especially in English and Math subjects have improved a lot. I owe it to her self-determination. And now the bad news, my son got a low grade in Math as in real low. It is disappointing. He needs a tutor but we can’t afford to hire one at the moment. Maybe I should really take time off from my online activity to devote more time for my son’s studies. They will have their monthly test on Thursday and Friday. I should start browsing my son’s book today. But I have one minor concern, I’m not good at Math especially fraction how will I teach him then? Waah!

Vacation is almost over

My kids worry that they might be late for enrolment as we have yet to visit the school to register. If I may recall, we have already enroled, completed our book requirements and school supplies during the same period last year.

I remember paying only P800 for the textbook because each of them was given a P2,500 discount on textbooks as part of the gift given to students who received the Harvest of Achievers Award. We were then able to save a total of P5,000 on textbooks. 
This year only one of them will avail the P2,500 discount. Still, we are thankful for the discount. 
With barely two weeks before the opening of classes next month, I just hope I would be able to complete the important things they need in school. 
School time also means sleeping and getting up early as both are afraid to come to school late on the first day of class.  And for Mommy, maybe lesser time in front of the computer (sigh).
