Do these types of emails require a response?

So the principal pops into my google meets semi frequently, usually a few times a month. Sometimes he'll write an email afterwards saying things like, "everything was looking good!" or "Your kids looked really engaged this morning!"

Really short and simple. Do these emails require a response? I figure he's sending these out to everyone he's observing, and he's observing more now that he has a bit more time without kids on campus. I don't want to clutter his inbox but I also don't want to ignore it if he's looking for a response.

I've never actually gotten a complimentary email like that so I'd respond with, "Thanks, that means a lot" or something like that. I think if he's taking the time to shoot you a nice email an acknowledgement of some kind would be nice.

I like GG's line of thinking. Ideas for other follow-up comments depending on how you feel about the visits:

Thanks for taking the time to visit!

Thanks! My students were pleased to see you in our session!

Thanks! I appreciate your kind/supportive words!

Thanks! Good to have your support!
