Ramblings of a Mad Piggie

Tuesday, December 05, 2006


What a guy. He was really really good. He talked to both hubby and I with the boy in the room and he's straight forth. He didn't coddle and he didn't let the boy think that if he continues this path, that he will graduate. Y our allowed 4 F's for the entire 4 years your there at high school. The boy has 3 at the moment. Not good.
He asked the boy if that is what he wants, cause if it is, with our permission, he'll write him up right now and let's not waste any of our time.
He told about his life story and his growing up and college. About his 2 brothers that are in high school right now. About the hundreds of kids just like him that he's talked to in his 7 yrs there at the school. We were in there for 2 hours!
He gave us some advice but he really said it was up to the boy to make a decision. If he's going to graduate and get better grades, then its not up to him or us, but to the boy himself.
Maybe hearing it from someones else will perk up the boys attitude and let some sunshine in. A ray of hope maybe.
In the meantime.....he will walk to Gma's and do his homework until I get hom from work to pick him up.
Ugh......I hope this passes. 2 1/2 years of this stuff and I'm starting to go crazy.
I won't give up...but man, it sucks.
He has 2 weeks to at least get 2 of his F's up to D's. He's at a 59% in english and a 42% in science (which, by the way he's in an accelerated science class I just found out. Only 10% of freshman take this class.) Time to remove him and put him in Biology where he belongs.
Hopefully that helps.

Sounds promising. Andy said he was talking to the youth pastor just tonight about what they could do and he wants M-moo to start coming to Sunday Night teen stuff.

That would be cool. Maybe we could try that too.
