This is the story of Amara’s last week in 3rd grade. You should read all about Monday and the Honor Roll Ceremony; Tuesday and learning to knit; and Wednesday’s End of Year Party if you haven’t already.
Thursday was their last day of school and as always, it was crazy hair day! Jenna had crimped Amara’s hair and sprayed it with all sorts of colors. I told her it reminded me of the circus afro wig. It was a blast taking her to school and seeing all the different hair-dos. Again, the photos I wish I could share!
For the last day of school the Kona Ice truck was coming. Any student who had been on honor roll would get a free Kona Ice. The rest of the students could purchase them for $2. This had been such a huge hit when they had done it for Honor Roll the last time. There was another secret! Jenna wasn’t over being sick but she was feeling better and she went to the classroom to tell them goodbye and to announce she was buying each of them a Kona Ice! The cheers went up in the class!
The sun had come out and it was a beautiful afternoon to say good-bye until the fall and to enjoy a special treat. I am so glad I was there to enjoy all the fun of this week!
We thought it couldn’t get any better. We were wrong. As we climbed into the car to go home, Amara announced yet another award! She won the AR award for the 3rd grade. AR is the Accelerated Reading program. You get points for the number of books and reports you complete. She was very proud of being the number one reader in her class.
Look out Fourth Grade!
