First Semester Report Cards

As most of my blogging friends will know, both Brandon and Jordan are in high school. Brandon is in grade 11 and Jordan is in grade 9. Both of the boys like high school so much more than they did elementary school and it showed when their progress reports came yesterday.

Both boys did excellent. All of their marks were in the 70s, 80s and 90s, except one. Jordan just made 60% in music. He made it by the skin of his teeth as they used to say, just barely getting a passing mark. This is great for a boy who just made it through grade 7 and 8 with quite low marks.

I'm very proud of both of them. They're doing a great job and looking ahead to their future. Right now, Jordan is aiming for computer design as a career. Brandon isn't sure yet. He's trying new things and this semester has two cooking classes, one horticultural class and mandatory English. It's nice to see both boys doing so well.


  1. Congrats to both. Hope they both find their niches.

  2. Good for them, keep up the great work, boys!! I think a lot of kids do so much better in High School for whatever reason. Steve's son Scott is in grade 9 this year and he seems so much more mature now. He's loving it and doing pretty good with his grades. I remember when I went from grade school to high school, how grown up I felt! lol It's just a different atmosphere and the teachers don't treat the students like little kids as they seem to do in grade school.

    Give the boys my best!! xoxo

  3. Congratulations to the both of them!

  4. Glad they are liking high school and doing so well. Grandchildren are so special!!
