Bad news?
I got a phone call while I was working in my office last week. It was from my boss in Japan. We have to go home in March.
That’s terrible news! Can’t we stay until June? I want to finish the eighth grade here.
A3: She has to go home.

Did you have examination periods in junior high school?
I feel like we had exams all the time in junior high school. What do you remember, Geoff?
I remember in junior high school each class had a combination of tests, quizzes and essays throughout the year.
Yes, that’s true.
However, music, art and physical education classes didn’t have any sort of tests in my school. Each class did have a system for pre-grading ???
I know, the participation grade.
Right. Teachers wanted to students to be active in class and work with others. Everyone has to try hard.
Sometimes participation was more important than tests scores.

At the end of the year there were final exams, we often had to do special projects like science fair. And in technology class we each built a car that was powered by a mouth-trap and rubber bands.
That didn’t feel like a test for me. I loved building the cars using mouth-traps, however I do not like mouth-traps.
Hmm.
Geoff, do you remember your grades?
A gentleman never tells. How about you, Sam?
Well, a lady never tells, either.
Well, we both did great. That’s all that matters.
Agreed.
