take a deep breath  
I made my first PID home call. In Korean.

It wasn't the best thing in the world that I've had to do. I've been dreading to make the call, actually. Nobody wants to call a parent to tell their child is at risk of moving up to the next grade. I did the right thing; I told her what she needed to know about her kid (even if that meant ruining summer plans that she'd been planning so hard for) and forwarded the ELA teacher's email address. As the SS teacher, I have no idea what the kid's ELA grade is. So talking to the parent is pretty much useless unless I'm serving as the translator.
This is probably going to be the first of many calls. (in Korean).
I just have that feeling.

Hey, long time no see.

Question for you since this is your profession and I don't know much about it: You said "at risk." Does this mean the child has no choice? Can the parent refuse to let their child move up another grade? I always assumed this was optional. Is it not the same everywhere?
