School Year in Review

This school year began a year ago when we transitioned school years in June. The first summer event of note was when the student went on his first job interview at Trader Joe's for a summer internship. He got the job!

On the way to the job interview:

Before beginning his summer job, the student went to Civil Air Patrol Summer Encampment at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.
He had a great time, but doesn't want to do it again! For the rest of the summer he worked at Trader Joe's. At the end of the summer we squeezed in a quick trip to Assateague for a mini-vacation.

Then in August we got his wisdom teeth out.
He also got to enjoy the Demolition Derby at the County Fair. Quickly enough it was the first day of school.
The student took dual enrollment classes at the local community college in addition to the subjects he studied at home. In the fall he took ENGL 102 and HIST 135 and in the spring he took SOCY 100 and SPAN 101. He also stayed active all year with Civil Air Patrol and Boy Scouts.

In January the lad got his driver's license! In February he completed his Eagle Project with Boy Scouts.
Then college visits began. He visited Patrick Henry

and University of Arizona.

After that he finished up his Eagle paperwork and in April he passed his Eagle Board of Review.
In May we had an Eagle Court of Honor for FIVE young men in our troop who achieved the rank of Eagle this year.
Shortly after that he had a foot surgery, from which he is now mostly recovered.

He completed all his course work for the year and rolled right into senior year with a summer course at the community college!

So that is a brief synopsis of 11th Grade. Thanks for reading!
