As homeschoolers of Philippine Christian School of Tomorrow, we also get to enjoy recognition days like regular traditional students and parents. We were not able to attend last year’s event since we were out of the country. But this time around, we are thrilled to be able to attend our very first homeschoolers banquet and awards night.
It was in 2010, when our homeschooler received 2 awards during his Preschool Graduation: Best in Sound Recognition and Most Number of Excellent Marks! This time around, for Level 3, Jed took home two awards: 7 Thousand Club Member and Honor A! Congratulations, son! If a student is a 7 Thousand Club Member, it means he has earned 70 100 scores during the school year, regardless of the number of levels he was able to finish. For last year, our son only finished 1. We are more than half way through Level 4. Unlike the previous years, Level 4 is already more complex. Pushing him to finish right away to make it to the cut off is not really worth it. Half-baked won’t cut it for these homeschoolers.
Last Friday was Jed’s third time to rehearse for their upcoming graduation (March 12). Their next will be on the 11th, the day before the graduation. It is a pretty long travel for us to have to go to PCST every time. With the heat and the now inefficient a/c of the car, we always come home short of having heat exhaustion. But we’re pressing on. A graduation is not something we get to witness very often and it is a milestone that our family is looking forward to being a part of.
