same song, third verse

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I thought things had calmed down at my school and we'd entered our new state of normal. (A family pulled out because I'm 'mean' and 'pick on their DS' and the cousins left, too.)

Yesterday, a child received a low grade in reading. (If it hadn't been a letter grade, as required, it would have been a U.) I know this mom gets upset about grades, so I figured her DS's grade and told her he would still have a C in reading when he gets his report card next week. When she wrote back, she was angry. (I know her handwriting.) She wrote, "It's because he is scared." She underlined 'scared' and that's all she wrote! During the test I asked DS if he was nervous and he said 'no'. I don't think he was. He just isn't a great reader. Oh, this mom is good friends with the mom who left the school first.

Headmaster told me to schedule an appt with her next week after report cards come out and he'll attend. (I want to clear things up, but my verse keeps coming to mind..."The Lord will fight for you and you shall hold your peace." Exodus 14:14)

When my class left lunch, the headmaster came in and said, "Look at all those scared kids!" Yes, it was funny because the accusation is ridiculous!

Thanks for reading.
