    We have a special performance assembly later this week.

    Two weeks ago, I gave the heads up in the class newsletter.

    Last week, the school created special flyers which we sent home.

    Yesterday, I included a reminder in the class newsletter as well as a specific reminder on Bloomz.

    Today, a boy tells me his parents want to know when the assembly is.

    I know the feeling. I kept saying that I post everything to ClassDojo, so check there. I'll send personal, individualized or urgent messages via email, but sign up for ClassDojo if you want general info about what's going on... One parent didn't sign up, and she was the one parent who constantly sent emails asking for dates and info. I just kept repeating myself until she finally signed up.

    It seems like there is at least 1 per yr like that! :) When there is more than 1, it gets bad! ;) Even 1 is annoying!

    It's no wonder kids have problems following directions. The parents are just as bad if not worse LOL
