Since this is the end of the school year, I wanted to take the time to do some “shout outs” to those wonderful, hard-working kids who did a great job this year. If you know any, shout them out.
CONGRATULATIONS TO MY NEPHEW!
My nephew (Oracle Jr.) who is in kindergarten, was evaluted this school year. For his reading evaluation, my brother was told that, a grade of 4 would be considered within range. My nephew scored…A WHOPPING 38!!! The school also feels that, he will not be challenged in the next grade so, in all likelihood, they will let him skip a grade and go directly to second grade!
He’s a MENSA genius like his daddy!!! T-Ali is sooo proud of you!
CONGRATULATIONS TO MY DAUGHTER, MS. YELLOW JACKET!
My daughter was doing very well academically with all of her subjects, except one..physics. It was kicking her butt (back in the dinosaur days, we didn’t take physics in the 9th grade.) But, not to be defeated, she dug her heels in and studied her patooty off, went to tutoring to get help and brought her average up from a “D” to a “B”! Now, she’s heading to her final with an “A” average!!!
The beauty of it all is that, she did all of this without any pushing or prodding from me. She knew she was smarter than that “D” and sought out the help she needed to understand the subject!!!
You go girl!!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2009 CLASS OF XAVIER PREP!
The school where my daughter attends is on point with the academics big time!
The class of 2009 has a graduating class of 64 students…52 of the 64 have received ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS!!!!
62 of the 64 are officially accepted to the university of their choice!!
Those kind of stats are off the chain!!
This school is 100% young, black females who are once again debunking the myth that, schools with all black students are substandard.
WAY TO GO XUP!
Last but not least,
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2009 GRADUATING CLASS OF St. Augustine High School!
I don’t have the stats on Aug yet but, this 100% black male school has had a long standing legacy of excellence (google St. Augustine High School in New Orleans.) And because I know a lot of the seniors, I would be remiss if I didn’t say how proud I was of these young men who have beat the odds (especially here in NOLA) and received their high school diploma.
I salute you fellas…
Purple on the left side, Gold on the right…black in the middle, that makes you a knight..oh, ohhhhh!
