"Red Slip" Revisited

Today another "red slip" came in the mail from the Principle at Sam's school. I was concerned when I first picked it up. Here's what it said:

We're proud of Sam Bjarnason because he is an awesome 1st grader. He is a strong reader and a super speller. He pays attention to detail and does his best work. Way to go Sam!

It signed by the principle and his teacher. Quite a difference from the last ''red slip"!

Last night Sam told us he was tired of being a 1st grader and that he wanted to be in 2nd grade. He cried for a good hour. This note made his day and he says he likes being a 1st grader again.
