You got Marilyn's 7th grade report card early in the summer. Some highlights of the report card:

Marilyn consistently contributes to cooperative group activities and respects the rights and possessions of others, has consistently appropriate social interaction with peers, and even seems to be a kind of peer leader.

Her word reading, spelling and writing skills are strong

She got A's in 7th grade English, Social Studies, and Spanish.

She got C's in 7th grade Math and Science. The teacher thought that she could do better with some tutoring and more studying.

Marilyn took art in 7th grade as an option, and got an A.

She listens attentively, follows directions, and follows school rules.

She is quite effective at time management, and highly consistent in working independently in the classroom and on homework. She has almost no problems completing assignments and turning them in on time.

You didn't have a chance to go to a teacher conference at the end of 9th grade, but you have spoken with nearly all of Marilyn's teachers or e-mailed with them at least once this past semester. You received the report card in the mail in early July.

Marilyn got good marks for citizenship this year from most of the teachers.

She got A's in Spanish I, English Honors and World Geography. The English and Spanish teachers both commented "a pleasure to have in class."

She received a B in Algebra I and a B in Biology.

She received A's in her fine arts classes this past year and a comment that her work was very creative.

She got a C in music this year and said, "I never want to take another music class as long as I live!"

Here are some highlights from Marilyn's 11th grade report card.

Marilyn received good marks for citizenship from several teachers, indicating that Marilyn contributed often to the class.

She got A's in Spanish II and English Honors and a B in American History. Marilyn is eligible to take AP Spanish, English and History next year, but will probably take the AP versions of only the first two.

She received a B in Algebra II and a B in Physics, and an at earlier conference with the Physics teacher, this teacher thought Marilyn was working up to her ability.

She received A's in her fine arts classes this past year and a notation "Pleasure to have in class" from the Drawing II teacher.

She received an A in an elective school service class.
