  1. Good morning,

    Last night, right before bedtime, Reed told me he “forgot” he had science questions to do. I had him start the assignment this morning but he did not complete it. Reed will have plenty of time this weekend to start preparing for his final tests. Thank you for all of your help getting Reed to apply himself more in you class. He is quite capable but needs that little extra push. Since Reed still has lost his cell phone privileges, could you remind him to bring home any study materials required for his upcoming tests?

    Thanks again for all of your hard work,

    1. Sorry for reading this so late. Reed’s been keeping up with his assignments so he must have found some time to complete them. He’s doing quite well this term. Thanks for your help.
