    Ant aint my fault if i write one thing and you think i said something else....i said in my SECOND POST that i was concerned about quarter grades and wasnt concerned about one failed test cause everyone has a bad day now and then.......

    Bruce.....aint so focused on the grades themselves but the fact they help her form good study habits.....if she wasnt as bright as she is i would adjust my "policies" to fit the situation.....but she is fully capable of getting all A's.......but if she gets all B's she wont be punished......if she gets all A's she has been told she will be handed $100 for her efforts.....she takes her sports more serious than anything.....just trying to make sure she puts studies ahead of the sports......only way to do that is that she knows she needs to preform academically if she wants to do extracurriculars.............

    That isn't a good reason to say I need to work on something I have an A in nor does it give you the right to suggest I am dumb in any way.

    That isn't my point, I get what you mean know and if it is under a week I feel its fine. I am saying that you shouldn't insult people you are trying to make a point to. If I got a D on my report card I would practically start crying. (well not really, I would more likely become REALLY stressed). Do you ground them if they get a D in say math or do you mean their collective average? (not that is makes a difference)

    What are you talking about?

    Maybe this will help you understand what I said.
    I agree with your method: Okay, I misread your post and If they get a D they are grounded.
    Question asked: Do you ground them if the quarter grade in 1 class is a D or the collective average of their classes
    New Point: You won't convince someone that you are right if you insult them while making your points.

    I don't understand what your point is about quarter grades.

    as a grade in an individual class for the quarter.......a D average for all 7 classes? thats barely better than 50/50...in most school systems unless you have a learning disability you have to TRY to do that bad........

    People in MA & MT don't really occupy the same planet and why should we expect them to be able to communicate? This is fun.
