Parent teacher conferences were this week. Maddie and Whit were so impressive with their Yale and Harvard sweatshirts. They have high aspirations…can’t blame them! Whitney is in advanced honors math, which is so far beyond me that I really can’t help her all that much. They practice logic on levels that I am afraid would take me hours to unravel. . With her outgoing, bubbly personality, strong wit, sense of humor, etc, one would never guess that she is such a math and logic whiz. Grades are super important to her. She is doing phenomenally well her 1st semester of middle school.
Maddie is an extremely strong student across the board. She is getting all A’s at this point, and secretly loves learning. She is a very strong leader according to her teachers. One after the other talked about how she helps others and they depend on her to help interpret into tween language what the teacher just said.
The general consensus on both Maddie and Whit was: They are strong leaders, have strong opinions, are helpful and kind, and hard workers. I am so proud of them.
We had Belle’s conference this week too. Her teacher said that she is the most helpful student in class. She always helps the kids who have special needs. She LOVES them, protects them, and loves to look out for them. She is doing an amazing job at reading, and her strong suit is math. She loves numbers. Belle is also quite an artist. I joke with her all the time that I will write books and she can illustrate them. I honestly can see that happening some day in the future.
One common theme between all three girls is their strong verbal skills. Apparently they have the gift of gab, which they are learning to use in moderation.
I am so thankful for the school district we live in, the schools our girls attend, and the teachers that they have. We are so blessed, and it is so neat for us as parents to sit back and watch them thrive in these environments. Rob and I are saving our pennies for those ivy league schools…and praying for scholarships.
