  1. Ds plans to do dual enrollment this fall and will be taking a 2 credit hour course as one of his classes. How do I list that on the high school transcript- a 1/2 credit class or a 1 credit class? Thank you
  2. It is a small company - 25-30 people including management. And there is only 2 who handle interviews and hiring that I know of. I wonder if it would be better to call and see if management is in the office before popping in.
  3. Just seeing what is the general consensus on this. Ds (16) applied for summer apprenticeship last Monday ( for which he received acknowledgement of receipt) and sent in an inquiry Monday this week for an update (for which he did not get any acknowledgement of receipt or any update). Question is when would you consider a "no answers" as "the answer"? As you can see we are all new at this teen job thing as no one in this house had to job hunt for at least 20 years if not more so we are out of tune with the current norms. Would it be ok for ds to pop into the business office either end of this week on even on Monday to see if he can maybe catch whoever is in charge, chat and see if he even has a chance or would that be overdoing? Ds really wants to try this over the summer. Thank you so very much.
  4. So, ds submitted application for a summer apprenticeship job with local company earlier this week with references and all. Can he inquire with the company on his application (to see if he is still being considered and to make sure application did not get lost in the shuffle somewhere) or not? And if he can, how long to wait before checking? Thank you
  5. Two questions this afternoon for all the moms who been there 1. Ds had tutor this year for his Japanese he met either weekly or byweekly depending on everyone's schedule. Meetings were done through Skype or Facetime, not in person. Do I give teacher an end of the year gift, a gesture of appreciation. If so, what do we do/give? We do not live in the same city- I think it is about an hour drive between us. 2. Ds (10th grade) applying for apprenticeship with local electric company for the summer. It would be a full time 40 hours a week job with a good portion of it outside in the southern sun and humidity. My question is, am I allowed to go in and ask "mom" questions when he goes in to turn in paperwork and interview. "mom" questions meaning things ds might not think about like particular shoes he may need, or how extreme heat is handled by the company (how they handle heat stroke possibility outside and all that), maybe other safety questions due to the job itself. Things like that that usually do not come on the priority list for many teens. Or would it be seen as a bad thing if mom shows up to the interview and starts asking questions. Thank you for any advise.
  6. I feel for you- tooth pain is the worst. I am surprised the dentist did all that work in one week. My endodontist never ever did that (and I had quite a few root canals done and old ones redone). He always cleans out all the old inflamed matter and then packs it with medication to handle inflammation and possible infection. Then, a month later, he takes out all the medication stuff he put in the tooth and then puts in all the permanent fillings in. That way, there is never any issues and once the numbing medication wears out, i never need anything more than one or two Tylenol if that and mostly because the jaw is sore from keeping the mouth opened for two hours during the procedure with out closing it. It is quite possible that all that pain is due to all that work being done and no down time for inflammation and irritation to go down before the next phase of the procedure was done. Another thing, they did not clean out all of the roots. A friend had to go back due to awful pain and eventually to endodontist rather than regular dentist who kept giving pain medication and antibiotics that did not work- it turns out there was another root that was not cleaned out by the previous procedure and that was the problem. Once it was redone, no more issues.
  7. Lori D. Thank you! That will keep mine busy for a long time.
  8. Looking for clean fiction reads with werewolves or dragons. Not overly gory. No romance (specifically requested by this child). Books appropriate for 11-12 year olds. I have found some on dragons but none on werewolves that would match no overly gory or no romance. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
  9. Thank you for all the ideas. We might try another one using one of the suggestions. Ds chose time as his topic and ended up with little over 3 1/2 pages.
  10. What are the best aptitude tests available out there? (does not have to be free) Do you find them accurate or at least helpful? Trying to see if it might help Ds fine tune what it is that he wants to study. Thank you.
  11. Ds need to write a definition essay for his English class. Basically choose a word or a phrase that is abstract enough that it would have multiple meaning either by definition or to different people. Abstract enough that 3-5 page essay can be written explaining logical and conceptual meaning of the word or the phrase with definitions, history, all the different meanings and applications. Beauty, love, friendship, home are on the banned list of words. Thank you so very much.
  12. I read about it in the forums- checked it out on their site but totally forgot to bookmark it or even write down the name and right now I am drawing a complete blank on the name Its not Brave Writer. It is online, each class is quarterly- 8 weeks- each class specialized on one thing- general intro to essay, persuasive essays, expository essays, research papers, etc. They also have a complete English Program for each year from high school to I think all the way down to elementary school. I am just looking for the writing component. Any idea what class that may be? Thank you so very much
