Handle with Care

As educators, most of us have seen this post or variation of it throughout our career but bringing this message and phrase "Handle with Care" up to your child's teacher and school administrators would be a wonderful idea for the school to implement within their walls. This message could be attached to a newsletter, sent home in a Friday folder or displayed on a bulletin board. If not for your child another child may be having a rough time and their parent or caregiver may not know about this message that can help ease some worry throughout their child's day and let the teacher know something may be going on in their world and a little extra love couldn't hurt or address a behavior switch or emotional release.
