Highlights of the Week
Smarty got her first individual award this week - she was participating in Math Olympiad program this year than included 5 individual contests within her school. She got the highest individual score in her school - high enough to score in top 10% of all Math Olympiad participants in the nation in her age group (4th-6th grade). She did not seem to think that it's a big deal but we are very proud of her.
Smarty's school had an Open House on Wednesday. She was very proud to show some of the writing and art projects from this year. I always find it interesting to see during the Open House time not only what Smarty did but also what her friends did. It was definitely a very busy 4th grade, and we are kind of glad that we only have 3 weeks left :)
Places We Are Going
Smarty attended another seminar organized by Lyceum, our local organization for parents of gifted kids. It was a LEGO workshop where kids explored cogs and gears. She quite enjoyed it - perhaps it will motivate her to pull out her own LEGO more often at home.
