I have some good news I'd like to share with you. I tested your son today for reading and he is sitting at a level 18 (the average for grade 2 is 20 at this time of year).....wow!! He is almost at grade level...how exciting! He was so proud of himself today, it was amazing to see. For the rest of the day, he listened better and was more attentive to his tasks. It's amazing how confidence can be a motivation. Have a great day and I will continue to keep you posted. Thanks,

Student's teacher
