Sometimes, the news is all good!
Evan's first middle school Academic Progress report (and we were worried that he wouldn't handle the transition well).

Language arts - 96.421% (24 grades)
Social Studies - 81.667% (7 grades)
Science - 99.429% (7 grades)
Math - 99.75% (7 grades)

Some of the Social Studies grades are apparently weighted, probably the tests, where he didn't do as well.

5 Fields of learning - 100%
Project - 100%
Section 1&2 Quiz - 74%
Constitution Brochure - 95%
Chapter 2/Test - 92%
Time Zone Map - 95%
Notes/Greece - 100%

If you calculate them straight, the overall percentage is 93.71% but I understand if the quiz and test were worth more.

Meh, it's social studies. ;-)

Oh my goodness, that's a GREAT report card! I bet Evan is pleased too :)

Yes, we were all really happy with it. Of course, there was still some prodding. Not for perfection, mind you, but because some of his lower grades were due to missing easy points. For example, there has been at least one time that he did his homework, then didn't show it to the teacher, then subsequently lost it. Thus, an unnecessary zero. That's not unusual for Evan, whom I still call, "The Nutty Professor," though not to his face. ;-)

Overall I am very pleased with how well he has dealt with the transition to middle school: changing classes, using a locker, having P.E. instead of recess, etc. Transitions have traditionally been difficult for him, so this is a monumental success. It helps that he generally has LESS homework than he's had in the last 2 years. Sheesh.

   Smart kid!

   As for the social studies, it's probably not him. That stuff is boring!
