As teachers we are responsible for every aspect of our students academics – positive and negative. This letter is an easy way to inform parents of their student’s current stance in your class. I usually send tis letter home, attached with a current progress report, 2 weeks before grades are due. I tell students that I will give them extra credit (2 points) if they bring the letter and progress report back to me, signed, within 2-day of receiving it. Even though they are almost failing, I will get those papers back for 2 points extra credit.
