That's pretty cool. I'm especially proud to have earned the "Biggest Blowout" medal.

About the same time the kids in my local school district started getting a 'Golden Honor' plaque for a 92 average. In middle school.

I am not making this up.

But what about those kids who only get an 88 in 8th Grade History?

Don't worry! They get a 'Silver Star' plaque or something equally vomitous.

I don't know about your school, but a 92 average in our school is a good thing.

It is!

Now, in your school district, do you have a special night that parents [have to] attend so that l2-yr old Susie can get an actual award for getting an 'A-' in JrHigh Civics?

I honestly find this laughable to have an actual award ceremony that hands out plaques for what every kid in this district is more than capable of doing [of course many are too lazy to do so, but nonetheless.]

And awards for getting an 88 is beyond absurd. I feel like it's Bizarro World.


This is not a HS career average of 92+, which, I suppose, is worth congratulating in some fashion near graduation [or at] if they took difficult classes.


JMHO and ymmv.
