Congratulations to my grade 2 son! This is the first time he received an award – Statefields School Honors Certificate. We are not expecting him to be in the list because he is a new student. We transferred him to Statefields School Inc. this year. It is another challenging chapter of our life as we adjust to the school’s standards, rules, and multiple intelligence approach. My son got Red honors certificate in the first term.
The Statefields School Honors Certificate consists of Cream, Green, Red, and blue honors. For red honors which my son got, his average is in between 91-93 with no grade lower than 89. There should be no grade below 87 in conduct & GENDEP. I remember, part of the goal that my son wrote is to be a blue awardee mentioned in my post at 3 Ways to boost Multiple Intelligence. Although he did not get the blue honors certificate in the first term, I am humble and happy for his Red honors certificate. I do not force him to study, I always encourage him. My son and I have an agreement that we are a team. It is important that he is not only learning but he also enjoys the things he does in school.
During the first term, he got very good scores in his quizzes, long test, and term exams. Being new to this school, I’ve observed that their exams are different from the traditional school. Questions that were asked are cool and smart making it interesting for my son to answer. It is not the type of exams for memorization only but you really have to understand the logic and concept.
For their school’s diary, I like how my son write the subject’s lessons covered, assignments or reminders, and the reflection of him daily. It teaches not only the students to be organized but also helps the parents in guiding their students to be effective in learning.
Another thing that I like from Statefields school is their Multiple Intelligence portfolio. It is also our first time to do that. Through MI portfolio, we can see the progress and development of students in different fields of Multiple intelligence. I am glad to view and reminisce all the events and accomplishments that my son did for each term. From here, we can reflect on the areas that we need to improve more for our students. I am looking forward for the following terms until the end of term. We are hoping for the best!
