Caution: Proud Mommy Moment Ahead!
The Broward County School District is the sixth largest in the United States is one of the five highest ranked school districts in Florida. Out of the 250,000 students enrolled in the district, 39 have been recognized this year through the Kids of Character Program.
Monday May 4th, 2009 was a wonderful evening. Heather was honored by the Broward County Kids of Character Program.
Heather is pictured with (left to right) Mrs. Hollingsworth (Vice Principal), Mrs. Gonzalez (Heather’s Teacher – fifth grade), Mrs. Mclaughlin (Guidance Counselor), and Mrs. Gundling (Principal).
This is Heather with her teacher Mrs. Gonzalez.
Here Heather is surrounded by her proud family.
In addition to being an honor roll student, safety patrol officer, and member of the school’s chorus and ecology clubs, Heather was recognized for her volunteer work on behalf of the Cooperative Feeding Program of Broward County and involvement in community based environmental efforts. She also created a humorous video persuading fellow students to use cloth bags over plastic (she cast herself in all three roles of her script!). Once again, congratulations Heather.
PS: as an equal opportunity cheerleader, I will post about Jasmine’s honors in tomorrow’s post and Arvind’s the next day.
