All he got was certificates:
He was happy about the certificates, but he also wanted a principle award medal. It didn't help that his brother got a few of them. A medal is much more cool than a certificate. When they get a medal they get to have lunch with the principle. The principle shows them a magic trick.
This year he got a medal a month into school starting. He's had nothing, but green (good) dots. I put the medal in a safe spot, and he got mad at me. He wanted to wear it every evening last week.
