Finals for 3rd quarter are over. I am sad, but happy. Finals are 10% of their grade. He failed Algebra final...quarter grade = C (5 missing assignments, 5 incompletes) History final, 69%, final quarter grade = C+ Computer applications final, B quarter grade C+ (he had an F two weeks ago because he didn't do most of the projects) English final was B, quarter grade B+ (with one missing assignment) See why I am sad? if he did his work, projects he could have straight A's possibly and straight B's for sure. But I am happy. Put third quarter behind us, hope the adderall helps him focus and stay on task for these final 42 days of his Freshman year! Per his IEP, he can retake any test less than 70%. So, technically I could make him retake Algebra and History. But I think with all that is going on with him right now, I'll take the C's. (considering he had 3 F's two weeks ago) This IS his pattern though. He starts quarter great. Stops doing work and his grades go to F's, works his butt off and passes. He has done this forever. He was almost crying happy when I told him he had 42 school days left this year and he will be a sophmore. counting down one day at a time.
