anyways, 2 fridays ago she came home with a red slip. it's bad enough to be on red, so to come home with a red slip is really, really bad. we had to sign it and she returns it to her teacher. then last friday, she came home with a purple slip. so she must have been extremely good to get a purple slip.
yesterday, she came home with an envelope. roel didn't smile or say anything when he handed it to me, so i was scared to even open it. turns out it was an invitation to the next assembly on monday because malia made the honor roll. just like when i found out she got student of the month, there i was again asking roel, "are you sure?" it was a shocker, but i'm proud of her! all i ask her to do is behave in class, try her best at her homework the first time, and ask for help when she needs it. i've never mentioned the honor roll to her. so for her to be on the honor roll this quarter is such a wonderful surprise.
