PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Lupita Tefolla got to see her son Max's first progress report from his seventh-grade Spanish class at Port Chester Middle School on Friday. He's getting a B-plus.
"It's pretty good," said Tefolla. "But he could do better."
Tefolla is more concerned about the progress reports she will receive next week for Max's other classes. She already received calls from some of his teachers, letting her know what to expect.
"His math, English and history grades all need to be brought up," said Tefolla.In order to help her son to work on his grades, Tefolla is getting her son after school tutoring.
She also expects Max to redo some of his past assignments to bring up the scores, which means he'll have to give up some of his free time to catch up. Until she sees some improvement, Tefolla's confiscated his cell phone.
Max didn't hide not being very happy about the whole situation, but acknowledged that he can do better.
"I have to," he said.
