He got all As even though they completed the fifth grade Everyday Math book and he was placed all year in the sixth grade vocab book. He was the only kid who is hearing impaired or has an IEP. His math team he was on also got first place for our city-wide math competition for his grade!

    DD10 just got a letter in the mail from Belin Blank Talent Center that she has been invited to their Recognition Ceremony in the Fall for her EXPLORE test results.

    I don't know if we can go to the ceremony or not, but we are excited about the recognition.

    There were notes and scribble-outs in there that made it pretty clear she had written this herself, but I confess that I actually Googled this to see if it was plagiarized--doesn't seem to be at all.


    Beautiful.

    My DS6 had his first algebra test and received 100%! What really surprised me was how he downplayed his achievement- usually he is quite boastful lol.

    Thanks, HowlerKarma. It makes me happy to see him happy. I found the award for his achievement in his bag after he had gone to bed. He was still awake so I went in and gave him a big kiss and said congrats, and he just had such a sweet little smile of, like, "Aww shucks, mum". So cute smile
