A Henry report card

[Henry , January 30, 2016.]

That’s how report cards were packaged when I was a kid. The little notch in the envelope’s edge is the giveaway.

The teacherly grimace was optional.

Somewhere in my boxes of things from my childhood, I have one of my report cards in just such an envelope. It is treasured because it bears my mother's signature for all six marking periods - probably the only time we stayed in one spot for the entire school year.

It also has a note from my teacher under Deportment: Martha has much potential, but she is easily distracted and talks too much in class.

Still true, unfortunately.

It’s great to have such stuff around.
