Everyone was pretty excited about this, but one student, Eugene, went nuts. He was so excited about the tour, the video camera spot, and especially, the sign. "Aw, that's so nice...Your mom is SO COOL!" he kept exclaiming. During the next class period, when I went to check on how his homeroom was behaving with the substitute next door, he said he was finished with his work, and asked if he could write a letter to someone. Of course I said yes.
About fifteen minutes later, he came back to my classroom to give me the letter--only, instead of being addressed to me, it was for my mom!
Dear, Misses R
Thank you for making the sign for us. I really apprieciated it coming from someone that I care about. I know you are real busy but, remember that your daughter and me love you.
Eugene [Insert grand, flourishy signature here]
Emily Post would definitely approve!
