Its report card day and as expected Thelma and Michael both get good grades. However JJ, who was expected to get straight F's except in art, winds up getting not only an A in art, but all C's ensuring promotion to the 12th grade. When Florda and James see that his test papers were all failing they visit the principal to find out what is going on. It is later explained that the principal promoted JJ in order to ensure that the school would get funding for the next term. This doesn't sit well with Flo and James who demand that JJ stay back a year until he get's his academic act together. Will JJ do what his parents expect or will he continue to skate through school?
