See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
In May my son failed his end of kindergarten test...pretty badly. I asked the school if they would let him go to summer school and let my mom and me work with him...then he could retake the test at the end of summer.I said if he fails again we will go ahead and hold him back but if he passes let him go to first grade with his class mates. He retook the test in july a week before school started and he passed so he promoted. We were all still a little worried though... the principal said " if he seems to be struggling we can always put him back in kinder". the teacher sent home all of the work he has been doing and he hasn't gotten anything lower than a B on any of it.... and she says he is very well behaved. I could just brust buttons.
We got his first progress report yesterday... he got an A in language, a B in math. and and A+ in science and social studies and a C- in penmanship... I am so very proud of him !!!!
