With everyone being sick, I haven’t had a chance to share this with you all. This is so cool and I’m really excited to be able to share this.
On Thursday morning, my Emmett John was named student of the month.
This was done in the morning and it was a school only function, meaning parents weren’t invited. When I arrived at the Christmas program, one of the staff told me about it. She’s said it was the cutest thing ever.
When the principal announced Emmett as student of the month, Emmett jumped up and screamed “yes, yes that’s me”.
They said it was like he was on the Price is Right. He stood up and danced around. He’s been wanting to be student of the since the first one was announced. He’s so excited and so proud.
We are all so incredibly proud of him. He works so hard and this is well deserved.
When he returns to school next year, he will be treated to lunch by the principal and get to eat lunch with him as well.
Incidentally, they did spell his name wrong on the certificate. Emmett hasn’t noticed yet and so I’m going to ask if they’ll reissue the certificate with his name spelled right. If he notices the misspelling, he’s going to be really upset.
I’m sure they’ll take care of this and it won’t be a problem.

Everybody habitually misspells my name. You have to get used to it.
