Big news. My younger daughter, Reanna, came home from school today with a note that told of her scores on the reading honors test, and she passed! She is now in both reading and math honors.
My older daughter, Audrey, came home with a note a few days ago that said she did not pass the math honors test. She scored 93rd percentile and she needed 97th percentile. Well, just after I heard about Reanna passing, I went up to the bedroom to change, and there was a message on the answering machine. It seems her teacher made an error while grading the exam, and she actually passed the test! This poor girl has scored between the 91st and 96th percentile on five consecutive honors tests, so I am very happy for her that she finally managed to get that "just one more" question right. She is now in both math and reading honors.
This means, twice the helping with homework for Dad, but we are all thrilled with their success.
