School's Letter About Son's Test Scores Makes Mom Cry
Upon receiving any sort of communication from their child's school, most parents brace themselves for something aggravating. Even parents of straight-A students often have to navigate bureaucratic red tape, dress code drama, scheduling switches, etc. But as one mom named Alison Owen proved, not every letter home from school causes a headache. In fact, once in a blue moon, you might get one that actually makes you cry ... happy tears!
That's exactly what Owen says happened when she got her 11-year-old son Charlie’s standardized test results from Barrowford Primary School in the U.K. on Monday. Given how utterly awesome it really was, the test scores letter went viral, after Owen shared it on Facebook.

No wonder Owen was floored. Considering how accustomed many parents are to receiving upsetting, annoying, or just downright icky notes that detail what a child did wrong or that are simply impersonal form letters, this letter is a MAJOR breath of fresh air.
Of course teachers and administrators are just trying to do their jobs, but there could always be more personalization and positivity. How fantastic that this letter delivered not just solid info to parents and students, but also made their day. Cheers to that!
