Joseph seems very happy here at school. I do not see the behaviors that you are talking about here. He appears to enjoy what he is doing. In the very beginning he was prettyactive (disruptive type of thing), but he has jumped on board with our behavior system,stays in control of himself and is always on green light.
Thank you for your note. I will keep an eye on him and let you know if I see anything that gives me reason for concern.

Comments: Good Afternoon Ms. Mueller,
I am writing today to see how Joseph did in class. I ask because he did not get off to a good start this morning and his father and I were a bit worried about him. Please feel free to tell us were are being overly concerned and not to worry if that is actually the case. You are a professional in this type of situation and we are just a pair of novices.
He said that he did not want to go to school ever again and that everything at the school made him sad. After some whys and probing questions from me he said that "homework like his sisters have (they are in 8th and 9th grade)" would make him happy.
He also cried to me that it upset him that I wouldn't go on the school bus with him, and day before yesterday he was in tears when he told me he doesn't like lunch because he misses me so much when I don't come every day.
We do realize that this is only day seven of a twenty-some year journey and that other children may be going through the same thing. I guess my expectations were just that he would stay excited or at least complacent and just go to school and enjoy it, like his sisters did.
We welcome a reply with your thoughts and ideas. I can also make myself available anytime if you feel a personal conference is appropriate.
Thanks so much for your time,
Viki and Joe Dalbo
