I got to attend an awards assembly yesterday for Mia's class. Mia received two awards. The first one was voted on by the class and it was the great writer award. The class also designed a certificate for her. I love that her teacher is always looking for ways to help the kids build each other up, instead of tear them down.
The second award she received is the "Nerds Award". The award says, "For your intelligence and hard work in all areas." She was thrilled and she received a box of Nerds to go with it.
