Pre-K Stepping Up Ceremony

Arosha's first ever class.Today Arosha had his Pre-K stepping up ceremony. I went by myself — decided that it was better to leave Anюta with Danya and his dad, so she would not distract me from the man of the hour.

The ceremony was really nice. I felt quite emotional, especially when Arosha’s class was singing “It’s a small world”. I could differentiate my boy’s clear loud high voice from the choir, and it made me extra teary. Danya can also hear his voice in the video.

I am really proud of Arosha. He did well in school, even though he missed a lot of days due to being sick. His teachers seem to genuinely love him. I remember I was dreading speaking to his main teacher, Ms. Lupion, in the beginning of the year, because she was telling me that she can’t figure him out and that he does not listen to her and that maybe I need to check his hearing….

Teacher’s assistant Mrs. Aviani, who is Russian, knew right from the start that Arosha is a bright and well developed child, and I think that we are very lucky that he had a Russian-speaking teacher to ease him onto public school education. In any case, as Arosha picked up English language and figured out what is expected of him, his main teacher changed her opinion of him. She actually told me that children like Arosha, seeing the impact that she made on him, make her love her job all the more.

Arosha with his teachers.I am really grateful to his teachers. I see that they are loving and caring and really put all their hearts into their job. I hope Arosha’s new teachers next year will be good too. Ms. Lupion is retiring this year after 30 years of helping little ones to start school. That’s too bad, because I was hoping that Anюta will go to her class too.
