Jackson's Last Day of School

What a great year for Jackson!  He came into the school year barely knowing his letters and numbers and is leaving a very proficient reader and mathematician.  He started the school year dreading school and ends the year with no dread of school.  This last 9 weeks, he really hit his stride.  Great progress! 

He still had a few hiccups here and there-- a periodic check on his behavior chart instead of a smiley face, but overall, this year was a success!  His teacher deserves major kudos. 

This extra year should set him up for success when he goes to kindergarten at the public school in the Fall.  That was the goal of this year-- giving him the confidence and ability to hit the ground running. 

When I asked Jackson how he felt about the last day today, he summed up my feelings very well -- "Happy but a little sad too". 

Jackson was ready for his last day pool party!
