Hi Suzette,

I tried your wonderful idea. EVERY student took home his or her
portfolio, and I got about a 30 percent return rate on the review sheets.
The parents who replied think this is great. I do thing all of us who
borrow your idea should include a credit line with your name. Thanks
again. This list has made me a better teacher.
