Fourth grade mania - this is when tracking decisions will be made in spring, grades really really count, and parents FREAK. Much ado about the latest LA test and questions a number of kids misunderstood. And a maths test. And...I realize that while these tests must be announced and other parents are making the kids study hard, anxiously keeping tally of grade point averages, I have no grasp of when they are taking place or when DS9 gets results back or even what those are and it appears, neither has DS9. I ask about the LA test. What LA test? Umm, the ones you must have gotten the results for earlier this week. Um, this week,a test? Oh yea, there was a test I guess. Well, what was your grade. Oh, an A. I get so many As, can't keep them straight.
Well. There are benefits.
