On Wednesday after your party, Tammy had to have an operation on her wrist. I fetched you from school and took you home. Mark brought Tammy home and once she was settled, Mark, you and I went to the Wimpy in Kensington for lunch.
Having a birthday so late in the year (you are the 2nd youngest in your class - and the smallest) has shown that you might need to repeat Grade 2 next year. Your IQ is exceptional and you have scored above average for things like vocabulary, memory and maths etc but your ability to concentrate and progress shows that you are immature for your grade.
We have told you that many brilliant people had to repeat grades (including Albert Einstein) so it won't be a huge setback for you. You already have friends in First Grade who you will socialize with next year and your Grade 2 friends will still be at the school next year. Mark said that they have mentioned this to you but, understandably, you are not happy about repeating so they won't confirm it until about 2 weeks before the end of the term.
When you are in University one day you won't remember how it was in Grade 2!
Love you more than jelly-tots my darling! (And you will say - "love you more than Smarties!)
