Okay, just because other peoples’ school experiences have been different from mine in the past, I’d like to clarify this a little. The “report card”, for me, always came at the end of semesters a couple times over the course of the school year (usually, just before Christmas break, Spring break and Summer vacation, if I remember correctly). But in between those, there’d be an additional pseudo-report card known as a “progress report”, which does just what it sounds like; it reports the students’ current progress. It’s not terribly reliable in most cases and is usually subject to change, but my schools always sent them out. Anyway, I just wanted to include that, in case other peoples’ schools did no such thing.

And yeah, Rain’s a pretty awful student. I was too, actually (she is largely based off me, after all). I bet you didn’t think that math thing was going to be relevant, did you? ^_^

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

Also, if you enjoy the comic, please vote for "Rain" on TopWebComics!

Wow. A comic with a school setting where grades actually matter. I... actually don't think I've seen this before. I'm not trying to be funny, either. It's weird how irrelevant the "school" part usually is in the comic. o_o

Neither have I o.O Usually classes are settings for whisperings and note-passing that furthers the plot and not their education. This comic is even more awesome! <3

I always got midterm evaluations around Halloween before college, and decidedly before Halloween in college. Just sayin. I think there was one school I went to that called them progress reports.

I can relate. I didn't see a grade higher than a C- after my freshmen year.

what kind of school is this where a D is a passing grade? Also, can I go there?

If I had to guess, it might stem from Aunt Fara's suggestion early on (at the end of chapter 2 I believe) to be "not feeling well" on days when the activities were more... erm, active, for lack of a better term? So, present but not participating, bringing the grade down by playing that card too often.
