E Bear Passed!

My E Bear goes to a prominent traditional school for boys near our place.  I was very apprehensive about his performance.  His Teacher has, on several occasions, met with us to discuss his behavior in class.  His test scores were also a cause for concern.  We actually questioned our decision to let him try mainstreaming in a traditional school instead of going to a progressive school as recommended.  We were afraid that he wouldn’t fit in with the structure and won’t learn the way he should.

But he is very happy with the school.  He now has a best friend.  He also likes his teacher a lot.  So moving him to a different school is not a pleasant prospect for all of us.

Lo and behold, when his report card came, we were VERY pleasantly surprised to learn that he had passed all his subjects!  Hindi pasang awa ha!  He really passed!  His teacher also noted that his behavior improved a lot!

It turned out that he just needed some time to adjust to a different school setting.
