SD's Final Evaluation with Tutor
Yesterday was SD's last day with the tutor this summer and she had her evaluation. She MASTERED her capital letters, her lowercase letter, and letter sounds! SD also counted to 100, she did struggle a little bit at 60 and 80, but the tutor said then she counted to her tens and figured it out like we had taught her. All of SD's numbers were written correctly in direction, scale, and shape. At her first evaluation 6 weeks ago when SD came from BM's, SD had 5 of her 1 - 10 written backwards and the same weren't the correct shape or scale either. SD only knew 14/26 capital letters, 9/26 lowercase letters, and 16/26 letter sounds. SD could also only count to 12 correctly, she would always mess up 13 & 14 and could only count up to 20.
After tutoring we uploaded the pictures of the tutoring paperwork under education with the date like we have every tutoring session. In addition to that, we also messaged BM a picture of the evaluation from when SD came and said "SD's evaluation when she got here for the summer" and then we sent yesterday's evaluation and said "SD's evaluation today." Might of been petty, but we wanted to celebrate SD's progress and also have BM see it because who knows if she looks at anything we upload from the tutoring sessions, it doesn't show that information. Now there is proof that if SD gets the help and support she needs SD can absolutely progress. BM responded "Tell her good job!!! Thankyou."
Also kind of petty, but today is SD's birthday. BM has not messaged asking when she can call today or this weekend before today. As of right now, BM also has not even messaged to tell SD happy birthday, hasn't asked to call her today, nothing. It is only 10:30 am there so she has time, but I am just a bit irritated because BM puts on this big show of "I'll never be okay not talking to SD every day, but she has forgotten to call and it is looking like SD's birthday is not even on her mind.
After DH called the district and the school to see what their policy was on transfer students and placing them in a grade, DH messaged BM letting her know that both said they would put SD in the grade that the outgoing school recommended. The reason he did this is we didn't want BM running her mouth to SD that she might get to go to first grade for SD to be let down that she is going to be repeating kindergarten. BM responded "Ok I'll still talk to the school." ...... Yes, BM because you have a magic wand that you can pull wool over the eyes of the school and district even though they are going to get SD's records or convince them to change their policy for SD who isn't ready based on their curriculum just simply because you want them to. Whatever, not our problem, we did everything we could on our end and now it is all on BM.
