Love, love, love the pictures of Alyssa - I'm very proud for you! What fantastic accomplishments! Amazing!


Wow what an amazing night for your family. It must have been like the Emmy's. Congratulations Alyssa for doing so good. What a great honor, you must have been beaming the whole night. I love the pictures, her hair is pretty and love the shoes. How cool to be in the newspaper also, love what they said about her. You must be so very proud of her. Does she know what she wants to do when she's done with school? What kind of school does she go to? We don't have any thing like this for the 8th graders, just an honors breakfast at 6:00 in the morning before school starts to get a certificate saying you made honor roll all year, that's it. Your school seems to do some amazing things with their children which is a good thing. Congratulations again to all of you.


You should brag on her, what an accomplishment!

wow Alyssa - congratulations and well done for all your hard work!


It is so fun to hear you brag about your daughter-- you have every right to be proud of her! Congratulations to her for her many awards :) And Alyssa, your wonderful work ethic will stand you in good stead through the rest of your schooling (and life, really). Great work!!


Wow! Congratulations to Alyssa! I remember sitting behind Deneen when her girls won all of their awards- definitely a proud mama moment!


WOW!!! Congrats to Alyssa, and of course congrats to her family too!!! I always say that when kids are that good, there is always an excellent family behind supporting them !!! Excelent job,Laura!!!


This is incredible, Laura! I'm an 8th grade teacher, so I can tell you that when students like Alyssa come along, the teachers have *almost* as much pride in them as their parents do. :) She must be a very bright and special girl!

That is truly amazing you should be so so proud! It's nice when things come naturally for kids and they don't have to strugle with school. Makes moms job alot easier!

Just smile and say thats my girl!


Truly amazing and wonderful accomplishments - congrats to her (and her parents!) Funny how they hardly look old enough for HS!


Awesome! You should be bragging on your girl! Thanks for letting us know so we can share in your joy. What to go Alyssa! Go and conquer High School. You have a great future ahead of you.


I remember how wonderful it felt when Heather and Holly swept the awards at their 8th grade graduation and I don't think I will ever forget how proud I was at that moment so I expect you were feeling that too! I was so proud of Alyssa and actual cut out the photo from the paper and here it sits on my desk waiting until I see you so I can give you another copy LOL!!!! One can never have too many copies now can they?
Congrats Alyssa I am so very proud of you!
