Grayson's "Yes I Can" Attitude

Grayson was worried about his grades and how he was going to continue learning once COVID-19 closed school and his education switched from in person (classroom) to online with instructional videos, and video chat with his teachers. This was a very stressful time for him, as he was still expected to learn new material/concepts (the same as if in the classroom). With his "Yes I Can" attitude, and support from mom, dad, and wonderful teachers he ended the school year with A's and A+'s.
