Jason brought home his progress report today for the six weeks grading period. I know have proof that all of our hard work, sweat, tears (both his and mine) and everything else has paid off. Because Jason has an A in Geography. A class that he had a grade much lower than an A in for the first two grading periods. Maybe the fact that I pointed out that summer school was the only option if he failed the class helped? Or the fact that I study with him for every quiz – which isn’t going to work in a few years. Whatever it was, his entire progress report was better. I am tickled pink about the A in Geography though. Seriously giddy.
When I called Mike to tell him, he was honestly speechless for a second.
Now I can only hope that he keeps it up for the next two weeks and does as well at the end of the grading period. I know he can do it, but whether or not he will is a completely different question.
