As I got up from the table headed for the counter where the stacks of evidence of learning sat, Justin asked, did I see the note from John's teacher yet?
My heart sank. Before the Christmas break, not only had his behavior improved, he'd even "clipped up" on the behavior chart for modeling exemplary behavior. Here we are only a few days into the new semester, and we were back to the old ways.
Lesson learned: I should have more faith in my child, because this is what the note said:
Hooray for teachers who take the time to share good news!!
