Thanks! All in all it went pretty well, it was funny to see that a couple of the teachers didn't even realize they were brothers, much less twins. They are pretty different kids ;) They both seem to have gotten to a rough start but I'm being told are getting the hang of things. They still have time to bring their grades up before the end of the semester, both of them have some missing assignments from the beginning of the year. I did luck out that they have the same teachers for their core classes, made conferences much easier to handle. My only complaint are the parents who have serious issues to discuss with the teacher and spend way too much time with them. It's a round table format, so you have to wait in each teacher's line for your turn. Some parents need to make appointments separate from conferences!!!

" They still have time to bring their grades up before the end of the semester, both of them have some missing assignments from the beginning of the year."

Sounds like a familiar story in this house! Well, my 3rd grader is doing great- he comes right home and does his homework but my 7th grader...sigh. The missed assignments drive me BATTY. His grades would be SO much better if he would just do all his work!!
