Not QUITE Too Proud for Words

Because, after all, here come the words now:

Last night was awards night. MANY students were honored for their academic, sports, and character achievements. One student was honored for receiving a perfect score on his National Latin Exam: Daniel!

To put it in perspective: 137,000 students worldwide took one of the NLE's, and just 917 (less than 1%) received perfect scores. And Daniel's first year of Latin study was at home--a little with me, then summer cramming with Lauren and David. I know he worked hard to do so well this year. That may be what makes me most proud--that perseverance and effort.

I'm a little embarrassed to post this, because it feels like bragging, but I also want to share his happy news. It's not like I'm taking credit, after all...

Way to go, Daniel! We are all so proud of your hard work. Please don't test my latin when I see you this week as I am sure I would fail!!

Hugs,
Mrs Krug and all the rest....
