8th Grade Awards Night

We are so proud of Wesley. Last week was a day filled with fieldtrips, parties, and awards banquets. Wesley was one of only 12 eighth graders out of over 500 to receive straight "A" s all three years. That means that he had straight A's in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. He pulled this off while being in GATE classes for the past two years. He also received a medal that he wore at promotion which represents CJSF (California Junior Scholarship Federation) which is only for kids with a 3.5 and above. He also must contribute service hours during the semester. He is a member of the National Junior Honor Society, Scholarship Club, and also became a Life Scout last week. Wesley also received the Presidential Award for outstanding academics. He got a pretty nice letter from Obama too. He enjoyed Golf Club and played city Basketball and also takes piano lessons. Wes has many goals for himself and he is working really hard. This summer he is looking forward to Water Polo, Scout Camp and EFY(Especially For Youth)  He is gonna be going up to BYU and staying in the dorms for a whole week with his BFF Marshall. They are pretty excited!
So, there's my bragging for the year about Wesley. But more than anything, we are so pleased with him because of the choices he is making. His choice in friends, activities, and hobbies. He is really developing into such a fine young man and we love him so much! We know Heavenly Father is also pleased when we make good choices and we pray that our children will always seek the Lord and listen to the spirit.
