His first year at Christian Brothers was not easy! Many, many nights he was up late, once or twice until the wee hours. Homework was a bear. Kevin would come home from school, ride his bike a little while, get a snack and then get right to it. A short break for dinner and he was back at it again. He was so discouraged when he would just miss honor roll by the slightest each quarter. Finally he made it in the 4th, along with an award for Spanish. Way to go Kevin! But all that hard work truly paid off in his standardized test scores. He would rather have remained at his old school, but I think we made the right choice. The all-male faculty, P. E. every day, intramural sports and activities, and the advanced curriculum all make for a great boy's middle school. One more year at CBS and there's no doubt he will be well-prepared for high school.
Here's my page, using a photo taken by one of the Brothers. I wish his teacher didn't have his back turned, but it's a pretty good shot of Kevin receiving his awards.
I started with a sheet of BasicGrey's Clippings and piled on a few scraps, ending with an old walnut-inked tag, a Clippings sticker and snippet, and wood veneer "potty people" from Studio Calico. The background paper had a nice little spot for a stamped title, so that's what I did! Well Done!
