Joel receives special school award June 2, 2016

We just had to show this.

Joel receives the special, 6th grade “Dawn Bowker Award” given for excellence in character, integrity, and citizenship.  Only one individual in the 6th grade, one in the 7th grade and one in the 8th grade at his school can receive it, for the entire school year.  Knowing that he would be away next week (when the other two are given) his wonderful teacher organized a presentation with his other 6th grade classes and teachers so, “he could receive it in front of his peers”.  She called us earlier in the week to let us know and ensure we could be there.

We are so proud of him.  He had no idea it was going to happen  🙂

After that we took him to get a treat, anything he wanted> “a cheeseburger, fries and EXTRA LARGE cookie-dough Blizzard”.  Ugh!  (see pics below)
