that was short lived

Parent night last night, went in got the highlights of this year found out C is in a pilot program where the 5th graders are in more of a middle school situation with 4 teachers instead of just the one. Did not really find out any more about the program last night but I am going to look more into to it today. I however got some basic info and checked son's binder when I got home to find lo & behold he did not do his social studies homework the prior evening.....and so it starts?! Oh hell to the NO! hopefully the fear of God (or rather mom & dad) got through to him last night and he understands homework is not optional *big sigh*

excuse me while I am "THAT" parent for a moment

very extremely proud looking over C's TCAP scores to see he was really smart/super amazing smart level okay maybe it was just advanced...except math which was merely proficient (my mother & aunt will be disappointed he may not be the math geek they were hoping for) My point being waaay proud of my baby. Evidently his teacher told him that if they still had the TAG (talented & gifted) program at his school he would have been in that. The problem now of course is keeping him interested, engaged & finishing his school work in class so he can live up to these lofty scores..not always the easiest task we have found out through the years *sigh* because quite frankly standardized testing doesn't mean squat at the end of the day
