Yesterday evening me and Mr Messy attended Little Prince's Parent's Evening. His teacher had nothing but good things to say about him :-) Since he started on his medication he is like a different boy, he sits still, attends to his lessons and thinks deeply about the topics covered. His teacher said he working at the top end of Year 3 maths, and his reading is great too. Obviously they are still working on his writing skills, but that is improving massively all the time - he is so proud of himself that he and his teacher can read his work now :-)
Me and Mr Messy told his teacher that, unfortunately Little Prince's new prescription for his ADHD medication won't be filled until Monday, so he will be medication free for the next couple of days. We also had to tell her that sadly Mr Messy's Dad is gravely ill in hospital and isn't expected to last the night. She said that given how deeply Little Prince thinks about things, and how he has lost so much already she will see if his his Teaching Assistant can work with him throughout the day for the next couple of days, to support him through this. I was so touched by her concern for Little Prince and utter willingness to do whatever it takes to help him. She is definitely a STAR among teachers, and we and Little Prince are so lucky to have her.
