Re: AND DOWN GOES THE POPE!

No. I work with some arlington dads and there are 3 repeats on team. Arlington just a genuinely good team.


Thats surprising, do other public's have repeats? Are they repeating for athletics or because they failed other grades?

Re: AND DOWN GOES THE POPE!

I don't think there are many if they have them. If they are repeaters it's because they're slow in the classroom. Historically it was a Catholic Conf. thing. Laughably enough the hockey coaches - who are often an 'academic advisors'- tell the parents that the kid needs to stay back a year because of the strenuous academics at the schools. When in fact a marginal public school outpaces the best of the catholic schools.

athletics.
at the coaches direction

Re: AND DOWN GOES THE POPE!

We have been "encouraged" to have our son repeat this year also. Im 5' 9", my wife is 5' 6" and we are realistic people. Thanks but we will pass and let our kid move on like the other 99.8% kids who play the game.
