So - the pledge posted previously was something I thought Canon had to write for school. Apparently it was a pledge that he wrote for D.A.R.E. graduation and was entered in a school wide contest. His essay was chosen as the best essay written by a boy so him and the girl winner will get to read their pledge at D.A.R.E. graduation in front of the whole school on March 1st. He was pretty excited but gets more and more nervous as the day gets closer. I had no idea and offered him no help when writing his essay. I am even more proud of him now after finding out how great it actually was in comparison. I am so proud of my little student.
