Please don't think that you're not appreciated. I show my appreciation by sending you a kid with his
homework done and spelling words studied. I show you my appreciation by teaching him manners and setting the bar high when it comes to respecting you, the school, and the rules. I show you my respect when I try, time and again, to make sure you're getting the best kid I can assemble for you.
The lack flowers/candy/mugs/hand stamped greeting cards isn't a sign that I don't appreciate you. It's a sign that I'm doing my best to make sure my kids are an asset to your classroom. And I would hope that's more important than all the Hallmark gifts combined.
With Highest Regards,
