I agree completely, Donna. While these comments are great starters, I feel it is best when teachers focus on attributes specific to the student. My comments wind up being quite lengthy, and I know parents appreciate the narrative. I once opened my daughter's middle school report card to see "Student is a pleasure to have in class," six times. Gave me the impression she was a pleasure to have in class and nothing more! -Genia
