school grades for 1st quarter were received over the weekend. little big man got an average of 86.3474. should've been enough to get him a 3rd honor but he had a pair of 82's. the requisites for a 3rd honor is an average of 86 and no grade lower than 85. sadly, he had 82 in reading so we're catching up on that now. and 82 in character education which, according to his teacher, was due to his being talkative.
we promised each other, together, we'll get that honor come 2nd grading period. aja!
and there i was 9 years ago, wanting my kid to go into a progressive school and not a traditional school like this!
