My 9yo son is very bright, tests 3 grades levels ahead in reading, tests 86% plus on standardized math tests. He is bored a lot in school but he loves reading. He works hard at his evening homework and turns all homework in on time. I know that he takes a long time to complete in-class spelling and writing assignments, but according to him he always finishes them by the end of the week deadline (and teacher has never said anything). I know he doesn't always listen to the teacher the first or second time, but he isn't disruptive or being sent to the office. I had some meetings with the teacher before conferences because she wanted some strategies for him, but she has not given me any positive or negative updates since early October. Report card came this week. He was given D (Does not meet expectations) across the board except for reading. His reading teacher Ms. N(who only spends a little time with him on Tuesdays and Thursday) sent a lovely letter with great comments about his strengths and weaknesses. But his regular teacher and his math teacher sent NOTHING in the way of written comments. Every other year we get written comments. So I am feeling very angry but want to be constructive. Help me edit my initial draft below.
Dear Ms. G-
