Dear Parent / Guardian,
Your child has been selected by his / her classroom teacher as a Pillar of Character winner for the month of December.
(words, words, words)
.... one student from the class that exemplifies that pillar. For the month of December, the focus was on the Pillar of Respect. Your child was selected as the Respect winner from his / her classroom.
(etc. etc. )
Yep, that was my kid! How proud I am! What a delightful child I must be rearing. The only problem for poor Gabriel is that now that I know he knows and understands what respect is and that he is apparently very capable of displaying respect towards others, I will be demanding it of him henceforth.
But still, I am super-proud! AND he won a Spurs ticket and a Rampage ticket (our minor league hockey team). But he only won one of each. So we have to buy ours. How respectful does one have to be to also win a ticket for at least one parent / guardian to accompany him / her to said game?
