Another Milestone

Peter All through his school career Jon’s always been at (public) schools dedicated solely to kids with special needs, both physical and developmental. The two years where the school board decided to put him in a special needs class in a regular school, by contrast, was a low point. But at no point has a traditional marking system ever been applied to his work, so academically Jon could proceed at his own pace, based on his strengths and needs.

The new high school clearly has some hopes for Jon, as he was put in two MID (mild intellectual disability) classes, English and Math. And to our surprise, and yes, delight, after the midterms (that we didn’t know he had had) Jon came home with this:
Honour roll certificate

Needless to say, colour us very happy and proud. Sometimes, occasionally, we’re getting something right.
