pThis question was actually raised by another discussion that has been going on also in the Schools heading./p
pDo you feel that you thank your PA child's teacher and school MORE than you would if your child wasn't PA or more than non-PA parents do?/p
pFirst of all, let me say that I am a strong believer in thank-yous. I believe that the teacher and school should be thanked for ensuring the safety of our children while they are at school, despite it being legally required of them to do so./p
pThere are many many asthmatic children in the school system. Do parents of simply asthmatic children go overboard to thank the teacher or school for administering puffers during the school day? I actually think /
Perhaps I am wrong and stand to be /
Jesse has asthma so he is one of the children who will get puffers at school if he has a virus. I haven't heard of any other parent talking about thanking their child's teacher or school./p
pI have heard a lot of us on this board saying that we do it. Now, when I was a kid (oh no, she's doing another one of those, When I was a girl stories..... [img][/img] ) you did give your teacher a gift at Christmas and at year /
It was usually perfume or chocolates. I have maintained that same "tradition" with Jesse and his teacher./p
pBut, in addition to the gifts that I give his teacher for Christmas and year end, I also know that I write more thank you notes - not an overwhelming amount, but more than just atbr /
Christmas and year end. I will write a thank you note each time he has had a school party and been kept "safe" again. I will write one after a field trip./p
pAlso, at the end of the school year last year, my husband and I had letters sent home to all of the students in Jesse's class, thanking the parents for keeping it "peanut free" and appreciating how difficult it may have been for them. We also sent out an almost identical letter to the students that are in the class on the alternate days to Jesse (he goes Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Fridays, but the classroom is still "peanut free" on Monday, Wednesdays and the other alternate Fridays) and thanked them especially because their child probably had never even met our child./p
pWe also live in a very small town. We had a thank-you note published in the local newspaper - the local gossip/society column for our area, thanking all parents of all students who attend our son's school for those who attempted to make it a "safe" environment for our son./p
pI know I have read on this board that I am not the only person who does this. And again, I do believe that we should do /
I don't know if everyone has to go to the "extreme", shall we say, as we have chosen to, but I do believe an extra thank-you certainly can't hurt./p
pWhat about everyone else?/p
pBest wishes! [img][/img]/p
