Proud of ds!

May 11th, 2007 at 06:39 am

We got a letter yesterday from the high school stating that our 13 year old ds has qualified for the Honours Program in all academic courses! Woo Hoo! I am so proud of him...This means that he will take honours English, social studies, math, French and science and have regular phys ed. and elective courses. The honours program only takes 60 kids and, because it's the only program of it's kind in our city (leads to the International Baccalaureate program in grades 11 and 12), all grade 7 students can apply to the program, and not just those living in the school catchment. This will be super for ds because he'll meet a lot of new kids whom he probably wouldn't have had the chance to meet otherwise!

    That is great! DD1 will be taking honors history and comm arts, but around here they have large classes of honor students, with LOTS of homework. We were actually warned not to take them, as you have no social life then. But DD thinks she can handle it. I can't imagine honors math and French! Makes my pea brain hurt just thinking about it!
    You must be so proud! Congrats!

    Neice and Nephew got one year of college out of the way while still in high school in Washington State.

    Locally they just started the program, so my girls missed out.

    Thanks everyone! Most of my friends have kids about the same age as ds and I'm hesitant to really bring it up to them...it's nice to be able to come here and really boast! He's an awesome kid in so many ways and we are very proud.
