Scholarship program


We got a phone call today to let us know that Riley has been selected for the Summer Learning Scholarship to attend UH's Summer Laboratory School. He had to write a short paper on why he wanted to attend and then his teachers had to rank the students on their GLO's (General Learner Outcomes) I told him not to get his hopes up as they were only selecting 2 students from the whole school and only one for the Laboratory School. We were very surprised to learn that he was chosen. He will be in either the marine biology or robotics class, we are not sure what one he is going to be placed in but he is really excited. Now all I have to do is worry about getting him up there every day during the 4 weeks that it runs, but we will figure it out!

Oh Riley ... that is the best news I have heard in a long time! We are so happy for you and hope you will post on your mom's blog what you learn at your summer class. You are going to have so much fun and learn so much. That is such an amazing thing to be picked for this program, and we are so proud of you! Love Uncle Jonathan and Aunt Cindy
