Wee difficult child had parent teacher conference last night. His report card hoovers. Badly. When compared to his peers on grade level, he's a kindergartener, at best. BUT - his marks in all specials (art, music, library, pe) are WONDERFUL! His marks about his own behavior and effort and responsibility are stellar. The teachers' comments about him going above and beyond and TRYING are astounding. Next year, his curriculum will be modified and he will be graded based on that instead of the "regular" curriculum. This year, they graded him based on 2nd grade expectations. He's straight up failing everything. But I could not be more proud of my little man!
