In this communication between Robert Harrell and a parent, we almost have a template from Robert that we could modify to use to answer parent inquiries like the one he recently received below:
Good afternoon Mr. Harrell,
My wife and I have been after our son for the last few days and his grades and participation at school. Do not get me wrong we have been on him for a while now not just the last few days, but over the last few days let’s just say the hammer has been dropped on our son. One of the biggest items that I have noticed is that our son has not been correctly informing his mother or me on his assignments for German. Nor has he been using his daily schedule planner to write down what his assignments are or when a test is coming up. We have both informed our son that this is to change, we want to see what is assignments are, when there is something due and when test/quizzes are going to be for German written down in his planner. I was going to ask you to also send my wife and I an email with what is assignments are, when they are do and when test/quizzes are but to save you time with that, my wife and I would like for you to initial our son’s planner before he leaves class every day. This way we can see that he is communicating with you and that he has it written in correctly in his book.
