Moving Up Day
Sunday, April 01, 2007

Yesterday was my kids' recognition day. My elder son, Raymund, placed at second honors in his grade III class and my younger son, Ralph, got the most outstanding and the most independent in his kinder II class (pictures below). As a tutor to my two kids and of course as their mom I really am very proud of them.

The grading system at La Marea Academy is somewhat different. In most schools, when a child gets the highest final grade in his class he automatically becomes the first honor. In La Marea, they follow a certain range for a child to be given the first honors. If his final grade is 91 to 91.99 he should be in third honors, if its 92 to 92.99 he should be in second honors, and if 93 and above then he gets the first honors. So that no matter how many of them has grades that fall into a certain range it doesn't matter.

In Raymund's class there is no first honor but they are six in the second honors. According to my son's class adviser, Raymund required only a few points to be eligible for the first honors. Among the second honors he has the highest grade, according to him. Well, I think what's important is knowing that my son has high grades and I have very high hopes for him.

The moving up and graduation ceremony yesterday started at 2:30 PM with a baccalaureatte mass. It was followed by doxology in which Raymund played a part, then the national anthem. Part I was the graduation ceremony for the preparatory and grade school levels. It was really tiring having to wait for Part II which is for the non-graduating honor students. Since my kids' prepared for their intermission numbers, waiting was made easier because we were apprehensive on how they will perform on stage this time. What touched my heart was the part when honors were made to sing a thanksgiving song for their parents. After the song they went down the stage and offered flowers to their parents. I was quite teary eyed remembering those times when I had to carry my little boy in my arms and do everything for him. It was not too long ago...
It was a hot tiring day and we were very hungry when everything folded up at 7:00PM. It was already dinner time and we eagerly proceeded to Gloria Maris Restaurant for our family celebration.

To all kids moving up... CONGRATULATIONS!
