On a day when DS15 is dealing...again...with fallout from his disastrous freshman year (yes, Virginia, teachers will give an F for the quarter), he receives an invitation to the NUMATS ceremony. He did no prep for the ACT other than taking a practice test (from a Kaplan book, where he found an error in their answer key). He took the ACT back in 6th grade, too, and while he didn't qualify for the ceremony then, he did quite well and we were glad to see his score rose 3 years later.

He doesn't usually care about this kind of thing, but on this particular day, he appreciates the boost. Thanks, NUMATS!
