A Little Bragging

Gonna brag on my kids for a moment.

We just go their last report cards and CRCT test scores in the mail the other day.  (One kid was finishing 3rd grade and one 1st, in case you don't know/forgot). They did great.  They both got straight A's.  Actually it was straight 3's, but that's our county equivalent of an A.  On a side note, I am curious as to when they start making letter grades.  I thought maybe 3rd, but nope. 

Anyway, both girls also did great on the CRCT.  (The CRCT is the standardized test the kids take in the state of Georgia).  My oldest was one missed question from a perfect score in Math (she did not get that from me), and one missed question from a perfect score in Reading (maybe she got that one from me).  She also exceeded the standard in Language Arts and Science. 

My middle child who took a "practice" version of the test also did really well.  Since her version was only practice (first grade is not required to take the CRCT but our school has the kids take it so they will not be totally unfamiliar with it when they get to a grade when it is required), her results were not quite as specific.  However, she did exceed the standard in both Reading and Language Arts and was just a few points away from exceeding the standard in Math. 

We are very proud of both of them.  We have been very blessed as a family that so far, school has not been a struggle for anyone.  I know we have a long way to go and that may change some, but I think we are off to a pretty good start.

This picture was taken on the last day of school.
