In his note Cole wrote, “Dear Presenter, I am sorry for my rude, disrispective behaveur. It was inipoprieit. I am sorry if you saw my rude behaveur. I am also sorry if I offended you. Sicerly, Cole”
Cole hand delivered the note while I was packing up in the gym and I got the distinct impression that this wasn’t the first time he had penned such a letter. As he handed the paper to me, I asked, “What is this?” “I got in trouble and my teacher made me write to you,” he answered cheerfully.
After I read his confession and apology, we had a great chat. He said he really liked the story I told about the hungry goddess who broke in half and was recycled, but his favourite assembly from forever, was when he was in grade 1 and they turned off all the gym lights and had a black light show. Cole suggested I add black lights to my assembly. I thanked him and told him I always welcome helpful feedback.
I think I’ll keep the note.
