Honor Roll!

Kayla made the Honor Roll!

Academics do not come easily for her, at all, so this was definitely hard-earned. I was not able to be at the ceremony but I heard she was just beaming and so proud when her name was called.

Requirement is 86 and above and she had a couple 85/84 last year so she was soooo close! So proud of her during this first quarter marking period!

Chess Accomplishments

As I mentioned in this post, Lucas is really enjoying the game of chess and becoming quite a decent player (if I do say so myself!).

A few weeks ago the library chess club had a small tournament among their members and he came in third.

A few weeks after that he participated in the Charleston Fall 2017 Chess Scholastic tournament that was an official US Chess event. There were 21 players in his ratings bracket.

This kid took 2nd place! So proud of him!

There is another tournament this weekend that I wish he could participate in, but he has a soccer game (and he missed a game the weekend he participated in the chess tournament); the joys - or conflicts - of having interests that overlap!
