[ - ] WDYD or WWYD? 12 y.o. DD. Exuberant, enthusiastic, but also stubborn, verging on "take no prisoners." Can be fairly ungrateful, too. Wants to stay up yet can't get out of bed in AM. Can't get her stuff together for school or travel sports, yet puts blame on us for her not being ready. We are so exasperated. We try 30, 15, 5 minute heads up. Ask her to set her timer, etc. If she misses school bus, she would flip out yet fail to grasp her role in it. There has been a lot of transitions in her life this year. Yet these AM cage matches are not cutting it for anyone. TIA for any and all suggestions and observations. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, they would not get in the second year because they would be too old. That is what I mean by they right shirt differently. The cut off is "sept 1" but few schools admit kids with july and august birthdays turning 5 unless they are sibs, legacy or famous. Even June birthdays are told to hold off, but May and April, you need to apply the year they turn 5. So what I am saying is, if you have a Jan-June turning 5 you apply, if you have a july-december you wait. Jan-June I think get screwed a little, I think. Hey, I'm no expert, but I have seen this year over year, fall birthdays get in to the TTs more easily without connections. Look at the makeup of your classes, it pans out. [ Reply | More ]

we had this recently - was more concerned that dd got a 3 bc she is so strong in the class - teacher told us that midyear they are grading kids on where they'd score on their state exams if they were held now (obviously on the subjects they'd learned to this point). She also said 3 was a solid grade - and she only gave out a very very few 4s, so i guess it also depends on teacher. [ Reply | More ]

I know DS is a very good writer, so I'm not thrilled with this, but only really care about MS, to be honest. [ Reply | More ]

from my experience with older dcs, 4th grade teachers bump up grades on final report cards wherever they can [ Reply | More ]

Thx. It's a little nerve-wracking thinking that a single rouge grade/teacher could screw DS (who is a truly committed, focused, generally excellent student). [ Reply | More ]

This is also what seems to be a huge disadvantage being at a G&T. we get a teacher who is very harsh with grades, meanwhile all the gen ed kids we know ended up with straight 4s on report card. Add to it this is how Anderson uses the report now for cut offs and not just the state exam scores. This eliminated dc from qualifying. [ Reply | More ]
