Hang in there, good things do happen!

I have a student who is in his second year of S44 as a fifth grader.  He started the year off at Series 10.3.  As of Monday, September 26, 2011 he was working on Series 10.5.  He completed Series 10 and Fast Tracked to Series 13.4 on Tuesday.  This, in it's own rights is pretty great, but wait.  On Wednesday he completed Series 13 and began to Fast Track.  He had reached Series 23.1 when our computers where cut out in order for Next Gen to be installed.  This morning he continued to Fast Track to Series 24.1.  That is a growth of just under 14 Series in three days time.  Now that's what I am talking about!  That is what System 44 is all about!  Thanks Scholastic for providing such an outstanding program!
