Note to parents

 I know I had a rough week with my students as I posted about last night. And I've seen several posts from others that they have been having much the same week. Here is the email I sent to my parents below. Feel free to use it if you need to. I already had lots of positive feedback from parents.

I wanted to send a class email in regards to this weeks class work and behaviors.  I have spent much of my time redirecting and refocusing this week.  So, I am asking to please spend a short time talking with your child about staying focused for the remainder of the school year.  We have had a GREAT year, and I don't want us to slide downhill from here.  Our progress this year has been phenomenal, and I want to continue on that path.  I appreciate your support and help in this, as sometimes it just takes a moment and reminder of school's importance.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or call me.  I know with the beautiful weather, it sometimes makes it difficult to focus, instead wishing to be at the beach, walking on the sand, and finding shells, but maybe that's just me.  Thanks again for your help and support, and if I haven't mentioned it lately, I have a fabulous group of kids that make me very proud!
