Ashton has just completed his first nine weeks of kindergarten!! Can you believe it?!?! He got his first report card yesterday. I can't believe that its that time already. He did really good on his scores for the first time around. We have a couple of things that we need to practice on over fall break, but for the most part I think he is where he needs to be for right now. :-) Alex and I are both very proud of him!
With his first report card yesterday came his ONE & ONLY fundraiser for the year. The school is doing a "read-a-thon" to raise money. All the money they raise will go directly to the school and they've set a goal of 60,000 and $25,000. Ashton has gotten one sponsor so far and hopefully we will get some more in the coming weeks. We have until November 3rd. :-) They have some really cool prizes being offered for each level of earnings. I thought of a few that were coo, but he told me he was going for the scooter! He has to raise $500 in order to get that! Anyone want to donate?!?! :p
Today, Alex and I were able to go to the kindergarten awards day and watch Ashton get his very first award. We were incredibly proud of him!!! Ashton received the Cougar Award in his class!! That is a super big deal and we're very excited for him. He also got a free dinner at the "green roof place" aka Outback for having perfect attendance this nine week period. YAY Ashton!!!
I think Ashton might have been a LITTLE excited about his award since he did RUN to get it!
Here is Ashton and his super sweet teacher, Mrs. Dawn! He loves her to death.
