Haven't posted in this thread since it was started way back when... DS was in first. (Now he's just completed 3rd... My how time flies).

This year our PS situation really turned a corner. Starting in the second marking period DS(then)7 was switched to take 6th grade pre algebra for first period in the Middle School. For second marking period he did great and then each marking period after his average kept going up (despite missing a FULL month for state testing).

At the end of the year he got an achievement award for ... the highest overall average in the class. (He tied with one other student).

Lots of bumps along the way but this year ended on a VERY positive note.
