The last day of school: Progress and Independence

Today marks the end of Elliott’s school year. Tomorrow is a field trip that Elliott doesn’t want to go on. This year started out in a not so good way.

If you remember,  Elliott was booted from his old school for having Asperger’s.  We were left with only a week or two to relocate him.

Thankfully,  we got him into Summit Academy.  It started off rough,  because Elliott was angry that he had to change schools and leave all of his friends behind. He had a hard time transitioning and struggled with some behavioral issues.

However,  things soon smoothed out as he became comfortable.  Now he loves his new school and all of his new friends.  His teachers are top notch and were amazing this year as we all worked together to help Elliott settle in.

Elliott is very excited for summer break but is excited to return to Summit Academy in the Fall.

I’m so proud of him for doing so well this year. Academically,  he did fantastic.  On the behavioral side,  he went from get multiple warnings everyday to getting no warnings anymore.

I’m so proud of his achievements and I grateful to Summit Academy,  all the staff,  his teachers and principle for being son truly amazing. I don’t known where we would be without them.
