For some of the schools that started earlier in the "summer", report card time should be just about upon us.

I wish Jordyn thought that way! We had a major meltdown on our hands last night after she took a retest in English (the class that is going to be the death of both of us by the end of hte year!) She only did 2 points better, the synthesis paper they just handed in that they were told would go on this 9 weeks is now going on the next 9 weeks, and they apparently are moving some of the "easy" quiz grades that were high, to the next 9 weeks also (which I don't understand) and so she thinks she's going to end up with a 78 or 79, her lowest grade ever and she's freaking out. I told her it would all even out by the end of the semester report card and it would bump up quite a bit, but by that time, through the tears, she was just not seeing the big picture. But other than that one class, she's doing very well for junior year considering its supposed to be the hardest year. I think she was also concerned because she wasn't sure if these grades would affect whether she would make it into NHS, because invitations go out today for the application process.

Our kids don't get any report cards until December. However, their grades are continually updated online. I still have to go to the office and get a new parent password but I know she uses her student password. She's really dilegent about grades and she's working her tail off on homework so I'm not anticipating any surprises.

LOL! Good, or not so good to hear then. I agree, that first semester freshman year, I think you hear so often that its such an adjustment that if they don't do badly, it gives them a good sense of security! I'm glad she's trucking along well right now and happy about it.

Our school only does report cards once a year.

The main thing I don't like about it is that some students need the mental break of a "clean start" at the beginning of the quarter to encourage them to do better.

No surprises here, both kids are great students. None of the schools here send report cards, not for kindergarden or Senior year. THey call and send a reminder to look on line.
