Jakob's Sixth Grade Report Card - 1st Semester

It sure is hard to believe Jakob started middle school already and half the year is already completed!  Jakob has been involved in a variety of school activities and clubs including student council, mathematics and calculator UIL, and has been enjoying the after school art club.  He finished his first semester of middle school with the following report card.

1st Nine Weeks
2nd Nine Weeks
Semester 1

Jakob had an active first semester.  He attended his first school dance on September 30, 2016.  In November, he used money he received from his Meme to purchase new books from the school book fair.  He was quite happy with his purchase!  Sixth graders also attended a field trip to the University of North Texas on November 17, 2016.

Orchestra is one of his favorite subjects.  He started orchestra in fifth grade where they practiced twice a week.  Now in sixth grade, they practice daily.  Jakob normally stays after school to practice his instrument in practice club.  They even had a Halloween party for the orchestra students where they were allowed to dress up in costumes.  Jeff convinced him to wear the state-puff marshmallow man costume from Ghostbusters which was a hit for him!  His first orchestra concert was on November 10, 2016 where we listened to sixth, seventh, and eighth graders play their instruments.  It sure is amazing to see and hear how our talented students.

On Thanksgiving, my family and I ran in the Abilene Turkey Trot.  There were over 1300 people who either walked or ran the 5K that morning.  Ashlyn cheered us all on from the sidelines along with Lana and Gregg, my mother and father-in-law.  Jeff's goal was to finish under thirty minutes and my goal was to finish under 45 minutes.  We both beat our goals with Jeff finishing in 26:08.1 and I finished in 36:55.  When the race begin, the boys took off ahead of me.  I caught up to Jakob and was able to help challenge him to run a little more and he actually finished before me with a time of 36:38.6.  We were proud of him because he had only done a little training prior to running this 5K.  Roland did not give up and finished in 54:38.

Jakob received a 2x2 and a 3x3 rubik's cube for Christmas and solved them both after watching videos to learn the algorithms.  He received the 2x2 from his Uncle Randy, Aunt, Nikki, and his cousin Sophie.  The 3x3 rubik's cube was from Meme and Papa in Killeen.
