My daughter's teacher is awesome. He really cares how his students are doing. Great job Mr. Holmes!

I'm upset about how they do the award assembly's. I've waited for my kids to reach school age so I can cheer them on and this school doesn't allow that. The first assembly we could only clap 3 times, which I've accepted. This assembly however, was very quiet and when the principal said "let's show them how proud we are", everyone is required to do some type of spirit fingers instead of clapping, saying good job, etc. My son came home and asked me why no one was proud of him. The fact that the principal wants this to be like military school and for the assembly's to be absolutely quiet is ridiculous.
