My son has his last final exams tomorrow. If he passes, that means homework is over until August. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And if you think I'm excited, you should see him. He got out of school at 11 today and I came home this afternoon to study with him so hopefully he got in enough study to pass the tests. I suspect he failed the one today. It was algebra and he has struggled with it all semester. If he passes the class it will be with a low D. If it was a class that he was never going to see again, I'd take the D and just be happy it is over, but he is going to have to take Algebra II in another year so I'm queasy about him barely passing. Summer school is a drag but it will only be for three weeks, assuming he passes all his other classes--and he could fail the other two too.

It's been a long year. We've decided to send him back to the same school next year as much for the stability as anything. We don't know if someplace else would be any better, and it might be worse. Sometimes I hate a lot of things about the school; but I do think that the people working with him care about him, and that's worth something.

  1. Ruth,
    THere are a number of good math programs out there that you could use next summer (prior to Alg 2) to bring him up to speed. Teaching Textbooks is what James is going to use this year. Also Aleks is an online progam that will evaluate and then give lessons where the child needs instruction... not wasting time on what they already know
