A Story About Honesty

Yesterday Mr G.(Blake's teacher) recognized Blake and one other student for being the only two in the class to receive 100% on the math test. He made a big deal over it and gave them each a special award in front of the class. As Blake looked over his test, he realized that he had actually missed one of the problems, but the teacher hadn't marked it wrong. He raised his hand and told the teacher that he really didn't get them all correct.
Mr. G sent a note home telling us how impressed he was with Blake's honesty.
It's a great feeling to know he is choosing the right, even when it's hard! He was also selected as Student of the Month for August!

Good job Blake! It must be such a good feeling to have your children do something right without you having to tell them. Good job Em and Ray!
