Christmas Programs (12/18)
...and again in Greenville at “Toys R Us” – with Geoffrey the Giraffe!
E’s End-of-the-Year Program (12/20)
She’d actually been aiming for this achievement since early March (when the school year begins here) and had worked hard academically all year, but we’d figured that her “absences” (due to our trip) would make it impossible. In the end, however, her academic performance (in equivalent areas) at BJA – combined with her standardized test scores (the Iowa Assessments required to enroll at BJA) – more than made up for any “absences” from school here.
She did very well in that one month of study in what was a totally new environment for her, and it reflected well on the academic preparation she has received from the school here, especially in this past year with Nibia, the fifth-grade teacher.
