I agree. I usually do not send anything extra home. I am in a combination class this year and I found out the week before the holiday the new grade for me sends home part of a report over the holidays. A number of the older grade parents were worried my students would not get the opportunity to do the special things that the grade does. Because of this I felt like I needed to set the time as the other teachers did. I didn't like it; but most of the children were pretty enthused about doing it.
