A Thank You

Don't forget to take a moment and write an end of the year thank you if you were really pleased with your child's school and teacher(s) or other school staff. Sometimes the only things that reach the Superintendents are the negatives. I took a moment and emailed our school's Superintendent about some of the staff I was really pleased with. I certainly want them to keep up the good work and sometimes all they need is a thank you or boost in confidence. We parents of special needs children have a lot on our plate, constantly. It is nice to have some teachers and school staff we can always rely on to be fair, honest, and teach our kids no matter what their challenges are. We say goodbye to 3rd grade this year, kindergarten too...but we are so ready for summer break! Yes, even ME! (3 more days)

I agree, sometimes a "thank you" just what makes a lot of difference to the people who have worked with our special kids.Stopping by and thanking all those who went an extra mile for them, makes them feel that their work has not gone unnoticed.happy break time Val.

I try every year to make sure my little guy has something to do with them also. This year I made him write to each one what he was thankful for them teaching him. It was quite interesting! He wrote to the vice principal "thank you for teaching me how to be quiet during ISTEP".. :)
