I got an e-mail today (although it says it was sent Friday noon!) from the resource teacher, who has been following Jasmine's progress, saying that 7th grade math is not working out. She is failing. Duh. She just does not get math. And they jumped her a full year. And took away resource. I'm not blaming them because this is what had to be done in order for her to be in band. But it's not working.
We have an IEP meeting next Wednesday after school. At that time I'm going to ask them to be creative and look for some different ideas for her. Being a charter school, they don't offer several different sessions of each class.
Band is the one thing she loves. It's where she belongs. That was easy to see at the tailgate party yesterday.
|I wasn't sure she was going to be able to stand up with this. But she did. It's a struggle!!|
|Trying to smile. Which weighs more--Jasmine or the drum with harness? She won't normally be marching with the bass drum. She'll have a snare, which is lighter but still quite a bit of weight for her.|
|But band is where she belongs.|
|Once inside she played xylophone.|
|Kayla had a good week so got to go with me to watch Jasmine.|
|It's a public school, but they still pray!|
|Heads bowed for prayer. I hope we don't ever lose that.|
