Thanks. I actually did the same thing! I gave out index cards, asked for
their name and number and one thing they wanted to do in my art class. Many of
them couldn't even write legibly or left off their last names, things like I check the office for numbers to make sure they are correct. I have
called some parents. I called one today, in fact, because the student got in
trouble last Friday. He had already gotten two warnings before that, so I told
him he needed to write an essay for me and bring back the behavior form
signed by a parent. Well, he didn't have it on Monday. On Tuesday I handed him a
detention slip, explained that he had a choice. He could bring the original
note in today with a parent signature and his essay or he could bring in the
detention form signed by a parent. He gave me the original note with a
suspicious signature and no essay. I called home, and of course they knew nothing
about it. So now I have to give him a detention. So stupid.

I realize that they think I won't follow through, and now it's more important
than ever that I do. I gave another detention today to a student who hit
another student. I'm trying my best to become firmer and follow through on what
I say. It's hard, but I'm trying.
