    And seriously speaking. My DD has been in all AP and Honors classes. The first semester takes some adjusting. Set your mind that you will do it and map out how you are going to. My DD like you has too much on her plate and neither of you are going to drop anything extra. What took her a few months to figure out is time management and planning ahead.

    She now checks her FB only when she comes home. Then ignores her phone, FB and computer until her homework is completed. When she is going to sleep she takes her Touch to bed and then reviews what she missed all evening. She is now able to get everything done well. It is a matter of priorities and school has to be it. On weekends when she is not competing or working she tries to get everything done that she knows of in advance. If she concentrates she polishes things off quickly.

    To be in these Honors classes as a Freshman you have to be a smart young lady. You'll kick yourself in the toshie later when you look back at your GPA because of your Freshman year. There is much time left to right your grades before the semester is over. If you need moral support, we are here!
    I work better when I am on my computer... If I have my friends there while doing it. I dont use my phone a lot anymore the only time I look at it while doing homework is if someone calls me. It is taking a long time to adjust to things. I think next quarter will be a lot easier. Band is almost over so I get my thursday back. So I dont have to do as much homework on Wednesdays. That is what my mom said about my classes... Colleges look for them.... you will have an easier time to get into them...blah...blah...blah.... sometimes I want to think that college is four years away, I dont need to think about it, where in reality those 4 years are going to be fastest 4 years of my life so I do.

    Haha I should have not posted that in the other forum.

    My cat knows when it is time to get off and start getting ready for school... he is sitting on my mouse. School today... talking to some teachers about stuff. Then practice 6-9 or whenever...working on a new thing so it is going to be held late... I may be in the chat tonight!

    Thanks Gabe!

    Poor baby, wish it could be easier but if you want to get in a good school, you have to excel at everything these four years. Friends will either be jealous, lazy or immature or very supportive of you. Those are the keepers unless they are supporting you in an immoral, illegal or dangerous endeavor. Try to enjoy it some, it is tough, but fun and important. Real jobs are a lot like that pressure cooker environment.


    Wow! That school is so far from the national norm. Wonder what happens behind closed doors that 100% don't come back.
    That is the standard at our school. When they birth, they stay home for at least 4 years, when they adopt it is about 50%. But I think that it has a lot to do with it being a Christian school and a lot of the teachers are married to "well employed" men. Was that a nice enough euphemism?



    OMG that school must have an abundance of tutors. I believe our area has a 68% return to work after leave is up.[/QUOTE]

    In this part of the country, good tutors are kept as busy as they want to be. Most higher end families use them rather then actually help the child themselves, many use them to keep the student a little ahead of the curriculum, and a lot of them use them to keep the child in a good school. Most private school kids use a tutor at some point for some subject. Just because the curriculums are a lot tougher then the publics here. So yeah, a certified teacher as a tutuor is at a premium.

    Good grades make it easier to get band and academic scholarships and a lot easier to get into. This helps a lot when you decide what your career will be so you get the higher advantages. Boring mom stuff aside, we all want you to have fun AND succeed. We are like you internet cheerleader/ counselor/encouragers.

    Smart cat. Mine knows when it is wake up time, he does something I HATE, wrpas himself around the top of my head. YUCK, that gets me right out of bed.

    re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....

    Yesterday did not finish well. We start testing in band.... that was most of our practice. I sat there for like 20 minutes crying. Then finished the night laughing my head with Erica, Jawaun and some other friends. That did not mean I was in a good mood... I am better now. They day start bad but got a lot better. Getting all the stuff in my classes I have bad grades in. Drinking monster at the moment while watching CSI NY and talking to some friends.

    Are you feeling:

    a wee bit bouncy?

    Have fun at the game. We are going home to relax. It has been a beater hee today. I did not stop for three straight hours-the phones have been insane.

    WE have been overwhelmed today. LOTS of people and phones, phones, phones. I had 18 phone calls back to back. Answer, chatter, hang up, answer, repeat. Odd the full moon is past.

    re: The Dark Side Has Cookies.....

    Sorry about bad kids Sarah!

    Yea McKayla, glad you are getting a handle on the homework.

    Chris wish I had 90 degrees. It is still raining here, day 3, it just stopped this evening. Tomorrow night, hard frost expecting 31 degrees, Sunday night predicting snow showers.

    And careful with the energy/caffeine drinks. We have had 3 kids from our Junior High hospitalized from caffeine overdoses. Hearts could not take it and their EKG's were off the charts. One child had a mild heart attack.
    Be careful girl!
