atta girl


Recently the tall kid helped act as an MC for the opening ceremonies at her school. Our previous school had been closed and another school had been renovated to house the extra students from our school. The renovations have finally been finished and the opening ceremonies took place two weeks ago.

We received some very nice compliments from teachers and the Principal and VP when we attended the open house that night, and a she brought a few notes home to show us. I thought I’d post them here for the rest of the family to see and for the tall kid to know that we are proud of her.

Dear (tall hormonal kid),

Thank you for being an MC for this very important ceremony. It is something you’ll be able to tell your children about one day!

You did a fabulous job! I am so very proud of you.

You are an amazing young person – full of potential. Your sense of community, desire to contribute and leadership are incredible attributes.

I will always remember that you were the first (old school) student that I met. I had gone for a meeting at your school and you were all out for recess. You gave me a “hi”, a big smile and asked what we were doing. You were my first (old school) connection.

I knew I could count on you to be the best MC you could be. Thanks for your caring commitment.

  1. so super awesome. I’m also impressed that the teacher and caller for letting tall kid know how awesome she is. People so often have no trouble at all letting people know when they do things not so good but when good things are done, nothing may be said. The fact that it was said, and written just gives tall kid more confidence and assurance that she is in fact pretty awesome. I love the story!
