Wednesday June 10th was the last day of school for the kiddos.
We went to end of year ceremonies at both schools – took about 3.5hrs total…. sigh
I really don’t look forward to these events, most of the awards are kind of bogus awards for silly things.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m VERY proud of my kids and they have done VERY well.
And I know some of them makes the kids feel good about themselves, but in 4th grade and now 7th grade…..?? they don’t need THAT many awards.
Academics is one thing, but in 4th grade they got karate belts for each new song they learned, so EACH kid got a certificate, ranging from white belt to black belt. I can see maybe honoring the black belt kids. But they can’t leave out anyone I guess.
Yet you don’t see the P.E teacher give out awards for the fastest runner or who can do the most push ups, because they would only be ONE person and THAT would be so unfair, right?
When I was in school it wasn’t like that at all, maybe that’s just Denmark, but I think it’s just the world today.
Makes me think of this “The incredibles clip”
