A+ in our books!


Josiah worked very hard this week and completed his Grade 6 testing. The Canadian Government requires testing for Grade 3, 6 and 9. The results help them to see how well the teachers are doing. (So, it really is a test for the teachers...not the kid's...the mark doesn't go on the children's report card, or count in any way). There are many different opinions on this. We don't like the STRESS that is causes some kid's. However, Josiah had a lot of peace and made it through with no trouble what so ever. Good job Josiah!

Maria was in grade three testing this week...she loved it though, they had special goody bags for testing that the teacher prepared for each of them...lots of fun snacks, able to chew gum in class....all in all...probably sad it is over!
Glad Josiah didn't feel stressed either.
