Our Citizen Of The Month!

June 4, 2012
Each week at school they award a Citizen of the Week award.  Both Kermit and Miss Piggy earned their award during the year!  You get a paper award given to you in the classroom by the principal. 

They also give our a Citizen of the Month award and this is HUGE!!!  It is awarded in an assembly in front of the school.  Parents are invited to attend, but we are hidden away in a room so the students don't see who the parents are and then figure out who has won the award for the month.  We got a phone call inviting us to come watch Miss Piggy be awarded Citizen of the Month and we were so excited, I'm not sure how we kept it a secret! 

The principal at our school is beyond amazing.  She is so actively involved in the students academic career, she serves them lunch and then sits with them to eat her own lunch!  She was the one to award the Citizens of the Month and she suprised us by breaking out in song for some of the awards!  The creative teachers would write speaches to song and the principal actually sang the words.  It was so much fun. 

Mis Piggy's award was not to a song however, it was a poem!

Some would say we have saved the best for last. 
She certainly has ended this year with a blast.
As warm breezes blow and rain clouds depart,
She keeps on working with all of her heart.
While others might daydream of the summer ahead,
She remains focused on being a good citizen instead.
With kindness and friendship,
She helps those in need,
I know I can always count on her to do a good deed.
When the year is over and all is said and done
She'll feel proud of herself and just relax in the sun!
 When she turned around she was BEET red!  It was cute!

That afternoon, she got to leave campus and go to lunch at a local pizza restaurant with her principal.  Her principal asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and she told her "A McDonalds worker".  Later I spoke with the principal and she was impressed with her answer because other kids answers were not realistic and Miss Piggy's was an answer that was realistic.  Miss Piggy later told us she was embarrassed by her answer, that she really wants to be an art teacher.  No matter what she does, she'll be great!
