Moving from DC Prep Elementary School campus to the middle school campus for 4th grade, they started honor roll. Najwa earned her lapel pin making 2nd honors Honor Roll.
As much as we push academics, and Najwa has exceeded our expectations thus far, we did everything to celebrate, congratulate and appreciate her efforts. Nduku was waiting for me to push Najwa harder and say 2nd honors wasn’t enough, but I didn’t have to. And I knew it. After the feel goods settled down, Najwa made this comment: I’m going to make 1st honors next time. I think her mindset was more impressive than making honor roll. Proud of her.
