For the last six years, I've done Candy Bar Awards on the Student Awards Day. This year, honestly, I ran out of time, and since I'm at a new school, they knew nothing about my tradition... so I had them design their own awards for each other! Most were expected: best friends awards, best soccer player awards, funniest person awards... but there was one that just got me. A student in my class, who has autism, sometimes has a hard time academically and socially. My class, thankfully, is always super tolerant of him and his little quirks. Well, one of my students made an award for him. It was the "Nothing Lets You Down Award." It was all I could do to not OVER-react at how kind and thoughtful it was! I was worried he wouldn't get an award, honestly, so I was so glad that his award was so special.

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend! :)
