    Keep your fingers crossed that they do well. I have one or two kids for whom this could mean passing the trimester-- I hope they do well!!

    Then, from noon, it's a grading marathon. I'll stay at school, far away from the cries of "Mom!!!" and grade.

    We always order takeout from a local deli on Math grading day, so I'll have a nice panini delivered at 1; that will be enough to tide me over until a late dinner time.

    I am furiously grading today too. I told the 8th graders I MIGHT be done by the end of the day, if everything works out the way it should. They are hovering outside my room!

    LLLOOOONNNNGGGG day today!!!

    I got home about half an hour ago.

    I graded 5 classes' exams, and did report cards for all 5 classes.
    What slowed me down a bit was that we just switched to Power School, so I had to figure out what I was doing. (It wasn't PS itself that slowed me down, it was being unfamiliar with it.)

    Overall, the kids did fairly well, at least considering that math was the last of the 6 exams.

    I only had one student go down for the marking period. And, as much as I love him, I DID teach him in summer school, so Tom had apparently had past issues with math.

    I also had one student-- one of Alicia's-- miss the exam, so I'll have to grade her makeup tomorrow morning.

    That's certainly good news! :)

    I was upset because we were out for a few of the last several days of school...that really put a kink in things.

    We don't really have much of a choice; grades are due at 11 am. So a bunch of us, particularly those with kids, stay and just get it done.

    When I left at 7ish ,there were still 6 or 7 people there grading.
