Well My son had a rough go of it for a while in third grade and the beginning of 4th. In Virginia 3rd grade has 4 tests called Standards Of Learning (SOL). Last year he failed both reading and Math. This year he passed both and got one of the highest grades in the class on the Reading test.... On top of all that he got 4 awards as well... Most improved student. The I'm a geek award. The I help the teacher with the computer all the time (I'm a really big Geek)award. I love school so much I came every day (WOW I'm a SUPER Geek) award.
