Prowl Press

Week of October 12th

A few days ago, I found this piece and it reminded me of what an important job we have each and every day. Take a moment to read and reflect, I hope you find meaning in it and use it's message as we begin to meet with families about their child's progress.

"A few days ago, I brought home a "snapshot" of myself. This picture was a time exposure of me that had been developing during the past weeks. Considering my many likes and dislikes, and my mood changes from day to day, I think it's a pretty good likeness of me. When you look at my "snapshot", remember this is a report of someone near and dear to you. So, please don't get too uptight if you see a blemish. I hope you will accept me as I am. Please do not picture me as being better than all the other children. Remember that all children do not learn to talk or walk at the same time, nor do they learn math and reading at the same rate. I ask you not to compare me with my brother, my sister, or the kid next door. You can set realistic goals for me, but please be careful not to push me to succeed at something that is beyond my ability. My teacher knows me as I am at school. You know how I am at home. The "real" me is somewhere in between. When these two pictures become blended with acceptance and understanding, I hope my "snapshot" will be a shining portrait"

Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to support you during Parent/Teacher Conferences!

Have a WONDERFUL week!
