I wanted to discuss certain behaviour I have recently observed on the school grounds, and because I love teaching your children and (usually) enjoy having them in my class, I hope you don't take offense.
Mrs. Grockle, it is our policy that we treat others with respect. Any behaviour that may hurt someones feelings will not be tolerated on the playground. Running, gymnastic-like cartwheels and skipping that could endanger another is not permitted. Loud voices and shouting is disruptive.
I feel it is my duty to ask you if in the future would you please refrain from "celebrating" the drop-off of your children and limit your cartwheels, "who hoo!"ing and skipping across the lawn to your own garden.
Your embarrassed children's humble teacher.
This post has been a Monday Mission. This Monday's Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the form of a letter home from a teacher. Brought to you by Painted Maypole.
For you folks new to my blog, Monday Missions is one of the few blog-assignments I participate in regularly. It's an ingenious way of kick-starting dead brain cells. I'm so glad it's back on! Check it out and join the fun.
