Kade's 3rd Grade Wrap Up

Kade's last day of 3rd grade was May 26!  He has had a wonderful year.  Some of his accomplishments the last six weeks include the following.

*Commended Performance on both the TAKS Reading and TAKS Math tests!  I am ecstatic over this news.

*1 of 4 top Accelerated Reader point earners in 3rd grade.  I couldn't believe it, but all four top readers were boys.  You don't see that very often these days, it's usually girls.  He was treated to lunch with his principal at Subway for this accomplishment.  The neat thing, though, was how they got to Subway---in a Limousine!

*All A's on his report card for the entire year!  There were only four students that accomplished this in 3rd grade for the 2010-2011 school year and Kade was one of them.

*Seymour Elementary has somewhat of a student council when you get to 4th grade.  It is called the Student Leadership Team (SLT) and you gain membership by classmates voting you in.  Ten students are placed on the team.  Kade was one of the ten--six girls and four boys.  He will make a great leader!

*Field Day was held the day before school was let out at the elementary.  Kade had a wonderful time and was even pretty good in the potato sack races, as you can tell from the video.

Volleyball with a balloon and a sheet.  Kade is in the lime green swim trunks.  He is trying to catch a water balloon that overshot the sheet!  He didn't catch it--the water went all over his feet!

Kade is on the far right (your right) side.

A-Honor Roll Certificate

Thank you Kade for being a great student and kid!  Daddy and I are so proud of you and are thankful you are a good role model for your little brother.


  1. Way to go Kade! My only regret is that you weren't ever in my class-I missed out for sure!

  2. The boys will love it!
    If you buy your ticket online it will guarantee you get in at the time you request (incase they are very busy that day) and it will save you a few dollars. You can also come and go as you please through the day. We didn't, but you could shop for awhile as well. They are also opening an aquarium in July that we plan to visit. Have fun!
