Owen’s Kindergarten Reflections

Owen this past school year was enrolled as a kindergarten student. He had Nadia for a teacher. At the end of the year, Nadia asked the students to write about each other. She collected them in a book and it makes a great memory of the their year together. I also think that it gives good insight into the personality of Owen. I feel that people do grow and mature, but their basic nature doesn’t change much throughout their lives. Here are some excerpts on what the children had to write about their friend Owen.

Joaquin – “I like Owen because he has yellow hair and he is more funny then everybody in the world.”

Camila – “I like Owen because he is beautiful and the color of Owen is red.”

Maximo – “I like Owen because he is funny and Owen is crazy.”

Cristina – “I like Owen because he is beautiful and he is crazy and he is cute. Owen is nice with me and he plays with me.”

Valeria – “I love Owen because he plays tag and transformers and Pokemon and he tries to kiss us and hug us.”

Glenn – “I like Owen because he has pretty hair and Owen has a pretty house”

So basically, Owen has yellow hair and is a fun-loving guy.

Owen Graduates from Kindergarten

Owens Graduation Speech, originally uploaded by bill kralovec.

We had a nice ceremony on Friday morning at the school. The Kindergarten “graduated” to first grade. It is a big moment for them and their parents as it marks the end of early childhood. Next year they will be in the elementary school. All the students read a prepared graduation speech and received their diplomas. Many proud parents were taking video and photos. Above is Owen’s speech. He is a bit sad in leaving his friends. We plan to re-enroll him in kindergarten next year at his new school due to his young age.
