The trio's school had some really exciting news a few weeks ago. County-wide, their school was one of only three to receive an "A" for their performance on standardized testing. This is a smaller school, and over the past three years, many resources have been removed and/or diverted to other schools. Needless to say, everyone was thrilled to receive such favorable results in spite of diminished resources.
To celebrate, our school had popcorn and a movie one Friday afternoon, following by a dance party in the gym. Plus, their principal gave them the following Monday off. Granted, that day was scheduled as a professional development day, but the cheers from students was thunderous.
Congratulations to such an awesome group!
