This is a WWYD because I seriously don't have to be right here. I'm not going to say who reacted how, but I'll tell you that Daddy and I have very different reactions to Jabber's most recent report card. Keep in mind that he is on ADHD meds which started last year.
In 6th Grade he made the Honor Roll for 3 out of 4 quarters. He consistently got in the mid to high 90's for grades last year with one exception, and it turns out the teacher may have been the problem, but that's another story! His teachers put an emphasis on the use of an agenda that was provided by the school and there was constant communication between teachers and parents using that as well as email.
This is 7th grade now and they got agendas at the beginning of the year and were told to use it for keeping track of their assignments etc. At Open House the teachers told us that they put the assignment for the day on the board and the students are to copy it into the agenda. Nobody reminds the students of this or any other sort of reinforcement. His report card for the first quarter this year has one A- and 5 B's. He is also in a 'booster' section for one of his classes because he borderline failed a comprehension est at the beginning of the year. Not SPED, but not at even speed with "average" kis his age. He had the same thing last year but with the meds changes we challenged that and he excelled. This year he just didn't make an effort and we kept him in to work his way out.
What does the conversation sound like that you have with him about this report card? I'm trying not to say too much here, and want to know what your gut reaction is here. If you don't reply to public comments but would like to ell me what you're thinking anyway then just right-click anywhere on the page and you'll see my email address! Thanks! Oh, and yes... I'll post again and share my thoughts after I give this some time being posted.
