When I picked Ian up from school today he was so excited and proud. A couple of weeks ago he participated in a writing contest at school and he found out today that he was the winner out of all four kindergarten classes! He received a book and a red ribbon from the principal to celebrate his accomplishment and they announced his name over the intercom. They were asked to write about what they wanted to learn this year and how they would achieve their goal. Ian said that he wanted to learn to read and that his teacher, Ms. Norris, would help him.
