Today was John’s Parent-Teacher-Student Conference at Ridgeway Elementary.  It was as Andy and I expected.  John needs to focus more and concentrate especially when reading.  When he focuses, he reads well and retention is great, but focusing is not consistent.  Both Mrs. Dempsey and Ms. Newkirk, his Reading Specialist, did say that they have noticed some maturing on John’s part, so he is starting to get there.  John is doing very well in other areas, specifically Math and Science, and is right where he should be.  Now, if we could just get our social student to stop talking to other students, he would be really rocking!

We saw this as we were leaving the school.  I still have a hard time believing that Laura is no longer at Ridgeway Elementary.
