Eight-year-old Melvina was retained in kindergarten (K2) class. Her teacher says she needs extra tutoring. While fulfilling other age-appropriate academic milestones, a major pre-requisite for passing to first grade is the student must spell and write his/her name and a few other words. Melvina was unable to fully complete this task. Her teacher thinks one more year with working more closely with Melvina to provide the supportive tutoring she needs and deserves. GPA is happy to give Melvina another chance to pursue her educational journey. She still wants to be a doctor and is very grateful for Grace and Charlotte Brimeyer.
