 So after school my mom called me & said the teacher told her she'd meant to tell her he was getting an award.  Say what????  My mom said he got a certificate because he tried to show it to her.   When he came home he showed me a wristband but didn't say anything about an award only that a lady gave it to him.  Huh.  He told me that when he got the certificate in the cafeteria he was looking around & at the chairs for me and his dad but didn't see us. :(  That's because we didn't know!

Now my son was out of school on Wednesday which is when the notice is usually sent home & he was out Thursday.  BUT my foster sister was there helping out in class on Wednesday & my mom saw the teacher after school yesterday.  She actually talked to her!  Apparently the teacher thought it was more important to give her his homework & not include the award info along with it.  And this morning when DB dropped him off at class & said something to her she still didn't mention it.  Here we were at home & 15 minutes after dropping him off at school he was getting an award.  ;(

That's pretty crappy. I'd definitely tell his teacher how I felt about it too, and Id be honest with him and tell him you wouldn't have missed it if you had known. :/ that sucks.
