    Perhaps once you can prove you have raised all your grades (but still below their demands) you may be able to negotiate with them. I know Covid has complicated everything but getting help from a guidance councilor might be needed. They are used to dealing with demanding parents.
    I did the just passing thing in high-school and look at me now, pressing buttons for 22 bucks an hour!

    J/k about pressing buttons for 22 an hour

    What does vacation have to do with grades?

    I have sausage fingers also. I really liked my flip phone with raised buttons, but switching to a wireless internet provider that makes you use a smart phone as a hotspot forced me to abandon the flip phone. I am trying to train myself to use my pinkies to text and dial. My girlfriend can text using both thumbs on a smart phone faster than most people can type on a desk top PC keyboard. Of course her thumbs are probably smaller than my pinkies.

    What? That seems really odd, are you in a religion based private school?

    LOL...I dont mean to laugh but it kind of reminded me of way back when during my apprentice days, I got a new boss and he comes up to me one day asked if I knew how to run a lathe...I told him I was shown how once but never actually ran it for more than an hour of my life. "Good" he says as he shoves a print in my hands..."Here's the print, the steel is on a pallet over there...don't (explitive) up!" and walked away.

    Scrap Maker,

    Khan Academy (Khan Academy | Free Online Courses, Lessons & Practice) is better than the curriculum taught at any of the schools that my numerous nieces and nephews have attended, at least as far as stem classes are concerned. Very methodical, but more importantly, the feedback from solving problems is top notch.
