At Avery’s school every month three kids from each class get awarded “The Principal’s Handshake.” By the end of the year every kid will end up receiving this award. I feel that the award isn’t exactly earned, since every kid gets one.
Avery was very excited to report that she got “Principal’s Handshake” for the month of October- only the 2nd month these were awarded. All of the 2nd graders had their pictures taken with the principal, a certificate and a prize. She picked out the book The Worst Best Christmas Pageant Ever. A very good choice in my opinion. We saw the play last Christmas in Boise. She started reading it the night she got it. Love that she enjoys reading so much.
