Parents, Guardians, and Students:

Hope your summer is going GREAT so far. I really enjoyed working with you and your child this year. I wish you all the best of luck next year at the high school. On Friday after all of the students left I was informed that Math SOL scores were in. If you would like to know your child's score, please send me an email.

Thanks again for everything!

Thank you! I will definitely pass your congratulations on to Alex. Now, if you don't mind me asking - - where does a "600" rank? "Pass Advanced" or "Pass Proficient"?

Any scores he made are due to your skills as a teacher, so congratulations to you too!!


Message No. 5:

A 600 is a perfect score. You cannot score any higher!


End Note: Well, he didn't get it from me. I managed to fail Algebra not once, but twice.

Fantastic , Holly's mouth will drop open as we are both complete duffers at Math.
Calvin and Hobbes , I adore them .Which reminds me Mum has some I must collect from the house as all her other books are going to charity.
I'd have loved to do better at Math but my teacher was so terrifying she put me off for life.
