Teacher Comments - 3rd Quarter
Jacob is a student who is very focused on science in particular. He takes the initiative in subjects that interest him, however, requires prompting and reminding with subjects he finds less interesting (writing and art mainly). Jacob is doing well and engaging in social activities with his friends.
