I received an email from Nash's Music teacher

First grade goes as a group to Music and because of weekly rotation of the "specials" his class may get one music session a week, or two. This week it is two. I emailed his music teacher for the first time just to touch base and see if she needed any "supports" as Nash goes to music without any aide. This was her response:

Thanks for your note and concern about Nash in music! I love Nash!
What asweet boy he is! He is very cooperative and patient in music class.
He participates most of the time in much the same way as the rest of the
class. I read your handout and appreciated the information. I hope I
will be a good teacher for Nash and that he continues to enjoy music
both in and outside of school. Let me know if there's anything specific
you need from me to help him! God bless!

uh, must be the wrong child. hee hee
