Schools offer awards for many things including academic and sports achievement. These categories can be significant in the later stages of education. But in elementary school we think a citizenship award speaks volumes about the child and his/her potential. We’re not just saying that because Benjamin won a citizenship award but …. that might have something to do with it.
Ben is an average student at this stage (2nd grade) in his academic career. His ADHD is a bit of a problem but he’s making progress and the staff at Crown Valley Elementary School are terrific partners. Here we see Ben in a quiet study mode …. ooops, that looks like an i-Pad ….. oh well, it’s certainly a quiet moment.
Rebecca took time off to attend the event and, being a grandmother and photographer, she took her camera gear. Here we see Ben’s younger sister (kindergarten) waiting anxiously for her brother’s big moment.
You’ve got to love this shot of Ben returning a high-five on his way to receive the certificate. Leave it to Rebecca to capture a great moment.
Here we see Ben with fellow award recipients. This photo will help him remember his achievement and the pride he felt for being recognized as a Good Citizen – a trait that will serve him well throughout his academic and professional life.
We’re proud of you Ben – keep it up buddy!!!
