I have written before about how important it is to consistently communicate with your child’s teachers. For us it is imperative because otherwise we would never know what is going on during the school day. We always ask, “MJ how was your day today,” or “Can you tell us one activity that you did in school today?” Sometimes we get a response of “good” or “I had a good day today” but that is where it ends.
Today I opened up my work email to see a short email from MJ’s P.E. teacher: “Hi, just letting you know that not only is MJ doing well in basketball, he has become a lot more vocal while we are playing. He is doing Great!” Coach
That email put the biggest smile on my face. It is so comforting to know that he is enjoying other aspects of his school day. He is engaged and communicating more as well. I needed this email today. Thanks Coach!
