This must have been Mckell's lucky weekend. She got one award after another. It started on Friday, with the school awards assembly. Mckell was one of several students who received an award. Her award was for being a wonderful student and for being a classroom friend to all. We are so proud of her!
As part of Mckell's award, she got a certificate, a book, and a fun wristband.
Then on Saturday, Mckell's first grade won first place for the video they made for the Cammi Awards. Their video was called "We've got it covered". It was a drug free video, and she was so excited that they won first place.
But her lucky streak didn't end there. On Monday, the school had their Reflections assembly and Mckell's artwork was chosen out of a big group of kids to move on to council level. In fact, hers was one of two chosen out of 20 or so other entries to move on. She was sooooo excited. Everyone got a fun medal with their names on it for participating in the Reflections contest, as well as a certificate, and a free pass to Kangaroo Zoo. But those lucky few, whose work was chosen to move on to council level, also received a trophy with their names on it.
She was so proud of her trophy! It is sitting on our mantle, and anytime someone comes to our house she takes them over and shows them her trophy :) And I think Hunter was secretly a little jealous that Mckell go t a medal and a trophy. I tried my hardest to get him to do something for the reflections contest, but he just kept saying "Not Interested" lol. But as soon as he got home from school after the awards assembly, he informed me that next year he was going to do somthing really cool for the reflections contest :)
