Macy - Responsible Student of the Quarter
Delaney - Media Student of the Quarter
4 times a year, Laurel Park recognizes several students in each class for their efforts in each of several categories. Honestly, it's getting to be a bit much but we dutifully show up and snap a few pictures to commemorate their accomplishments.
Delaney is convinced she received the Media award because she checks out and returns so many books. On the flip side, Macy is completely confounded as to why she was named the Responsible student. She told me she can't remember anything she did that was responsible. I told her it probably wasn't just one thing but the fact that she has been demonstrating responsibility consistently over the past several weeks. I think these things would be a lot more meaningful if the kids were told why he or she is being recognized.
