You all are wonderful. Thanks for the feedback. I won’t be meeting
with the mother until Thursday because I’m at 2 schools. Since that

initially sent a note home about the grade – which was not signed &
Anyway, I haven’t made a decision yet about the assignment - but I
have a few more ideas now. Thank you so so much.
