I got an unexpected call from my daughter’s school today. I thought that, she did something bad or something had gone wrong, but it was a sweet surprise.
After she garnered a score of 131 in SAGES-2 exam (passing is 120), she had undergone various testings (including phsychological). During this period, I did not made any follow up. After 60 days of screening and approval period, which is done by the school district, an adjudication was made. She is now officially part of the gifted-child program. She could start attending the said advanced class the next school day. But I decided to give her a week to say her goodbyes to her (soon-to-be-old) classmates and her very nice teacher.
For the third times this school year, my 7-year old daughter is transfering class again. She is not thrilled about it, but it is for her future. This is a very big break for her and our family. It will be in the same school, but in the advanced class for the 1st graders. I am very excited.
Fastforward — I can’t wait for her to finished high school and apply for scholarships in an Ivy League school in the country. Well, she needs to continue being a good student to achieve this. This is too overwhelming — my daughter living my (childhood) dream.
