As I have posted, I am backing way off of cultured difficult child and the school scene. I am aware that her grades are not good, and that, at last count she had 23 missing assignments, but I say nothing. She worked on homework off and on thru the weekend. I didn't know why, just thought it was odd. She took her science grade from a 66% to an 85%. I found out why today. The field trip for the "100% club" is Tuesday. You have to have all your work done, and all your grades a C or above, and under a certain number of tardies and verious other requirements. She is going. She still has 5 missing math assignments. Obviously, she will do the work if she thinks she needs to (case in point - science - she raised her grade over 15 points in order to make this field trip!). I know the math teacher has sent home notes and holds other kids to the school policy of doing the work - I don't know why he's not for cultured difficult child. She's had over 20 assignments missing this year that he never "reported". So, do I call the school? Or pretend I know nothing and let her go on the field trip without having earned it? Again. Telling anyone but the school is out. I won't say a word to the rest of them.
