Letter From School

February 4, 2007

I got a letter from your school yesterday, young man. I wonder if you can explain this.

Dear Parents of Daniel Feldstein:

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Daniel who was one of the Butler Middle School students to receive a 3.6 grade point average for the first semester grading period. Students with a 3.0 average or above are considered honor role students. Students with a 3.5 average or above are considered high honor roll students.

To earn grades of this level takes a great deal of pride, determination, wise use of time and ability, and an overall positive attitude toward learning. Furthermore, you as parents must be credited with helping to instill these values in Daniel.

We want you to know that we recognize and appreciate Daniel’s efforts. This positive attitude toward learning will certainly be the key to a successful future, and everyone here at Butler congratulates you and Daniel.

In recognition of you child’s achievement, we will be handing out honor roll license plate frames to all students on the honor roll. We applaud Daniel’s and your efforts and look forward to success throughout the school year.

Sincerely,

principal
guidance counselor

My son did not attempt to explain it, but I can: he’s a wonderfully capable young man with a fine work ethic. The school is wrong about one thing, though: I cannot take credit. The boy is who he is. And I couldn’t be more pleased.
