Alex's Induction To The National Junior Honor Society
Song: Theme From "The Piano"
Artist: Michael Nyman
Yesterday, Alex was inducted to Coral Academy Of Science's (Reno)...
National Junior Honor Society.
Alex has kept a 4.0 GPA throughout his school years at Coral Academy of Science.
As part of Alex's In School service...
he tutors the High School students in math.
They are also expected to provide so many service hours to the community.
His NJHS club is soon going to the Truckee River to do some clean up.

He is with his English teacher here.
we went to our favorite Korean restaurant.
We started out with a Korean pancake for an appetizer.
Alex then had Chicken Katsu for his meal.
I had the same thing...
and I also had a bowl of vegetable Ramen.
Alex will be going to a special lunch buffet at one of the Casinos.
It is a school reward for the students who have maintained a certain GPA.
This weekend, Alex and I are flying to Las Vegas
to meet with the rest of the state math team in preparation
for the Mathcounts Nationals.
On the following weekend...
Alex will be competing for a slot on the State ARML team going to the Nationals
late next month.
If he makes the ARML team...
he will have a busy month in May.
During the second week of May...
he will be in Florida (Disney World) competing at the Mathcounts Nationals
(we will be there for 5 days).
just a couple of weeks later...
he will, hopefully, be competing in the ARML Nationals in Las Vegas
(we will be there for 4 - 5 days).
One piece of bad news...
I was hoping to sign up Alex for an advanced math class at a local college
for this summer session.
The schedule starts before his middle school ends...
and conflicts with the ARML Nationals.
he will be taking advanced math classes on line this summer.
I also have a very special writing assignment for him...
one which will take much thought and research.
